Moderation / Points?

I tried to add a serious comment to this page: Communications Overview for #1DXCOMMDEST not a snarky or negative rant, but was presented with this message:

Maybe I have been demoted...

    Hello Jeremy,

    Author of blog has options to select few "extended" options

    • whether to allow comments to his/her blog.

    so that could be the case.

    Regards,

    JK

    • Jeremy,

      If you go to a Document in SAP Fiori (Since you have full access), you can see the Collaboration Options. The last one is very much discouraged since a single new interesting document can add a huge number of items to the Moderators' queue. It is often a newbie who does not realize the impact that selects that option. However since Blogs (now and in WordPress) are single author items, there are only Extended Options for blogs and the Moderated choice is not present.

      Collaboration Options

      People who can edit this document

      • Just you
      • Anyone
      • Specific people

      Comment Policy

      • Open (Comments are allowed)
      • Closed (Existing comments will be displayed, new comments are not allowed)
      • None (Comments will not be displayed, new comments are not allowed)
      • Moderated (Non-Authors comments will require approval)

      I guess that when Document authors (not newbies who don't know better) deliberately select that option, it is so they can control the constructive criticism flow.

      Cheers, Mike

    Apparently the community has been hammering the team in the moderation queue and they are a few days behind. The newbie treatment was what caught me by surprise...

    Thanks @Jerry Janda for curing my conspiracy theory paranoia...
