51 Understanding Space Basics

WebCenter Portal: Spaces supports the formation and collaboration of project teams and communities of interest through spaces. A space provides a dedicated and readily accessible area for relevant services, pages, and content and supports the inclusion of specified members, each of whom have defined roles associated with permissions in the space. Spaces bring people together in a virtual environment for ongoing interaction and information sharing—in essence, spaces enable the formation and support of social networks.

This chapter provides information about working with spaces. It contains the following sections:

Audience

This chapter is intended for Spaces users who want to learn more about working with spaces in a Spaces application.

51.1 What You Should Know About Spaces

Within any company, large groups or departments frequently must break into smaller groups to focus on a particular goal, project, or even topic. Or, outside of a professional environment, communities of people with a common interest may wish to share and post information to foster the community. To help these groups organize themselves, Spaces provides the notion of spaces, which bring content together through a single access point, accessible through the Spaces application or by direct URL, to help groups of people share information and interact in a collaborative social network. For example:

Many features and tools to facilitate teamwork are built into the space framework, instantly allowing space members to share documents, discuss issues, schedule meetings, exchange messages, create lists, and much more. Spaces can be monitored through RSS feeds, which you can add to your personalized view of the Home space or view in any external RSS reader.

Spaces provides templates for creating spaces that support different types of endeavors. The flexibility of space templates means that every space can have a different look and feel. You can use an out-of-the-box template, or create your own custom templates using an existing space as the basis for the template. For information about space templates, see Chapter 52, "Working with Space Templates." After creation, Spaces can be completely customized, including the navigation controls, the color scheme, and the look and feel of any task flow or portlet, all from within the browser.

When you create a space, you are the space moderator. As the moderator, you manage the space and establish the rules for membership to a space (see Section 54.1, "Setting Up the Membership Policy for a Space"). When a new space is created, Spaces creates default space roles with default permissions. The space moderator can assign space members to these roles and modify the default permissions as required, or create new custom roles (see Section 54.2, "Managing Roles and Permissions for a Space" and Section 54.3, "Managing Members and Assigning Roles").

Any space can be parent to one or more subspaces. This allows you to develop a space hierarchy. For more information, see Chapter 56, "Working with a Space Hierarchy."

51.2 What Does a Space Look Like?

A newly created space may look similar to Figure 51-1 (side navigation) or Figure 51-1 (top tabbed navigation). It is important to realize, however, that your Spaces administrator or the space moderator has most likely created and applied a custom page template to expose or hide tabs, features, and display a unique look and feel for your organization. A new space that you create may look nothing like these examples.

Figure 51-1 Home Page of a New Space Using the Default Side Navigation Page Template

New Space Using Side Navigation Page Template

Figure 51-2 Home Page of a New Space Using the Default Top Navigation Page Template

New Space Using Top Navigation Page Template

Each page in a space provides access to related information. In the example space above, the Home page summarizes important information about the Philatelists club, the Documents page lists folders and files associated with the Philatelists club, the Discussions page provides a view of ongoing discussions with discussion forum management features, and so on. The space moderator (or any space member assigned the Moderator role or a custom role that includes the Spaces-Manage Configuration permission) uses the pages available through the space administration settings to build and manage the space, expanding and customizing it as needs change and grow. For information about administration tasks in a space, see Chapter 52, "Working with Space Templates," Chapter 53, "Managing a Space," Chapter 54, "Managing Space Members and Roles." For information about administering all spaces and space templates as the Spaces application administrator, see Chapter 55, "Administering Spaces and Templates."

51.3 Interacting with Spaces Before Logging In (Public User)

Public spaces are available to anyone with Internet access, without logging in to Spaces, allowing a space to be shared with non-members and people outside of the Spaces community.

Public users who are not registered Spaces users can access public spaces in two ways:

The Spaces administrator controls what a public user can see or do at the application level. For more information, see Section 24.2.4, "Granting Permissions to the Public-User Role."

When a space is made public, the Public-User role in the space is automatically granted View Pages and Content permission in the space, which allows public users to view pages, lists, events, links and notes. To view announcements, discussions, and documents, the space moderator must explicitly grant these permissions, as described in Section 53.14.5, "Granting Public Access to a Space." The public permissions granted by the space moderator override the public permissions set by the administrator at the application level.

