What am I able to do as a community owner?
To do any of the following, you'll need to make sure you're signed in under the community maintainer's journal. Once you're signed in, go to the community management page:
You'll find a list of all communities you manage, as well as links to take you to pages that will allow you to choose how your community will operate. You can:
Decide if you'll allow people to be able to join without your (or another moderator's) permission or whether you have to approve them first.
Decide if you'll allow everyone who joins to be able to post to the community (this means their journal entry page will include your community on their drop down menu allowing them to post directly to the community) or only some people.
Decide if you'll allow non-members to post to your community. (They do this by going to the community info page and clicking on the little blue pencil near the top of the page.)
Decide if you'll allow posts to appear immediately or require your (or another moderator's) approval before they show up.
Allow members posting access and/or maintainer status. If your community's posts are moderated, you can allow some members to post unmoderated and/or assign them or others as moderators to allow posts, without giving them maintainer status.
View and approve posts waiting to be posted.
If you have a community with moderated membership or posts, you can have an email sent to you to notify that someone is requesting membership or a post is waiting for approval.
