- A process for putting up new moderators for both the lobby and the forums.
- A process for reporting an official complaint about an existing moderator including their suspension and investigation given evidence.
- A reliable up to date list of who has moderator and administrator status in the lobby and forums. User names and access level should suffice.
- A list of moderator actions across the forums and lobby. A simple "ABC muted at 99::99pm on x/y/2008" should suffice. IIRC these sorts of events should already be logged by TASServer, so there's no excuse for this as it can be fully automated with no need for any extra moderator effort, and could actually help moderators by providing a log, and serving as an example to the community.
We also need a definable process on what happens for someone to pass from being considered for moderator status to actually being granted this status. In the past this process has gone on behind the scenes and the community has been told after everything is all done and its too late, effectively making that person untouchable.
Imagine if the community revealed evidence proving that they were malicious in intent after they've been given the keys to the pearly gates and the chance to run amok...
This would also allow a nice and easy way of dealing with the threads that pop-up every few days about someone getting unfairly banned. Serious threads would be structured and much more productive rather than devolving into slanging matches, and obvious unfair attacks against moderators can be quickly dismissed.
