This site accepts donations. It has received more than $50,000 so far. And continues to receive money. Why not use that money to pay for proper moderators? I don't think jart has much time to spend here since she is busy at her new job. Maybe someone else can make use of that donation money? What about Odin, Renney, gnomunny, or shadz66? I think these people are all retired and have a lot of time on their hands. Anyone of them would make a great moderator.
The new funding campaign. http://www.gofundme.com/8dpiyc is having a hard time because of that I think. People don't want to donate if they don't get something back. If we can promise a properly moderate site for OWS discussion, I have a feeling people would be more inclined to donate. We need a really strong and clear initiative if we want to get donations.
So, first we propose a new clear plan for moderation, with clear moderation goals, then we start an active campaign to receive donations for it.