51.4 Viewing and Accessing Available Spaces

You can participate in multiple spaces and manage your space memberships on the Spaces page.

To view and access the spaces that are available to you:

  1. Open the Spaces page (Figure 51-4) in either of the following ways:

    • In the Home space, click the Spaces tab.

    • From the Spaces menu, select Browse Spaces.

    Tip:

    You can also access the Home space using a pretty URL. See Appendix A, "User Interface URLs for Home Space Pages."

    Figure 51-4 Spaces Page in the Home Space

    Spaces Page in the Home Space
  2. On the Spaces page, from the Show list, select:

    • All Spaces (Figure 51-5) to show all spaces that are available to you, both public and private. Spaces defined as hidden when created are not shown.

      Figure 51-5 Showing All Spaces

      Show All Spaces
      Description of "Figure 51-5 Showing All Spaces"

    • Joined by Me to display spaces of which you are a member.

    • Moderated by Me to display spaces for which you have moderator privileges.

    • Closed Spaces to display spaces available to you that have been closed by the space moderator (see Section 53.4.5, "Closing or Reactivating a Space"). The content of a closed space remains accessible and searchable to those who still want to reference it and space members can continue working in the space either by selecting Closed Spaces as described here, or by direct URL (http://host:port/webcenter/spaces/space name).

  3. To list one or more specific spaces, enter a full or partial search term in the Filter field, then click the Filter icon to refresh the list with all spaces for which a match is found in the Display Name, Description, or Search Keywords (specified on the General page in the administration settings for the space).

  4. To clear the current search string and display all spaces, click the Clear Filter icon.

  5. To refresh the list of spaces, first ensure that any prior search is cleared (click the Clear Filter icon), then click the Refresh icon.

  6. To go to the Home page of a space, click the space name or icon.

  7. To display a menu of actions available on the space, right-click a space icon or name to explore the actions that are available to you, depending on your permissions in the space (Figure 51-6):

    Figure 51-6 Space Actions Menu

    Space Actions Menu

    Note:

    Space administration selections (Manage Settings, Rename Space URL, and Delete the Space) are shown only if you are the space moderator or have Manage Configuration permission in the space.

    Select the available actions, depending on your permissions in the space:

51.5 Sending Mail to Space Members or Moderators

You can send mail to the members or the moderators of a space using the default mail distribution list for the space, or a custom distribution list. For more information, see Section 53.10.2, "Configuring the Mail Distribution List for a Space."

Note:

To use the task pane available through the Microsoft Office shared document management functionality (while editing a Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint file in a space) to send mail to members of a space, see Section 48.3.3.13, "Sending a Message."

To send mail to space members or moderators:

  1. On the Spaces page (see Section 51.4, "Viewing and Accessing Available Spaces"), locate the space to which the members or moderators belong, then right-click the space icon or name, and select Contact, then Send Mail to Members or Send Mail to Moderators (Figure 51-7).

    Figure 51-7 Space Actions Menu Selection: Send Mail

    Space Actions Menu Selection: Send Mail

    Your mail application opens, where you can compose and send mail to all members or moderators of the space.

51.6 Viewing Information About a Space

To view information about a space:

  1. On the Spaces page (see Section 51.4, "Viewing and Accessing Available Spaces"), locate the space that you want to learn about, then right-click the space icon or name, and select About, then About this Space (Figure 51-8).

    Figure 51-8 Space Actions Menu: About this Space (for non-moderator role)

    Figure 51-9 About Space Dialog (for non-member)

    About Space Dialog
  2. Explore the information in the About Space dialog:

    • Name: Internal name of the space displayed in the space URL. To change the internal space name, see Section 53.14.2, "Changing a Space URL." Caution: When you change the internal space name, bookmarks to the space must be updated as they will no longer work.

    • Display Name: Display name of the space. This name displays at the top of the space and other places where spaces are available for selection, such as the Spaces Switcher menu and the Spaces page. To change the space display name, see Section 53.4.1, "Renaming a Space." Changing the display name does not impact the URL that people use to navigate to the space.

    • Internal ID: ID of the space, which other applications may use to reference this space.

    • Description: A description of the space, specified when creating the space or in the space administration settings, as described in Section 53.4.2, "Modifying the Description or Keywords for a Space."

