Definitions Edit

Moderation is

[a] way of maintaining rules or standards on a website, particularly in chatrooms and forums, by a person (moderator) who supervises the publication of the information submitted.[1]
[t]he monitoring and filtering of user-generated content by human or technical means.[2]

Overview Edit

"There are two main options with regard to moderation: pre-moderation and post-moderation. With the pre-moderation all comments are sent to a moderator who decides whether to accept them based on the conditions of use, with post-moderation all comments go straight to the e-consultation and the moderator typically monitors every 24 hours and removes any comments that breach the conditions of use."[3]}}
