Wanna brainstorm some what-ifs?
Federated Moderation: What if Moderation was an #activitypub extension and moderation actions would federate to ease the life of mods + admins?
Delegated Moderation: What if moderators weren't bound to instances, and could just jump in on another instance to help do the work?
Moderation-as-a-Service: What if mods provided their services via federated @activitypub models, gained trust and reputation based on your feedback?
Moderation is too much out of sight of fedizens, unthankful work. But it is vital for fedi to not turn into a toxic hellhole. It is fedi's USP.
By making it part of fedi (as vocab extension, not core standard) it gets the appreciation + visibility it deserves. Makes it easier to find mods / offer incentives to help.
Manual decisions / onboarding remain unchanged. Mods need to follow CoC's always.
No "upper class", implicit -> explicit.
QOTO: Question Others to Teach Ourselves. A STEM-oriented instance.
An inclusive free speech instance.
All cultures and opinions welcome.
Explicit hate speech and harassment strictly forbidden.
We federate with all servers: we don't block any servers.
