20pc: admin forums

Admin Forums

Question: Wait, I've heard that there may be super secret admin-only forums here on 20pc! Is it true??

Why yes it is! We have a few admin only forums to keep the staff on one page about decisions we make and the way we treat our users, as well as a few other things.

See, here on 20pc, we like to operate on transparency and be honest with our users as much as we can. At this time we have three admin only forums as listed below.

User Promotions / Demotions & Bans

This forum is used to suggest the promotion, demotion or banning of any user. An admin/mod will suggest a user be promoted, a user/mod/admin with priv+ be removed/demoted or a user be banned from the site completely,. We cast our votes and decide. We make group decisions on these things and track them here.

Administrative Action and Support

A very simple forum where staff members ask for opinions/help from other staff members and make announcements of important things they are doing. We also keep each other informed of policies and document how to handle certain situations for our new staff members. The last thing we talked about was an upload tool making a mess of the site and that it needed to be fixed before we upload more.

Private discussions/decisions

This forum may seem a bit invasive but it's covered under our privacy policy and every site has one; we just admit it here though.

We use this forum to share pm's from the IRC and elsewhere that directly concern 20pc and its users. Under no circumstances is this information shared with anyone but staff members of 20pc. No, it is not a place where we post up people's personal issues. It is only for things that concern 20pc. We state under our privacy policy that any information gathered by our staff can and will be shared with other members of the staff, in order to maintain consistent treatment of our users.

Please note: by using our site and talking to our staff regarding the site, including on the IRC, you are giving your consent that anything you tell us regarding 20pc will be shared with the entire staff, unless the problem regards a staff member in which case the appropriate actions will be taken. We still always ask if the information can be shared but if it regards information about the site, namely rumors, we will share it with the entire staff to address these concerns as a group, while staying consistent and informed. This also applies to any mail sent to the staff

Anything in these forums is for staff only, so don't even ask to see them. The only reason they are kept confidential is because people's personal information is mentioned in some and as per our privacy policy we do not divulge personal information to the public. If you still have any questions, feel free to contact an administrator
