Re: Once upon a time there was a moderator for this group.....RESPONSE FROM A MODERATOR
Are there still moderators? It does not appear so. Does anyone know?
To answer the initial question,,,yes there are still moderators on duty who must approve, edit, reject or delete EVERY single post. However, our job is NOT to be an English teacher. We will not correct spelling, we will not correct grammar, we will not correct punctuation, we will not capitalize a name for you, and we will not check to see if a link is correct (how would we know the correct link?). That is the responsibility of the person who is posting. We will simply make certain of the following rules apply:
Personally, I believe in a lot of communication for information in Jewish Genealogy, so in my case I will approve almost everything that applies to the above rules and maybe even beyond! However, if there is a technical issue, a gripe or complaint about the site, please do not send it to the JewishGen Discussion group but to support@.... Also, understand that a single word like "thanks" or "OK" is not really relevant to send to over 7,500 individuals in a discussion group. For individual replies, please send it back to the person who had initially posted. I believe everyone would appreciate that.
Also please know and understand that we are volunteers and in my case, it is my way of "giving back" to JewishGen for all that they do and have done for Jewish Genealogy. We not only have to review and approve posts but new members as well so there is quite a bit to do.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please email the moderation team at moderators@....
Thank you for your understanding