    • Membership: Your role in the space. If you are not a member of this space and the space allows self-service membership, a Join Space button displays here. See Section 51.9.1, "Joining a Space (Registered Spaces User)."

    • Created By: User name of the space creator.

    • Date Created: Date and time that the space was created.

    • Explorer URL: URL used expose the folders and files in a space using Windows Explorer. See Section 48.4.1, "Adding a Space as a Network Place."

    • Direct URL: URL that provides direct access to the space.

51.7 Viewing Spaces Similar to the Current Space

A space is considered similar to another space if the same people perform similar actions in it, especially if they edit the content. Similar Spaces is provided by the Activity Graph service. For more information, see Section 60.2.3, "Working with the Similar Spaces Task Flow."

To view a list of spaces similar to the current space:

  1. On the Spaces page (see Section 51.4, "Viewing and Accessing Available Spaces"), locate the space for which you want to see similar spaces, then right-click the space icon or name, and select About, then Similar Spaces (Figure 51-10).

    Figure 51-10 Space Actions Menu: Similar Spaces (for non-moderator role)

    Space Actions Menu: Similar Spaces (for non-moderator role)

    The Similar Spaces dialog opens.

  2. Select a space to open, or click the Display Options (pencil) icon (Figure 51-11) to modify the criteria similar spaces.

    Figure 51-11 Similar Spaces Display Options Dialog

    The Spaces page displays spaces where the search string is found in the Name or Description.

  3. To clear the current search string and display all spaces, click the Clear Filter icon (Figure 51-12).

    Figure 51-13 Clear Filter Icon

    Clear Filter Icon

51.9 Joining a Space

To become a member of a space, you can join the space. You may be registered with Spaces, or you may be a public user. If a space allows self-service membership (see Section 54.1.1, "Managing Self-Service Membership for a Space"), you can request membership to the space. Or, you may receive an invitation to join a space.

This section includes the following subsections:

51.9.1 Joining a Space (Registered Spaces User)

To become a member of a space, you can join the space. If a space is configured to allow self-service membership, you can request membership to the space. Or, you may receive an invitation to join a space.

Some membership requests require approval from the space moderator so you may not gain access immediately. You will receive a Worklist notification when your membership is approved.

To join a space:

  1. On the Spaces page (see Section 51.4, "Viewing and Accessing Available Spaces"), from the Show menu, select All Spaces.

  2. To join a space, you may have several options available to you, depending on the page template in use. For example, you may be able to simply click a space to open the Request Membership dialog.

    A generally available method to join a space is through the About Space dialog: right-click the space icon or name, and select About, then About this Space (Figure 51-14).

    Figure 51-14 Space Actions Menu: About this Space (for non-moderator role)

    Space Actions Menu: About this Space
  3. In the About Space dialog, next to Membership, click Join Space (Figure 51-15).

    Figure 51-15 About Space Dialog (for non-member)

    Group Space Information Dialog Box

    Note:

    Join Space is active only if the space allows self-service membership (see Section 54.1.1, "Managing Self-Service Membership for a Space"). If Join Space is disabled, contact the space moderator directly to request membership.

    A space membership request page similar to Figure 51-16 opens, showing the default Request Membership page. Because the space moderator may customize this page, the page and roles you see may be different to the example shown here.

    Figure 51-16 Requesting Space Membership

    Requesting Space Membership
    Description of "Figure 51-16 Requesting Space Membership"

  4. Select the type of Role you want to play in this space.

    Note:

    Out-of-the-box space roles include Viewer, Participant, and Moderator, but a subset of these or other custom roles names may display, depending on what roles the space moderator has defined for the space.

  5. (Optional) In the Purpose field, enter an explanation of why you need access to the space with the role you have requested.

  6. Click Request Membership.

    You should see a confirmation message similar to Figure 51-17, depending on whether or not the selected role requires moderator approval.

    Figure 51-17 Confirmation Message (No Approval Required)

    Confirmation Message (No Approval Required)
  7. Click OK.

  8. On the Spaces page, click the Refresh icon to confirm your new membership status.

    Note:

    If membership requests require approval, you do not gain access immediately. Check back later or monitor your Worklist—you will receive notification as soon as your membership is approved.

