emma999 says: 12 Months AgoHi friend,
Just a word or two on moderating groups. This will be my viewpoint, which you may ignore if you wish to do so.
Yes, this option/ tool is 'great' when people don't know what they are doing/ do on purpose something silly to upset you, like; upload wrong wallpapers to your groups.
The downside of moderating is that it tends to put members off from joining the group. Controlling things is appealing to some people if not to all, (no one wants things going out of control) but..., people also like to be treated with respect and trust. I mean, trusting that they are intelligent enough to know what they are doing. Since none is a perfect human being, mistakes will happen. A person's eyesight may be going poor and she/he may need glasses or new prescriptions for their eyesight problems so they click on the group above or below the intended group, and have not noticed it for one or the other reason. People also come here to do things but may be already mentally tired, so end up doing things automatically, with a half brain working and other half going off to sleep, sort to speak.
It's happened to me many times.
In a situation where group is NOT moderated, the group leader can still remove the inappropriate images by pressing the *X* button. End result; everyone is happy, and you may gain more members. :) Just givin' my opinion on it. :)

phoenixfyre says: 12 Months AgoThose are good points. This is my first group, so I was doing what the instructions suggested. I try to check a few times a day, nothing more annoying than waiting for things to be approved. I have some wallpapers that have been waiting for a month, I think the group owner must have lost interest. I'll try it without the moderation
BTW, your wallpapers are great,I'll be downloading them.
emma999 says: 12 Months AgoThanks dear friend! I also started my first group by moderating it, and learnt that it cost me more in time, checking all the time, every day. Glad you didn't mind it. You're a very nice person!:)
