I don't understand the connection.

There's a bunch of really fresh accounts spouting spam and nonsense, and that explains why the site is so slow at granting users mod powers on a sub?

Even with the rules in place, having to submit to the sub often enough, and waiting on putitout (maybe they have more ppl on it?) to grant access?

I get where you're coming from, I love our site admins, but this is the one thing that kinda bugs me. Let ppl grow/revive dead subs!

Edit: Maybe a rule like 'you must of subbed to the requested subverse for two months before asking?' Or just have been active on the site for two months?

As for power mods, idk how to keep them at bay

If they dont do a little investigation on subverse transfers they will open it up more easily to shills/etc thugh.

Right.

But they're pretty damn tough about it. I've seen complaints before, and I was rejected an old news sub that had been dead for a year.

Kinda annoying. I woulda tried to revitalize it. It was during that whole v/news u/she thing. I posted in the dead sub a few times, commented in long gone user's posts.

A month later, after I'd all but forgotten the request, putitout tells me no. To be fair, he explained I needed to post in there more, yada yada. By that time, other news subs had taken off and I didn't really bother to keep at it. Seemed... trivial. Especially when there's a huge chance it would never catch on.

Edit: wouldn't a rule change go a long way, like 'no modding a sub until youve been here two months.' Or howabout: 'no sub will be granted to a new moderator unless he's been subbed for 2 months.'

It just seems like there shoukd be more user input when considering who to give mod powers. For instance, in my case. The sub was longggg dead, voat was having a news sub problem, I had been a few months or more, I would've gladly answered a few questions and let system be a mod as well for a bit? Throwing some ideas out there.