51.9.2 Joining a Space (Unregistered Spaces User)

If you are not a registered Spaces user, you can still view public Spaces, but you cannot join a space unless you receive a mail message from the space moderator inviting you to join a space (see Section 54.3.4.5, "Inviting a Non-Registered User"). If you want to join a space, you must become a registered Spaces user.

Some membership requests require approval from the space moderator so you may not gain access immediately. You will receive a Worklist notification when your membership is approved.

  1. In the mail message you receive inviting you to join a space, click the Register Yourself link included in the invitation mail to open the Self-Registration page, similar to Figure 51-18. Because the space moderator may customize this page, the page you see may be different to the example shown here.

    Note:

    For the Self-Registration page to display, the membership options for the space administration settings must have either of the following enabled:

    • Allow Self-Service Membership or Self-Service Membership Change (All Roles Available)

    • Allow Self-Service Membership or Self-Service Membership Change (Selected Roles Available)

    For more information, see Section 54.1.1, "Managing Self-Service Membership for a Space."

    Figure 51-18 Registering with Spaces

    Self-Registration page
  2. Enter a suitable User Name. The user name restrictions depend on the underlying identity store that is configured with Spaces.

    Click Check User Name Available to determine whether a Spaces user is registered with that name. Click OK to dismiss the confirmation message and, if necessary, enter a different name.

  3. Enter a suitable Password, and then Re-enter Password for verification. The password restrictions depend on the underlying identity store that is configured with Spaces.

  4. Enter your First Name and Last Name, and an Email Address.

  5. Click Register.

Once your User Name and Password are registered with Spaces, the space to which you were invited opens.

51.10 Searching in a Space

Spaces includes the Search field at the top of the application for global (application-wide) searches. To perform searches limited to a single space, the space moderator must create a new Resource Catalog, add the Search task flow from the library to the Catalog, and then assign this Catalog to the space. The Search task flow is not available in the default Resource Catalog. For more information, see Section 58.4, "Narrowing the Scope of Search."

The space moderator can perform searches for individual pages in a space, as described in Section 53.7.3, "Searching for Pages in a Space."

51.11 Working with Pages in a Space

As a space member, you will have access to pages in the space. The space moderator can grant you permissions to view, create, edit, and rename pages in the space. Other space members can grant you permissions to access the pages that they own. Pages that you create are for your own use only, unless you specifically share them with other users.

Working with personal pages in the Home space is no different than working with pages in any space. The tasks described in this section apply to pages in a space and personal pages in the Home space:

51.11.1 Showing or Hiding Pages in Your View

The space moderator defines which pages are shown and hidden to all space members, as described in Section 53.7.2, "Showing or Hiding Pages in a Space." Additionally, you can customize your own personal view of pages.

To show or hide pages in your personal view of a space:

  1. On the Spaces page (see Section 51.4, "Viewing and Accessing Available Spaces"), locate and open the space.

  2. Open the Personalize Pages page.

    Tip:

    The way you access this page depends on the page template in use. For example, you may access it through an Actions Actions menu.

  3. On the Personalize Pages page, select or deselect the Show Page check box for the pages you want to show or hide.

Note:

If you deselect the Show Page check box for the current page, the Personalize Pages page closes and the current page is hidden.

Within a particular scope, such as a space or the Home space, one page must always be shown; therefore, you cannot use this method to hide all pages within a particular scope.

51.11.2 Rearranging Page Order in Your View

In a space, you can use the Personalize Pages page to change the order in which pages are listed or arranged. This is a user customization that affects only your view.

To rearrange page order in a space:

  1. On the Spaces page (see Section 51.4, "Viewing and Accessing Available Spaces"), locate and open the space.

  2. Open the Personalize Pages page.

    Tip:

    The way you access this page depends on the page template in use. For example, you may access it through an Actions Actions icon menu.

  3. Use the icons in the Reorder column to rearrange page order (Figure 51-19).

    Note:

    You can also reorder pages by dragging and dropping the page names

    Figure 51-19 Reorder Icons on the Personalize Pages Page

    Reorder icon on the Personalize Pages page
    Description of "Figure 51-19 Reorder Icons on the Personalize Pages Page"

51.11.3 Opening a Page

In a space, members have access to system pages (see Table 7-2, "Seeded System Pages") and member-created pages. The content on a space page is typically targeted to a particular audience or objective. In the Home space, you have access to pages made available by other users, and to your own personal pages.

