Lets Talk, News, Official, Staff
1 January 2018 - Let's Talk: Backseat Moderation   WolvHaven has been running for over 6 years and has seen many people come and go. However, in recent years, a new phenomenon has landed on our shores and has remained etched in our community - backseat moderating. Backseat Disruptive & Substandard Moderating (BDSM/Backseat Moderating) and how it hurts the server Let's all admit it. Some WolvHaveners have a serious problem.

Changes to verbal warnings 2018

Changes to verbal warnings 2018

News, Official, PSA, Staff
Let's start 2018 by setting things right. With effect from 1 January 2018, some changes will be made to verbal warnings for veteran players on the server. Staff have noticed that players - especially the veterans have been breaking the rules at a higher frequency since 2017. This is largely due to the leniency that is offered to players who are ranked citizen and above, leading to many thinking that they will always be able to get away with breaking the rules. We want to put a stop to this and we also expect our veteran players to display a standard fit for veterans. Happy new year. Let's work towards a better, more welcoming community for all.

Honestus Esse…

News, Official, PSA, Staff
Honestus Esse is an initiative by the WolvHaven staff to make members more aware of their actions and how it affects the community. What does "Honestus Esse" Mean? "Honestus Esse" means "to be honest" in Latin and we would like all people to express their honest opinions in this activity. What is it about? Similar to the craze over anonymous feedback tools such as sayat.me and sarahah a few months ago, we want to provide a way for all members of the community to provide anonymous feedback to each other. You can send feedback to anyone - even members of staff and SilverWolv himself (we don't bite or ban. really. so long as you follow the rules) Why was it setup? In the WolvHaven Demographic Census 2017, several of you…

New staff appointment model

New staff appointment model

News, Official, PSA, Staff
Hello! As you may know, WolvHaven has been selecting and appointing its members of staff through the use of elections since 2012. While the election system has been constantly changed and optimized in order to ensure that it works best in WolvHaven's interests, it has unfortunately reached its maximum potential. The election system has served us well - it ensured that everyone had a say in the people who they want to moderate and look after the server and enabled the council to have better insights to support decision making. (The results of the election are not always definite - any member of council may call for a vote to reject the outcome of the election) However, times change - and so must our staff appointment model. Therefore, we will be…
