A few months ago, the diamond moderators made a decision (citation needed) to back off a little bit on unilaterally closing questions. We did this to
- Encourage community moderation
- To not impose our will upon the site
A side effect of this is that Review Queue has been growing. We have a decent number of 3k users, but only a handful who review on a consistent basis. We can't seem to get past three close votes on most questions.
Drupal Answers is moderated by the community, and we need more more participation to keep the quality up.
3k users need to start reviewing more and taking action.
- Vote up/down questions
- Edit bad questions, especially those that appear to be from ESL users
- Vote to close on questions that really need it, and leave some comments to encourage more information and/or explain what is bad.
Remember, the diamond moderators are really just janitors. Flagging should only be used for posts that can't be salvaged.
And also keep in mind that just because something is in the Close Vote queue, doesn't mean it has to be closed. If you can edit it into shape, please do so.
