    Hello,
    I own a Internet Marketing& Seo forum.
    Now I have a doubt.

    How should I choose moderators for my forum?
    What are the allowances for Moderators?
    Is it good to allow moderators to review a product/service before approval as in bhw?

    It is new and has around 200 visits a day and is growing very well.

    Thanks in Advance.

    Choose moderators from their knowledege, try finding people who seems to know what they are talking about, and of course are helpfull to the rest of the forum.

    Yes its a good idea whit reviews since your forum will be flooded whit products/services if you don´t do that

    At the moment there is No one with such a quality there.I am trying to get the discussions ON between users.

    Mod review is one reason BHW is different from WF and I would like to use this system as well.
