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?
