I didnt see anyone discussing this in the back catalog, and with the recent post about trolls, I figured it would be nice to have a seperate line of discussion about Cake and your personal views on moderation. I feel this discussion is imporntant to have because i have seen good moderation grow communities into close knit friendly places, or watched a few bad decisions destroy 10K+ member servers.
So what is Cake's methodology on moderation? Are you going to be a gentle touch, or will you use the ban hammer more frequently? What kind of tools are in development for the moderation team? Are you planning to have community members become moderators, or only leave moderation to the Cake team?
What kind of sites / moderation styles have you studied during the creation of Cake?
I also saw in the trolls posts that you plan to agressivily weed out trolls, what would that entail?
Also, for any non Cake team members, please use this space to share stories of online moderation, both times when mistakes were made and times when they made the right decision from moment 1.
Have a wonderful day everyone!
