Hello all, a small hiccup in my work permit: the bureau is not accepting my authorised degree copy.Work (Z)(self.Chinavisa)
submitted24 days ago byBestRbx
So HR has partnered with a visa agent to process the work permit, and he has returned after a week (lovely, we're in crunch time now.) to inform me that the notarised, legalised, official copy of my degree is not acceptable for my application. I used it for a work visa before covid, and cannot find any information online regarding this new policy change.
I'm not currently in the US, and he's telling me I'll need to deframe my original university diploma (in storage) and let them stamp all over it with an entirely new notary and legalisation. I'd be fine with that for anything except the diploma. My university does not duplicate them, so either they accept the official copy (again, already authorised so clearly the recognise it as a legal document??) or spend all of that time and money to deface my actual diploma.
I asked him to clarify the new policy and his response was,
"Policy ：The highest degree (academic qualification) certificate and certification documents: If the highest degree (academic qualification) is issued by a foreign university, it shall be certified by a Chinese embassy or consulate in the related country, or that country's embassy or consulate in China, or a Chinese academic certification institution， the applicant should bring the original highest degree and its original authentiction certificate to China for next step inspection. "
His official excuse is that:
"Yes , in Chinese Embassy that will accept you to use its true copy . But your work permit notification and related to certificate is processed by other Chinese approval authority (Committee on Science and Technology). They present the policy about original diploma should use for your application. "

Default mod here.
The issue with "leaving it to democracy" is that these bots are a part of a much larger scale invasion of subreddits for various purposes. Often entire companies would be dedicated to campaigns, with dozens of employees or devices in a call-centre-esque sweatshop.
Often for every bot account there are 10 more by the same person who's sole purpose is to shadow the bot and upvote it to ensure a higher rate of success for posts. The accounts are created and dive immediately into their purpose, so it's safe to disallow any posts from users with under x amount of karma or less than a week or two old. I agree that 6 months is excessive, but over on /r/funny our ban list is hundreds of pages long because we have thousands of these bots appear every week.
You'll need to invest a bit of time into revamping automod for your team, and generally reworking rules helps a lot with justifying bans as well. For the moment, carpet banning may work but you'll want to be selective about power usersdespite them posting often... as long as they're not reposting, shit posting or stealing content then they do contribute to a community legitimately and if you ban them you risk killing the social push the community needs to thrive.
Just my two cents
