If the hacker becomes a family member or a friend, isn’t it a bit more difficult to believe now?
We could all just lend our account to our friends and family without guidance and see the results of their contributions.
Obviously, people won’t do that, because we know the results and are enough responsible, right?
If not, managing or moderating is not compatible (we all know why…)
If it’s a family member or a friend:
1/ I don’t think it is done by someone without knowledge in segmentation.
How it is done, someone who knows where to segment these mini-segments and make them not visible from the first look of it.
Normal from 0:00 until 0:30 (as far as my screen can show. I have to move the blue bar or wait the blue bar goes on more).
If you only take a mere look from just this “first page,” you will see nothing is wrong and think that is okay and go to the next video.
But just after you go to the “second page,” you see the problem:
And it is only done where there is a break, that is to say on some particular spots.
It is the same pattern until the end of the video where the segmenter probably just thought it was okay to give his all:
Normally, abusers will use their mouse at some point, not the keyboard only because they don’t know enough how it works. Using the mouse, you create micro-gaps and they create a lot more normally. This one has 1 micro-gap.
Have you ever seen any abuser without knowledge in segmentation segment only after the “first page,” without micro-gaps (1 only from his first tries) and create only mini-segments at particular spots?
It is a first for me and we have seen a lot already.
2/ Normally, my session doesn’t last 3 months on Viki, I have to log in again.
We normally segment on computers.
The passwords are either not saved on the computer, either they are saved but it will be on a personal computer.
Who has access to this personal computer and to whom do you give access to this personal computer?
Family: okay, you trust them.
Does family go behind your back to segment on Viki because they find it fun without telling you?
Friends: okay, so you let your personal computer open to your friend, without being there and they could take a look in your mails, your files, your pictures and files, and who knows what you have saved as passwords (ex: bank).
Do friends that you trust enough to give access to your personal computer or Viki account will do something behind your back without telling you because they found it fun to do it on Viki?
Why don’t you tell them to create their own account?
Do you let your account open to them without telling them how it works or warning them?
I think if an account is opened to family and friends, it is to “watch.”
If it’s contributing, each one should be responsible for his own contributions and don’t lend the account or forbid the contributions part for the sake of others’ work or your team work. It is not a playground for them. So each one has 1 account to contribute.
Because it leads to 1 mistake and then many other catastrophes.
Do family and friends touch something they don’t know how it works without telling you whereas it is your account or something that belongs to you?
Do family and friends know how Viki works? That we can contribute? The difference between subbing and segging? How the segment timer works? How to enter? How to segment like that? The shortcuts and make only 1 micro-gap? When you enter Viki, you go to the segment timer, see that it’s fun from the first look (where?) and know the shortcuts, where to cut.
Normally the first thing you want to do is subbing. The video has been already segmented, so the subbing part was accessible.
Not subbing, but segging that way? Not a typical new abuser who doesn’t know Viki tools or the difference between segmenting and subbing.
Is Viki a playground?
Unless volunteers are irresponsible (as a moderator and a CM and a segmenter who graduated from nssa, who knows the nssa website with the channel roles guide since being a CM and a moderator), I doubt that volunteers don’t know what will happen if they let a free access to their account to someone they can’t trust. If not, someone irresponsible could be someone managing or moderating? Is it even compatible? Is it a joke?
Not only everything could be deleted or abuser could enter and work could need to be re-done:
As someone responsible, will you put the work of your team and other teams’s work in danger?
3/ If it’s once, negligence can happen.
But… twice, thrice… with some interval of time? Is it normal? Someone should look and check, no? But also do something.
Because of someone’s negligence, it is not something that Viki or your team or other teams can overlook, because let’s look what happened on this channel and who will fix?
If it happened on completed dramas with subs, who will weep?
If everything is deleted?
If Viki knew that a manager would lend her account to someone behind who has no experience on Viki and would let him go on Viki and could delete all the work, would Viki has selected that manager?
If CMs knew that the moderator was lending/will lend her account to someone behind who has no experience on Viki to let him do as he pleases, would the CMs pick the moderator?
Obviously, there are some criteria in selecting managers and moderators. I don’t think one criterion is creating abusive contributions or lending to someone who will create abusive contributions on the channel or on others’ channel, worst destroying someone else’s labor or let the hacked account being CM and moderator while it could still be hacked!
And if the hacker communicated with some other volunteers, exchanged emails or FB contact or other ways to communicate or just read her previous messages? It is all right?
I don’t know how, after a possible hack or after just these abusive contributions, this account (which is not proven to be safe for the moment) can still manage and moderate. A wonder!
At least, Viki should take these roles for the sake of these channels for some time until the situation is cleared. What will it cost, it will be even more safe since we don’t know if it’s a hacking (or could be irresponsible lending, we don’t know), but since it’s still unknown, let Viki take back these channels just for the investigation time + any CM or moderator would prefer that their channels are in safety without a hacker who could hack again. Imagine there will be abusive contributions again or there’s no hacking or no lending, in all cases, it is more safe to let Viki put these channels under their wings when the hacker is manager and moderator.
