Community Moderators give their time, energy, and expertise to participating in the Microsoft Dynamics Community. They help the community by occasionally moving questions to the correct forum, managing abusive threads and spam, and marking verified answers. They are also independent voices who provide different perspectives and different kinds of solutions. That is an important part of any community because it balances the type and point of view of the answers and replies in the forum. What actions do community moderators perform? For volunteering, Community Moderators have access to additional site tools not available to other users and are encouraged to use these tools to help monitor and maintain the quality of content in the community. Community Moderators move forum threads to the appropriate forum, manage abusive threads and spam, and mark suggested answers as verified. Community Moderators also get advance notice of feature launches on the Microsoft Dynamics Community, and when possible are invited to preview these site features before they launch to the general public. Furthermore, other members of the community recognize Community Moderators as experts who have been promoted in recognition of their passion for a Microsoft product or service.
