From the Admin [Please Read]

Recommended Posts

Hello all! I hope you're enjoying the Carversite! and all it has to offer. Since there have been some changes recently, and a few more changes coming, I'd like to address some of these and explain the current 'State of the Site'.

 

The current Administrators are:

B-Man - Administrator

Sk1bum - Community Administrator

Nahash5150 - Tech Staff

 

 

The current Moderators are:

Compwaco - Chief Global Moderator

DennisMiller55 - Content Manager

Charlie - Global Moderator

Kve777 - Global Moderator

 

An Administrator's job is to protect the community. Admins also assign medals, approve new arrivals, organize the boards, moderate threads, assign roles, maintain the database, enforce the rules, and manage complaints. They also present ideas to the leadership for possible implementation.

Moderators keep the boards safe and fun. Moderators are not here to stifle free-speech, arm-twist or intimidate participants. They ensure that threads are kept organized and remain on-topic, and as active participants themselves, preserve the spirit of the community. Moderators, like the Admins, are here for you so that you feel welcome to share and participate without the worry of being harassed or flamed for it.

 

If you have just signed up, then you are Inbound rank. You have limited access and you can't upload files yet. In order to advance to basic membership, you need over 6 positive reputation points. Reactions, such as 'thank you' to your content increase your positive reputation.

 

There are three basic member Roles:

Novice

Member

Resident

 

A Novice is new to the forum. They have limited access but can participate in the most popular forums such as Way Offscale and The Chain. In order to advance to Member, we expect a certain amount of activity to evaluate their willingness to be a part of the community. The post count required to advance to Member is 100. (If you are currently a Member and don't have 100 posts, you will not be 'demoted').

A Member is considered an active participant. They have nearly full access to the site and its resources, and can progress in rank and earn medals by sharing their experiences in the audio world with the Site. As time goes on, a Member can eventually become a Resident or play a role as part of the Administration.

A Resident is a highly active member who calls this place home and acts as a council member with the Administration. Residents are participants who are willing to take on the challenge of discussing site policies and provide the site with valuable resources - such as funds, time and talents. Greatly concerned for the site's well-being, Residents work hard to welcome new 'inbounds', encourage participation by starting topics of interest - and offer Karmas, skills and knowledge to all who visit.

 

There are two special Member Roles:

Carver mkII Team

Carver repair/mod Team

 

Carver mkII Team - The mkII Team members are authorized to perform the mkII mods. Generally, an mkII Team member performs mkII mods full time, and can offer assistance and advice for those mkII DIYers who post their mod activity. These team members are Residents by default.

Carver repair/mod Team - Chosen only by the Administrator, these members are trusted with their skill to work on audio gear. They actively take work and offer a variety of services. They are also essential to the site's 'helpful hand' in assisting those who need help with their troubled gear. Carver Repair Team members are also Residents by default.

 

There are two consequential Roles:

Retired

Sandbox

 

A Retired Member is a participant who has either shown a disinterest in the community but has not violated the rules, or one who has 'moved on' and no longer wishes to be an active member. This is not a disdained Role, but a Role for members who for one reason or another, do not wish to be part of the community's growth (for example). Retirement is a friendly, mutual agreement between the administration and the member. Retired members have limited access.

When a participant is Sandboxed, they have violated the forums rules. A warning is always issued before a participant is Sandboxed. If the warning is ignored, and participant continues to break rules or cause trouble - an Administrator, with the consent of the Moderators, will curtail their activity for an indefinite amount of time. Removal of the Sandbox status can only be done by the Site Owner or Administrator.

Our goal is to maintain a site that is welcoming, helpful, courteous and fun. With audio and Carver as our common ground, we wish to stay focused on the music, and all the creativity that results.

 

Have a great day!

Hashy

Ditto, Hashy. What Ben said.

After hanging around for a while, this preempted a lot of Q's I had.
 
Nice structure, and protocol.

What you don't see is discussion between the Residents on anything that has to do with the up keep, policy discussion, ect of the site...
 
What you didn't notice is nothing has changed. All the threads you have ever read or commented on are all still there. There are no ratings.. the Irku has been gone for a while now, your either here or your not. It looks like your still here...
 
This is a new road we are heading down that does not hinder any members or membership here. I'm sure you have noticed lately that everything has been cordial on both sites. We are all playing nicely together for the most part, so in spite of what has happened in the past things have taken a turn for the better. Lets be happy with it. emwink.gif

Post counts are fun and I like them.

Sometimes a guy with 10 posts is more up to speed on a given topic than one with a million.

Having many posts does not make one smarter or his post more relevant, just means he posts more (which is needed and desired on a forum).

I hope in time to be up there where I can read all.

I actually am kinda dumb, but don't hang that label on every guy with few posts.

Actually, as this seems to be the more tech oriented site, I felt (and still feel) waaaay out of my league a lot of the time.
I can learn tons of info here by just reading.
On top of that, often while some are getting to know people, I personally will stand still and observe, attempting to find out where I fit in before I barge through the China Shop. 
Unfortunately, both of these things tend to keep post counts low.  So the first year for me was tough.  You find your strengths.  25 years of being pretty particular in a certain specific area, you have insight.  You have ideas.  You know what works.
But hell, I can give anyone shit now.  Cuz they know who I am and what I am getting at.
That in itself, is what makes this great.

Another thanks for the info.
I too lurk around here to laugh and learn. I post what I am involved in, but. Unfortunately, most of my life's involvement doesn't involve audio equipment. Yet...eusa_whistle.gif

So I have to ask as I wasn't paying attention when I created my account, will my login get purged if I do no posting for 30 days, or just go into a dormant pile? I have on more than one occasion been without internet access for 30 days at a time. Once you hit member does this not become an issue? Other than that concern, I am finally done lurking and member'd up. I have been enjoying the forums for quite some time. I missed the animus mentioned, your sandbox sounds like a good solution.

This looks like something that should be in the Guidelines tab or similar, at the top, where it can be kept easily available for new folks, and those of us with really short memories.  It just seems prone to getting lost or buried in a thread.  :-k  9_9

Thanks for the explanations of the member levels and introductions of admins and moderator. Looks like a very organized group here and happy to join in. I will definitely be seeking people that are willing to work on my equipment for me so thanks for the tech intros also.

Providing information about the site is a very good idea. It gives everyone a chance to get acquainted more quickly and to know who to contact. Thanks! I am a newbie to this site but not to Bob Caver. I have a multi-page use and operation manual received from Bob for a product I did not see listed that may be of interest to other members. Looking forward to sharing stories and swapping information about Bob's many bold designs. Many have already proved to be important to the history and advancement of Audio.

Hello straylight, and welcome to thecarversite.com. We're glad you're hear. ;) There is a lot of information here, much technical know how, and a pretty good bunch of folks that are happy to help.

 

While it's not a requirement, a good place to start is by making an introductory post in The Welcome Shop. Once you've advanced to Novice, consider uploading some pics of your gear in the Members Systems area. We all like pics of all kinds of audio gear.

 

If you have a pdf file of your manual, it will be a welcome addition to the Manuals area. @dennismiller55 is in charge of that.


In the meantime, kick your shoes off, turn up the music, and welcome aboard.
