I like that the admins pose janitor positions to the community, but I agree that there need to be hard limits. Voat is a small community with frequent content submitters to each system sub. Moderators should be from the pool of the frequent content submitters for these subs. This step by the admins was a step in the right direction because there is some community input on who is going to mod. There needs to be a lot more; something like a process to nominate active users from each system sub for the roles, where active voaters comment with their approval or disapproval for each candidate? There is no need for any one user to moderate more than one system sub in any capacity, and were this the case, the additional 5 Janitors would not be an issue. The moderators who do mod more than one sys sub have done a great job, and this is not an admonition of their hard work.

The users aren't going to get input though just the current mods.

It's an open invite for users to apply, and the rest of voat can comment on those requests. It's not ideal, but it's a start. I didn't know that only current mod input matters; it's something that can change over time if users want it, right?
