We've been helping a friend with a site that was recently acquired. It's a games site / arcade doing about 15k uniques a day with a forum that needs to be improved.

The problem is that most of the forum posters don't appear to be experienced forum users, and seem like they may be about 8-14 years olds making short silly posts that don't help readers a lot.

What's the best way to moderate a forum with young/experienced users?

Thanks in advance for all feedback.
