    I found this by mistake & thought it might be interesting for the moderators here to have a to look at

    i have no clue when this survey was made yet non the less applicable....

    it was taken from Moderating Online Electronic Discussion Groups

    " a comprehensive study of electronic discussion group (EDG) moderators
    and their perceptions of their roles, tasks, and responsibilities."










    Findings included indicators of the roles of moderators acting a different times and for different lists as a filter, firefighter, facilitator, administrator, editor, promoter, expert, helper, participant, and marketer. The moderators responding to this survey cited reasons an EDG should be moderated as keeping the signal-to-noise ration high; keeping the discussion focused within the topic of the list's mission; keeping down "flames;" and digesting/editing posts. Most learned to moderate by watching others perform those functions--rather like apprentices, and either volunteered to be a list moderator, were invited to be, or started their own lists. They cited the reasons they moderate as including being work related, part of their leisure activity or both work and leisure activity.

    Fascinating that a member takes time and interest to be considerate
    to the moderators roles in this forum
    so that maybe they will understand what they are actually doing here

    since some tend to loose their way

    or?
