In light of the #MeetTheLadies issue, @cark made this point;
…I get the sense that one of the issues of social media in general and something that handcuffs Byte is moderation, right? Like, it’s difficult to have DMs on here because there’s no force to police that bad actors. (side note: my Utopian vision for Byte is no DMs ever and use those resources elsewhere, but that’s another point)
I think Reddit, like all platforms, has issues with bad-faith use but one of the tools they do to counteract that is through heavy reliance on community moderation. A problem with this method is that these jobs are voluntary and so often the jobs chores and can be arduous, especially for larger subreddits which can cause a lag between the demand of moderation and the amount of work that can be done - possibly monetization can be done to circumvent that?
Honestly, I have no clue what the shape of this idea would be, but I think there could be some use if we use community members as an outlet for doing maintenance to the community.
