I wonder how doable that is technically. Seems easy enough to enforce a limit to one user account. But what about alt accounts? What about users who run alt accounts trough a VPN or other proxy which defeats an IP or location based approach? What about the edge cases? Two mods at the limit on a public or shared device? One logs out and then another uses that device and because whatever measure sees both accounts on the same device the accounts are flagged as one single user violating the mod limit even though neither has?

Enforcement of a mod limit at scale could be a recipe for an unmanageable game of whack-a-mole. Also I'm unsure if or how much Mainchan allowing anonymous mods might throw a wrench in the works.

Just spitballing here, Cicero might know of some method that makes it super easy *shrug*

Perhaps an alternate route. What about multiple domain names? Throw a variable everywhere where the site name/domain is referenced (links, terms of service, site logo, etc.) And just dynamicly load the name based on which domain is being used. For instance the top logo could be "(%variable here).png" in the code and when viewed on mainchan.com would show "mainchan.png" or if viewed on main.social would be "main.png" (foo.com = foo.png etc) always showing the appropriate logo and site name to the visitor for each domain. It would make it possible to add domains for special occassions or as a joke (go to poo.social to load a joke version of the site with a poo emoji logo, brown dark mode and other poop related crap <-- see what I did there?).

Whichever domain pulls in the most users call that one the official domain and the rest alts. I do think sticking with the Main(something) nomenclature would be ideal though since the mainbros/mainhoes stuff is fun.

Edit: Also random feature request, a toggle in user settings to automatically upvote posts you reply to. I feel like a lot of people, myself included, forget to upvote posts when interacting with them.

Every time I see one of these reposted it gets more and more degraded. Art is by Jason Heuser, pristine versions of his work can be found on his Website, Artstation and Instagram.
