On of the biggest problems is having super mods that are in charge of 50+ subs. I understand that getting people to mod subs with large user number for free is not something you look in the mouth to hard. Still there needs to be a bit of restraint and if there was a better way of making formal group complaints against abusive super mods I think the shift over to other sites would be not have the power behind it that it does over these last few years. This alternative is working well it seems due to the ease of transition, unlike the great Hubski migration a few years back.

This is a huge fucking problem that needs to be addressed. There's nothing stopping a new cabal to exist. There needs to be a limit to how many subs people can mod. Or a challenging system so people can't just get away with shit.

I would suggest that there should be a 2-factor cap put in place.

Something like: MAX = 15 subreddits OR 500,000 subscriptions total.

Whichever is lower.

I feel like the public moderation logs they're working on will make a huge dent in cabal ability

I never understood the reason as to why someone would want to mod that many subs, especially the ones with 10k+ subscribers. The way I see it is if you're a mod, you need to contribute and monitor the subs. Y'know, do your job instead of popping in only when it's only convenient for you (such as being mentioned).

Having that many to mod would be impossible on any given day. Most just like having their username listed in the mods list to make themselves seem important and known to other users, like a power trip. It's funny when you think about it.

I popped in on Reddit once when a discussion about this was going on. A mod of the sub I was in was over a ton of others, and users were asking why and how they keep up with everything. The reply that it all boiled down to was: I have modding experience.

Well, I heard that.
