the CMs won’t add random users as language editors then… because the mess would be insane:
An editor for a non-EN language should be added as a Moderator so as to have all necessary channel permissions.
That only shows that VIKI company does not understand how the community works and this will only open new options for abusers (e.g. by being added as ‘editor’ for OL but having no clue about the workflow here nor about specific aspects for specific dramas).
If they’d asked once the community about their wishes for organization tools, subbing, segmenting and edit…
The idea is good, the implementation is unclear.
We are already aware of the editor role, TE, GE and CE.
As of now only English editors are well known positions.
What this article says is, TE should be added as English moderator, GE as Editor and CE as all languages moderator. Either they didn’t explained it well or I am not able to understand. All English teams have been doing this since ages except that GE now will be added as “Editor”. A new position? Like Subtitler, segmenter and moderator? Just a virtual position, for more designs on cover pages?
Where’s the change?
For OL, I see 2 moderators for popular languages every now and then, most probably one of them organizes the team, the other edits. Once again, where’s the change?
A new badge? This one seems to be a badge that’s really in demand
The new position is something we have been asking for, because it is useful when we want to recruit someone, to know whether he has done this before or not, on which projects etc.
I would give all three editors Editor role because that’s what they do. General or Translation or Chief. Of course the Chief Editor should also have permissions to open and close, and recruit people/add them to the team, so yes, he should also be Moderator.
I’d like to have an editor role for OL language mods too, because a OL mod does not necessarily do the edit and an editor does not recruit subbers or organize, so the best for OL would be when the OL mod could add subbers and editors as role.
