Google Moderator

Monday, May 18th, 2009 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

In today’s bad economic times we’d all love to save some money, right? How do you save money? If you could ask a world leader anything, what would it be? If you’re a HTC Dream (Android phone) user, what new Android application would you like to see? Google Moderator is a new Google application that was originally intended to ‘moderate’ Google conferences and is now open to the public. Let’s check it out!

So, what is Google Moderator? Basically it’s a site where you can ask questions or suggest ideas and others vote on them. The more votes, the more likely your suggestion will be implemented by the Google Team if it’s Google related and it’s quite interesting to watch what people think.

Surely the biggest ‘series’ (group of questions) on Moderator is the Tip Jar, so I’ll base my examples around this. To get to the Tip Jar, go to (‘appspot’ is a Google domain name just like ‘blogspot’ for the Blogger service). You’ll see the Featured Series – popular series that are active. Click Take a Tip. Share a Tip.


If you have a Google Account, sign in. This will allow you to vote on tips and even write them! At the top of the screen you’ll see a big green box with options to vote inside it. Read the tip. Do you like it? If so, click the tick.


Lower down you’ll see the tips that are currently ‘in the lead’. You can vote on these by clicking the tick or cross next to the graph which shows how much support there is for that tip.


Happy tipping!
