All of this information can be changed later through the "Edit Series" button on your series page. When you are done editing, click "Create Series".
How do I add a question / idea / suggestion to a series?
You can either submit a question or vote on a question that's already been asked; all you need is a Google Account to sign in. At the bottom of the topic page, just click the Suggest a question button.
How do I vote to get an existing question asked?
If you see a question that's been submitted, you can vote to recommend that it's asked. To do so, simply click the checkmark button. You can also click the X button if you'd like to vote against an existing question. When you mouse over the bars, you'll see the number of votes that have already been submitted.
In addition to voting in favor of or against a question, if you own a series you'll also be able to post comments on questions. Just click <strong>Post a response</strong> and you can share your thoughts on the question with other participants.
How are most popular submissions ranked?
Moderator ranks questions based on a simple statistical algorithm, with the goal of discovering the most popular questions. That algorithm is the ratio of positive votes to total votes for a submission, which is scaled by the total number of votes for the submission.
The "Share" button allows you to copy a direct URL link to your idea, or share your idea directly through Gmail, Facebook, and Twitter. To use any of these services, you will need to sign-in to them and allow Google Moderator to access them. You can do this for any idea in a Moderator series.
