What is "moderated by"

Under a section in this forum such as Help Me, Members only, Exercises and so on, you see under that written as "moderated by ---" . Such as In Help me, you will see, moderated by Ricky, bob bundy, ganesh, mathsyperson. May I know what is that?

Different moderators and administrators are assigned to moderate threads within a specific section.

Re: What is "moderated by"

hi iamaditya

The website was set up by MathsIsFun and he has administrator status.  That means he can control everything to do with the site.  He has appointed moderators to help with that task and moderators can do some things.  eg.  If I find an unsuitable post (inappropriate language, pictures, advertising for example) I can delete it.  I can also ban a user who abuses the forum.  I have been 'assigned' certain sections of the website to 'keep an eye on'.

My biggest job in this regard is to remove inappropriate adverts and the person who has placed them.  Some guys seem to think it's ok to post a load of junk on our site and I have to stop them doing this.  I used to keep a record of every such deletion but it was taking up too much memory space and taking up too much time, so now I just zap them.

Hi Moderator,

Thanks for removing that (which I had written to do) post. I do not want to talk about it anymore, but I may suggest MIF To have an adult content filter on this site...

Re: What is "moderated by"

There are some filters but eventually a determined poster will find a way round.

I think making a report speeds up the process of getting someone to delete something.
