As a channel moderator you must obey the rules laid out on 'help ooc-chat'. You must always provide chatlog evidence and justification for any warnings or blocks that you enact. Failure to do so will result in loss of your moderator status.
As a moderator you are not required to state you are a moderator on any OOC channel. You can remain anonymous if you so choose. If you choose to announce that your are a moderator, you do so at your own risk. We recommend staying anonymous to avoid any OOC issues or backlash.
There are three commands available to you to aide you in your duties as a moderator.
Typing '@warnings' will show you the list of warnings as well as their messaging. The messages shown are the exact messages sent to any player you send a warning to.
Usage: @warn on
Channel can be either 'ooc' or 'game' for OOC-Chat and Game-Help respectively.
The command will take you through a series of prompts that will let you send someone an anonymous warning.
If you have repeatedly warned someone about a specific behavior, or someone is being incredibly toxic or shitty or violating rules about sharing IC information and you feel that they definitely need to be blocked, temporarily, until they can cool down, or to send a message that their behavior is unacceptable, or until you can get ahold of an admin to enact a more perm. block from the channel, this is the command to use.
It will take you through a series of prompts that will let you block them from all OOC channels (including free-chat).
This is a command of last resort, after you have attempted via @warn to alert the person that their behavior is unacceptable.
You MUST provide evidence as part of @block.
The only acceptable time to skip adding evidence is if the time it would take to copy and paste what needs to be copy and pasted would allow great harm to come to another, or to the game. Revealing IC info and not stopping, or spouting hate speech.
If you must skip the evidence, after you have initiated the block, please use the command AGAIN, and this time, add evidence.
If you need to escalate an issue to the admin, please do so via xhelp. If you have a question on if you should @warn or @block, please xhelp. *Last Updated: 12/30/19 by Fengshui*
