Why posts are “flagged for moderation”
The ALS News Today Forums are designed for ALS patients, caregivers and medical professionals to connect, ask questions and share experiences – – as well as: provide a place for information and constructive discussion and feedback about living with Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS). Members are encouraged to start new forum topics and respond to existing topics.
Occasionally, a member’s post is “flagged for moderation.” These are the most common reasons why:
- Too many links to outside sites or unreliable (spam) links. Try to limit the number of links in your posts to only 1 or 2, so that members can check out your link and respond. Posts with a lot of links can overwhelm readers and trigger “flagging.” Do test the links you add to make sure the web address is correct and the site is legitimate (not spam).
- To protect and support our members, Forum Moderators are watchful for posts indicating the member is facing an emotional crisis. Their post will be flagged and a Moderator will contact the member privately to offer helpful resources.
- The post is long-winded, redundant and filled with angry, non-constructive comments or false information. Please post your thoughts in a concise, clear manner and avoid going off on rambling tangents.
Members and Moderators of the forum can flag and report any posts which they feel are in violation of these rules: https://alsnewstoday.com/forums/about-our-forums/
If you break the rules, you may find that your access is suspended or removed.
If you have questions regarding a post or thread that has been removed or subject to other moderation, please contact (private message) a moderator to discuss it.
Let’s respect each other and support our fellow members.
