I thought I would create another thread to steer the conversation of "community moderation and quality control" to a more appropriate forum and away from the more “free spirited and relaxing” BN Lounge..
As Jason stated, they
are knee deep in the process of not only getting content moderators, but we are also going to make some changes to the base content and forum systems to keep the junk out.
Before I go on ranting, I would like to give "two thumbs up" to the forum moderators and community leaders for addressing this issue and their actions to date. I understand that there will always be those who do NOT grasp the BN philosophies and principals for building a successful network marketing business, and who will always look for ways to crawl in under the radar.
I for one, would "welcome" all attempts to rate or ensure the “quality and value” to the community of the videos and articles in the public arena.
I'm always raising an eyebrow when I see things like the most "popular" vid of the month, with 800 +/- views, without a single rating, posted by someone that has been in the community for 3 weeks, and has less than 10 contacts,
or a points leader that belongs to 60 or 70 + groups.. I mean can anyone honestly add that much "value" to all those groups without a hidden agenda?
I believe the BN platform is without equal in the network marketing industry and with that in mind...
Please know that this post is not intended to throw stones or point out people that are abusing the system..
as much as it is intended to bring an awareness to the issue of "quality control" and solicit thoughts and suggestions from other members on the best ways to address the issue, and to maintain the high level of content that most people are posting.
