Gaming the system is a problem in every internet community. I think that mods should try to maintain the discussions and posts on-topic, admins shouldn't get involved unless there are no mods around. Maybe we should make w/Etiquette a Raddle Policy in the wiki, and should be updated to keep Raddle's purpose. It shouldn't be double standards so everyone including admins and mods should be under the same conditions.

I said long ago that we should try to have a reasonable number of forums and create new ones as Raddle grows and more people are willing to moderate them. We shouldn't have to wait for an admin to clean Spam and it shouldn't rely in one person to moderate the site and its forums.

Edit: u/bloodrose I mean that was my suggestion. I don't know what will be the best approach but it's what comes to my mind to address this kind of issues. Maybe others can suggest something better.

We recently changed it so only whitelisted users can create forums and edit the wiki, so there are limits in place now.

kinda what /f/mediation is about it just doesn't work when a whole forum is targeted.

Maybe we shouldn't just encourage people to resolve their personal issues there but make it a policy. Like "go and solve your issues there, the off-topic posts/comments will be deleted. Period." If they don't do it then actions should be require. Don't know if I explain my self. ^_^'

makes sense to me. I missed the latest spam freakout but I like raddle's mediation forum idk if it would work with unwilling participants

I don't think mediation ever worked. It just forces us to waste energy engaging with abusive people. I think emma has the best advice - just silently remove trolls without explanation and not feed them. The moment you lower yourself to negotiating with a troll, you've already lost.
