I feel like we as a community could benefit a lot from having Forum Mods. A lot of the staff members don’t spend much time on the forums, and I feel like active and mature forum members should be able to apply to become forum mods.
Now, this would be a forums only role, no in-game stuff. I feel like they should have to have the regular role to apply. (Suggested by @ariannasv22!) After a forum mod successfully applies and is accepted, they would be able to re-categorize topics, close topics, and delete posts. (Feel free to suggest more if you wish!) I don’t feel like they should be able to suspend users, but if anyone disagrees feel free to reply.
The forums would basically have 24/7 moderation, from active and mature players. Duplicate suggestions, necro-posting, and inappropriate posts would no longer be something admins have to worry about. I just feel like the forums would be even tidier than they currently are.
