    But if it got someone like jaylock banned.... might be worth it.

    We have a lot of reasonable moderators in this forums. I don't think a tribunal would not add any value. Especially when you see how bad it is going in LoL.

    I don't think a user-based tribunal is necessary.

    But what about a mod-based tribunal? Meaning, it takes 3 mods to authorize a poster's infraction. It would be easy to implement: someone reports a post, and if 2 out of the first 3 mods to review it vote for infraction, then the infraction passes. It would somewhat balance out moderator bias.

    Just brainstorming here, don't crucify me.

    Three mods required for every spam bot? Would be a pain, especially in low-pop forums.

    Hmm didn't think about spambots, those would still need an immediate ban.

    Maybe the mod reviewing a report could identify "gray area" posts (where it is not 100% obvious that the user deserves an infraction) and put them up for vote among other mods.

    And users can still appeal any infraction they get, which is voted on by everybody.

    If you see something against the rules, report it.

    If you want to be more involved to help the forum in a greater capacity, apply to be a mod.

    If you're unhappy with an infraction, get other mods to evaluate the fairness of the infraction by appealing it on the ban appeal forums (if you're currently banned) or by asking a mod to put up an infraction appeal (if not banned).

    If you're unhappy with a particular moderation decision or something systematic, PM me with links to specific examples.

    We're not going to encourage witch hunts and naming and shaming here. We have proper channels that can handle moderation work fine as is.
