I am looking into solutions for a project I am starting. Askbot seems to be a great foundation, but one feature that seems to be missing is pre-moderation. Is there an option to require moderators to pre-approve posts before they are shown on the website?

If not, do you have any recommendations for me how to build in this feature? I am thinking of just adding a boolean field to the relevant models such as is_approved which defaults to False and then allow moderators to set it to True and having all the views filtering on is_approved=True. Any advice whether this sounds feasible or things I should be aware of?

You probably referring to the hosting. After the update of the software sites will support pre-moderation, however for paying customers that upgrade will be made upon request before the general upgrade.

I was referring to the open source code hosted on If I understand you correctly, pre-moderation is not included there, but you could make it available to paying customers? I noticed for example, that pre-moderation is used on the version running here, as my post needed to be pre-approved.

Premoderation is included in the Open Source code. Once you approve the user, their posts no longer need moderation, alternatively you can just approve individual posts.
