Is high-level, abstract information about individual moderator actions on C SE confidential? For example, a given moderator has taken moderator actions x times in the last week.
Mods do a lot of things, and it's not possible to quantify all of it, nor is it really all that meaningful to compare between mods.
- User moderation (warnings, suspensions)
- Handling flags
- Cleaning up the site, closing questions, deleting posts and comments
- Using the review queues (a moderation action everyone can do, but it still counts when the mods do it)
- Crafting the custom close reasons, editing the help pages
- Adding post notices, protecting questions, removing questions from the HNQ list
- Commenting on problematic posts
- Welcoming new people and making the site a generally welcoming place
- Processing flag synonyms
- Responding on Meta
- Encouraging the community to use Meta
- Identifying disputes within the community, weighing arguments, and putting forward arguments for policies (not unilaterally deciding policies)
- Liaising with mods on other sites
The mods are not all equally active, nor do we all do all of these things to the same extent. There should be no expectation that all mods do contribute in the same ways, or that they spend the same amount of time here. It's not even like one action is always the same - some flags take 5 seconds to process, others could take half an hour to investigate, decide a course of action, and then implement it. Some Meta posts take 3 minutes to write, others take an hour.
Some information is confidential, like user moderation actions. If someone is suspended we won't tell you why. Some of these actions you can observe yourself. Others you can't. Even when you can observe them you can't always know how much time or energy was put into it.
Finally, I see no reason to present a report on the other mods to the community. We're a team, and I don't think that would feel supportive to the other mods. At the moment I feel like we're adequate staffed for the amount of activity this site gets. If that's the case, then it doesn't really matter how we divide up the work. If anyone feels like moderation is taking too long, or if you think we're not spending enough time making decisions, then you can discuss it here, or raise the problems with SE staff.
