As we welcome our new
rulersmoderators (congratulations!), and they discover the ropes of moderation, it seems to me the ideal time to ask this question.
What do moderators wish the users of Unix & Linux knew?
(I mean users of the Stack Exchange web site, here, not general users of Unix-style operating systems.)
By extension, what would moderators like the users to do more, or less, of?
I’m thinking of features such as flagging: to new (and apparently many not-so-new) users, this feels like invoking Zeus — surely the moderators are busy, and have better things to do than take care of this trifling issue? And yet, flagging can be very helpful, when done correctly.
So, old moderators, as you explain things to the newbies, here’s your chance to also explain them to everyone. New moderators, here’s your chance to communicate the surprising features and/or behaviours you discover.
