Forum Moderators are wiki users who keep watch over the forums by making sure topics are posted in the correct forum, removing inappropriate threads, editing out image violations, helping users by answering questions, and various other tasks. Users must be nominated into their position by an active forum moderator, forum frequent patroller or admin. Forum moderators are given rollback user-rights, which will allow them to edit other users comments.

Duties

  • Keep watch over the forums by deleting inappropriate topics and posts.
  • Editing out policy violations (image uploads, pyramid quotes) from user topics and posts.
  • Moving threads to the correct forum.
  • Tagging threads with a correct topic.
  • Reporting vandalism to the notice board or notifying an admin on the IRC or on their talk page. In the event that an admin is unable to block a vandal, place {{warning}} on the vandal's talk page. This may discourage further vandalism.
  • Maintain an overall mature and friendly demeanor when interacting with other users.
  • Practice diplomacy when users make mistakes.
  • Pointing new users to policies and guidelines when necessary.

Maintaining moderator status

  • Forum moderators who have not participated on the forums in exactly 30 days are considered inactive, and will no longer be displayed on our staff list unless they can prove the have made a steady return.
  • Moderators who have gone "rogue" and turned into obvious vandals will have their moderator status removed automatically. They can petition to have it returned on the consensus track forum.
  • Moderators who are inactive will lose their moderator rights. To request that a user be relieved of their moderator status due to abuse, please petition on the consensus track forum. Additionally, a moderator can request to resign their moderator right if they wish.