The way that you access the pages of a space depends on the page template that is defined for the space, the controls that the space moderator or Spaces administrator has made available, and the navigation model in use. In all configurations, however, you can open pages using a pretty URL or through the Personalize Pages page.

To open a page in a space:

  1. On the Spaces page (see Section 51.4, "Viewing and Accessing Available Spaces"), locate and open the space.

  2. Open a page in any of the following ways:

    • Click the page name in the space navigation.

    • Enter the following URL in your browser:

      http://host:port/webcenter/spaces/spaceName/page/pageName
      

      For the Home space, omit spaceName

      Tip:

      Substitute any spaces in the page name with plus (+) characters. For example, to open a page named My Page, the URL to this page ends with My+Page.

      See Also:

      For additional URLs to use in navigating to pages, see Appendix A, "Spaces User Interface URLs."

    • Open the Personalize Pages page, and click the name of the page you want to open (Figure 51-20).

      Tip:

      The way you access this page depends on the page template in use. For example, you may access it through an Actions Actions icon menu.

      Figure 51-20 Opening a Page through the Personalize Pages Page

      Opening a page through Personalize Pages
      Description of "Figure 51-20 Opening a Page through the Personalize Pages Page"

Note:

If you view a page at the same time that another user is editing the page, you may not immediately see the results of changes made by the other user in your session. To reliably see any changes, you must view the page after the other user has saved their edits.

51.11.4 Customizing Your View of a Page

You can change your view of a given page in a space in many ways, including rearranging your view of page content, hiding components, changing your page layout, and so on. All of these options are user customizations, that is, they affect only your view. All other space members' views remain unchanged.

This section steps you through the process of adjusting your own page view through user customization. It includes the following subsections:

51.11.4.1 What You Should Know About User Customizations on a Page

You can customize the way pages appear in many ways without opening the page editor (Composer). For example, you can reposition, remove, resize, and collapse components, all within just your view of a page.

User customizations are yours and yours alone. That is, the changes you make through the procedures described in the following sections affect only your view of the Spaces application. No other users are affected by your changes.

For example, when you reposition page components in page view mode, that change applies only to your view of the page. Other users may reorganize their own views of pages, and their changes do not affect your view—only their own.

Note:

When you revise a component in page view mode while another user deletes the same component in page edit mode, a WebCenter error page opens. Simply navigate back to the original page. The deleted component does not appear, and you can continue working on other components.

51.11.4.2 Performing User Customizations on Your Page View

Whether you can customize a page depends on permissions granted to you or your application role and on how user customizations are configured. You can tell if you have such permission by the presence or absence of the controls discussed in this section. If you do not see these controls, contact your application administrator to ask for a higher-level of access or for a configuration change.

This section describes how to perform the user customizations rearrange, resize, minimize, and maximize. It includes the following subsections:

51.11.4.2.1 Rearranging Page Content

Use drag-and-drop to rearrange the position of a component on a page. Components moved by drag-and-drop can be moved into any open position on a page.

To rearrange components by dragging and dropping on a page:

51.11.4.2.2 Removing Components from Your View of a Page

If you find that a component, such as a task flow or portlet, is not useful to you and the component displays a Remove icon, you can remove it from your view of the page.

Keep in mind that you can restore a removed component only by editing the page and adding a new component instance.

To remove a component from your view of a page:

51.11.4.2.3 Resizing Components

The border and header surrounding a component is also known as chrome. Chrome can clarify the boundaries of the component and provide an access point for component actions, such as those on the Actions menu and those embedded in the chrome itself. In the latter case, the chrome may include a Resize handle that you can use to increase or decrease the height of the component (Figure 51-23).

Figure 51-23 Resize Handle on a Task Flow

Resize handle on a task flow
Description of "Figure 51-23 Resize Handle on a Task Flow"

Note:

The position of the resize handle differs for bidirectionally displayed components. Those components displayed in a right-to-left orientation display the resize handle on the left side.

To use this feature, click and hold the Resize handle and drag it up to decrease the height of the component or down to increase the height of the component.

51.11.4.2.4 Collapsing and Expanding Components

With one click, you can collapse some components so that they roll up like a window shade, useful for removing the visual noise of an unused component from your application view. Collapse is available when a component shows a header. With another click, you can expand a collapsed component.

