Moderating forums 

When moderation is enabled for Forums, a designated moderator can review posts before they are published to a forum and manage posts after they are added to a forum. Forums moderation is supported for community forums and stand-alone forums.

If premoderation is enabled for your deployment, when users create or reply to forum posts, the content that they add does not display until it is approved by a moderator. If postmoderation is enabled, the moderator can review content that has been flagged as inappropriate and the reason given for flagging it, and determine whether the content should be removed or the flag dismissed.

As administrator, you can control who has permission to moderate forum content using two scopes:

Global moderation

Community forum moderation

In addition to the global moderation interface and community moderation interface, the public Forums moderation API can be leveraged by third-party developers to moderate stand-alone and community forum content. For more information, see Moderating forum content programmatically.
