Moderators needed

Postby fox » 15 Mar 2013, 17:38

If anyone is interested in helping to moderate the forum, please post here. Main thing that needs to be done is approving relevant posts from new users so they wouldn't sit in queue until I come around to do it. While, obviously, disapproving spam posts.

There's a moderation queue RSS feed you can subscribe to if you want to help. I'll PM the details to people interested.

I could spend some time doing this, though not a huge amount and I'll be travelling for the next week - also, I'm quite a new user/forum member, so might not be the best candidate :)

OK people above this post are being promoted. The moderation queue feed is here: mqueuefeed.php

What you need to do is click on the post in the mqueue feed, see if it's spam or not, go to the post and either approve or disapprove (this really should be self-explanatory, it's standard phpbb stuff). Just click on a thingie.

You also get bonus moderator powers but try to keep them in check. I have a pretty laid-back moderation policy here, don't lock/delete threads unless spam, don't ban users unless spam, etc, etc. Everything except spam is pretty much allowed.

Edit: also, there is a bit of an additional criteria to the first posts. It should have some worthy content, mindless "me too", "thanks" etc posts should be considered spam.

Okay this should probably be enough for the time being. :)
