Once a Polis survey is live, during the duration of its existence, voters can suggest statements for others to vote on. Our job as moderators is to only allow appropriate statements to be voted on. Often, voters ask questions, rather than make statements. This is a frequent occurrence, even when we make it clear that additional questions ought not to be asked as statements. Moderation also ensures that bad language and confidential information etc cannot be voted upon. There is skill and time needed to effectively moderate. The more voters, the more statements are usually submitted for moderation. Therefore, the largest surveys are the most time intensive for us. View moderation policy.
