Moderation Process

When the Moderator identifies a Post/Thread that requires moderation the general moderation process will be invoked. The process is:

1) The Moderator will decide if the post/thread is to be moved from the current location to the Moderators forum for review. If the issue is serious, requires in-depth review and cannot remain accessible to the public then the post/thread will be moved to the Moderators Forum. If the issue is not considered serious, then post/thread will remain in the current position and moderation of the content will be done there.

2) The Moderator will alert the forum member who created the offending post/thread either via Private Message and/or email. The communication will contain the alert to the post moderated and the reason(s) why the post/thread was moderated.

3) Additional – If a post/thread has been moved to the Moderators forum, the Moderators will then update the forum community of any action taken within the same post/thread/forum of the offending content. Action(s) may include moderation of post/thread by moving, merging or splitting threads, deletion of content, editing of content or the locking of a thread.


Here are a few typical examples of ‘netiquette’

Search the forums before you post your topic. Your question or comment may have already been discussed, answered, or resolved.

Create a concise subject that adequately summarizes your topic. For example: “Start up problems with Power Supply Unit” rather than “I need help.”

Refrain from using ALL CAPITAL LETTERS, excessive question marks (?) or exclamation points (!) in your subject or content.

Provide details in your comment or question to increase the likelihood of starting a discussion.

Cross posting the same question in more than one forum will cause confusion and most likely reduce the chance of a reply.

Be patient. All the participants of this forum are using the forum and participating in discussions on their own time.

Help others. The forum is a community, and works best when people share information.

Give feedback. If someone helps you by answering your question, try to add a follow-up response letting them know if it worked or not.
