I am considering adding photos and videos to my site. But I'm concerned that people will upload irrelevant photos/videos, clouding the experience for other members/visitors. So I'm wondering about doing photo/video moderation.
So my questions for those who have had photo/video features for a while are:
1. Does it really matter if people upload irrelevant stuff (as long as it's not, you know, porn)? As an example, my site is focused on NYC, and some people join just to promote their non-NYC-focused albums, books, events, etc. Do I let that slide? Do the irrelevant posts fall away, based on lack of popularity? Or does the variety of content actually help boost visitorship?
2. What pitfalls have you found with moderation? Is it too time consuming? Is it too difficult to judge what IS relevant? Do people post fewer photos/videos because they don't get the instant gratification of seeing it on the site immediately?
Any guidance would be very helpful!
