Forums - Announcements - VGChartz Moderator Evaluation Survey 2016

Hello People of VGChartz!

I'll keep this one simple and to the point - the time has come for another Moderator Evaluation Survey.  

Each Moderator makes a commitment to the community when becoming a moderator.  We'd like feedback from you about how we're living up to that commitment.

There are 10 questions in this survey.  The name of each moderator is included in each question.  For each question, please choose an option from Strongly Disagree, Disagree, Neutral, Agree, Strongly Agree.

A few comments and answers to likely questions:

  • Please look at the rating scale carefully to ensure you provide the rating that you intend to provide.
  • Please answer for yourself.  Not your perception of what others think.
  • You do not need to answer for every moderator for every question.  If you don't have enough information to answer for somebody, just leave that row blank.  Leaving a row blank is the N/A option for this survey.
  • That said, please do your best to answer as completely as possible.
  • Remember to click "Submit Survey" at the end.
  • After completing the survey it should direct you to a new screen and say Thank You.  The screen will be green.
  • I intend to run this survey quarterly going forward.  I'll use learning from this round to fine tune the survey next time.
  • I haven't left space for comments.  If you have comments that you'd like to share with me privately, you can.  You can also message me with feedback about the structure of the survey itself.

Thanks for participating!
Miguel_Zorro, Axumblade, Carl2291 and the Moderator team.

Question 1: answer choices don't match question. "strongly disagree" for never knew, "agree" for known since mod, "strongly agree" for known since before mod?

Hey Sam,

The intent of question 1 is to ask - Have you heard of this person?  Did you know they were a moderator? (aside from seeing their name in this survey)

I've adjusted the wording to hopefully make the intent more clear.  



So Q10... if I can`t even remember the last time I saw a moderation (or in some cases even a post) from a moderator should I put that as `strongly disagree`? Just seems like that would be me implying that I think they`re a shit moderator although I don`t necessarily think they`re bad at it, just not active enough to see them as effective at it.

I made a small edit to the survey to fix a glitch. If you were one of the two people who filled it out already, please re-do. :)

My advice would be to base it on your overall impression.  Recognizing that being a moderator involves much more than just handing out bans.  If your impression is that they're not doing any of the things involved in being a moderator, that should definitely impact the rating.



Gave me an error message. "We can't find the page you're looking for."

Ok thanks, done it now. I just put the mods that I haven`t seen much of as neutral for that one. At least some of them I know are still doing stuff in the background (or at least I`ve heard they are) so that seems like a fair place to put them.

This obviously won`t be shared but I think it would be pretty funny to see what biases some people think certain mods have. I bet they`ll be at least one mod who`s like `somebody thinks I`m an (insert console here) fanboy? But I don`t even have an (insert console here)`

Oh and out of interest, is there going to be like an award for the moderator with the best results? A mod of the year (or quarter) award or something.
