This website isn't just a fanbase for a goon on youtube, it has millions of users and more join every day. It would take a virtual SQUAD of volunteers to moderate a chat.
If anything, I'd say limiting the amount of people who can join in to the chat at one time would help keep things in check. Possibly have 2 or 3 chat rooms with different assigned moderators/volunteers so that one person isn't in charge of corralling 600 people at one time.
This stuff isn't as simple as it sounds. I moderated for a fansite 'back in the day' in which it was difficult to keep tails on the two dozen or so goons that would troll around everyday and I was pretty much the ONLY person who was moderating it. That stuff get's tough reallllll quick.
As nice of an idea as it would be, I think a lot more thought then "I saw it here" would need to go into things.
I agree, that may be what would be needed.
and it is more than "I saw it here". I am just listing the site that it was most successful at.
It would be a ton of work. I have modded at sites myself. Even hosted one that got pretty popular.
I didn't even think this was a very good idea. As I know this site is kind of short staffed. Just wanted opinions. xP
