Types of message boards

When you are using the AOL message boards to communicate online with other members, you will see two different types:

  • AOL Managed: These message boards are moderated and bound by both the AOL Community Standards and AOL Conditions of Service. On-topic, civil, and quality discussion is encouraged.
  • Member Managed: These message boards are not moderated or bound by AOL Community Standards. However, AOL's Conditions of Service rules do apply. Members participating in these boards are encouraged to use AOL tools such as Ignore and Notify AOL to keep discussions civil and on-topic.

Note: Each message board has its own Community Standards. To review the Community Standards for a specific board, click the Community Standards link.
