Chat Moderators are users on the wiki who are just like many others, except the fact that they have the power to maintain anything related to chat that does not include Wikia updates. Chat Moderators maintain the atmosphere in chat for a variety of purposes and can also limit chat features for users, if necessary.

Chat Moderator Abilities
These additional functions are:
- Maintaining chat.
- Kicking and banning users from chat for being disruptive.
How Do I Use Chat Moderating Powers?
Clicking on a name in the user list will open a menu. You can see the user's name, edit count, join date as well as access their talk page / message wall, contributions and send them a private message. Private message opens a new private message room.
Chat moderators have additional options.
- Kick will kick that user out of the chat
- Ban will allow you to ban the user for a specific set of time (chosen from a dropdown menu) as well as allow you to state a reason why. Bans can also be set from the User contributors page.
Becoming A Chat Moderator
For you to become a chat moderator, someone with administrator or bureaucrat access must make you one. On larger Wikia, there will usually be a community page for requests. On a smaller wiki, you may simply ask on the community portal or Forum, or ask a bureaucrat directly on his or her talk page.
If there are no active bureaucrats or administrators and you wish to become a chat moderator, please contact the community staff on the Central Wikia.
What Can Chat Moderators Not Do?
Chat Moderators are only supposed to maintain chat and enforce rules, either chat rules or regular policies. Chat Moderators have the power to kick or even ban someone for chat, but while they are given the option, they cannot abuse their power. They must do it only if it is necessary. If a Chat Moderator has been revealed to be abusing their powers, their rights will be removed.
