Metamoderating sometimes I wonder in what degree my metamods had an effect on the points gathered by a comment.
I think a democratization of Slashdot may be for the good of all slashdotters.

There would be nice if moderation was more generic: moderators had a kind of moderation point that had an effect on how effectively they could modify a comment and/or article.
Moderators would gather moderation power by a ranking system by nonmoderators who did not got points from the moderator in question. The more moderation power points the more modifier points to give away.
Any user may elevate to moderator if she/he want when the comments/artickles by this person are ranked high. - How many points in average would be enough to this status change maybe 60 point in 6 months.
Flaimbait, Troll and Funny are negative values of course.
I'd like to see a "Fun" moderation too: let have real fun, not just funny!

At last but not least all articles should be moderated and shown in order of moderation points.

This system could be started from stats of the prevoius 6 months at any time.

Of course I'm not sure it would work well: there are enough intolerant and agressive slashdot users to destroy such ranking system...
