Forum Diplomat Guidelines

Recommended Posts

Forum Diplomats

As a Forum Diplomat, your main objective is to moderate the forums so that we can maintain a safe, friendly, and productive community. You are tasked with removing harmful content, defusing arguments, and ensuring the forum rules are followed.

 

 

Expectations

As a forum diplomat, you are expected to be well versed in the Forum Rules. You are expected to enforce them.

You are expected to maintain professionalism, activity, and maturity on the forums at all times.

You are expected to use the forums moderation tools in order to ensure a safe environment.

 

 

Chatbox Moderation

The "Pencil" Icon on the left is used to edit messages. You are only to use this when editing your own chatbox messages, you are not to edit anybody else's message.

The "Subtraction" icon on the right is used to delete messages. Only delete messages from the shoutbox when a user is spamming (3+ messages) or when a user is posting links or inappropriate content.

 

Topic/Thread/Comment Moderation

As a Forum Diplomat, you are only allowed to use the 3 actions that are boxed in red. 

Hide - Hiding a post conceals it from being seen from regular users browsing the forums. You should only hide posts that violate forum rules, and always give a reason when hiding a post. Failure to provide a valid reason will result in a strike.

Move - Moving a post is self-explanatory. You are only allowed to move posts when the person that made the post requests it to be moved. Moving any other post requires a Head Diplomat's+ approval.

Delete - You are only to delete posts with approval from Head Diplomat+

 

General Guidelines

As a Forum Diplomat, you mostly just need common sense. If something is obviously not supposed to be on the forums, then be sure to moderate it appropriately. As long as you follow the forum rules and maintain activity, you will be fine. Do not target individual users based on bias, and just do your job! Also, Forum Warnings are only to be given out by Head Admin+, so please do not use that functionality.

 

Being a forum diplomat is a privilege, and can be taken away at any time if you are deemed unfit for the position. If you have any questions, be free to contact me. 

(These guidelines are a WIP)

Read and understood. Can we have clarification on who else besides the Head Forum Diplomat can give us permission to delete/move posts?

Pretty much any SMT

To my understandings
