Having IC moderators from a wide swath of loyalties does more to keep things civil than almost anything else. 

If it were a bunch of moderators from -any- one faction the opposite types would feel no interest in being exposed to channel IC abuses.

Having some 'upstanding' IC moderators along with several 'outlaw' types is only a good thing.

Besides, most of the 'outlaw' types are 10x more polite and reasonable mediators than many of the 'good' characters.

I love the idea that a channel I run is 'anti-Amarrian'.

I mean, fuckin LOL.

Just food for thought.

Esna, Tib, Silas, Morwen, Graelyn, and formerly, Leopold, all own, or in Tib's case, condone, slavery.

I think I am the sole "antislavery" mod.

Thank you.

Don't forget me ^_^.

Re-quoting these two posts, as they are quite relevant.

(Also, Katrina's now on the team, so I think we've got two explicitly anti-slavery mods now.)

Lagging Behind

Morwen's Law:
1) The number of capsuleer women who are bisexual is greater than the number who are lesbian.
2) Most of the former group appear lesbian due to a lack of suitable male partners to go around.
3) The lack of suitable male partners can be summed up in most cases thusly: interested, worth the air they breathe, available; pick two.

Is she anti-slavery or slavery agnostic?

Either way: Congratulations Kat! Enjoy your babysitting.

By rights anything run by CONCORD should have a Gallentean/liberal slant but CCP has decided that the IGS should actually fair and neutral.  The Summit, which claims to be an extension of the IGS should be also.

Also the fact that you have characters with blatant ties to pirate factions managing a part of the IGS is pretty damn immersion breaking.   If a player wants to be a mod, then they need to sacrifice a character slot and create a new character who's ties are to CONCORD and the SCC.

The Summit is not an extension of the IGS.

It's CONCORD affiliation is actually rather loose, and with only a few exeptions, the moderators are chosen to represent an ideological spread including empire and faction pirates, and are chosen with an eye towards their reasonable behavior within the channel.  It's actually very meritocratic.

Edit:  Also, requiring potential moderators to sacrifice a character slot is unreasonable since any time moderation was required, they would have to log out of their mains, or pay for a second account.  That's utterly ridiculous for a completely volunteer position.

Historical note. It was conceived as an extension of the IGS with an entirely separate corp of moderators. The corp was funded by Amarr loyalists, hence the ownership staying in Amarr loyalist hands, but did not advertize itself as such.  It was also conceived of as a place that would basically go mostly unmoderated.

With Graelyn's administration that conception of the channel was abandoned and the claims to the channel as an IGS extension were dropped. I think that this is an improvement.
