So my reason for bringing it up in that topic is because I'd like to see more active moderation. Mostly warning, maybe even removing, off topic posts (including those "I don't care about this topic" posts). In a chronological forum thread like we have here, a few off topic posts can so easily derail a topic. Most likely the last couple posts are those you remember when reading through a topic and you reply to those, if off topic you may even unwittingly continue the off topic-ness. And the actual conversation is all but forgotten. In a forum like reddit off topic can easier be hidden away and not disturb the conversation happening.SveinR wrote:Does anyone want to be a mod?

If someone wants to be a mod send me a PM and we can make it happen.
You may argue that there's not that much activity on lauta anyway, so a few offtopic posts is no big deal, might even spark some extra activity. But I believe that removing the bad posts will actually spark more conversation, because they are not derailed.
Then there's small things like illegal signatures etc. Getting such cleaned up just makes things a little more pleasant.
