How will Yedda be moderated? Being a free service, how will it avoid becoming something like Yahoo Answers? (Just go visit, and you'll see what I mean)

I think you're making good points. I don't know what Yedda's plans are, but one can hope that Yahoo! Answers is the way it is because of Yahoo!'s user base (from before Y!A was launched) which is, I think, quite young. With Yedda being a more specifc site, maybe the users here will be different.

Time will tell.

Germanicus, the basic moderation facilities are already there - voting for answers, and the report abuse link (hopefully never to be used). 

There are some additional moderation facilities running behind the scenes to monitor for intentional abuse, and a few more community moderation tools coming soon.

But I would love to hear your own thoughts about this - what kind of moderation would you like to see on Yedda?

The collapsing comment feature in the comments of

Digg would be an excellent way to have the community moderate the answers.  Perhaps a reason for the thumbs down (ie. "troll" or "unrelated"or "innacurate" or something like that).  That way you're not deleting what people are saying, but there is a way to have the community moderate the answers.

I think that if Yedda get a big enough community and use google ad-words in a smart way, they can make enough money to sustain their integrity.

I think there should be moderation by user rating. If someone is tagged by members as being a spammer or answering inapropriatley, he will recieve warning and if conyinues hi e-mail address should be banned from logging in... what else can you do? that said, i don't think it will be too much of an issue...

I agree that there is a need to keep a real close eye on things.

Increased publicity for yedda recently has seen a big upsurge in the number of questions posted (and I suspect a decline in the question quality - not that I want to judge in any way because as far as I'm concerned people can ask what they want)

I do worry that yedda will end up like yahoo answers - which in some sections at least - has become almost unusable due to largely racist abuse and other similar behaviour.

My suggestions would be to let things run for a bit with no major changes but be prepared to step in behind the scenes if things take a turn for the worst.
