A moderator plays a vital role in establishing the tenor of a discussion and guiding the conduct of participants. Moderators are needed at political debates, community forums, town hall meetings, research symposiums and assemblies. The duties of moderators include facilitating the introduction of participants in a forum, encouraging robust discussion of the agenda, maintaining order throughout the proceedings and ensuring that the interactions remain within the identified topic.
The primary role of a moderator is to promote cordial interaction among the members of an audience or discussion group, according to NASFAA. The moderator introduces the participants to each other and keeps updating the forum on new members. The members of a group convene to discuss specific topics and it is the duty of the moderator to encourage lively debate and discussion that is enriching to all participants. The moderator also answers questions that may arise in the course of the discussion. Social media moderators have a duty to update the website with all the latest developments and contributions from participants. The moderator’s role may extend to reviewing comments and approving requests to join the group.
Every discussion has a theme and it is up to the moderator to ensure that the conversation stays within the thematic parameters. For example, if the theme of the forum is impressionist art, the discussion needs to stay within the boundaries of such art and cannot extend towards realist, expressionist or any other kind of art. Similarly, the role of a moderator in research symposiums is to ask questions that deeply probe the subject matter being examined. In the event that the forum appears to be straying, the moderator guides the discussion back to the stated theme. Therefore, moderators ought to be knowledgeable about the content they present for discussion.
It is the role of a moderator in group discussion to maintain order during emotional exchanges and to see to it that all participants behave with courtesy. Forums involve the exchange of ideas whereby participants air their views and sometimes engage in debates about the identified topics. Therefore, there is a possibility of the discussion becoming unruly particularly where the topic is controversial. Moderators order the discussion by keeping comments civil and constructive. They share the rules of engagement, which may prohibit abusive language, derogatory comments and such other offensive behavior.
A moderator has the authority to determine the content of a discussion so that it is relevant. The duty is especially useful in online forums where the moderator can edit the content of the discussion, move contributions that are not directly related to a given topic and even delete contributions that are not relevant. The moderator also protects the integrity of the discussion by doing away with contributions that are unlawful or illegal in any way such as defamatory statements and copyright infringements. Forums gain more popularity when the content therein is consistently relevant to participants.
Roles and responsibilities of gaming moderators
Game moderators tasks include the maintenance of online gaming platforms free from inappropriate, illegal content. Generally, moderators ensure that players adhere to the game’s rules and guidelines.
Game moderators can mute players that are sending inappropriate and offensive messages or comments while playing. Aggressive players that flood and spam message boards or send threatening messages to other users will also be muted.
If players report such incidents to their moderators, they can exercise their authority to put a stop to those occurrences.
Temporarily or permanently banning aggressive players under low-priority status. They ban misbehaving or resistant players so they’re not able to play for a specific period of time.
Kicking a player out is not a one-sided decision. It is always based on the careful assessment among all game moderators to maintain order within the game.
In severe cases, game moderators can initially isolate aggressive players while they assess the situation. It may be about the removal of malicious/offensive content, filtering out smurfs or fake user-level accounts, or cheating cases.
Overall, every game moderator is entrusted to uphold the integrity of the game. They perform this duty by blocking hackers and players trying to cheat their way into winning the system.
It’s also part of their responsibility to answer FAQs from players so that everyone can enjoy and have an improved experience of the game.
