Support LearnUps

Tim raised the idea of doing support learnups and suggested these topics.

  • A very quick hot to tag
  • How to manage the forum spam queue
  • How to and when to apply the moderation tag and when blocking is the only recourse
  • Sock Puppetry 101

These are good topics and sometime before the next meetup perhaps a pilot trial will be tried. @tnash was made the point person for this. 😉

I had already sent some moderators an email explaining how to determine if an account is a sock puppet or not. Everyone agreed that it should go into the moderator section of the handbook. I’ll sanitize the names and IP addresses and get that done.
