Currently, it's not possible for us to let certain users bypass the Moderation criteria but it's definitely something that I'll pass on as feedback and I believe it can be a useful functionality for other community members too. We will keep you posted here in the community as and when there's an update available on this topic.
Thank you so much for sharing this!

Yes, there is a workaround.
In the moderation app setting, you can add a large number for the "minimum account age" or "minimum reputation". This way, as no account is old enough or no user has enough reputation point to skip moderation, posts from all your members will be sent for the moderator's approval.
You can learn more here8.
Users do not receive a notification if you reject their posts in the moderation panel, reject their request to join a group, or delete/archive their posts from/in the community.
This is not an intuitive user experience. Take Instagram and Facebook as an example. If you reject someone's friend request, the user does not receive a notification for the rejection.
However, in case you want to reject a content from the moderation panel, you can leave a comment under the posts, give it a few minutes, then remove the post from the community. This way, although the post has been removed, the user still receives a notification for your comment, explaining the reason for the post being removed.
