well, the general goal is to have a community without spam, very off-topic content and toxic environment, it’s the moderator’s role to steer a community to that state

mods usually look through recent posts and comments, and remove those that classify as spam or vioilate rules of the website (mostly the former), but as of recently when reporting functionality was introduced to lemmy, a lot of it is just reviewing reported posts/comments and deciding whether to remove them or not, in the beginning one also get to shape the community by creating rules, general theme etc

the effort required varies depending on commitment and size/activity level of a community and website: in the beginning this instance was like 90 % spam, and users were overwhelmed with it, but now there are a couple of spam posts a day, rarely more


/c/privacy is looking for moderators
greetings everyone, there's already >3.5k members here, not all of them are active obviously, but there are still a lot of posts on this sub, and even more comments, i can't really meticulously go through each and every one of them if you are somewhat active in this community, and have been on lemmy (or one of the other instances) for a few months, and would like to dedicate some time to moderating this community, please pm me :)
