When I come to the moderation tab I see a lot of posts, looks like there is a new post every 3~5 minutes, which is great but it's a little daunting. I think ideally I would want to be able to filter by tag to get a smaller list which I would feel comfortable having a look through.

Also it might be worth adding other filters like first time posters etc.

This is a good point!

What's interesting is that if you are a tag mod, the tag for which you are a mod gets added to your sidebar so that you can filter for that tag.

So, I know these filters exist in some form! I can see us potentially extending at least some tags (or other stipulations) that would be helpful to have all mods review — like first time posters as you mentioned!

@link2twenty Me too!

I encounter a lot of other tables in the Admin Portal that I wish were sortable. I've had a feature request for these brewing at the back of my mind for a while, but I'm still trying to wrap my head around a possible one-size-fits-all solution, which requires I somewhat nail down the key features I'd like to see across all of them!

Your contribution here supports the need for this in my head, so thank you for sharing!

I'd love to hear from any other mods or admins who have a take on this so we can dream up our ideal solution together!
