Suggestion: Self-Policing Vanilla Add-on
I'm anticipating the task of moderating a forum on my website, and I remembered that when ebay started out, the inventor was besieged with feedback until he realized self-policing feedback, posted properly could handle most of the situations. Can we explore the idea of building an interface to allow users of the forum to possibly "elect" a team of folks they trust (users who contribute to the forum) who would be the "forum police". It seems to me that an errant user, properly warned, and then sanctioned by the duly-elected forum police would have little to grumble about. It seems to me this would take a huge burden off the shoulders of anyone who installs forum software in order to benefit from the community offered by a forum. I appreciate your thoughts and coding. :)
