And who's gonna manage the CSS? We can't just let any random cupcakes walk in and remove everyone's internet points. :o)

Not the mods on SBBH. All that happens then is power tripping and lsd.

Personally, I block all the special snowflake css, and view the naked voat pages. The CSS thing just starts to remind me of everyone's gaudy myspace pages.

Downvoats will remove spam and illegal content

And when people peddling that content make accounts specifically to upvoat them?

When comment sections get filled with spam on normal posts?

Those are just the two obvious issues.

I think it does. Mods are great for removing spam, categorizing and organizing the content, and engaging the community.

Says the mod.

I do agree that they should be here for spam and illegal stuff. I don't know what the fuck he means by

categorizing and organizing the content, and engaging the community

That appears to be something new that was just introduced. @reow this bit isn't in the Constitution - where is it coming from?

Says the mod.

Says the user. They aren't posting as a mod. They are posting as a user of a forum they moderate. Isn't that like one of your things you push on PV? That mods should be users and not draw attention to themselves unless needed?

I do agree that they should be here for spam and illegal stuff. I don't know what the fuck he means by

They aren't talking about Askvoat specifically. Did you have your coffee today?

@Calorie-Kin so I don't have to put another reply. /v/fatpeoplehate also categorizes content as well. The mods(including myself) make the content specifically about fat people and hatred towards them.

Yes, says the mod. Moderators know their purpose, who would've thought.

Before you get your screencaps ready and start bitching on PV, I'll set the record straight. Question was "Does Voat need subverse moderators?", not "Does AskVoat need moderators?". I just replied on what I think mods should be doing. Certain moderators of certain subs (think @HomerSimpson on /v/FatPeopleHate) engage the community by making a weekly stickied offtopic post.This is something users can't do themselves, as everyone will sticky their own submission. Other subs (like /v/news) have moderators that help categorize the content. In the case of /v/news, this is to distinguish opinion articles credible sources.

Hope that clears it up. Put down the pitchfork and stop whining.

Depends entirely on the subverse. /v/whatever runs just fine. FPH probably wouldn't.

Voats should be the only form of moderation.

That is a quick way to watch the site die.

You will need moderators for spam control, as well as keeping the illegal content down. Machines are only so good at doing things.

No, SBBH would be much better off without their mods, so far with their mods they have allegedly banned 420 users and spent at least 3 days on an FBI watch list!

We need better mod controls so every user can mod themselves.
