Moderation Information

Back

Hey everyone! Sometimes the line is blurred between what a moderator actually does, and what they should be doing. This page will quickly describe what a moderator is expected to do for the community, and the relationship they have with the playerbase. To begin, let us review the rules of the various WynnCraft communities.



Server Rules

Back
  1. No hacked clients. This includes but is not limited to:
    1. Kill aura
    2. Entity Radar
    3. Fly Hacking
    4. Speed Hacking
  2. No harassment, excessive cursing, insulting, scamming, spamming, or general rudeness to your fellow adventurers.
  3. No abusing bugs or glitches. In fact - you should tell us about them so we can fix them!
  4. No advertising.
  5. No evading your ban in any form.
  6. Player made invasions. (intentionally leading mobs to an AFK player to kill them)

If you need any help what so ever feel free to contact a moderator by tagging us @Moderator or by sending one of us a PM.

These rules are subject to change if change is needed. If you want to report someone for breaking these rules please provide Screenshot evidence and make a report here.



Our Role as Moderators

Back

Wynncraft has become a huge game, with over 1.5 million unique connections! Although the community isn’t as big as that, there are still many people to deal with. The way we maintain order is by enforcing the rules set by the Admins and hand out the punishments for people who break them. But that isn’t all we do. We are not just moderators of the rules, we’re there to make sure everyone has an amazing experience playing Wynncraft, whether you’re just hanging around Detlas or lurking on the forums.

With so many people, there are bound to be arguments or disruptions, and that’s where we step in before things get out of hand. We are to use the power we are delegated by the admins to maintain the peace, but never abuse it for personal gain.

Some mods have roles that are more specific than others. While one moderator may be more active at banning those pesky fly hackers, others may be better at defusing a drama bomb. Not all mods are expected to do each of the duties equally, but we are there to do everything we can.

All in all, we are here to make sure everything stays happy, polite and fun. But we have to follow some guidelines ourselves.



Moderator Rules

Back
  1. Never abuse any commands, power or influence for personal gain, only to uphold the rules.
  2. Act without bias. Mods are community members too, and we have friends, but we will do our best to act objectively, even if one of our pals is in the hot seat.
  3. Do not break the rules of Wynncraft as stated above. We are not above our own rules.
  4. Act maturely, sensibly and maintain a sense of professionalism.

If a moderator is not following this code of conduct please report them to an admin such as Salted, Grian, or the community manager, Pretzule. This report should come with evidence (your word is not enough, I’m afraid) of said moderator breaking the rules. However, if you are seen to be “baiting” a moderator to get them wound up to make them say something offensive, you may find yourself in just as much trouble. Let’s all be friends, No moderator is above the rules.



Having said that...

Back

Moderators are people too, and people make mistakes. While we try to maintain the peace, things can go wrong. Fortunately, as a cohesive team, there have been no situations which we have been unable to overcome. To be able to maintain a good moderating environment, you have to be able to respect other moderators decisions. There really is no use arguing and shouting, if you really want results with our team, you need to speak calmly and cohesively to produce a logical response to your issue.

Moderators are also players. They don't have to moderate 24/7, they are allowed to actually play the game too sometimes! Though, moderators will be asked to relieve their duties when inactive for a substantial amount of time. Final decision for this comes from the admins.



How we Select Moderators

Back

How we select moderators has been a long standing question amongst the community, as the role of moderator is seen as an honour. However, the process of how a moderator is selected is not public information. Fortunately we now have moderator applications, more information can be seen here.

We choose mods based on various things, but they are never chosen out of favouritism. Just because one community member is promoted over another does not mean that said person “deserves it more”, they have just fulfilled the requirements to be promoted and are offered the position. There should be only congratulations at hand when someone is promoted, not anger that someone else was not.

If you wish to become moderator - be yourself! The reason the selection process isn’t public information is so that we can remain organic, and not promote people who are “pretending” so they can get the promotion.



Point of Contact

Back

The Moderator Managers are easier to contact than an admin and has direct contact with them if necessary. You can reach them through their forum accounts, JuicedBananas,Salkasm.

You can also find a list of the current moderators here.

And that’s it everyone! I hope that this has cleared up any discrepancies between the staff and the community and this document may be updated from time to time.


Keep on having fun and respect the staff,
-The Wynncraft Staff Team
