Community Moderation & Reported Posts As discussed in this thread, we're making changes in order to improve the atmosphere of Northwest Firearms. This new system will remove threads or posts which are reported by multiple members, placing them in a 'moderation queue'. After review a moderator will choose to delete or restore the item (depending on whether the complaints are valid) and issue an appropriate warning (if needed). Member observes a rule violation. Member reports the violation using the report button. Thread or post is hidden from view and submitted for moderator action. In implementing this new feature our aim is to get the community more involved in the moderation of the site. With the community using this feature it's our hope that this will become the primary method for moderation content here, but this will only happen with widespread use. Two Notes: Moderator permissions have not changed. Every report is reviewed regardless of whether the content was removed via community moderation. Feel free to discuss this here.
