Suggestion: Flag/Report Feature

New posts and major edits to existing posts are sent for manual review and approval. This system works to keep low-quality and objectionable content off of Light.Fish, but comes with a few drawbacks:

-Not scalable- There is only one Miles. As Light.Fish continues to grow, the moderation workload will quickly become impractical
-Long wait times- New listings and edits can take days or even weeks to be approved. This is extremely frustrating for users
-Consumes large amounts of Miles’ time – Moderation diverts Miles away from site improvement or bug fixes. Heavy moderation workloads could lead to burnout.

A flag or report feature allows Light.Fish community members to identify low-quality, rule-breaking, and objectionable content. This has several benefits:

-Scalable- The community grows along with the volume of listings
-Less workload – Avoids the time-consuming and labor-intensive process of manually approving all listings and edits
-Efficient- Miles can focus on flagged/reported content instead of sifting through everything
-Community engagement

Hmm, yeah this is a tough one - for what it’s worth about 90% of listing submissions get rejected, most are low effort, bad quality images, poor descriptions etc. I like the idea of having trusted community members moderate the marketplace. If there are some folks interested in assisting with content moderation, I would be open to building out a set of moderation tools for those users!
