Honestly, not being able to "message the moderators" is a bit silly. :)


Edit: A close second is being able to undelete deleted submissions. Sometimes you just make a mistake.

Not being able to message all the mods sucks. What happens if you PM a mod that is inactive, so your message gets ignored

I just ... message all the mods? It's a little clunky, but doesn't take much time, especially since most subs only have one moderator.

Thanks for all your hard work Atko and thanks for asking us what we need!

For me, it would be helpful to get a notification if a link or discussion is posted in a subverse I mod. Further have the ability to turn that notification on / off per moderator, per subverse. Perhaps in the inbox have a 4th column "Verses I mod" or something. That way a busy subverse will not drown out the username mentions, comment / post replies.

This feature would let me log in quick and check things out when I am rushed and let me catch posts in 'verses not posted in that often that I may see late otherwise. That helps me to promote good content and discourage spam or content that is contrary to subverse rules etc..

Thanks for reading.

Thank you for speaking out :) I guess we could have a separate inbox just for moderators. We are due for a major inbox overhaul so this will definitely be something I will keep in mind.

I second this!

I hate trying to check around my subs and figuring out what's new, but this would be absoltly king!

In the interim you could create a set that includes the subverses you moderate, and check the set periodically, I suppose.

Good idea. That is actually what I do now!

Hopefully Voat won't make the mistake of allowing others to assign flair to the userbase. It's used to troll on Reddit, and one of the reasons I've been looking for an alternative. I want to be able to use a site where moderators aren't allowed to troll the userbase using mod features given to them.

A site with a comment system like this puts the emphasis on the commenters, not the mods, subsites, creators of those subsites.

I can go to Facebook for subsites where the focus is on the subsite and the moderators of the subsite. As is happening with Reddit, this makes subsites that aren't friendly to free and open discussion. That creates echo chambers, I don't enjoy reading nothing but people circlejerking with each other.

Flair assigning really just depends on the subreddit. In places like /r/SteamGameSwap, it's incredibly useful. I would be disappointed if mods didn't have the ability to assign flair, personally. I think a good middle ground would be to handle it like Reddit does, where you can allow users to set their own flair, or the mods can assign it, but to always give the user the ability to disable displaying flair. That would leave it for whatever users want in appropriate subs, mods to assign it in trade subs(plugging /v/digitalgameswap), and users would be able to prevent mod harassment by disabling it.

You can already assign the users flair.

I did it on /v/meat

I'd like to see a group PM system for moderators, or even just for everybody. It would make it a lot easier to coordinate things.

Yep, modmail is a must on big subs.

I did this by starting an invite only sub. The other mods and I can leave messages for each other by subject, using discussion posts. It also provides an transparent layer for the users, as any user can view the sub but can't post anything. Also, as a bonus, all CSS can be tested on the mods sub. If we need privacy just PM, although having to PM was the hole reason I did this.

Good for what I needed to achieve, as I was being suspend from commenting because I was using up my quoter PM'ing the other mods with ideas.

Its not perfect but it does cover a few bases.

peace...

Edit: ninja styles.

Not a mod but I might someday be one...

I would like to have the ability to Lock a Thread, without deleting it.

Enable a function for moderators to leave a message that is stickied and highlighted to the top of the thread and then lock the thread. This allows for a much more transparent option than thread deletion and allows for Mods to clarify the reasons of their actions, in context.

I feel if we give mods more lenient ways of dealing with rule violations we will have less of a problem with over-moderation. (one of the main reason Reddit is shit)

I'm torn between two. I think we need modular permissions for moderators, like subreddits have. I also think we need public moderation logs. Some basic controls would be needed. Obviously if a post is being deleted for personal info, we should be able to remove that from view, but if those manhood101 spammers get a new URL, being able to remove the post, [REDACT] the URLs, while still keeping it visible so that others can see what was removed, it would go a long ways towards transparency, and by extension, keeping moderators from doing shady shit.

Reddit's versus Voat's. Not what I would consider modular(And definitely not clearly defined).

But I didn't know about the public modlog. Definitely good to know, thanks!

I hear you. For now, please use hello@voat.co or abuse@voat.co as a temporary measure.
