Hello there
I recently had an idea, called the forums watch. Forums mods can't be on the forum 24/7, but if the team was expanded, they could catch way more things like inappropriate moods, or spamming post. Those of you who play OldCP, probably had some idea as to what this would be. Kind of like OldCP's Penguin Watch, but for forums. They would have all the powers mods have, but no nametag, that way, inappropriate mail could be prevented, and spamming and inappropriate moods could be caught early. Having too many mods for forums would kind of be a bit extra, and have more cause for reforms. Forums Watch would be handpicked that way there would be no applications, and you wouldnt be allowed to leak yourself. I'm not sure if this would work, but it would be interesting to try.

With all these ranks on the forums i'd say forums mod is enough

There is a reasonable amount of moderators currently for the forums and they all do their job, no need for this but it's a good idea

I have to agree with Lush here, all of the forum mods do their job very well and this would just create an unnecessary rank.

Maybe a feature where a certain amount of people report a topic or post and when the reports reach the threshold the topic automatically gets hidden for moderator review. Just an idea

Good idea, but I must agree with Swirlie and Lush. However, this could be also a way to choose new mods.
