    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.

    Room limit:
    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.
      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.

    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.

  • @DhaSickest @Jesssssss welcome to the moderation team you both!
    I am pretty sure you both will do great work, but there are a few things which will make you even more efficient.

      Dont make up your own rules and just follow the outlined ones. There are some rules which are highly situational, like; 2, 11 and 12. So use your own discretion, or whenever you can, try to consult with your counterpart before taking a major step.
      An example can be; if 2 people are having a conversation about nazism, where one person in a civil manner is giving his point and the other is countering it. Then dont just ban the people or delete their messages, because their ideas weren't in line with some of the rules.
      But on the contrary. If the person starts on larping about killing the Jews without any constructive thing to add onto, and other people are complaining about it as well.
      The key is to never forget, you are here to MODERATE the chat not just, ban or remove messages. You're here to prevent mess from happening, not just cleaning it afterwards.
    2. Dont mess with people using your powers if they dont like it. But if they're your friends, then go ahead make their lives hell 😛

    And the most important point:
    You're a user first and a moderator second. Its okay to have fun.

    @Jesssssss @DhaSickest
    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?
