Google's new Google Moderator platform allows YouTube users to poll their audience and solicit submissions for questions to answer or new video ideas. It adds a new level of control over comments that might help make YouTube's generally substandard comments readable.
Moderator gives you control over the topic, length of submissions, and the type of submissions you want (Questions? Votes? Something else?), and then gives you the ability to remove submissions as they come in. Your audience can vote the submissions up or down, and then you can respond to the top-voted submissions. It's the same system YouTube used when users interviewed President Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
What do you think? Will Moderator save discourse on YouTube, or is it too little, too late?
