It seems I’ve become a Regular here on Discussions. And it’s not just an honorary badge, either. It entails certain privileges as well. Next step: Leader
But I doubt that’s going to happen since leaders are handpicked by Viki staff. And you know me…
Still, Regular is pretty nice. Thank you.
There are many who are long overdue for the Leader trust level, especially since they are always reachable via discussions. Once a Leader, always a Leader? I just tirelessly went through the profiles, and it’s pretty bad. There are about four active leaders, out of a total of 28. https://media3.giphy.com/media/U84Kd73d36G2NfPQWE/200.gif
Now here are two interesting questions. Are Leaders picked only from those with a Regular Badge? What are the criteria used by Staff to select Leaders?
You are hardly here so that really surprised me. I am not too fond of this badge, and can’t understand why they created something that can bring some conflict too.
Is annoying to see that someone can go into anyone’s posting/thread, and change things on them without asking first (it happened to me a few times by different people here), this badge entitles achievers of this badge/ ‘‘regular’’ to do so. Anyway, I would never touch or change/edit anything other ppl. wrote bc in my opinion, that’s an invasion of privacy, and that’s why I felt so offended by it when it happened to me and made a big deal about it back then.
Praying that PEACE continues to be with us all. Stay safe my dear friend, and your mommy too. Stay strong. I saw in the news how close Romania is to this war conflict and I got so worried I could hardly sleep thinking of you and your family.
Okay, now I’m really curious - how on earth are Regulars able to edit other’s posts? I am a Regular, and I can’t see any controls that allow me to do that. To my knowledge, it was only jeslyni, sean and the others who could do stuff like that.
In the description for a Regular, it states thay you can only recategorize or rename a topic, not edit a post. I still don’t have any options to do either of that.
Not sure, but you have to be consistently present and active here for a few months. If you become a Regular and then stop interacting and visiting the site, you go back down the levels and become a Member and then a Basic level user.
They took that out, but it was done in the past. I have screenshot to prove it, but won’t bc is all in the past and I forgave the ones who did it already. As far as I’m concerned that option of editing people’s post here, and as far as I KNOW, is no longer available to be done by ANY REGULAR badge ‘owner’ (like us) to do so.
I tried a while back, and it didn’t work, so I know the option was removed. I believe now ONLY the staff members WILL be able to do any editing or whatever; if they choose to do so in our thread/post without letting us know first.
This thing happened a long while ago so you missed the show.
I’m not sure there is a link. From what I understand, Leaders are handpicked by Viki staff. It’s not a Democratic voting system. So, I’m sorry, but don’t think I can become your Leader-elect, not if it means I have to please higher-ups. My sole priority is you, the Community.
Please know that you are my motivation, dear friends. I would do my very best to ensure you’re as happy as you can be in this Asian drama world of ours.
