[SUGGESTION] Mentioning Mods

I’ve been thinking on this for a while, so, as everyone knows, mods take care of inappropriate content on sololearn. Hats off to you guys. But, it’s no always so easy to get their attention. The stay safe post helps, but even then there are often times without mods. Also, discord, not everyone has that. One of them being me. So, what if you could simply type @mod to mention any moderator that’s currently active? Or, if none are, send a notification to each mod until the issue is taken care of. What do you think? Could this work?

I doubt pinging mods would solve the "often times without mods" issue. If we are not here, pinging or not is useless either way. At the current point, your best bet is to post under the stay-safe thread, which is similar to pinging since that's where we often check in. Or, you can ping that one mod whom you are familiar with in the stay-safe thread. Pinging us all at once would be efficient at solving that one and only one problem, but it would slow us down at handling other nine problems which originally, could be processed simultaneously. It's not a huge margin, but just food for thought. You can still provide this feedback/suggestion to SL - They've been welcoming of suggestions...

I had this suggestion a while back in our Discord server. After thinking about it, I think it'd be better for SL to implement a "helper" role/badge. If mods believe a user is good at finding rule-breakers, the mods could assign them a helper role, and perhaps unlock a badge for it. Only "helpers" would have the ability to ping mods. That's my suggestion, anyway.

KrOW We don't want to encourage negative activity. Even with penalties, some users would be motivated to acquire those badges.

Mods aren't paid, as far as I know. What is so urgent, ever, that you need a mod at any moment. It looks as if you want them to be standby.

KrOW Instead of a badge, I think you are trying to portray some kind of handicap to misbehaving users (a mute, a challenge handicap, a bar from posting threads, etc), which I totally agree with. Just the "badge" part requires some alternate term for it to not sound so... acheivement-ish. Perhaps, SoloLearn can come up with a "reputation system" similar to those found in myBB forums, wherein designated users can rate other users either positively or negatively, which would be reflected in their profile. However, this is beyond the scope of this thread.

KrOW sololearn is gradually increase and decreasing the positiveness because of unknown members, spammers,etc so SL needs only positive impact on this community so that's why some facilities are not given but good idea

I have another suggestion... Why badges must be only "positive"? Think about negative badge... At example a probable spammer badget gived to users that make some spam ... At first, it get some xp from user and revoke some authorization (post comment, ask question etc) while user dont make a specific penality dictated by badge rule (at example get 10 upvote to least 5 answer)... This is an example but i hope that i have get idea

CipherFox I understand that can seem an encouragment but its not... Its a warn before mods get in action (important its that this type of badge add restrictions and that they can be removed by mking some goals)... Oblivious these must be used for not serious wrong behaviours

Hatsy Rei This is like i think its good... Users cant vote for another user reputation else we repeat same problem of "easy" down-vote only for fun/contrast.. Users can only report to mods, then its necessary a way for easy and fast reporting (an thread like "Stay safe together" though its useful, its not the solution)... Oblvious who make too "fake" reports can be "punished" at mods discretion. Reputation can be increased and decreased from multiple mods only (least 3 at example).... Though badges can be viewed like encouragments, they can get user attention on what its good and what its bad and make more clear that any bad action has some punishment (while to ban)
