Fastlane (Trusted Users)

If you get a message from CivilBot that looks like this:

then congratulations--you've earned Fastlane privilege! 

We wanted to reward commenters who consistently contribute positive, thoughtful comments to their publications.  That's why we created this feature.  With Fastlane, your comments will bypass the normal review process, and be published automatically.

In addition, you don't have to review other comments before submitting your own for publication--since you're probably a frequent commenter, we want to make it easier for you to get your thoughts out there without stopping to review every time you want to post a comment.  

That being said, because we trust you, you're probably just the kind of person we do want voting on comments--so we hope you'll take advantage of the opt-in review option.  This allows you to review 5 comments at any time, so you can do it when its most convenient for you!  Simply click on the button that looks like this to do so: 

The Fastlane feature is still pretty new, so we'd love to hear your feedback! You can give us your questions or comments using the contact form below.
