We should keep our moderation system as it is for now, except maybe a more democratic process should be available for larger subverses. A lot of subs would be totally inactive if it wasn't for dedicated moderators growing their communities.

Voting would allow SRS to gentrify a sub and replace it's mods. It's a terrible idea.

Not if voting was restricted to sub users who have both age in the sub and high CCP.

As the mod of a small sub, I agree. My posts are 90% of what is actually posted.

But if it ever got big and I went rogue I like the idea that the community could vote me out of position. I would think it should be based on the number of people to keep from getting fake votes. Like 51% of the community has to vote you out or something. If someone creates an account just to vote in that poll then (technically) the number of required votes goes up.

The trouble isn't getting voted out by the community, it's getting voted out by a brigade. Whatever you set the threshold to for genuine participation, they'll just circlejerk each other until they meet it then vote.

The problem with such premises is that in almost every community i went to i see thousands of people subbed but only a handful actually participating. Id be surprised if there is a subverse where even 10% of subs participate at least once a week. so requiring 51% means that it is basically impossible.

So like a poll? Active members? are allowed to vote on what happens, it should show up on the sidebar, allowing each user to see it, and see where each user stands (Just might want to make a rule to say you can't punish people/reward/take action for people who vote on a certain one, it might also help reduce fake/spam votes)

EDIT: Maybe this just for the defaults, they still could have a few mods to create polls, and edit CSS, but less of a moderator and more of the organizer) while the normal, smaller subverses could have a normal moderation system (in the case of a community, like funhaus)

Poll won't work. It'll work until someone abused the system by brigading.

Something like that, that have to be a lot of tweaking and balancing with CCP quotas and user activity, but for a sub with a large base it doesn't make sense to be using our medieval moderation system.
