Since 1994, I’ve been running Cyburbia, an urban planning-related Web site. The busiest part of the site is the vBulletin-based [url=“http://www.cyburbia.org/forums/”]forums**; not as busy as the SDMB, but there’s still about 300 posts a day.
There are several users who have volunteered their time to help moderate the boards. Because the board doesn’t attract an extremely wide audience – mainly professional urban/town planners, students, and city aficionados, there aren’t too many problems with trolling, sockpuppets, and the like.
Still, though, the mods aren’t as experienced as those here; they don’t have to pour through thousands of posts, and they might be relatively new to the bulletin board scene. Is there any wisdom the SDMB mods can offer that I could relay to the folks on my board? Are there any Web sites that offer general advice to bulletin board moderators?
