Make forums for moderators only available for moving for forums which Moderators understand RRS feed

  • Question

  • I see currently many questions moved by moderators to forums which are for 100% not related to the question.

    Can this be avoided by giving moderators only rights to access forums from which they the topic understand.

    It seems now they took the first one for which they have access rights to move, to get it out of their forums.

  • Cor,

    As far as I know, moderators can move to any forum.

    I am not a moderator in a technical forum, so my experience may be different, but I tend to move to the "Where is the question for..." forum if I have no idea where a question belongs, and then let someone else suggest the right forum.

    If I have an idea where the question belongs, I will still move to the "where is the forum" forum, and suggest the right forum.

    If the OP requests, I will then move to the proper forum.

    If someone else who has clear knowledge of the issue comes along and suggests a post be moved to a certain forum, I will do that as well.

    I've done that on your suggestion before as well :)

    I think that when you see issues of posts being moved to the wrong forum, and you believe it's done just to get the post pout of a forum, rather than to provide help, that you email a link to fissues, with your reasoning - it's the best way I know of to get the forums owners involved.
