Hopefully the new mods will continue to be on board with “News from around the world” side bar mandate as opposed to imposing their vocal minority view of “news impacting the world”. There’d be way too much negativity otherwise, and way too hard keep my sanity in check.

I’m a known moderator of a news comm

You'd have to have an account here.

Done, thx! Try to use temp bans of < a month, rather than permabans, where appropriate.

Why the need for a local account? I find it a little ironic, given the fact you've created a software that allows the opposite.

In case there are any issues with federation or reports federating.

Sure, I'm in. I've noticed that irrelevant content has been posted and not removed, so that explains it.

Edit: never mind, this account is on lemmy.world. And lemmy.ml requires approval for new accounts, so it may be worth lifting that requirement.

So random people can be mods? That's bananas!

[-] krolden@lemmy.ml 1 points 4 months ago

I'm here if you need me

[-] zephyreks@lemmy.ml -1 points 5 months ago

Wondering if y'all are still looking for mods?

I posted in another comment my history of activity here (on my programming.dev account)
