 +===== Forum moderation and administration =====
 +
 +The forum at [[http://forum.ipxe.org|forum.ipxe.org]] should be moderated regularly using this process:
 +
 +  * Go to [[http://forum.ipxe.org/modcp.php?action=modqueue|Mod CP > Forums & Posts > Moderation Queue]] and approve or delete every item in the queue. If you see multiple posts by the same user with more or less the same content, keep the one that seems more complete. If they are all identical, keep the oldest one. All threads and posts that look like spam should be deleted.
 +  * Make sure you recheck the moderation queue until you get a message that there are no more threads or posts available for moderation.
 +  * If you're an administrator, go to [[http://forum.ipxe.org/admin/index.php?module=user|Admin CP > Users & Groups > Users]] immediately after post moderation, login with your username/password again and click the blue ''Views'' button at the right above the table and select the ''Potential spammers'' view. Our definition of a potential spammer is a user that has registered but not posted anything. Delete all the users in the ''Potential spammers'' view. You might need to do this multiple times if there are more than 200 spammy users registered.
 +  * Finally, go to [[http://forum.ipxe.org/admin/index.php?module=tools-recount_rebuild|Admin CP > Tools & Maintenance > Recount & Rebuild]] and click the ''Recount Statistics'' button.
 +  * If you go to [[http://forum.ipxe.org/admin/index.php?module=tools-statistics|Admin CP > Tools & Maintenance > Logs > Statistics]] you should see how many users you deleted by looking at the top of the table after the charts.
 +  * And now you know how to moderate and clean the forum. Do this as often as time permits.
