Peertube received around 27.000€ from their latest crowdfunding, but the lead developer thinks that I should invest my own time and money to implement working mod tools. Sure they have fixed some issues, but not nearly enough.

I wish someone would fork Peertube.

By the way, the issue that was closed as "irrelevant" is this one, which asks how to deal with Nazi instances. The answer from Framasoft seems to be "not at all".


@felix also loved moment when people here asked "will you pay a mod on your flagship" and they answered in lines of "it's not a place to make money" and I just can't.
Like, surely, it's a project by volunteers and whatnot but they didn't have to answer like that.

@charlag huh, that sounds like the discussion we had on the account. That instance is run by me and some others, it has nothing to do with framasoft. Unless you are talking about something else, but framasoft doesn't run any public peertube instance.

@felix uh, okay. I didn't like the response either way tbh.

@charlag the donations we receive just about cover the hosting for the server. If we received more money, we would definitely split it between the mods. I'm all ears if you have any suggestions for getting more donations (or other types of funding).

@charlag also, does your mastodon instance pay a salary to its mods?

@felix I'm the admin and almost the only user here lol

@felix yeah, I totally get it, I just think that the response should've said that instead of what it said.
And yes, m.s. pays its mods for example but that's an extreme example

@charlag and I think that people shouldn't have demanded that a fedi instance with 20€ per month in donations get paid mods. But yet here we are.

@felix no one demanded it, idk why you think that

@charlag @felix To be clear:

the @peertubesocial account ask if anybody would like to come and help out with moderation (it's not so much the excessive workload but the fact that we don't speak all the world's languages right now). Answers came like 'will you pay me?'

Framatube (Framasoft's instance) does not have open registrations so they don't really have to worry about moderation that much.
In the end, they don't see the hardship of moderation bc they don't have an instance like m.s

@Niquarl @felix I don't think this was the question.
I also disagree that instance without signups doesn't need moderation, much less, sure.
Good luck.

@charlag @felix Well it require a bit less moderation tools, let's say.

But comments and non-local videos need to be moderated indeed. I am actually surprised they haven't implemented better moderation for this as they should theorically need it.

I'm going to test to see if some of P.S blacklisted remote videos have been moderated on Framatube.
