I often post moderation related stuff on my main world. However, I thought it might be nice to have a world that deals directly with stuff like that. I can answer questions that come up here and I can also debunk some of the myths and misunderstandings that I come across when working on the site.

Moderation is something that is often vastly misunderstood, mainly because people make assumptions instead of trying to find out the facts. Second hand knowledge that is floating around and passes from member to member should always be treated with caution. Just as one should also be careful about determining how things work when they themselves are not a moderator.
