I have to partly agree with what Annoyance has to say because most of it is true, however I feel that the community has had a downfall due to players creating useless maps such as default islands with random objects on them, I don't mind the beginners doing that for their first project, but I believe that players need to try to create an awesome experience. Not like most of them don't try to anyways.

If I may chime in, I would probably rate moderators overall at 90%.
I think Daniel does as much as he can without going crazy. He's a super-developer at this point since he helps manage the testing community here, does quality assurance, fixes bugs, and has a hand in developing features. He probably deals with KoGaMa's support e-mail too. He always seems to have a positive attitude towards the players and tends to be open at listening to even the most ridiculous comments from longstanding players.
It's probably the same scenario with the BR moderators; they're simply limited to how much they can accomplish. If I'm correct at assuming they're from Clickjogos, then it's probable they also have other responsibilities for their company aside from moderating the community on KoGaMa. Nevertheless, I do sometimes see indications that they do put in the effort to listen to their community's concerns (i.e. copying, hacking, better highlights, etc.). They're active in social media outside of KoGaMa's website and also occasionally promote interesting events for the players. The only doubts I have are on how strict they may sometimes be because I'll encounter players who migrated to Friends that are angsty about punishments over the smallest, even innocuous transgressions.
Me on the other hand, I'm sub-par at being a moderator. I might be more available to talk with on the website at a given time, but I'm not always able to resolve everyone's problems. I'm more likely to join a game or project if asked to, yet I won't stay for very long. If I had to self-evaluate myself, I'm unenthusiastic about my role and boring/too serious to talk with. Plus, I'm not ambitious enough to take on more obligations (e.g. stopped hosting events, not asking for moderator privileges on other servers, etc.).
Anyway, that's some feedback about what I care to comment on. Some notes for improvement are:
bringing on more trusted players with limited moderator privileges to help share the burden of managing the community.
implementing better report and detection tools. For example, reporting comments and more third party program catching.
more recorded data for moderators to use. This and the point above would be useful for enforcing rules better.
And on the last note regarding planning and releases, though I have plenty of grievances I could talk about, I don't think it would be appropriate to talk about it in this thread since moderators don't have the same level of decision powers as the developers/team do.
i give it 75% because the mods are amazing and all, but really, they dont't do any meaningful updates anymore, along with new fun changes to make people play there game, also with good monetization because there's alot of very disgusting avatars in kogama, some are banned but still there's a few still left, no offense but i give a 75%
Hmm, I mean, kogama moderators are doing a good job making kogama, but they still need some improvements to make kogama better, they usually take some time to fix some issues, either because their busy
