illuminata's Journal: Have I Been $rtbl'd? EDIT: It Seems So... 3

Journal by illuminata
Well, despite having excellent karma at the time of this post, I can't get any +1 posting bonus. Ever since I've enabled reporting of metamoderation results (not long after I was able to metamoderate), no results have been shown. I've never been able to moderate, yet I haven't been posting anywhere below neutral for quite some time.

I haven't peered into Slashcode, but I have heard a little about the $rtbl ordeal. Considering what's been going on with my account, does it seem like a moderator has used the $rtbl tag on me? If not, what else might be going on?

EDIT: It looks like I have been $rtbl'd, many posts with excellent karma and still no bonus. And, absolutely no messages are being shown, not even comment moderation.
This discussion has been archived. No new comments can be posted.

Have I Been $rtbl'd? EDIT: It Seems So...

  • If you don't/can't moderate, you can't be meta-moderated, so you won't see any meta-moderation results messages. So, this fact isn't a valid indicator of anything. (-1 Offtopic ;)
    • Aah, I thought that the metamoderation results were to show how your metamoderating affected somebody else's moderation.

      Well, it's a good thing that I have somewhat of an explanation. Person #1 mentioned in a bit of a flamewar that they couldn't wait to see Person #2's moderation when it came time for Person #1 to metamoderate, implying that they were going to mark it unfair.
      • Wait, wait, wait. Shit. I meant to say that Person #1 couldn't wait to see the metamoderation results once they came across person #2's moderation, implying that they were going to mark it unfair.

        There you have it, that's what I meant to say. I think something's in my egg nog. I better go check.
