The Role of a Moderator

What does a moderator do?

A moderator is a member from the community who is granted special permissions as to be apart of a self governing process as to keep the stability of the server manageable.


Introduction to the Channels

The channel "how-to-mod" has a link back to this document in case you need to reference it at any time.


All reasons in regards to making decisions when kicking and banning people are to be mentioned in the "moderation" before executing the command.


The "time-zones" channel exists so other moderators including the lead moderator can know when people will likely be online.


The bot of choice for Summit Studios is MEE6.

If at anytime you need time off, go to the moderation roles channel and select on-break.


Chain of Command

Peer Review

When moderating and you come across an issue or have a question, ask a fellow moderator for help. If they can’t help/unable to answer your question, ask a lead moderator. If the lead moderator is not able to answer your question, then leave your question or pressing issue in the moderation channel. Once someone is available, your question may be answered.


The Chain of Command allows this Discord server to function in a highly effective manner. Supporting a more dynamic sense of what is going on in the server.


As a moderator, you are able to view all channels across the servers that the public is in.


To bring up an issue to the council of moderators follow this guide.


If the issue is obvious proceed to the next section, otherwise if you are unsure as to proceed in utilizing your ability to exile someone continue reading.


Step 1: Ask yourself would I do this if I were in their shoes?

Step 2: Identify the issue and the person(s) using a screenshot.

Learning How to Find and Inspire Peace

Ruling with violence does not work. Do not abuse your powers, if you need to. Put yourself on break and get some air and do what you would if you had a peaceful mind.


If you are bored while monitoring the server, check out the "resource-center" to find playlists, videos, and things you can do while monitoring the channels.


A healthy mind has a healthy body, make sure you get outside and exercise!
