What is expected of a Moderator?


Moderators are expected to conduct themselves in a professional and unbiased manner at alltimes. All moderators should take an active interest in promoting lively and helpful interaction on the forum. Help new users feel welcome, and help keep discussions entertaining while staying helpful and on-topic. Of course, you will occasionally need to step in and use some of your “Moderator Tools”(deleting/locking threads, etc.) to help prevent conflict.

Daily tasks for all moderators include:


- Deleting non-relevant posts and threads containing hurtful, non-constructive, crude, off-topic, or otherwise inappropriate remarks.
- Deleting threads or posts that break forum rules.
- Moving off-topic threads to the appropriate forum. (eg. Moving bug reports from Social Section to Suggestions & Feedback Forum)

Some Moderators will have specific responsibilities such as:
