Guidelines & Rules For Mods at live chat
Hello & Congratulations. If you are reading this, you are a mod of live chat.
Please read these rules and guidelines carefully and try to keep them in mind before taking any action.
Moderators are requested to create friendly relation with each other.
Please note, as moderators, you'll have the following permissions:
- Delete Message
- Ban User
- Remove User
- Ban Words
- Set Room Limit
Please keep in mind that please do not delete any message or ban users without any reason. You have to respect the rules of the site, if we see any problems with moderators or somebody complains about you, we can revoke this position back from you!
Here is a roundup of information you need to know:
You can ban words if:
It contains hate/abusive text such as a racist slur you CANNOT ban words because of it being used in a sexual manner because it get's bypassed e.g f*ck. You MUST talk with your team before banning any words. UPDATE: We can now unban words! Please do not unban any word unless you need to ban a word to stop spam for the moment. Please unban any new words you ban. Then bring it up with the team to see if the word needs a perma ban.
Please maintain Room 1 at 30. You can up the limit as needed to accommodate more users coming in if it reaches 30. Try to not have other rooms over limit 15. Preferably other rooms should stay at limit 1 unless there is a need to shrink Room 1 (see below). The reason for the limit 1 in other rooms is because, when mods are not around, users often use the extra room to “sext”. Use common sense for other room limits. Some users will ask for another room so they can chat with each other and not have the chaos of Room 1.
Shrinking Room 1
If you have a bad user that needs to be removed from Room 1, and can’t be perma banned, you can ban that user and shrink the room if the user is using VPN. Remember if Room 2 is limit 1 it will create a Room 3 so please limit Room 2 to 15 before if it is at 1. We want to create as little rooms as possible but sometimes it is necessary so please limit extra rooms 1.
You can delete the message if:
- It contains spam or adult pictures or hate/abusive text
- if a message has nude or adult pics
Basically, if we can see that picture or message with a kid or in our workplace, then it is good to go.
You can mute users (ONLY BAN THEM AFTER GIVING THEM MULTIPLE WARNINGS):
If they don't stop even after multiple warnings then, you can ban them until they apologize for their behavior and made sure they won't do it again.
Users have freedom of speech with reasonable restriction respect that. The restrictions vary from case to case use your logic to check them. If you have any doubt consult among each other.
You may lose moderation privileges due to misbehaving or inactivity (if no reasonable notification has been given before inactivity)
With that said, enjoy your new privileges, and make TalkWithStranger a happy and active chat site. It is your job to welcome new users and keep old users entertained and prevent bad users. Happy Chatting!
PS. Don't ban users or remove their messages if you have personal feelings, controversy or arguments against another person.

Yea that's what I've said,i think for now we're just going to ask around in live chat since we only need 1 or 2 extra mods rn
Just wanna know tho, if you guys are gonna do an election for livechat moderators here on topics, will livechat users really be the ones who vote for them?
Idk how many livechat peeps cross between there and topics here, but my impression is not that many
So the mods will be elected by users here rather than livechat users, no?
