The traditional moderator role focuses on the problems of a community. People might post bad things, conflicts might erupt etc..

Moderation doesn't have to be a reactive process focusing on what can go wrong in a community, it can be a more encompassing role which both removes the barriers to participation and motivates people to interact.

  1. Resolving conflicts/removing bad content
  2. Structuring the community.
  3. Dissipating and concentrating activity
  4. Stimulating discussions
