Our lists have moderators to ensure civility. Moderators review the posts of all new members before approving them to post automatically. Some existing members may be placed into moderation if their posting pattern changes such that it violates our list guidelines (see below):</p> <strong>When posting to Public Lab lists:</strong><br> <ul class="list-unstyled"> 1) Stay on topic<br> - stay on topic to make long threads easier to follow<br> - if you diverge from the main thread/topic/subject, consider breaking off into a new thread/topic/subject to help others follow along<br> - avoid sending one-line spurious responses that effectively "spam" hundreds of people and lowers the overall content quality of a conversation<br> 2) Use clear subject lines when starting a new topic<br> - Subject lines are not the place for humor or euphemisms, although enthusiasm is OK.<br> 3) Mind your tone<br> - since we are in a conversation in email form, maintaining a tone of respect is essential. Any of the following can result in a member having their posts moderated before going out to the whole list: aggressive tone, disrespectful tone, mocking tone, off-color tone<br> - a note on humor: expressing ourselves online in text is different from expressing ourselves in person by talking<br> </ul> Before you are placed into moderation, you will be notified on the pertinent list. <h2>List management</h2> As the # of topical/local lists grows, some consistency in spam handling, joining policy, and naming will be very helpful. Also, we want to just be careful not to let research-related conversations fragment. To this end, each smaller list has at least one <a href="http://publiclab.org/wiki/moderation">moderator</a> responsible for moving conversations to the appropriate list and "bumping up" topics of general interest by saying "Wow! Please take this extremely interesting conversation to the main <strong>publiclaboratory<strong> list!"
