We have the Chat extension enabled, and with that we have the ability to make users Chatmoderators, who are able to kick/ban users from Chat. Currently we have no method to allow users to become chatmoderators unless they complete a Request for adminship, since administrators are given the chatmoderator right. I propose we set up a system to allow users to become a chatmoderator in a process similar to an RfA/RfR. Here is how I picture it:

  1. Each request is done on a subpage of the RfCM page, to preserve the edit history for the request
  2. They will be open for 2 weeks.
  3. Candidates can be self-nominated, or nominated by other users.

The Candidates will be expected to:

  1. Be an active member of the Chat
  2. Know the wiki's policies, especially the ones related to user treatment and RS:STATUS
  3. They should be an active editor of the wiki, since we're not just a social medium.

These discussions could be closed by admins or crats, since both can add people to the chatmoderator usergroup, so we might want to discuss that as well. I'm in favour of letting admins being able to close it.

Addition - With the passing of the Forum:Rules for the Chat thread, ChatMods will be expected to know those policies as well.


Support - As nominator. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 03:42, August 10, 2011 (UTC)

Support - Looks good to me. Suppa chuppa Talk 03:42, August 10, 2011 (UTC)

Support - Sure, even though sysops go in there occasionally- but not occasionally enough ;) S T Y G 03:45, August 10, 2011 (UTC)

When I'm on wiki I'm in Chat ;) svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 03:46, August 10, 2011 (UTC)

Strong Support - Many times I have been in the chat when no mods were on. Over half of those times, all hell broke loose. If we get some more chatmods that should happen less frequently. --Touhou FTW 03:55, August 10, 2011 (UTC)

Support - Let's do it already. --クールネシトーク 13:13, August 10, 2011 (UTC)

Support - Plus we can call them RfCs now that we deleted requests for comment. Real Nub 13:27, August 10, 2011 (UTC)

Support - I like the idea. Smithing (talk | contribs) 13:56, August 10, 2011 (UTC)

Support - I've got a couple of ideas for chat mods already What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 14:27, August 10, 2011 (UTC)

Support - In addition to being familiar with the Wiki's policies, they should also be familiar with the chat rules if that YG passes. (: sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 16:39, August 10, 2011 (UTC)

Support - It all sounds good to me. ɳex undique 19:00, August 10, 2011 (UTC)

Support - Surprised it hasn't already been done. RSHelp (talk) 19:04, August 10, 2011 (UTC)

Question - Is it just me or is there no link to the chat on the main page? RSHelp (talk) 23:56, August 11, 2011 (UTC)
There is a link on every page bar the RecentChanges and the main page What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 00:23, August 12, 2011 (UTC)
I must be blind, cause I just don't see it, on the main page. where exactly? can u take a pic n show me? I've tried ff n ie. RSHelp (talk) 00:53, August 12, 2011 (UTC)
He probably meant except for the recent changes and main page. --クールネシトーク 00:55, August 12, 2011 (UTC)
Bar means except for. Suppa chuppa Talk 00:57, August 12, 2011 (UTC)

Strong support - especially now there is this bug that people join and quit chat very often so that screens will be filled with only that person joining and quitting, it is useful to have some chatmods available to stop it. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 09:37, August 11, 2011 (UTC)

Support - this will help keep order during the times when no sysops are in chat or are in chat but away. --Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 23:23, August 11, 2011 (UTC)

Great Support - We have had many trolls that have came in during the time when we have no admins for chat bans (Though I normally go to the wiki clan to get a admin if one is on). So this would be a epic idea! Twig Talk 772kZGs.png 00:01, August 12, 2011 (UTC)

Addition - Candidates should be expected to keep the running list of current Chat bans updated (which I'll move to the mainspace once the page is completed, prototype can be found here, feel free to add to it). sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 01:49, August 15, 2011 (UTC)
