Moderators get full in-line controls to affect single or multiple items. They get all of the standard controls like close, sticky, split, merge, delete, etc.
Quickly and easily remove and ban a user and all the user’s data. Find out if a user has multiple accounts. Deal with Trolls by making them invisible to other members.
Just like demerit points on a driver’s license, moderators can assign warning points to members who break the rules. Get enough points and you end up in jail. Moderators can add notes to keep track of past activity.
Spam & abuse moderation queues are populated by trusted members, making it easy for moderators to jump in and take care of issues before they become problems.
Moderators can edit everything in real-time, split, merge and move discussions. Sinking a thread makes it fall down the discussion list even if it gets new comments.
Your moderators have access to a full edit & delete history for all comments, and can even roll-back content to a previous version or undelete deleted content.
Mods and Admins can post a dissmisable message that can appear anywhere throughout the site.
The Akismet and StopForumSpam plugins check content and usernames against real-time spam blocklists. Suspected spam is put into a spam queue.
Users can identify spam by clicking on the spam Reaction. If a post gets enough clicks, the content gets sent to the spam queue.
Links in posts are set so that search engines don’t crawl them. This creates a disincentive to spammers looking to get their links into search engine indexes.
If a spam-bot does get through, flood control prevents it from filling the community with garbage.
Ranks can be used to restrict a member’s abilities including adding links to posts and being able to edit a post after a certain time has passed. This helps combat human spammers.
When you find a spammer, you can ban them by username, email, email domain or IP address. You can also delete all posts by the spammer and clean up the mess they created.
