I'm more active on a few other sites, but I wish to learn from sites that are doing particularly well.
I noticed from these:
that mods have never needed to suspend a user on this site. Some users were suspended by "community" which I think refers to users that are automatically suspended due to serial voting (or by CMs?).
This observation appears to be rare, and perhaps unique to Retrocomputing.SE.
I wonder what perhaps some of the strategies the community here have employed, that have allowed the community to prevent problems from escalating to the point where users need to be suspended to cool down (for example), or users feel that they're downvoted so badly that they need to make sockpuppets to keep their questions afloat?
Do we never have to face "rudeness" from any users? When it happens, what do people do? Are there any case studies or examples of how the mods here were able to cool it down, that we at other sites can learn from? Anyone that things they have something to say about this, would be very welcome to perhaps share their experiences and wisdom so that other sites can learn.
