I wanted to chime in here. The message board is moderated first thing in the morning, every couple of hours during the day, and also before bed at night. Have you noticed the process being slower than the old board? Because if you say yes, I would be very surprised. The old board only let us moderate 5 posts at a time, and took forever to upload. So, please expand your thoughts on posting slowness.
We, too, agree that some posts are rude in nature. We are sure that you have suddenly seen threads disappear, this is usually why. We want to allow your voices to be heard, we am not going to be parenting while we moderate, but at a certain point, if we all can't be respectful in our posts, threads will be eliminated entirely, and if we notice a trend with someone continually being rude—we will suspend their account.
Additionally, we agree that there are a handful of questions that are repeated time and time again. The original question gets approved, and then we come back in 10 minutes to moderate and there may be 15 people that have answered the same question. One option would be to only approve the first correct response to the question. What do you all think about that?
Allowing people to share personal stories and things of this nature will continue. The message board is very safe and special place for a lot of people, and many of you have become close over the years. These posts are not slowing down the moderating process, but rather bringing some people closer together.
We look forward to your responses!
