When moderation is enabled for Forums, the content that users add to forums does not display until it is approved by a designated moderator.
The moderator for Forums can review and manage forum topics before they are published and review forum topics that are already available. In addition, when forum content is flagged as inappropriate by forum users, a notification is sent to the moderator, who can then review the content and decide what action to take.
Your administrator can specify whether moderation is managed by global moderators or by content owners. Users assigned the global moderator role can view and manage all moderated content from a centralized moderation interface that is available only to them. If owner-moderation is enabled for Forums, forum owners can review and manage content in the forums that they own.
The moderation interface provided by IBM
® Connections can only be used to manage community forum content. For more information about moderating community forum content, see Moderating community content
. For stand-alone forum content, moderators must use the Forums moderation API. For more information, see Moderating forum content programmatically
