Guidelines for Moderators

Community members may moderate the open podcast episodes for Code violations and help channelise the public conversations.

Our community is growing vertically, and therefore at times, moderators may or may not provide grounds for an action of deletion(Deletion for moderation).

In the case of deletion of public messages, the moderation group should delete messages which:

  1. Disclose NPPI: Non-public personal information e.g. photos, personal information of a member, a government-issued identifier and the like, unless a member expressly waives the right to privacy.

  2. For many reasons such as communication between sparring members on a topic of interest, members wishing to take back their expressions, members may seek deletion of their public expressions. If the Media Committee has reviewed the request in the affirmative, expressions may get deleted.

  3. A Moderator/Ambassador should politely flag any violation of the Foundation's Code of Conduct.

Who can be the Moderators?

The members from the Editorial Committee of the CouncilPost, Media Committee members, Media CWC members, or Steering and CWC members of other committees of the Foundation. Generally, any nominated member holding an office to the constitutional body of the network may enable themselves as a moderator to the open podcast episode.

Moderation of a live conversation:

Open Podcast episodes are live conversations. The streams are real-time broadcasts on the Foundation's communication systems, where two peers are expressing their views and statements.

Open Council and its committee members(CWC: Core Working Groups/Committees) should only moderate an ongoing live conversation. The episodes are live-streamed, discussing a subject of interest.

The moderators should not take the dialogue personally. When the moderators flag a dialogue, they should do so, in a way which is polite to the panelists.

Further, read about "Sentient Bot", an AI anonymous communication system on Open Constitution's decentralised citizen network.
