The following link may be helpful to you re moderating and improving the Find Living Relatives board and, perhaps, the general FAQs and guidelines of this site.

I spotted it on the One Show FB page and found the instructions extremely clear and easy to read. It also appears that the postings are well monitored.

An acknowledgement that you are reading this Suggestions board would be appreciated. Thank you.

As someone who uses the BBC boards quite often I know that there are many posters there who would disagree with the term "well monitored". That aside, the BBC boards have limited opening hours (9am to 11pm on weekdays), I don't think that would be very popular here. However they do tell you when they remove your posts.