To collapse and expand components on a page:

  1. Click the Collapse icon on the component header to roll the component up like a window shade (Figure 51-24).

    Figure 51-24 Collapse/Expand Icon on a Task Flow

    Collapse/Expand icon on a task flow
    Description of "Figure 51-24 Collapse/Expand Icon on a Task Flow"

  2. Click the Expand icon on the component header to restore the full component to view (Figure 51-25).

    Figure 51-25 Collapsed Task Flow

    Collapsed task flow
    Description of "Figure 51-25 Collapsed Task Flow"

51.11.5 Removing All of Your User Customizations from a Page

You can change your view of a given page in a space in many ways, including rearranging your view of page content, hiding components, and changing your page layout, as described in Section 51.11.4, "Customizing Your View of a Page."

To remove all of your user customizations, such as rearrangement, resizing, or collapsing of task flows in only your view of a page:

  1. In the space, display the Personalize Pages page.

    Tip:

    The way you access this page depends on the page template in use. For example, you may access it through an Actions Actions icon menu.

  2. On the Personalize Pages page, click the Actions icon for the page, and select Reset Layout to open the Reset Layout dialog.

  3. To confirm your intent to remove all of your user customization from the page, click Reset.

51.11.6 Creating, Editing, and Managing a Page

To create, edit, populate, share, and manage pages in a space, see Section 16.10.2, "Working with Pages."

51.12 Changing Your Role in a Space

If you are unable to perform all the actions that you would like in your space, you can request a change to your membership role. For example, you might want to participate in an interesting discussion thread or raise a new issue but in your current role you are only allowed to view ongoing discussions.

Role change requests may or may not require approval, depending on how the space moderator has defined membership changes for a particular role (see Section 54.1.1, "Managing Self-Service Membership for a Space"). You will receive a Worklist notification when your new role is approved.

To change your space role:

  1. On the Spaces page (see Section 51.4, "Viewing and Accessing Available Spaces"), locate and open the space in which you want to change your role, then right-click the space icon or name, and select Membership, then Change Role (Figure 51-26).

    Figure 51-26 Change Membership Role

    Change Membership Role
  2. In the Change Membership dialog (Figure 51-27), select your preferred role from the New Role list.

    Note:

    The New Role list is active only if the space allows self-service membership changes (see Section 54.1.1, "Managing Self-Service Membership for a Space"). If New Role selections are disabled, contact the space moderator directly to request a member role change.

    If you wish to cancel your membership in the space, click Cancel Membership.

    Figure 51-27 Change Membership Dialog

    Change Membership Dialog

    The space moderator controls the list of roles displayed here. Out-of-the-box space roles include Viewer, Participant, and Moderator but a subset of these or other custom roles may display. For more information, see Section 54.1.1, "Managing Self-Service Membership for a Space"

  3. Click OK.

    A confirmation message displays whether or not the selected role change requires approval.

  4. Click OK to acknowledge the confirmation message.

  5. On the Spaces page, click the Refresh icon to confirm your membership status has changed for the space.

    Note:

    Your new role is not effective immediately when membership change requests require approval. Check back later or monitor your Worklist; your new role will be effective as soon as the space moderator approves it.

51.13 Cancelling Your Space Membership

When you no longer want or need membership in a space, you can cancel your membership.

Some cancellation requests require approval from the space moderator so you may not be removed from the space immediately (see Section 54.1.1, "Managing Self-Service Membership for a Space"). You will receive a Worklist notification when your membership is removed.

Once you have successfully cancelled your membership in a space, it will no longer be shown on the Spaces page when you select Joined by Me from the Show menu.

To cancel your membership in a space:

  1. On the Spaces page (see Section 51.4, "Viewing and Accessing Available Spaces"), locate and open the space from which you want to remove your membership, then right-click the space icon or name, and select Cancel Membership (Figure 51-26).

    Figure 51-28 Cancelling Space Membership

    Cancelling Space Membership

    A confirmation message displays to confirm that you want to cancel your membership in the space.

  2. Click OK to acknowledge the confirmation message.

  3. On the Spaces page, select Joined by Me from the Show menu, then click the Refresh icon to confirm that the space no longer displays.

    Note:

    If a cancellation request requires approval, you are not removed from the space immediately. Check back later or monitor your Worklist; you will receive notification when your unsubscription request is approved or rejected by the space moderator.
