Well said.I understand the mods are volunteers and life happens. Happens for everyone. The thing is, in order for this community to survive you guys need to pass the torch. We don't fault you for wanting to take care of more pressing matters, but when the only mods are busy everything grinds to a halt.
Let's get a few people doing just seller verifications. Not new mods, just people to assist Dbest/whoever with the grunt work. Menial tasks like phone number verifications or if they filled out their profile can be done by other people. Or we can even just have someone else step in for verifications as well.
There are many solutions to this. Let's get a dialog going on how we can resolve this.
