I used the extension regularly when I was on Reddit, as a mod it was a godsend for figuring out whether a user or subreddit was posting a lot of transphobic material. It works great on Tumblr and Twitter, but doesn't seem to have any functionality on Reddit thanks to not having been updated in 8 months. Any good alternative for Lemmy?
We're launching c/CommunityRequests to combat a growing issue on Lemmy.ca in general, which is unmoderated communities. What this will do is allow you to apply to take over an unmoderated community by posting in c/CommunityRequests a request to take the community over. Ultimately we decided to steal the system used on Reddit, but with some modifications to make it a bit more fair to users submitting requests.
Our initial guidelines are as follows:
- A community will be considered unmoderated if the moderators have not interacted with the community for over a month.
- Users may request communities where no moderators are interacting with the community.
- Moderators within the community may ask to have the top mod replaced if the top mod is inactive, but other moderators are still active.
- In both cases, moderators have 5 days to appeal the request. If no appeal is received within the time-frame, the request will be granted by the Admin Team to the requestor.
- Requests made in bad faith will be rejected. For example, requesting a community you have been permanently banned from for justified reasons, or requesting a community in order to completely change the purpose of it for the worse.
These guidelines may be adjusted a bit as time goes on. This is a new system and we're going to need to try things for a bit to see if they work or not.
In any event, feel free to start using the community immediately. Please give us feedback on your thoughts and ideas!

The primary moderator of this community is inactive, leaving the community in an unmoderated state for over a month.
As a result, we are soliciting applications for new moderator volunteers. Based on the number of reports we see, the workload is fairly light and shouldn't take more than 5-10 minutes per day.
Applicants must be regular posters or commenters in the community, have an account at least one month old, and be in good standing in the community (i.e. no bans).
For those interested, please nominate yourself by posting a comment below about why you would like to be a moderator for the community. If you support or oppose the user in question, please add a child comment with a +1 or a -1 and the reason why you do/do not support them as a community moderator. We'll pick from the top-ranked users in the comments after about 48 hours.
Regards, SourCreamAndGarlic on behalf of the Lemmy.ca Admin Team
