Moderator Guide

Hey, RPF, Ultipenguinj here.  I’ve noticed some things going on in RPF chat that shouldn’t be going on, and mods are doing these things, too.  I thought that I’d re-post Cool’s Moderator Guide, since some people have never seen it.  Remember, this goes for owners, too!  Even members should read this, so you know when you are being abused, and so you will know what to do when you get moderator.

Hello RPF,

It is 78562cool back for another guide.  This week’s guide is all about being a great moderator.  This post will include do’s/don’ts of mods, along with pictures of Smilie Spam, Flooding, and Spam.  So you can identify each and respond accordingly.  To be an effective mod, I also suggest reading the chat rules located underneath the RPFVictory Chat.  These rules can also be seen below:

Lets begin with the do’s of being a moderator.


  • Warn for Smilie Spam, Spam, and Flooding.  An example of each of these can be found below. Each person gets 2 chances to stop.  First and second warnings result in a warn.  3rd offense results in a short ban.  *Disclaimer* For new troops, please explain to them what to do to avoid getting warned/banned.

Example of spam

  • Ban for cussing/being inappropriate.  These can result in bans up to 6 hours based on the severity of the offense.
  • Ban spies.  During an event, if you see a spy, ban intermediately and report to leader/owner.
  • Ban those who advertise on the RPFVictory chat.  This includes links to other armies’ chats.  *Disclaimer*  Do not ban if it is RPF related chats.  These chats include division chats and the RPFBC chat.
  • Membering guests.   Only member a guest with an ID.  An example of a person with an ID can be found below.


  • Taking control of the chat.  If there are members fighting in the main chat, issue a warning to all offenders.  Then follow up on that warning if they continue to fight/argue.  Those who are fighting will typically stop fighting after you issue the warning.
  • Warning for negativity towards RPF.
  • PCing new recruits and welcoming them to RPF.  Explain to them what we are and how to join, and emphasize to them to come back to the RPF chat.  The recruits don’t do us any good if they never return!
  • Warn/Ban those who are harassing other RPF soldiers.  The severity of the situation correlates to the decision of whether to ban or warn.
  • Always keep your cool.  If you get stressed out, you won’t be able to enforce the rules.
  • Always repeat tactics and room changes during events.  It allows people who may have missed the message to catch up and act accordingly.

And know for the Don’ts: 

  • Don’t go “AFK”  Away From Keyboard too much while on the chat.  If you aren’t on your computer, you can’t do your job of moderating the chat.
  • Don’t ignore issues in the chat.  If you see something, react accordingly.
  • Never break a rule that you are enforcing.
  • Never abuse.  Don’t warn/ban unless it is needed.  This will lead to you being un-modded.
  • Never harass other RPF soldiers.
  • Don’t set a bad example for the other RPF soldiers.  They are looking up to you to see how they should act.
  • Always log on the when the leaders tell you the first time.  When you are online you are able to help position other members of RPF.

Well that is all for this week!  I hope this helps out.   As you are modded, I suggest reading this.  It will help to adjust to the new rank.

Comment your opinions of this guide, was it helpful?



I've been in CP armies since summer 2013. My first army was the Nachos, which I quit after 2 weeks. Then I moved to the Rebel Penguin Federation. I also was a co-creator of Legion Sky Warriors.

    I asked Ultipenguin J to put this on actually because I’ve been seeing a few mods maybe owners who are acting strangely and sometimes even when mods react to a member and owners are good friends with that member they mad undo whatever the mod just did to cause confusion but I have about 2 definitely 1 mod who has been not following the rules so far so thankyou Ulti for putting this on for me and for everyone really. ~ Teigan ~
