Announcing our first group of Cardano Ambassadors!


#104

Friendly reminder, let’s keep it civil.

Always Be Civil

Nothing sabotages a healthy conversation like rudeness:

  • Be civil. Don’t post anything that a reasonable person would consider offensive, abusive, or hate speech.
  • Keep it clean. Don’t post anything obscene or sexually explicit.
  • Respect each other. Don’t harass or grief anyone, impersonate people, or expose their private information.
  • Respect our forum. Don’t post spam or otherwise vandalise the forum.
  • We take harassment seriously. Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, but also includes deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, sustained disruption of conversation. Harassment of admins or moderators will not be tolerated.

These are not concrete terms with precise definitions — avoid even the appearance of any of these things. If you’re unsure, ask yourself how you would feel if your post was featured on the front page of the New York Times.

This is a public forum, and search engines index these discussions. Keep the language, links, and images safe for family and friends

I am off for a run. When i come back i will show you why our Ambassadors should not be anonymous and why @tom.kelly and @maki.mukai should do back ground checks.


#106

Not anonymous

Background checks; after you


#107

Regarding Cardano ambassadors, we’re talking about members of the community that create legitimately helpful content or other efforts related to Cardano.

Just wanted to point out that there seem to be few people with strong opinions with very few post likes. Majority of likes are related to posts that don’t find anonymous names an issue in the ambassador program.

Can that settle it for now?

Is there any possible way to close this thread so the ambassador selection process can have it’s own thread?


#108

Is this your version of Community consensus? :slight_smile: Really?!

Give me a break.

I don’t think Anonymity and Ambassadorship go together well.

The likes in this thread is by far no reflection of the Community opinion and should not be taken as a representative “result”.

Maybe majority of Community is fine with it, maybe not


#109

Why not? Do you have a proposition for a better measure? Maybe after one day it’s to early to call it a “community opinion” but if we look into it after a week and see that there are much more likes in the posts pro “possibility for anonymity” than in the posts against it, I would say that indeed it’s a kind of measure of the community opinion.

Maybe we could install a forum area where everyone can express his opinion to the different questions by voting. In any case we should take care that “community opinion” is not becoming defined by the loudest voices but by the majority of voices.


#110

You have maybe 50-200 people active in the Forum, 6000 signed the petition and the Community is from 50k-100k.

This is one social media channel, you have Reddit, Twitter, Facebook & Co.

No you can wait a year but you can never conclude any Community opinion by the likes on the threads here … sorry.

Though we badly need an infrastructure for Community voting, I agree!


#111

This is my conclusion to this thread:

https://forum.cardano.org/t/cardano-ambassadors-cardano-community-champions


#112

By the way: One thing about the ambassador program I personally don’t like is the possibility to nominate yourself. I think this should be cancelled and nominations should be only possible from other people.

Ok, you’re right. That means that “community opinion” has to be recorded at one central place, so CF has to provide such a place for everyone.

The likes here only show the opinion of the part of the community who visited the forum and read this thread. That’s much less a statement than “community opinion” but still it’s a statement.


#114

Guys I realize a post was taken down & @knysna being suspended.

What happened?


#115

The post was flagged. I resolved it by suspending @knysna for 24 hours, as well as deleting the post to limit the spread of negativity. It’s clear @knysna feels disenfranchised, but this type of behavior will not be tolerated. Please refer to forum etiquette.

#117

I don’t think you would. I deleted it for a reason though, to stop the spread of negativity, the back and forth bickering and fighting. Digging up each other’s personal lives, and digital footprint and using them as personal attacks. I too have a search engine, so do “filthy mouths, monkey faces and anonymous.” For the future please let moderators moderate.


#118

There should be clear & agreed protocol communicated for suspending someone.

Banning @knysna based on that message was a bit way too harsh IMO. Maybe delete post and ask to rephrase would have been more appropriate?

If someone is subject to criticism, then the same person should not be allowed to use his admin power and ban the other person IMO.

I do believe he had good intention with sharing example content that should be cleaned up to match the Ambassador role.

Guys, he is a good man, successful businessman, who loves Cardano, heavily invested and could be our father. Let’s give him some respect.

You can also moderate with style.


#119

The ban is for 24hours, the minimum amount. To allow heads to cool off. I’m impartial, I don’t see it as a personal attack. I see it as infringement of forum etiquette, which I already posted once before as a warning.


#120

You seem to mix up what people are with what people do.


#121

Maybe it’s like this.

Nevertheless it should be a strict rule that a admin doesn’t delete posts and bans people if he is involved in the posts in question. You should have told the other admins to have a look and to react if necessary.

By the way: The video looks more as you are actor of some kind of soap. I wonder why @knysna took that for serious. This video says nothing at all about your competence and integrity as a Cardano Ambassador.


#122

Moderator not Admin and I wasn’t the only one involved. Other moderators are mentioned as well. What if all the moderators are mentioned together, who will be left to do the work? I am one of nine moderators, my actions can be revoked.


#123

This is a fantastic example of why people may desire to remain anonymous in a wide open public forum such as this.


#124

BTW for what it is worth I’ve met Sean in person and corresponded with him on several different platforms. I find him to be of excellent character and think he is an asset to the community.


#125

Thank you @Donnybaseball
