/r/pics June 2017 Transparency Report
I wanted to talk about what we have been up to. Specifically, what we haven't been up to. All of us have been pretty busy and the numbers really do reflect this. This isn't necessarily a bad thing. After all, we are humans. I recently moved and have no phone. Some of our other mods are out having fun, living life. Some are working, some are just lazy fucks but we love them nonetheless.
As volunteers, even a bit of time counts. But when a lot of us get busy at the same time, it can cause lower activity. This isn't a really something we did wrong – Just the nature of how volunteer moderating works. I tell my whole team that life needs to come first.
These things said, we are indeed looking for new moderators and new volunteers. You can find that information and apply at this post
