Working Scenario

  1. Moderated-chat mode is activated , and every chat user in the current room will get notification .
  2. Every message submitted by the ordinary users or upgraded membership users may no longer show directly, and below it, an option will show to the management team: " Approve or Decline ".

  3. The super admin, admin or moderator then select those relevant to approve them to show, or ignore them to do vice versa.
  4. The speaker answers questions and show directly, which everybody can see.

Users Hierarchy

There are five kinds of users in a Moderated-Chat room, by default, they are distinguished by username colors.

  1. Super Admin (bold purple) - Super admin has the highest rank and grants power to admin, they can screen chat too.
  2. Admin (bold red) - Screens questions for all rooms, and designates the moderator and speaker for each room.
  3. Moderator (bold green) - Screens questions in a specific room.
  4. Speaker (bold orange) - Makes speeches or answers questions.
  5. User (green) - Asks question and reads responses.

The first 3 kinds of users are entitled to enable/disable the mode , also to kick annoying users out. while the first two can ban/unban username/IP as well.

The Speaker can also be left blank, and in that circumstance, a moderator or admin may answer questions instead. Also, only a registered user can be a Speaker.

Speaker's Privileges

  1. The speaker has pretty much the same privilege as the regular users, unless his/her words get straightly published.
  2. Speakers won't be bombarded with inappropriate messages, allowing the chat to be carefully controlled.
  3. Ordinary users can't activate a private chat with a speaker, while only super admin, admin and moderator can.
  4. Ordinary users can't ignore a speaker or any other in the management team.
