We're looking for forum moderators for IH. Tell us if you're interested!

Edit 7/2: We've chosen three volunteers!

Like any popular online forum, Indie Hackers gets a lot of spam. Everyone can already report spammy posts, but we're looking for official mods from the community that we can equip with more powerful tools.


Volunteer by leaving a comment (or shooting me an email)!

    you guys seem to do a great job already. this is one of the least spammy "forums" i know of. tiring much? no wonder you're looking for extra help. :D

    i have the experience, but how much time would you expect from me?

  2. 7

    I'm on early in the morning UK time and there is a ton of spam.

    I have reported a lot of it.

    I would love to remove them instantly ;)

    1. 3

      Volkan is the person you need for this job!

    @channingallen and everyone else here.

    See how many people are here that want to help out? Now that’s what I call a true community.

    Hey Channing, I have been a huge fan of the forum since I discovered it. It has taught me a lot and honestly, I have been wanting to be part of it ever since and when I saw this opportunity I thought this is my chance. Let me know where I can apply or the requirements needed.

  5. 2

    Just dropping in to say I'm very impressed with the level of quality in the posts I browse through!

  6. 2

    Can't commit to anything in terms of fixed hours but I'm on the site every day multiple times throughout the day. Would be happy to obliterate any spam that I come across in my travels.

  7. 2

    Speaking of which, is there a way to report users? e.g. https://www.indiehackers.com/CREDITREPAIR/history

    1. 1

      When you’re logged in, there’s a small exclamation mark next to the user name on their profile page. That’s the report button.

      Reported that dude for you. :)

  8. 2

    I would put under spam not only obvious spam, offers, selling etc, but also article/tweet links posted without any explanation or at least short intro what is the article/thread about. Site is becoming a link farm and nobody is acting on it.

    Great initiative - glad to know IH cares about this :)

  23. 1

    You can add me. I am not a regular visitor, but I hate SPAM, and ability to insta-remove it would be great ;)

  24. 1

    I have reported some of the spam here.

    I would love to keep keeping here clean as a moderator

  25. 1

    @channingallen Love IH!

    I have learned so much from being a part of this community. I used to be active here, but not recently. I have noticed an increase in spam.

    Would love to help and understand the expectation! I'm interested in a few channels, let's discuss.

  26. 1

    Nice initiative. Some great volunteers already, would have happily thrown my name in the ring but it seems we are well covered.

    All the best with IH

  27. 1

    Yep, also happy to help, let us know how...

  28. 1

    Not sure how much time I could dedicate to this, but I've been reporting a lot of spam. I'd like to join, although with no promise that I can dedicate a fixed amount of time to this.

    I am interested! I usually am on the forum a lot, so if while I am online I also can prevent spam from happening that would be a win win!
