So the next post in the debacle has landed; Feedback post: Moderator review and reinstatement processes.
I was just wondering, is there going to be a CM Review process coming out at some point?
Hear me out;
Most companies these days have the concept of customer (user) and contractor (moderator), and it's not the 90's anymore, you don't get to treat your customer like king and your contractor like peasant. Contractors will just choose not to work for you if you treat them badly, we can get other work quite easily these days, more easily than you can get good new contractors.
If, as a company, you find many contractors refusing to work with your staff, you need a review process to find out why.
If you are losing the best contractors because your staff are treating them like dirt on behalf of a customer who doesn't represent the majority of your revenue, then you might need to think about how that might impact your business negatively in the future.
You are essentially just a middle man that connects contractor with customer, and the customer gets the product for free and you give the contractor some imaginary points while you utilise the platform's popularity to advertise services for your own products.
Your moderators are your contractors, and you pay them nothing other than dopamine points. Your user's are your customers and your customers will probably try to take advantage of you more than your contractors.
Your business model seems to be more and more based on treating your customers like king and your contractors like peasants and you are pushing this with a "progressive" narrative.
At the moment, the feedback you are getting from your contractors via the medium you have provided them (meta) is largely negative. When are you going to provide a framework for this feedback that you don't just choose to ignore?
