Moderator Duties

Postby SHARK » Sat Apr 22, 2017 11:58 am

A moderator plays a vital role in establishing the tenor of a forum and guiding its conduct. The duties of moderators include facilitating introduction of participants in a forum, encouraging robust discussion of the forum’s agenda, maintaining order throughout the proceedings, ensuring that the interactions remain within the identified theme and for online forums. It includes editing, moving and even deleting postings.

Discussion Facilitation
The main function of a moderator is to promote interaction among the members of a forum. The moderator introduces the participants to each other and keeps updating the forum on new members. The members of a forum convene to discuss specific topics and it is the duty of the moderator to encourage lively debate and discussion that is enriching to all participants. The moderator also answers questions that may arise in the course of the discussion. In online forums, moderators also have a duty to update the website with all the latest developments and contributions from participants.

Thematic Control
Every forum has a theme and it is up to the moderator to ensure that the discussion stays within the thematic parameters. In the event that the forum appears to be straying, the moderator guides the discussion back to the stated topic.Therefore, moderators ought to be knowledgeable about the topics they present for discussion.

Orderly Conduct
It is the responsibility of a moderator to maintain order during discussions and to see to it that all participants behave with courtesy. Forums involve the exchange of ideas whereby participants air their views and sometimes engage in debates about the identified topics. Therefore, there is a possibility of the discussion becoming unruly particularly where the forum topic is controversial. Moderators order the forum by keeping the discussion civil and constructive. They share the rules of the forum, which may prohibit abusive language, derogatory comments and such other offensive behavior.

Content Relevance
A moderator has authority to determine the content of a forum so that it is relevant. The duty is especially useful in online forums where the moderator can edit the content of the discussion, move contributions that are not directly related to a given topic and even delete contributions that are not relevant. The moderator also protects the integrity of the discussion by doing away with contributions that are unlawful or illegal in any way such as defamatory statements and copyright infringements. Forums gain more popularity when the content therein is consistently relevant to participants.

Thought of posting for the benefit of Mods. We have 2 new Mods in TEC now. And their job would be made simple if the guidelines are set in motion. Also it is this season of time that we all need to be vigilant for any breach. Seniors need to be more cautious, for members and there could be few getting through the net with bad motives if no controls in place.
So getting help from the seniors in calibre of sash,path, stocks hunter and others would be useful.
In order safeguard all of us.

Thanks Shark this is much helpful.. :)
.
I think I need to kindly note this.. I do NOT want to hurt any member (without regarding any seniority or personal/previous issues) or I have no any personal agenda. So, I do not delete or warn except when a member breach the forum rules, but I do not hesitate when someone did. Whatever I do, to protect the peace and harmony and for the betterment of the forum. Hope our members'll kindly understand it. :)
Thanks all.
