This page is dedicated to explaining the expectations and requirements of moderators for RLSS.GG. If you are a moderator, please familiarise yourself with this page, and if you are a community member, please be sure to notify the rest of the staff team if you see someone abusing their powers or breaking these rules so they can be dealt with appropriately.
Each rule is listed with a number of specific circumstances below it. Punishments should be dealt as provided for the specific circumstance, however if no specific rules are given the punishments on the rule itself should be used. If there has been a significant amount of time since the last offense, it can be ignored and treated as a fresh start. This means if a player was, for example, being toxic a month or two ago, and they have a second offense, this can just be treated as an initial punishment.
A warning can be either using Dyno's ?warn command or simply a verbal warning done with a ping.

Moderators are essential for keeping a server from turning into a mess. However, mods are still members of the community and are held under extra scrutiny. As well as the expectations listed in the rules, some apply specifically to moderators:
When a ticket is created, it will notify all online moderators. If a ticket has been created as a complaint of a moderator, that moderator should not be the one to handle the ticket. Tickets are also created to update 4mans rank or to get the verified grand champion role. These requests require screenshot proof of their profile to ensure they are legitimate. In past, 4mans has used the player's highest current rank, however now it only considers the 2s rank, since rank distribution has evened out since the game's initial release.
Once a ticket is resolved, it can be archived, which allows it to be reviewed if necessary, while also allowing the player to create a new ticket in the future, as only 1 active ticket is allowed at a time.
A number of commands have been created for use by moderators, whether it be through Dyno or the RLSS bot. These are the available commands that are necessary for use:
When giving reasons for the Dyno moderation commands, give a simple and clear reason, such as "spam". This reason is sent to the offender and also stored in the logs which is why it is necessary to be clear.
When a player needs their rank to be set, use the !setrank command, and never manually set the roles. This command also updates the database, and if a role is changed manually the player's ELO will not be reflected in this change, and their following game will both have incorrect ELO gain/loss, but also will result in their rank setting back to what it was previously.
