    Default Why doesn't CrackBerry require moderators to moderate new threads?

    Serious question... Just realized that iMore requires moderator authorization for new threads... Why the heck doesn't CB do this?

    Uhh.. no they don't. If that happened to you, it was because you got caught in the filter. But, to answer your question anyhow, iMore is significantly smaller and sees very little traffic by comparison. The amount of threads created there in a day are like..... 2 hrs on CB. If that.. Thus why we'd never implement that here.

    Weird, it just happened to me. That's pretty cool that CB has that much more traffic though

    We DO get threads that go in to moderation, we deal with that daily. It does not happen to every thread, nor does it happen to every thread at iMore. Filters cause it to happen.

    I appreciate the responses. I was more curious than anything. Can someone enlighten me as to what causes a thread to be filtered? Thanks guys

    All of the things you'd expect can land a thread to be filtered (or reported)... foul language, trolling, spamming, etc...

    It's one of those strange mysteries in life... like how the universe was created... or how they get that tasty filling inside the Caramilk bar.

    I googled around a bit and it seems to have more to do with the fact that iMore is not the biggest apple forum, unlike CB, which is the biggest blackberry forum

    correct. There are many good iOS forums but no BB site even comes close to that of crackberry. We are and always will be the top BB site

    pretty clear that an attack or troll thread would be removed quickly.

    That's why I was surprised that supposedly the filter caught it, because I specifically went over my post multiple times to make sure it wasn't offensive or in bad taste. It was approved almost instantly and the mods even commented on it. Who knows...
