I’m definitely slow finding out about this thread… but I’ll try to make this short.
First off, I totally know the person we are talking about… I’ve been burned so many times that I’m like Cerejacult… don’t trust anyone!
That being said… CMs and new CMs need to be prudent in choosing their moderator staff. It’s so easy to look at page and find people who have contributed for years. I do NOT trust anyone who has over 50,000 subs in less than a month. CMs really need to pay attention to who they are adding to teams. Also, once you get a language moderator, THEY SHOULD FIND THEIR TEAM, not the CM. Language moderators know who is diligent and who speaks their languages fluently. Sorry, but if I get a request to join my team and they can’t write to me in proper English (to be an editor)… you will be scratched off my list fast. CMs and other language moderators have no clue about who knows the other language better than the one they already know.
I can read, write, speak Spanish (living in South Texas will do that to you) but it’s not my first language and you will never see me as a Spanish subber or moderator… So why do so many people go to other languages to sub when they should stick with their first language. Viki is NOT a place to test your skills as a subber, editor, or whatever.
So if someone asks me to join the Indonesian team, I’ll send them that moderator. There are simple things that can be done to keep “trolls” and those testing their language to join teams
Don’t trust anyone… or send them to someone you do trust who knows the language they are applying for. If we all help each other out, less damage will be caused.
This is probably a whole lot of rambling here but so many thoughts coursing through my brain at once.
