I would also like to personally thank Bsh; he is probably the most adult and mature person I have ever met on the internet. Ever.
I second that

I third this. Bsh has been a great head mod and a great person to work with.

One thing I'd think would be helpful is for the voters to to explain why they're reporting the vote and why they feel like it is against the COC
I will start doing that as a comment inside debates. Should anyone be tagged in said comment? I think a lot of the time I'll be tagging the person who cast a bad vote, explaining what I believe fell short, and thus why I believe moderators will inevitably delete it.

That would be fantastic. Please tag me and Ramshutu in addition to reporting the vote.

Will do.

Related question, what does the moderator interface look like? Specifically, how do reported things show up to you, like is it a notification, a sub-listing you have to go look at, etc.

For security reasons, I do not feel comfortable answering this question.

How did you get selected to be Moderators?
And how do you get banned really quickly?

(1) Bsh1 and myself were appointed head moderator and deputy moderator respectively when the site first opened. From time to time bsh1 and myself discuss whether or not we should add another member to our team and who we are looking for. For example, when we appointed Ramshutu as our voting moderator, we appointed him because he was an active voter who constantly gave quality RFDs compared to the other voters. I am not sure if we will be appointing a new moderator any time soon.

(2) If you want to get banned really quickly, PM me to delete your account. 
--> @Speedrace
You lack the street cred to pass the screening of other mods. You're also affiliated with me as an ally, they dont dig that much.
--> @Gatorade
I was recommended to Virt and Bsh by mutual NWO / Illuminati friends

Joking aside: the reality it was I was a regular voter who is on most of the time 


--> @RationalMadman
xD but they like me (:

I 100% guarantee you that my name has come up at least once if they were every discussing this, but if I was rejected per se it's probably either because of my age or because I was a little inactive this summer

--> @Gatorade
And how do you get banned really quickly?
There are some insta-ban worthy actions, including doxxing and posting links to pornographic websites.

--> @Virtuoso, @bsh1
Can you ask for a thread to be locked?
--> @Dr.Franklin
Can you ask for a thread to be locked?
Yes, you can. Bsh1 will be the best person to contact if you want a thread locked. 

--> @Dr.Franklin
Yes, but it is harder for us to lock a thread on request, because they serve as communicative platforms.
--> @Virtuoso, @bsh1
Thanks for the feedback
--> @bsh1
I love how we answered that at the same exact time. 

--> @Speedrace
Holy smokes, you're that smart
--> @Speedrace
Wow you really seem to want this.

I cannot relate to that.
--> @Dr.Franklin
Thanks lol
--> @Castin
Not like THAT lol I'm not gonna be mad if they say no, but I'd be very happy if they did invite me :)
