A couple of weeks ago I posted about a new poll on Moderator Central and asked that you cast your vote on “Where is the first place you’d look to learn the basics of being a moderator?” and I have to admit I am surprised by the results.
Just under 500 people voted and this is how it broke down:
|FAQs within Moderator Central||43%|
|Message Boards on Moderator Central||9%|
|Y! Groups Blog||6%|
|Moderator support focused Y! groups||10%|
|495 Votes to date|
Based on these results, a great deal of moderators look to the “FAQs on Moderator Central” to learn the basics. The FAQs I was referring to when creating this poll can be found here.
I am curious to learn if these are the FAQs that those of you who voted are also referring to. If so, and so many moderators are looking to this source for answers, I’d love to hear your feedback on what additional FAQs you feel should be added by commenting below.
Based on these results, I’d also be interested in learning if you would you like to see more tips on the basics of being a moderator here on the Groups blog.
Big thanks to all who cast their vote! I look forward to your participation in the next poll – if you have a suggestion for a fun poll, please post your suggestion below in the comments area.
P.S. For those of you who chose “other”, where are you finding information?
