Glossary Entry: Moderator

Quick Definition

Running a website or forum* can be a task for one person, so frequently there are lower-ranking administrators appointed to help keep the peace and move things along. These assistants are known as Moderators, and usually have the power to close threads*, remove offending posts, and may be capable of kicking* or banning* repeat offenders.
