I mean, I opened them all today, and could only resolve one:
http://www.metal-archives.com/report/view/id/574043

It took me like an entire hour to handle it, and that really made me think about the HUGE labour you guys must be doing.
I'll make this the #1 priority on the site from now on.

Don't know where else to post this, but I'm sure you'll see it here, man (@Diamhea).

Just closed this report:
- http://www.metal-archives.com/report/view/id/581227

I understand why you'd suspect whitewashing:
http://www.metal-archives.com/report/view/id/581199
http://www.metal-archives.com/report/view/id/579350*

However, I think it's just general ignorance on his part as to whether the band was still active after he'd left in 2013:
http://www.metal-archives.com/report/view/id/441155

*There was no official announcement because the band was very much alive even when everybody decided to leave.
I don't know the band, but, reading his reports, he seems to rely more on assumptions than facts.

2008-present is correct, I reckon.

Focus on the report queue. people. I've been overstretching myself trying to simply keep it from snowballing. I shouldn't have to do everything.

Always feel free to PM me if you need direction in regard to what is top priority RE: site work.

I haven't been around much in the past two weeks... a bit busy. I still do my daily share, no matter how meagre--quantity-wise that is. Every little helps. I feel you, though, Dia; the number of incoming reports per day has become staggering.

What's the proper procedure for reports where the user that took assignment has since vanished from the site? Tonger has taken assignment for several reports, but has not been back to the site in 6 months. Is it acceptable to set those back to unassigned?

Yeah, or just close if it appeared to be stagnating. A lot of time users take assignment through error/ignorance to proper procedure and then don't know how to get back to the assigned reports.

For some reason people have a real hard time navigating the system easily.

Cleaned out the resolved queue, and set a dozen or so back to unassigned to be properly handled. Brought main queue back under 100 again.

I was not questioning his corrections. I posted the report it here because it was unsigned :)

Yep, I got that, but another user already dealt with it in the meantime.

Queue is quickly snowballing back toward triple digits, and I'm simply far too busy with the review challenge to deal with everything right now.

Reports need more attention. Let's get this back under 40.

Really considering getting rid of the ability for people to flag reports without making a site account. Most of those were dupes from the same guy with the smart idea to flag 5+ reports at a time for each error so we deal with it faster. Visitor too so I can't contact him to tell him to stop it. Plus I ended up closing 90% of those because they are simply invalid visitor reports.

I'd agree with that, Diamhea. I've tackled the queue a fair bit today and will push really hard over the next week as I have some spare time. What doesn't help is bands making 5-6 reports arguing that they are "not nazi band!!" then updating their facebook page with a Totenkopf and declaring how they embrace hate.

It's a waste of our time to go back over old reports and have to correct changes due to people whitewashing; an argument I'm very confident you've had many hundreds of times.

The powers that be disagree, so the visitor reports stay. Feel free to simply close/resolve them if it is just baseless NSBM bickering.

Report queue now backlogged near 150; actually was over 150 when I got to it this morning.

Well, I'm not going to beg, so this will be the last post regarding the current status.

Not even worth responding to such stupidity. Close and move on.

What is the proper response to a report in which the only source/evidence provided is something along the lines of "I am this person" or "I was there and I know how it happened"? In one case I simply added a note asking the user for an external source and flagged it for a moderator.

Doing my best; moving house currently so trains are running on a reduced service. Ive corrected a few report categories and chased down numerous users for updates and info requests too.

Prioritize stagnating reports, or ones without a forthcoming answer. Close, and if necessary leave a note for the user to try again if/when they can provide the necessary details/sources. Generally, visitor reports never answer requests for further input or acknowledge the requests made by the staff. So these are generally the first to simply close if nothing is coming of it.

Awesome job EC & congrats on your new rank too!

Let's prioritize the old reports as Diamhea says.
I'll help as much as possible to get them below 100.

Appreciate the feedback there Diamhea and MR - thanks for the congratulations, too!

I've tackled another 20 or so this morning so far (It's not even daylight yet). Most of the oldest dozen are now dealt with, or progressed and annotated. This is kinda fun.

Edit : Queue is now down to 106.

So, for those of us that are not able to ping a user for more information, is it acceptable to mark useless reports as resolved? E.g reports where the reporter says they're a representative of the band and nothing else? I remember seeing a post on this thread about pinging the reporter for more information, closing the report, and moving on but I'm not sure if I should do that as well since I can't attract the reporter's attention back to the report.
