    we always focus on the backend (mainly admin panel) and frontend (users side) however we keep -forgetting- a very important wheel of the machine that is the moderating team
    what tools will moderators have to manage a community built on xF?

    Tools that work. From the demo I saw it works, and works well. Moderators will be able to learn it quickly, and use it easily and save time.

    we need more details, like what kind of tools, will there be anything revolutionary?

    I'm not sure there is anything revolutionary... and the tools are standard tools.

    Keep an eye on the forum "have you seen", when it's time for the team to publish something they will most likely publish it there.

    It'd be nice if moderators had additional abilities, to give them more control of a moderated forum.

    The tools are very easy to find and use. That's all I can say, as this will be the subject of a 'Have You Seen..." post from either Kier or Mike.

    can't a mod here make a topic about it in Have You Seen ? of course with Kier and Mike's blessing

    Nope. It's their place, being the developers of the software. I'm sure there are features that we haven't even found yet.

    One thing I am hoping is a huge departure from vBulletin is how moderated posts are handled.

    In vBulletin, moderated posts:
    • Instantly disappear, confusing and angering users
    • Do not always show up in search results for "New Posts"
    • Have an extremely subtle effect which I even miss sometimes. A tiny MSN-like icon in the lower right corner... really?
    • Are only displayed as a notification in the AdminCP.
    Hopefully in XenForo, moderated posts:
    • Remain visible to the user/poster, with a notice that this post is Pending.
    • Always appear under New Posts, and must be forcibly marked read.
    • Have a more prominent CSS graphical effect, such as a different color background, jagged paper edge on the right, etc.
    • Display to moderators and admins as an Alert.

    1. Moderated posts are always displayed to the user that posted them. (Unless it was a guest, of course.)
    2. The post displays an orange bar at the top saying it's not visible. Similar to deleted posts when you actually try to view them. The thread list item had a more noticeable view, but I think it may have changed with some CSS changes.
    3. They wouldn't show up in new posts as that's dependent on last post date and read state.
    4. Kier showed a clip of it elsewhere, but the count of moderated items is displayed on every page in the "moderator bar" and all outstanding posts can be managed from there.

    Ack, I was about to post that screenie that answered one of my issues:

    Great news on your other responses. ;) Again, thinking of the user instead of "What we've always done".

    I hope moderator permissions like 'can lock, can merge, can ban' etc. are done in a nice way too.
