Database Moderators Needed ASAP

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

moderations has slowed off a lot lately so i just thought id post in the forums  that i am up to 76 pages that need moderating ( 10,000 or so items) so if you could spare a little time and check some out that would be great

 Yeah, it's getting out of control, the mod queue was usually less than 300 things to review daily. now it's over 1500. some of my latest contributions sit for days with 2 out of 3 approvals, usually takes less than a day to get accepted (or rejected).

Also, I've seen a bunch of trolls and bad info lately, we got to pay attention to that.

I am feeling the same, but lately there are so many strange things in the moderations que (some really B*S* stuff) a week ago that I don't want to go through everything.

 

from my point of view the way of moderating and the Games DB should need an overwork from design, and workflow. and being honest, I don't want to work through millions of pages for systems I am really not interest in... plus strange Systems and for me not really clear how to moderat at the moment. Is this now an duplicate or should this really being in another system? plus my submit que without feedback (I have to take a longer way to check if it is accepted or denied and why is it denied)

yes i agree with both of you the moderation system needs a massive overhaul there should be some sort of a reward system I.E if you have a good approval ratio you should need less people to approve your submissions

 

Total Submitted Changes 40536
Total Pending Changes 8803
Total Approved Changes 39020
Total Rejected Changes 171

 

I would say that i have proved my worth but yet i still have to have the same amount of approvals as someone who is just starting out submitting artwork

Also i agree with you that there is a lot of poor quality and pointless artwork being submitted  lately which is clogging up the waiting list and is putting a lot of people off moderating

What are you considering pointless artwork?

Yeah, sorry about that. 1000 or so changes in the last few days are mine. Going back through my library and adding games (plus all their info/artwork) to the DB if they don't already exist. ;) 

Still got a bunch more to do. Shall I hold off or just keep going and let it queue?

This isn't a mistake, this is deliberate bad information.

Jason has already been made aware of that one, when he is online I'm sure he will take a look at it.

I just started moderating like a week ago. I actually never saw that I could until now! I'll try to put a bit more effort into it to help you guys out with the queue line.

Totally agree on some comments here, sometimes I see the exact same image that was already there and the difference is like per example 480x180 vs 480x179 pixel. Quality is exactly the same, but the only difference is 1 or 2 pixels.

are you the one who uploads a lot of 3d boxarts without region information?

yes afraid so  as my images do not state region in the title and it would take me too long to look at each one individually before submitting
