Moderation advice needed.
« on: September 26, 2018, 03:31:34 AM »
Hello, My community is relatively new only a month old and around 70 members. There are only 3 posts by members. One of the posts doesn't follow the rules. My question is do I need to be strict specially when my forum is new and being strict will further decrease no of posts.? What is the best approach for moderation should I initially loosely manage the forum ? or should I be strict right from the start.
Thanks

Well, to get an idea what you are referring to what was the rule that was broken? Generally, I find that if you do not moderate well at the start members will do what they want, but yes, that decreases the number of participants because most internet users want a FB kind of scenario where they can post what they want where they want.

Edit the post to conform to rules, with explanation.
