PostSubject: Chat Moderation   Thu Jan 20, 2011 8:11 pm

I made this thread for EuroSpore, but it may help people here as well.

Chat Moderation

In here is a guide to what tools you have for moderating the chat (if you are a chat moderator obviously). I will also outline some of the reason for using these tools.

/clear OR /cls

By typing either of these you will clear the chat history and effectively empty the chatbox. it will always tell everyone whom has cleared the chat, so be aware of this.

-Clearing the chat is necessary when the chatbox becomes laggy (bare in mind it may become laggy to others, but not to you, so please take heed of those in the chatbox without these powers).

-It is also advisable to clear the chat if a picture or two is posted that are TOO BIG for the chatbox.

-Clearing is also useful when lots of pics that are small have also been posted, this will help prevent lag in future.

-Repeated swearing or foul language may want to be cleared (see banning and kicking). It is also a good tool for when a discussion gets argumenttative or offensive (again see banning/kicking)

NB: Any censored words within the forum are not censored in the ChatBox.

/kick username

By typing /kick Hutch you would kick Hutch out of the chat (try this all you want, it will not work). The user you kick out can immediately come back into the chat though.

-You may kick a user if they repeatedly swear and ignore (or forget) that this is not allowed.

-You may kick users who are being aggressive or argumentative if they refuse to heed your warnings.

-You may kick a user repeatedly trying to use mod tools when they haven't the ability (this is technically impersonation), but only if they ignore warnings.

NB: You cannot use this tool to kick people just because you do not like them or just because you are bored. Some of you may also be able to kick yourselves out of the chat, although this may also be fun, please refrain from doing this too much.

/ban username AND /unban username

By typing /ban Hutch you will ban Hutch and by typing /unban Hutch, you will unban Hutch. You cannot ban or unban any user with @ before their name in the chatbox. Bans are very much to be used after you have kicked someone form a chat twice, but they still persist with the behaviour.

If you feel a user deserves a ban, please do so. However, please can you inform an admin of the ban with reasons so that we can determine lengths of bans? In the case of a ban for the users own good (ie the user is drunk and is behaving irrationally), you need not inform anyone of this decision, as long as you remember to unban the user when you feel they have been denied access long enough to calm down or sober up.

/banlist

This will give you a popup showing what users are currently banned from the chat.

Other Commands

/me message: Anything you type after /me appears to have been said in the third person.
/abs OR /away message: Although you do not have to type a message, this will set your status to away and the message will give the reason.

I can see this is copied from EuroSpore.

I guess I better stop kicking myself out of the chat all the time emmbarrased!

These are some very good rules. I remember one time I had to ban Wildcard because a spammer was taking advantage of it to spam the chat, but I unbanned it soon afterward.

Also, I've never heard of the banlist command. Is that new, or was I just never informed?

It has always been there Gela, it is very useful to those are not admins on the forum but have chat mod powers because the banlist is only available in the admin panel otherwise.

I shall go through it and modify it for GAC at some point, most of the references are EuroSpore.

I think that since we have this thread, we no longer need these:

http://alac.freeforumshosting.net/t54-the-moderator-s-rules

Oh, and my nickname is Gelo, not Gela, for future reference.
