Jury results

I've been on many juries. Was wondering about the jury results. How many jurists are there? What does it take for a post to be hidden? (majority, more than one vote or unanimous?) How does "not quite" options figure in the results? Are the results published anywhere? (would be interesting to see how my votes compared to the other votes)

2. Thanks!!

I would not have clicked on about. I clicked about every other option though. I've learned from other sites the about page is virtually useless and a generic page.

3. About's community moderating system looks pretty dated, so I'll offer this:

A lot changed in mid 2016 ...

>>How many jurists are there?
7

>>What does it take for a post to be hidden?
A majority (4 or more)

>>How does "not quite" options figure in the results?
I don't know. I don't think it affects the vote on the hide ("not quite" is still a no, and "close but breaks" is still a yes), but admins might consider the strength of the no's and yes's. (A current MIRT member tells me that MIRT doesn't see jury results, only admins).

>>Are the results published anywhere? (would be interesting to see how my votes compared to the other votes)
No.

On Removed Posts (the term "Hidden" is outdated -- The admins and probably MIRT are able to access the old posts, but regular DU members can't (In the old pre-2016 days, anyone could click on a "unhide" link to view a hidden post). The Removed Posts still exist -- I've had a post or two restored after getting a "Post Removed", so they're still stored somewhere and someone(s) have the ability to restore them. Additionally, the person whose post was removed also can see that post )

As for where I got this ... I would have to spend a lot of time hunting for links, but anyway I'm sure it is all in the Announcements forum, in the 2016 time frame.

Here's one: https://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1013&pid=6548

The decision to go to 7 jurors (was 6 previously) was in 2014:

5. Neither MIRT nor hosts can see jury results, only admins.

6. Thanks much. I fixed it... please let me know of anything else

All's I see on MIRT functions is the somewhat outdated https://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=modsystem
(last updated in 2013) but I don't know what is outdated or not, other than for example the Transparency Page thing is no more.

A source of up-to-date but brief information is the periodic call for new MIR Team members such as
"We are now accepting new volunteers to serve on the MIR Team from November 2019 - February 2020"

4. One change...

... in the past, we were notified about a jury result. I found that useful. I liked knowing if I was "off" when compared with other jurists. In the past, I think we could also leave a sentence explaining a vote. That was good when you knew there were two ways of looking at a post and wanted to identify the particular reason for your vote.

8. Yes..

... that was good. There are some posts where you don't know... you have to expand more and try to figure out what happened. A guide was nice.
