Discussion on site moderators
Lets discuss the pros and cons of site moderators. Until the time that new site "ownership" is determined, a moderator or group of moderators could help with some of the "mechanics" of site administration, among other things. This could free up current admin from some of the nuts and bolts stuff he has passionately been taking upon himself to date. I believe his effectiveness to do some of these things has been compromised by recent comments and misunderstandings. - not by his lack of ability, nor any decision he has made (or not made). but by how these events to date may be perceived.
As it stands now, if admin were to view a flagged post, for what ever reason it may be flagged, his ability to make a decision AND take some action on how to address the flagged post is compromised by a possible "conflict of interest"- whether real or only perceived.
I feel it is perception, but either way it exists.
Perhaps a moderator or group of moderators would be appropriate. There are both benefits and drawbacks to moderation.
What are all site members thoughts on this possibility?
