Last night Simon and I received the final message we needed from the
Helpmebot has had all functionality restored except comments being live
posted to the channel. It is because it contains non-public data and is
have to lock the channel down, and it will remain open.
We have two new actions (well not necessarily new) that will get you
*Inserting *non-public* data into the comments of ACC - This is in
violation of the data retention policy that the Foundation follows and
would require Simon and I to review every single comment put into the
system and remove this type of data if we allowed it. For all existing
members of ACC that are subscribed to this list, this is your warning.
For new members, we'll try and make sure they know of this rule. If they
don't know about it, they will get 1 warning. After the 1 warning (or
this message), any further violations will result in a timed suspension,
probably starting around the 1 or 2 week mark, because this is very
serious. Repeat violations will cause permanent suspension.
:*Non-public data in this case includes anything that is, is
commenting on, or that can lead to non-public data collected by the
system. This means that the email and the IP.
*Releasing information from the tool or the mailing list outside of the
interface or mailing list - The Foundation takes our tool as about as
serious as they would with CheckUser as our interface contains similar
data available to you. All violations of this rule result in an
immediate indefinite suspension. This also requires that Simon and I
report such violation to the Foundation. I have been asked to let you
know that this could result in the lost of your identified status at
meta and the ability to identify in the future.
Any violations of these two rules do need to be reported to a tool
administrator, which will be forwarded to Simon and I. Simon and I will
be available if you don't feel comfortable talking to another tool admin
for whatever reason. We will hold the reporter's name and the report in
confidentiality between the two of us and yourself. (I don't see any
other reason why other tool admins wouldn't do the same, but I'm
mentioning it as an option)
I really enjoy working with you guys, your a great and diverse team, and
I hate having to get this serious, but it's the nature of how things
have to roll. If you have any questions about this, please let Simon or
