Hi everyone -- Got a couple of questions around modding this comm.

For those of you who are running communities and sharing moderation duties (b2mem, etc.), can I set up multiple people as maintainers? Have you found that usable or has it worked better to have an admin account that all the mods can use? Something like wsadmin is what I was thinking.

The comms I co-mod do both. It helps to have a mod account for discussion, to set up sample posts, and also most posts, since any boo-boos can be fixed by any mod on the account.

But it's also good to have multiple maintainers as well.

The only disadvantage to using both is occasionally forgetting to switch over sometimes, but that's really not a big deal.

Yes, you should be able to. As I said, we have multiple maintainers plus a mod account.

Just remember to switch back to yourself before you go commenting on your friends posts, LOL! (I've commented several times accidentally as lotr__mods, LOL!)

Yes, definitely spread the maintainer-ship, because things happen. You can also make people moderators, who can freeze inappropriate stuff and otherwise keep things positive.
