Q&A

Welcome to Codidact Meta!

Codidact Meta is the meta-discussion site for the Codidact community network and the Codidact software. Whether you have bug reports or feature requests, support questions or rule discussions that touch the whole network – this is the site for you.

Chat feature for Moderators

I have some questions. Actually, I learned from SE, that "separate questions or, do not ask multiple questions in one", which is why I am not adding multiple questions at once. But, if we can ask multiple questions in one question on Codidact, then I will do that next time. ~ Discussion ("status" tag doesn't depend on the question).


I was thinking of moderators. I am not a moderator anywhere, but, I have this question cause, this may help other moderators also. Moderators could have different opinion on a question. Suppose, a moderator closes a question as Rude. But, another moderator opens that question again. He is saying that it is not rude. The moderator who closed the question did some research on the question again. He is saying that it is rude indeed. So, they have to discuss now. Currently, there's no place where they can discuss.

They can discuss on Discord.

But, Discord, or, any other social media won't be a good place for discussing on this topic.

There's a comment section.

But, that should be completely private (between moderators and staff) ~ not necessary. But, comment section won't be a good place although.

So, I would request for chat feature (not like SE, this feature only can be access by mods).

There's another reason of saying it. On SE, a few moderators close a question together. While on Codidact only one moderator can close a question.


Our current comment system is more useful than, chat system according to me. I am adding some more information for the question also as I said thread is more useful. Now, what I want that is some private thread which only can access by moderators and staff.

There's another feature I want to implement that is, if any moderator or staff wants to add some more people (users) to a private thread system then, user with the Curate privilege can know what happened to "those things" (the problem which I talked about earlier). (Only when moderators give them access to that thread).

We eventually do plan on having integrated chat, including different access levels for different user groups (such as moderators). However, we do not have the resources (such as available developer time) currently to build one, so we're using Discord.

Whether or not a question should be closed is a discussion that should in most cases be public. This could happen either in comments or Meta.

In the event that moderators need to discuss something privately, we set up moderator rooms on our Discord Communities server. These can be available to either all moderators or moderators on a specific site, as well as being visible to staff. (We encourage all moderators to join that server when they're appointed.)
