Should we talk about CMs who give their place to another CM friend. And the CM friend then decides to delete some moderators to favor friends? (It reminds me of an old past that we would rather forget) Or even CMs who give first to their friend without taking into consideration those who may be interested. Or CMs who think they know better than others (for number of contribution? Really, you are absurd!). We have been talking about Linda since the beginning, but she is not the only one who does stupid and greedy things. Yes, she is the empress but there are many other imperials persons around here.
Well, with all that you, everyone, have been saying for a week, I can see one thing: viki community is rotten. But it is we who let this become so. And it is vikistaff which is useless, to put rules. I blame members of the community, but I also blame vikistaff, vikirepresentants and myself to participate in this.
And it’s not a question that everyone is afraid to say something, it’s a question that everyone is involved in stupid bad tricks. Many other people do not care because they know it’s stupid and are better than that. But when did we lose our moral? We are talking about things inherent to viki organization, but there are really more serious things happening. I just want to remember everyone that Internet is a space that is still managed by laws. Although viki does nothing to impose rules, remember that the law still exists. And if you get harassed, insulted or anything else, you can file a complain! Cyber-harassment is severely punished now. NEVER FORGET that behind your screen, you are not safe from punishments and law!
Back to Viki, whether it’s CM’s place or moderators, I admit that people’s greed, I do not understand it. I am really sad that people have come so far for a mediocre position, which will certainly not determine her/his life. All the tricks you put in place make me pity: by friends, second accounts or anything else.
I know that the human has an aggressive part in him determined by his desire, however, we are subject to social codes, rules, laws and fundamental laws. I know that Internet can be a refuge for everyone who thinks they can enjoy an omnipotence, but do not forget that you are not all-powerful, you are not God. You are just one human being, a nickname or even a number (for those who still believe that the number of contributions can give value to one person, which makes me even more pity). Whether you are English, Chinese, Korean, French, Spanish speakers or any other language, we are equal. If you believe you have more power because you have more skill, or you have “friends” OR because you are close to vikistaff members - who are also humains - you are mistaken heavily. To enjoy superficial power for an ephemeral time… is ridiculous. (Ps : “Friends” because we all know we have no friends on viki, you are mostly in utility relationships and that’s all)
But I know that our complaints here will be useless and that this post will never succeed in anything. I am glad that some people can still express themselves. It relieves a little. Even if everything continues. I do not expect anything from that. Nothing will change. Maybe, the best people will leave viki. And they are right.
One thing is sure, I do not want to be part of a community like this anymore. I will not participate in this anymore, and I will not accept anybody like that in the future for any position (you can also put me in your blacklist of French moderators, I do not care about it. Anyway, it will change nothing since you have your favorites, and it’s usually never me. Or me, but because you know that I’m CM sometime and want favors) I will greatly favors newbies. My conclusion is here: My life is worth than viki and if you need viki for living, then keep it.
Anyway, we all know that one day viki will disappear in favor of another great platform that you all know. I can not wait to see this day happen.
Anna is fed up.
