Sure, but I'll bite that bullet over having the same group of power mods as reddit, wouldn't you?

The limit on the number of subverses you're allowed to moderate is to help with that

Yeah but the system is childishly easy to break. You have a freind handle a few subverses on your decisions, have a few friends handle subverses on your decisions. Set up some alts and even go as far as to cloud the IP with each one to muddy the water if you are investigated. Sell your sub's agenda out to the highest dollar and do it without breaking a single rule.

The maximum subverse system is like a child safety cap, it makes sense and it can stop a basic attempt to gain entry. But all it takes is the smallest of know how or the right tool and it's like it isn't even there. Systems designed to be lightweight are great until you need them to be strong as well.

So now it's the same group of power users instead. So instead of having potential for moderators that actually... mod, you're left with internet politicians.

Would that keep mods from deleting non-spam posts? I'll take it. Forgive me for not giving much of a shit for mod fee fees after coming from a once great site that was basically destroyed by mods.

Clearly you have an agenda and haven't even read the suggestion fully.

Nope. I would much rather disagree with the leadership than have leaders who are unwilling to make decisions because they might get removed for it.

I will note the admins themselves have a fair amount of power when it comes to controlling power mods through subverse promotion and front page subs.

The problem with Reddit is that the head admins actually like the idea of a handful of moderators controlling most of the major subs and promote those subs through the front page.

I'd say the problem was that they got involved in that level of control at all. Ideally I'd prefer to see the admins almost completely hands off. If they have to be stepping in all the time then it's an admission that the system doesn't work.
