Moderation

March 2014 [[3]]

To keep Central a friendly and supportive place for all volunteers we should:

  • state a minimum number of mods to be involved in the mod team (5) that do the work involved in the running of the group
  • run a regular survey to include feedback for why people have joined or left, why they would choose special notices and whether the moderation in place is acceptable
  • apply a very light touch moderation process only, with the priority to keep Central as unmoderated as possible
  • only use moderation when messages are abusive, overtly aggressive or threatening

Moderation process:

  • the Central mods team have responsibility for moderation on the group
  • allow all with mod privileges on Central to act in 'emergencies' to put a member on moderation
  • anyone put on moderation must be informed immediately
  • the period of moderation to be kept as short as possible and lifted when mod(s) are happy that the problem is sorted
  • Central to be told moderation is in effect
  • moderation for messages on Central will only be implemented on Central, other central group moderators will take advice from the Central mod team if a member posts on their group and run a parallel moderation of member if necessary
  • messages received from moderated members to be processed as quickly as possible - either returned or approved
