Hi all,

What do people feel about moderation of the support.typo3.org forum? I 
know that there isn't moderation for the newsgroups and mailing list, 
but what about (generically yes-or-no) moderation for the forums? Last I 
checked a few days ago there were over 16,000 unique visitors to the 
forum for the month of October to date, which means a lot of people 
going there. We have the capability to have members moderate and also be 
ranked as "experts" on individual skills or topics to help answer 
questions, so I'm trying to think of the best way to keep things flowing 
smoothly. I've seen in other communities (open source and proprietary 
software, non-software related, etc.) where they have a certain set of 
posting rules, flagged words, etc., and the original mailing list 
archives on the old typo3.com website were moderated at one time.

So, generically, should the forums be "moderate-able", or wide open to 
anything anyone wants to post?

If wide open, that's fine, that's how it currently is. If moderate-able, 
what should the criteria be?
