Re: Website is over-moderated

That is how we do it. If one of us makes a determination that a post needs to be deleted then we speak directly to the person. Weather it be nice or in some cases not so nice.

I understand you do not want to do it that way. And that shows you are not doing it correctly. With all due respect.

Re: Website is over-moderated

Long time moderator on an Auto forum. The number one most important thing to moderating is to communicate. There must be communication when a post gets deleted or somebody is breaking the rules.. If that does happen then it is not being done right. Period.
