Democratic moderation per instance would be ideal, for example a perpetual poll concerning where to direct certain moderation actions.
The report system is inefficient and slow, and I think such a system would lower the bar for users voicing their opinions and it'd ease the responsibility on mods.
A very similar tool (at least in spirit) is the shinigami eyes browser extension that mark thing as trans positive or anti-trans.
a few thoughts
@anarchiv I agree, such tools would be mainly useful for small instances.
Specifically about the hypothetical poll:
So it's rather a voting/ticketing hybrid system than a poll I suppose. So say over half of the instance has voted to block a certain instance, and a mod takes action, that ticket is then scrubbed from the voting list. This was just an off-the-cuff example though.
A highly trusted mod-team is kinda what I don't want. It's not inherently transparent and it's really a great deal of effort; an effort that could be decentralised.
Tootsite is a general and moderated instance with a focus on your safety. We're running glitch-soc!
