So forums work based on the amount of moderators ensuring the content cuts the mustard and the general running of the forum is smooth AND most importantly the community is vibrant. But, as you know, starting a new community is hard; so how did you do it? Are there any tips to finding moderators, do you hire them? e-moderation quoted me a £3000 set up & £1000 per month. I could hire a full time member of staff for that never mind online moderation. Any tips and advice would be appreciated.
