So, officially, Experts are the forum moderators, and that comes from Line 6. So, previously when asked about it, they've been dishonest. I seem to remember another thread where an expert flat-out said they have nothing to do with forum moderation.
From now on if we have questions about technical data, don't even bother here. Make a support ticket and post the results.
What Zap said was that "we don't run the forums", so really he didn't answer your question. We do have access to some moderation tools, but we typically don't do a lot of actual moderation. Ideally, things don't need moderated that much.
Prior to the new software rollout six months or so ago, there were no other moderators besides the relative handful of Line 6 staff. If you remember correctly, the old forums were overrun with spambots, and by the time an actually employee could get to them, there were so many spam posts, the forums were saturated. I think Line 6 wanted to mainly make it so there was at least more eyes on the forums that could do something. And, really, that's the bulk of the moderation duties I've ever done - delete spam postings and approve new memberships to make sure it's a real person. I'm not interested in censoring anyone, but there are some posts that clearly go over the line sometimes.
Time is a train
Makes the future the past
Leaves you standing in the station
Your face pressed up against the glass
