Severe Lack of Moderation

If it is not obvious, repl.it has a severe lack of moderation. The repl.it talk boards are full of trolls and spammers and that quite frankly hurts the reputation of this otherwise lovely site.

I'm sure that the repl.it team is quite aware of this issue, but I have not noticed a decrease in troll posts and general spam. In fact, levels actually seem to be increasing.

My suggestion is to employ more staff. I'm sure there are many trustworthy members on repl.it who would voluntarily moderate repl.it. That includes myself. Please, repl.it team, please increase moderation on repl.it talk.

This issue will not solve itself, and I am merely providing my opinion on a possible solution.

I try to moderate whenever I can (the shrek guy has been banned from repl talk), however I cannot always be here. I can ask some of the other mods about activity on here though, since I'm much more active than they are. Afaik, the repl.it team is working on an improved board system to help cut down on the spam here

@theangryepicbanana you could employ more moderators (like me)

@theangryepicbanana also there was more than one Shrek guy, did you ban all of them?

@PDanielY I cannot employ moderators (or if I can, idk how). also no I didn't ban all of them, but I will if need be

@theangryepicbanana I found one guy I found just by putting "Shrek" in the Repl talk search his name is shrekanddonkey. I found his only post and reported it, hopefully he can be removed. He doesn't seem like a spammer, but his repls look very spammy.
