I think there should be checks and balances so that users can hold mods accountable for what users may see as wrongdoing or bias, but I don't know what that system should be. What I worry about is a witch hunt, like what is currently happening. There shouldn't just be a vote to decide whether a mod stays, but there needs to be some form of potential punishment to let them know that they will be held accountable for their actions as mods, just like users are held accountable.

There almost needs to be something like the Arbitration Committee on Wikipedia. A group of high-up and most trusted users who decide matters as a neutral party when all else fails.

I second modcourt. You going to make it w00zi? I would but I'm not as active as you are. I'd like to be a part of it though if you do.

Yeah, or something like a trouble ticket system that has the power to get an admin involved in a moderation issue, but obviously that idea by itself is too simple and likely not foolproof.

Have you ever heard of Occam's razor? It's a theorem that states that the simplest idea is always the best when compared to others that offer the same benefits.

I actually think your idea is pretty good. We could have a v/adminintervention and someone with higher powers could take a look at it once a day and see if the top X posts from that day require intervention.

The term "witch hunt" loses its meaning when the witches actually exist.

Witch hunts in virtual spaces aren't necessarily a bad thing. Witch hunts are one way that communities protect themselves against likely or perceived threats. In the real world, witch hunts are very different. However, we already have rules against doxxing, so users that dox would be removed.

In my opinion, witch hunts just breed hysteria and a mob mentality among users in a community; it's more important for level-heads to prevail.
