DavidV Posted August 19, 2010 Report Share Posted August 19, 2010 (edited) (I am making this public so non-moderators know what to expect.) I want to outline some rules for chat moderators. (I expect this of forum moderators too.) 1.) Your position of authority comes with responsibilities. When you are acting in your capacity as moderator, you must take those responsibilities seriously. 2.) You may joke, express emotions, curse and even insult (to a degree) when you are not acting as a moderator. In your capacity as moderator, you may not do any of these things. 3.) You must provide reasons for your actions, citing specific examples for all moderation activity. 4.) I would like to be able to prohibit moderators from acting against users they have a personal disagreement with, but that is not practical for chat. Chronic (persistent) cases however, should be taken to the moderator forum or given to another moderator. To concretize the correct attitude, just imagine that you are a judge in a court room. That's the kind of professionalism you should exert as a moderator. I hope this post is sufficient explanation.
