STAFF INFORMATION

  • A full reason is required for each kick. Moderators always need to include a reason when banning. The only exception is when you are banning raid bots.
  • If a raid is occurring, use the /p protect mode. If that fails, use the /pr mode. Do not use protect if a user is unbanning themselves.
  • Include rule violation information in kick reasons so that users can correct their behavior. Do not just give a directive and hope they understand their wrongdoing.
  • A ban should not be issued if a user leaves the chat but would normally get kicked for the committed offense.
  • Users are allowed to test smiley combinations at a minimal level as long as it does not disrupt the chat.
  • Unprofessional conduct at other chats may put you at risk for getting demoted at Chat. This is handled on a case-by-case basis.
  • You must be active in order to maintain your position. Activity is measured by being online frequently along with events.
  • Consult a user of equal or higher rank when deciding to demote someone. In cases of clear abuse, you can demote immediately.
  • Do not ban for long periods of time for measly reasons. A day-long ban may not necessarily be fair for all rule violations. Think carefully about what is fair and appropriate.
  • Do not kick banned users unless they are rapidly clicking you.
  • Moderators are required to give proof for violations that occur in the moderator’s private chat.
