Moderation is something we take very seriously here at Skill-Capped.com. We take pride in the fact that our forums are clean, constructive, and positive. We have moderators specifically for their class forum, as well as global moderators. Both of these types of moderators are selected, rather than given privileges by default.

There are NO FORUMS that are an exception to moderation, including the RNG Forums. While it is a forum where people can talk about whatever they want, we still expect it to be civil and positive.

Last, all members should be aware:
  • If you repeatedly break our forum policies after being warned, you well be removed from the site without a refund. Paying for a subscription does not entitle anyone to disrespect other people.

Contributor Moderation Guidelines

Our contributors are obviously held to higher standards than our members. Being a contributor on Skill Capped means that you are a professional. You are being paid to act professionally in any situation, and failure to do so will result in a reevaluation of your services to our community. So, on top of the previously listed, here are a few more guidelines to follow:
  • Contributors are official representatives of Skill Capped. They should act as such. A Contributor should never engage in flame wars, insult other members, or post in an otherwise inappropriate manner on our forums. We hold our Contributors to a higher level of conduct and will come down on Contributors very hard who break this rule.
  • Moderators are representative of Skill Capped's admins. You are entitled the respect that comes with that. If any user shows flagrant disregard or disrespect for your moderation duties please let us know and we will take the appropriate action.
  • Mods nor Contributors should never carry out personal agendas, especially with their moderation privileges. If you feel there is a conflict of interest report the post and a decision will be made on what the best course of action is.
  • Reported Posts should be responded to as promptly as possible. Mods should try to follow it back to where it started and take the appropriate actions.
