I don’t think moderation is the best idea. You see yesterday I have posted the question and I could see there were 3 answers, but I couldn’t see them, because they were not moderated yet. So I need to wait for another day to see the answers…
Is moderation really needed? You need to ask the following question:
- Are there vast majority of posts not suited (like spam, inappropriate offensive language etc)? If yes, then moderation is needed.
- Are there vast majority of posts OK and only few of them brake the rule? If yes, then don’t moderate, allow all of the posts to be immediately visible and moderators delete the inappropriate posts when they read them.
I think the answer in this case is 2.
Case 1 is in most of the political, social etc forums where many rude, racist, inappropriate question/answers appears.
Case 2 is in most of the computer forums including this one.
Can you please write what is the real reason behind moderation?
