I see, so the % could have gone lower and it could have been worst! Hopefully, it’s closed today.
As for why it was/became unlocked, we don’t know for sure why, maybe a bug, maybe something else… We can’t say for sure.
There are a lot of maybe on my part, without knowing whole details, we can’t say things for sure and explain why, how. Without knowing more, it’s letting the benefit of the doubt and let’s turn the page, what’s important is that it’s fixed.
You know, you will meet a lot of different people with a lot of different reactions in a similar situation. It’s dealing with people without seeing/hearing them, with feelings, with their personality, with subjectivity, with their own perception of what is right and true, with their own experience on Viki, with misunderstanding (as I misunderstood the situation when reading the original post), with group effect (we tend to protect, defend, agree with our friends, normal), etc.
Sometimes, I understand people who chose not to speak.
When I talked about it to my friend, she told me, “Yes, maybe what she did was coming from a good motive for the drama, but if I was on the team and someone was suddenly coming in the channel modifying subtitles/segments without telling anything to the team, I would be a little upset because maybe, I will have to go back and change/edit previous subtitles which we already spent time on, like doing it again, and it’s team work that’s why I think it’s important to say something to the team before doing something”. (But reading your latest answers, we understand that it’s not about modifying subtitles so “it’s not that important” (= no negative impact like additional sub editing work, etc. but it’s still necessary to say something to the team before)
My reaction was different from her, for me:
1-There’s a problem = 80 % translated and problem with abusers segments
2-A solution = you tried to find a solution (on your own or not) and sought Viki for it. Viki’s solution = you becoming CM.
3-Viki’s solution = final decision for me whatever people can say afterwards, Viki is the referee on matters on channels, between volunteers because it would be more objective than us, volunteers who have friends, who have personal interests, who have many things that Viki doesn’t have and it’s in Viki’s interest to assure channel’s well being (like the regulator State).
4-Is the problem solved? Yes.
But it’s not because we had different visions on this matter and different reactions to it that she’s not my friend anymore or we didn’t become mad at each other. We interact to share the way we see things, learn more and maybe change it if it’s wrong (and it’s also what this forum is for me, a place to interact and exchange same/divergent visions and change/improve).
So what I mean is, for her, it’s normal to say something to the team (even if it’s you who will fix it and nobody can do anything). It was something really important for her to say.
For me, I was more focusing on finding an answer to a given problem and whoever brings a solution, it’s quickly fixed (and maybe, it looks more like your way of functioning? I think I quite recognize myself in what you say XD As a consequence, if I had a problem on a channel while I would be away unreachable and someone was correctly fixing it for me, I would be like “Alleluia, thanks a lot!” but it’s because how I function that I have this reaction and maybe a few function the same and what I understand is everyone, every volunteer on Viki doesn’t function the same way as we do). And when she exposed her pov, I agreed with her that yes, she was right, communication is something we can’t avoid even if our good intention is here. So, that’s something that I should have added in my previous scheme.
- The other point that seems to be written here is the response to your intervention on the drama and your reaction to it.
It’s this sentence that makes me say “you didn’t pick the easy way”, I meant “It would be best to be elsewhere than here when being appointed CM by Viki” or “If CM or to decide if being CM is for us or not, better to take some example elsewhere or to try somewhere else where there’s no problem at first hand (from scratch)”.
It’s this sentence, this feeling of yours that I found a pity. You decided this because of this experience, it was not comfortable for you. And how much did you perceive this response negatively to make you take this decision?
So I just wanted to say, don’t give up on trying being CM because this time when Viki appointed you CM has been bad on this drama, it was a really particular case.
And honestly, if I see a CM who fixes himself his own channel, I would tend to think that this person wouldn’t be a bad CM.
As a volunteer, I shouldn’t discourage potential volunteers who might do a good job on being CM.
Don’t be discouraged by it, maybe take some step back, or let time do the rest if it’s not already done. Just know that we have different reactions and I would have had a different reaction and my friend too, so maybe elsewhere where you will be CM, you will enjoy it a lot
