Monks who have attained Friar can moderate site content. The Approval Nodelet contains controls for approving posts into sections, frontpaging nodes, considering nodes for editing or deletion and voting on consideration requests.
The Approval Nodelet contains three important tools:
- Moderation allows you to approve a node for its section, and if it's good, for the Monastery Gates (the "front page") as well. For more info, see What is moderation? and How do I moderate?.
- Consideration is how you ask the janitors to take a look at nodes which have something seriously wrong. You type in a message describing the problem and a suggested fix, and submit the form. See What is consideration? for all the poop. Also read the all-important How do I use the power of consideration responsibly?
- Section Reassignment
is for nodes that are in the wrong place.
If a node hasn't been approved yet, you can move it to a different section.
If it has already been approved, but for the wrong section, you can
"consider" the node with a message about which section it should be moved to.
Since janitors can unapprove nodes, this will free up the node to allow some Friar
(like you!) to re-assign it and approve it into the correct section.
There are some limitations on which sections nodes can be moved between; see
What is consideration? for details.
Note that you must never attempt to move and approve a node in the same step! Or even two steps! You must follow this sequence very carefully:
- Move the node (change its assigned section, and submit).
- Reload the page.
- Approve the node.
