Moderators can be added to a public or private forum to perform management functions within the forum. Moderators have the ability to to add members to a forum, change the title and description of the forum, as well as lock a thread within a forum from further commenting.
To add moderators to a private forum, first create your forum then select 'Add Members' and choose the users you’d like to add. In a private forum, moderators must be members of the forum first.
You can then select 'Add Moderators' to add the people you’d like to moderate the forum, then click the 'Add & Notify' button.
To add moderators to a public forum, simply select 'Add Moderators,' select the people you’d like to moderate and click the 'Add & Notify' button.
As the owner of the forum, you can always delete a moderator by clicking the trash button next to the moderator’s name.
You can also do this from the forum homepage by selecting the gear icon for the forum you want to update and then 'Manage Moderators.'
