Card Desk is a tool for managing Cards. When a card is submitted to a Community it is reviewed by the team of Editors in Desk. The Editors make sure there is no inappropriate content (spam, irrelevant, violent, sexual), and vote to accept or reject the card. The authors ID is hidden to make sure there is no bias. Check up on our content policy for more information.
