The Rover Q&A Community is a question and answer site. If you have an area of expertise and feel you can helpfully respond to someone’s question, please submit an answer! Keep in mind, this is not a discussion group. Please avoid holding long debates in your answers; they tend to dilute the essence of the Q&A. For brief discussions, you’re welcome to add comments.
Short answer: you! This website is moderated by the users and overseen by Rover.com. Voting allows all our users to prove their expertise and earn moderation rights.
When a question or answer is upvoted, the user who posted it will gain points, which are called Treats. These points serve as a rough measure of the community trust in that user. Various moderation tasks are gradually assigned to users based on those points.
Looking for more detail? Here's an example. Say you ask an interesting question or leave a helpful answer — your input will be upvoted. On the other hand, if the answer is misleading, it will be downvoted. Each vote in favor will generate 10 points, and each vote against will subtract 0 points. There is a limit of 2000 points that can be accumulated for a question or answer per day. The table below explains reputation point requirements for each type of moderation task.
|20||accept own answer to own questions|
|1000||change tags on other's questions|
|10000||edit any answer|
|10000||delete any comment|
The goal of the Rover Community Q&A is to provide a space where dog lovers can connect with and learn from one another. Questions and answers are edited like wiki pages by experienced users of this site. This improves the overall quality of available answers.
