Moderator Central Message Boards: Connect, Share, Collaborate
- Moderator Central is the place for new and experienced moderators to go to connect with fellow moderators to ask questions, share advice, collaborate, and find resources. Since membership to Moderator Central has grown by over 3,000 members in the last few weeks, I wanted to make sure that everyone is aware of the wealth of information that can be found on the Message Boards.
The Moderator Message Boards (http://advision.webevents.yahoo.com/moderatorcentral/message_boards.html) are the place for new moderators to ask for advice about setting up their group, for more experienced moderators to discuss tips on member recruitment and managing group dynamics, or to stay up to speed on technical issues, common challenges, and workarounds. These public forums are in a threaded message format, so they are easy to follow and search. You can even subscribe to an RSS feed or Alert so you don't miss a thing.
Some basics for participating on these Message Boards include:
Search the existing topics on the message boards before posting a new topic to see if your question has already been asked and answered. Just type your keyword(s) in the search box at the top of the board and click the search button to see what’s already been posted on the topic. The key is to be as specific as possible so you can narrow the search results down as much as possible.
Post a new message: Go to the message list view, sign in to Yahoo! if necessary, and, click "Post New Message." Select your public profile (which is how others will recognize you), write both a message subject and message, and then click "Post Message."
Create a new topic: Briefly summarize your question or subject in the “message subject” line when you post a message.
Reply to a message: Click the "Reply" link at the bottom of any message, sign in to Yahoo! if necessary, select your public profile (which is how others will recognize you), write your comments, and click "Post Message." You can edit your message as you write it but you cannot edit it after you preview or post it.
