Steam Discussions - Moderation Update
How does this work?
Starting on Tuesday, when a discussion thread or post in your community is reported by a player, it will be added to a queue for our moderation team to review. We’ll look at these reported posts (along with all other reported content we are already reviewing) and remove anything that violates our Community Guidelines.

Don’t worry: We won’t be actively perusing your community discussions or posting in threads - you have your own voice and your own style of communication with players about your game. We’ll only be communicating with players if it's necessary when issuing a warning or ban for reported content.

You can also read more about the moderation approach that we will be applying in our Best Practices documentation.

Why now?
For quite a while now, our moderation team has been reviewing and taking appropriate action on many forms of reported community content across Steam, such as screenshots, artwork, guides, user profiles, community groups, and user reviews. In the past, we’ve been hesitant to get involved in the moderation of individual game discussions, as we didn’t want to step on the toes of game developers that want to have their own style of communication with players and their own set of guidelines for behavior.

But over time, we’ve been hearing from more and more game developers that would actually prefer for us to take a more active role in discussion boards, at least to the extent of handling posts that are reported by other players.

Meanwhile, we’ve been expanding the Valve content moderation team to keep up with the increasing number of game communities and the amount of content added to the Steam community. At the beginning of the year, we also added features designed to improve community interactions in the Steam Discussions. You can read more about those additions below: https://steamcommunity.com/groups/steamworks#announcements/detail/1648752205757152068
We are at the point now where we want to make sure we’re putting these tools and human power to use in more ways across the Steam Community.

How can I opt out?
If you do already have your own moderation staff, or want complete control over the reported content in your hub, you can opt out of this service by visiting the Steamworks settings for your game (Edit Steamworks Settings > Community Tab > General).
