In Jodel, users can flag every post that they think is against our Guidelines. Each flagged post gets reviewed by a number of moderators and a moderation algorithm calculates the final decision.
Jodel moderators base their decision on the Community Guidelines and the Moderation Guidelines. Moderators decide on blocking or allowing flagged posts, but they cannot not decide on blocking the user.
Our moderation algorithm calculates how many votes are needed to reach a decision. Each moderator is ranked: highly ranked and experienced moderators provide more votes. There is always a minimum sum of votes and a minimum number of moderators needed to decide on any post. Also, if the reporting user is a moderator, his vote will not be counted.
If a post gets blocked, its creator will lose all karma earned by the post and lose an extra 100 karma points. He also gets a notification about this.
All posts blocked by our moderators are forwarded to our admins who – with the help of algorithms – identify and sort out the worst users who will get banned on the spot.
