Groups Moderation

Groups is a place for discussions and photo sharing around a specific topic. Each Group is created by a 500px member, and that Group creator is responsible for taking care of their Group; this person is the moderator. Here are some best practices for Group moderators to help foster a positive and effective community.

If a Group member is posting content unsuitable for the Group (spam, offensive, off-topic, etc.), try these steps:

1. Down-vote bad posts and up-vote good ones. All members of your Group should get in the habit of doing this.
2. Comment on bad discussions, giving the member suggestions how to improve. Encourage other Group members to do the same.
3. Delete bad content. Only moderators can delete content.
4. Ban the offending member from the Group. Only moderators can ban members.
