As in, complete uptight, need-to-be-accepted-before-posting kind of forum? Any new thread asking an old question is thrown away, any response that does not satisfactorily answer the question is deleted, that kind of thing. This kind of style makes perfect sense in the contest forums, as they exist solely to discuss contests, and so only practical contests need to be discussed.
But do you think that the technical forums need stronger moderation than we currently have?
Yes I do. Not in a completely uptight way. But, if someone starts a lightsaber thread, I would PM them a response saying why the thread was deleted and I would point them at an established lightsaber thread.
I think this technique makes it easier to find what you are looking for and eventually people would not need to create new threads.
There might even be a thread for people to ask ‘where’s the best (insert subject here) thread’, although this might discourage proper use of search.
I would also work with the Minister of Filming Resources to make the FAQ and resources more noob friendly, if necessary, by asking the noobs for feedback on why they couldn’t find what they were looking for.June 21, 2007 at 10:12 am #297607

So long as a clear precedent is set, I assume other moderators can fill the same role when richard isn’t around.
However, it is true that threads can get replies quite quickly. Are you fine with removing these responses? Will you include the contents of the replies in your PM to the thread poster? What if someone spent quite a bit of time writing their reply?
