Introducing the New Group Moderation Tool

Attention all group moderators! We've introduced a new tool to the groups feature that allows you to moderate the sets submitted to your group. The most popular groups on Polyvore are those that have relevant and focused content within a group theme. Quality is better than quantity here. So if you'd like to see your group move up in rank, you may want to consider taking advantage of this new moderation tool.

Here's a quick tutorial:
  • If you're a moderator for an existing group, click 'Edit group information.'
  • Then, check the box next to 'All submissions must be approved by moderator' and click the 'Update' button.
  • Once this box has been checked, you'll be able to monitor the sets being submitted to your group. If you have sets pending approval, you'll see a notification next to the 'Moderate' button. Click 'Moderate' to proceed.
  • Finally, you'll see tabs for pending sets, rejected sets and approved sets. To control the quality of the sets being submitted to your group, you can either approve or reject pending sets.

I dont really get why we need this, haha. (: So does that mean that we have to check every single set sumbitted?

Kaylee said...

oh, ok... but do u have to do this with every set submitted??

Jessica said...

Good idea. But I still believe that groups should accept people's creativity whether it's really popular/good or not so good. Thanks Polyvore team!

Thanx so much, it's especially good for people to make sure the members in their group follow rules.

I Do Think It's Great! However, what if One goes on Vacation? Or is not on for a few days? I believe if you state what your group is about, it should be honored, and the features we have we are able to reject the sets if they are not suitable and we are moderating them as we should.

THANK YOU THIS IS AWESOME!!!

Now, another tool I've been dying for is the ability to send a message to all group members at once. Not everyone reads announcements, so this would be perfect! =))

I think this is fantastic! It helps out a lot. The idea of quality over quantity really rocks!

It would be even better if you could make something to show if a member is on. Otherwise we have to pm them and ask. And its just annoying. I have alot of friends that agree with me.

Pegasus Haven said...

I have since used this, and it seems no one is posting to my group anymore now. Because if they feel they have to wait, they will then just post somewhere else, as I did with my own because I didn't want to wait. It's hard to keep track of where your sets are being "Pending" because it doesn't show you. Then when you go to post somewhere else, you now reached the 5 limit mark. and it's too late.
I posted before but it seems like you only post Positive feedback. This should be equal opinions.

Anna said...

thats kinda cool, except didnt we kinda already have that as a reject type thing. but that kinda sucks for the people who have their sets rejected.

Anonymous said...

i think this tool has no use at all....

Anonymous said...

I think that is a bad idea!!!! if you dont let people submit any set they want they are going to get mad.

welovecolors said...

Thanks, Guys By WE LOVE COLORS =)

this sucks said...

that kind of sucks because what if you make sucky sets?? then you won't get them in groups and you'll never get faves.....

Anonymous said...

That sounds great! Thanks! I will us it for sure

Colie said...

I think this is kinda cool in the sense that you c ould make sure you're filtering your group from innapropriate things (i.e. cussing, racism, porn...)
thanks!

Anonymous said...

I think this is great and that sets WILL look better!

.....i dont want ppl messing with my sets!!

Pegasus Haven said...

Ok, I know I'm writing again. However The only way I see this tool going to work is if, you are able to submit your sets to as many groups as you like, however if you still want to hold the 5 group thing, then once the set is "Really" submitted to a Group it will then only allow up to 5 groups. So if you entered say 7 groups, and 5 groups accepted you. then the remaining ones submitted will disappear. Reason being is...we don't know if or when our set will be submitted. And the security of at least knowing it will be submitted onto the 5 groups will then be there. Hope this was understood.

Anonymous said...

cool i guess thx !!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

thankyou thats so cool!

Anonymous said...

Good idea. I may use it for my group. What we really need is a tool to rotate items!

moomoomolly said...

Hey This is cool but what if your set was added to a group and the moderator changed it. Pm me if I have it wrong!

Pegasus Haven said...

Ok, I have experienced this tool, and I have Submitted my set to 6 groups. One said it was pending and the others went right through. Leading to 5 groups maximum. I like to see that I have my 5 groups. So what happens to the one pending?? Does it ever go through? Does that mean I have no choice but to NEVER submit my set to a group that I have to wait for?? perhaps if you have something under the group symbol on our page that specifies (Pending) so that we know that we submitted group, and won't submit anywhere else until it goes through. In this case, we don't know anything or if ever. I have since stopped going to groups that do that now, casue it's annoying. Hope you don't think I'm complaining, I just have Great Ideas!! LOL
