Requesting /c/birding

Current mod is a 7 month old account that’s never posted anywhere. I’m the only one who’s posted in the community so far.

@nutomic@lemmy.ml I also just transferred the community to them, not just mod, since the other person is MIA.

Does that make any real difference?

Yeah because the top mod can boot other mods, and its not a good idea to leave an absent person in the top mod spot.

Then the active mod can boot the inactive ones for safety.

we need a mechanism to allow lower mods to coup a top mod

Unfortunately lower mods could just appoint a bunch of alts and vote out whoever they want. But ya democratic moderation is really difficult online where people can just make up identities and I have no idea how it could function correctly.

It might work if there is a delay of some days before the takeover takes effect. Plus new mods might not be allowed to vote for their first days or weeks.

I think that needs to be added to the docs.
