I mean you don’t need the devs to moderate the forum. You could entrust moderation duties to known contributors. Such as yourself Jo or Andrew. I have forum moderating experience dating back 10 or so years and would happily put my hand up.
I certainly would like to see the forum in general become more active, opening a more generalised section up is a good way to do this.
Yes I agree they could do that too, not sure what they will do if anything, just saying that judging by the amount of time they are on the forums, it’s highly unlikely that they will want to add another chore on top of the work load they already have which keeps them from coming in here often. Lots of us have forum experience, but that’s not what I want to do lol. I get accused of being nasty enough as it is 😛
