Severe Lack of Moderation
Zavexeon (624)

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.

Hey guys, sorry about the lack of communication on this from our side. We've grown a lot in the past 2 months -- more than doubled our monthly active users -- and it's been a struggle on all angles.

I'll make sure this gets more love. In the mean time would love some help in the moderation. @Zavexeon I'll make you a moderator. Who else wants to help?

@amasad I'd happily help moderate replit. It'll certainly take a bit more than just me though.

And thank you for addressing the situation. I'm not trying to sound rash but it's just something that has personally been bothering me, and I'm sure others, for some time.

@amasad Recommendation I'd make is maybe limited perms for helpers on the discord server. I don't think that any helper on the discord server would abuse this power, and typically one of us sees it first, and reports it.

@AllAwesome497 yes it'd be good to also do it automatically based on certain karma thresholds

@amasad yeah that could also work. I'd say 250 would be a good amount, bc u can get a lot of karma from a good comment or a likable post.

@amasad Id happily moderate this site, although I apologize for the late response. I regularly visit the feed, and am tired of seeing spam, or people that abuse the comments.

@amasad I would be happy if I get a chance too.
