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.

Granted but my vision for it was that it would require a percentage of the subverse population to do so. If someone joins just to vote me out that vote will only count towards a small section of it. And if they bring in a bunch of people or new accounts to brigade it still makes it harder if it is only a percentage (rather than a certain ccp or some other requirement).

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.
