Jagex moderator crown detail.png

Jagex Moderators, also known as Staff Moderators[1], Jagex Mods, JMods, or admins are employees working for Jagex Ltd. Jagex Moderator accounts are only used for work purposes such as play-testing, debugging, attending one-to-one meetings ("surgeries"), and dealing with in-game situations.

Jagex Moderator accounts will always have a gold crown (Jagex moderator crown.png) beside their name when in public chat, as well as a gold glow around their posts with a gold avatar background when posting on the forums. Jagex Moderator usernames will always begin with "Mod", although there have been some exceptions. Ian, Paul, and Andrew Gower's usernames were simply "Ian", "Paul", and "Andrew".

Employees can only login to a Jagex Moderator account while connected to Jagex's private network.[2] They navigate the RuneScape website using a staff portal, a webpage that gives them quick access to moderation tools.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

There are a range of abilities that Jagex Moderators possess. They can:

General[edit | edit source]

  • Use the tools that Player Moderators and Forum Moderators have to moderate the game and the forums, as well as being able to issue bans. They also have these abilities on other games and services owned by Jagex.

In-game[edit | edit source]

  • Use the rotten potato, an in-game item that has multiple uses, including healing to full, accessing the bank, and sending bots to Botany Bay.
  • Turn invisible.
  • Add or remove items from their inventory. Any items dropped aren't visible to other players.
  • Modify their skills, including their combat level.
  • Teleport to any location by holding CTRL and clicking on the minimap. Alternatively, they can double click a location on the world map.
  • Use the developer console in order to change many variables associated with their in-game account, such as quest progress and completion. It can also be used to teleport to players, prevent automatic logout, among other commands.
  • Transform into any NPC.
  • Pass, walk on and teleport over physical boundaries (no-clip).
  • Make themselves vulnerable or invulnerable to all forms of attack.
  • Kick/ban players from a friends chat or clan chat that doesn't belong to them.
  • Access member areas while playing in a free-to-play world.
  • Spawn NPCs in any location.
  • Wear the Jagex Moderator outfit.
  • View chat messages that are no longer visible in the chatbox.
  • Start a Jagex Moderator Event and give out event cards. They can run community scenarios using the pickled cabbage, and access the JMod Toolbox interface.
  • Use world 13, a server only JMods can see and access.

Forums[edit | edit source]

  • Use HTML and JavaScript, allowing them to change fonts, include images, and post videos.
  • Edit other player's posts.
  • Make threads into sticky threads, causing them to be displayed at the top of the forum.
  • Lock threads and edit titles. These actions cannot be reversed by Forum Moderators.

Gallery[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Mod Paupersen (anagram for 'Made up Person') was a fake Jagex Moderator that was featured in the 2010 April Fools joke.
  • Players cannot create accounts that have 'Mod' in their name to prevent confusion and scams. One early player created the account "Mod Element" before this restriction was implemented but was later required to change his name. Mod Element has since been used by an actual employee of Jagex.
  • JMod accounts exist with NPC names such as Avalani, Wiz Chambers, and Sliske. They were used by Jagex employees to post on the forums during the Cryptic Clue Fest II, Tuska Comes, and Sliske's Christmas Adventure events.
  • T. S. Church was given a JMod account in order to do a Q&A regarding his novel Betrayal at Falador.
  • Players used to be able to trade with and attack Jagex Moderators whenever they wanted, however an update now prevents players from doing so.
  • Players can throw a gnomeball to a JMod, but JMods can only throw it to other JMods.
  • If a JMod is reported for Staff Impersonation, a message will state "You cannot report that person for Staff Impersonation, they are Jagex Staff. You can spot a Jagex Moderator by the gold crown next to their name. You can report that person under a different rule."
  • Messages sent by a JMod in any channel can be seen regardless of if a player has their messages turned off, including private messages.
  • Players cannot bless gravestones that belong to a JMod.
  • Jagex Moderators never appear on HiScores, and their adventurer's log is set to private.
  • JMods can mute each other. They can also be muted by Player Moderators and ChatWatch.
  • JMods could still get random events while they existed.
  • The combat level of a Jagex Moderator always appears in red.
  • JMods cannot sit on the Throne of Fame.[43]
  • A total of six Jagex Moderators have been without 'Mod' in their names, being rsguide, sirmodsteve, Rab, Andrew, Ian and Paul.
  • Jagex moderators can be Ironman accounts, and their deaths do get broadcast.[44]
