Moderators are selected members of the community with rights to moderate the chat according to the guidelines.
Administrators and Discord Administrators
By default, administrators also have moderator abilities in chat. Their key responsibilities are to manage the server, engage user activity, manage polls and input the consensus from discussions within the Discord community.
1) Please be respectful.
2) Please keep things such as roleplaying, lots of bot commands, or MLP spoilers etc. to the channels dedicated for these purposes.
3) Please check each channel's topic to know what it is used for.
4) Chat topics which are making other users uncomfortable should be stopped when discomfort is clear.
5) Pornography, gore and other explicit material are not permitted: this includes links and direct uploads of such material.
6) Obscene usernames are not permitted. Do not misuse the "Playing..." Discord feature to display inappropriate comments.
7) Do not advertise: this includes other Discord servers and websites.
8) Do not flood the chat with emoticons, ASCII art, ALL-CAPS, or other hard-to-decipher text.
9) Do not post other people's personal information. Please exercise due care in sharing your own personal information.
10) Do not "mini-mod". If an administrator or moderator is dealing with a situation, please let them deal with the situation without further input.
11) If you would like to discuss a mute, kick or ban, please contact a moderator or administrator (ideally the one who gave the mute, kick or ban) through direct message, or use the following form: https://tinyurl.com/yb7v3skv - It is not acceptable to re-enter the server on a different account after a ban under any circumstances.
12) After an episode airing, spoilers are only allowed in #mlp_material until the Monday after. #wiki-activity shows activity on the Wiki and may include spoilers, please be aware.
13) Trolling of any kind is prohibited.
Moderators have the right to use their discretion to make judgements and can take action with situations that may not always be under policy. e.g. passive trolling (trolling or targeting someone in a way that doesn't look like the user is doing anything wrong when in fact they are). This is to be used within reason and if abused, should be reported to an administrator as soon as possible for investigation.

- Mod-logs - When someone is warned, muted, banned or kicked on the server, our moderation bot makes a note of it on this channel.
Moderators will always try to warn fairly prior taking enforcement action (excluding warnings). If the warnings are not followed, the below actions may occur:
- Warn - A warning is logged by our moderator bot in #mod-logs and when possible, is always the first approach to a breach in guidelines.
- Mute - If warnings are not adhered to or on rare occasions, moderators are not left with another alternative, the mute function prevents users from sending any messages for the time-frame set by the muting moderator/administrator.
- Kick - The user in question is kicked from the server and are able to rejoin with a new invitation.
- Ban - A ban is regarded as a final resort and is only used in exceptional circumstances. This prevents the user rejoining and all links to the server show as "expired". A ban can be overturned, however it is moderator discretion and should only be undone with prior discussion with the banning moderator/administrator.
- If you wish to appeal a ban, please join our appeals server and put your case forward. Please note, we will only accept appeals that have integrity and proper reasoning to them. Click here to join
All users including Administrators, Discord Operators and Moderators are expected to follow the guidelines as set out in this policy. In the very unlikely event this does not occur, users with enhanced rights are subject to the same outcome as those without as well as having their positions under question in the form of a forum. Each situation is dealt by a case-by-case basis.
If gross misconduct is observed, the user in question is subject to having their rights revoked immediately by an Administrator. What constitutes as gross misconduct is up to the discretion of the administrator at the time. If the person in question happens to be an administrator, users are asked to contact and alternative Administrator. If anyone has any concerns, please contact an Administrator.
