Upcoming Webinar: "How to Effectively Moderate an Online Community"

Community Management Webinar #3: How to Effectively Moderate an Online Community

When: Thursday, January 24, 2013, 9 a.m. Pacific time

You all know that moderation is about far more than removing the bad stuff -- to better define the process, we got the guy who has a lot of smart answers: Richard MillingtonIn his first webinar for Ning, Richard talked about strategies for generating activity. In his second, he tackled growth. And on Thursday, Richard will cover some of the most-asked questions about moderating and facilitating member engagement in an online community.

Thursday, January 24th at 9-10am PST


In this webinar, Richard will cover:

  • The principles behind effective community moderation
  • Why you should spend more time on keeping happy members happy rather than trying to appease antagonistic members
  • Shaping the right environment
  • How to initiate discussions and solicit contributions
  • Practical tips you can *immediately* implement to increase happiness in your community

Sweet. I'm in!


Totally would if I wasn't at work! I'll catch the stream afterward. Love these recent webinars!

I´m in too.

Glad to hear some of you can make it! 

For me it's very difficult to moderate the chat, some moderators participate in discussions that make the rest of users angry with LeyCosmica.org

Nor do you know what happens when you're not witnessing.

ok, Im in :D I want to share the nice experience for any creators!!


If you couldn't make it, or are looking for tweet-sized nuggets of wisdom: #NingTalk. Recording to follow!

Woohoo!! I will have something to watch now! :)

I missed the webinar :( When we will have the recording?

Hopefully tomorrow, but we may have to wait until Monday. The sound did not come through on my own recording, so I'm waiting to connect with Richard for a clean copy.

The recording is now available. Watch "How to Effectively Moderate an Online Community" on our Vimeo page. Let us know what you think in the comments section, feel free to suggest topics you'd like us to cover in the future, and tweet your thanks to @RichMillington!
