How do I add someone as a mod on a forum?
Standard procedure is to request it in meta and then the user gets added as moderator by an admin unless/until the community objects.
Mods cad demod themselves but I don't think that they can add mods - not sure.
Assuming you wanted to add u/ThreadBot to f/TestGround I've done that now.
Oh okay thanks, I didn't realize mods couldn't just add new mods to their own forum.
Yeah it's kinda weird now that I think about it. I'll add it to the feature w/wishlist.
And keep in mind starting a forum makes you mod automatically, in case somehow that's slipped your mind.
if you have the bot start f/itsgoingdown and then set it up that all the IGD stuff gets auto-posted there, that seems ideal?
Oh sure, I can do it that way.
I like that approach since it'll encourage people to subscribe to things they want to see and have the option not to have every IGD or whatever article in their feed.
If you have another way you prefer though then go for it! It's just the only one I've thought of.
Especially if you end up writing some kind of script that allows anybody to do this with an RSS feed, it seems wortwhile that each gets its own forum so people can be picky about what they see.
