There are three kinds of moderators on Kong.
Global moderators can moderate in any chat room on the site. Once upon a time all mods were global mods.
We found, though, that this approach had quite a few flaws. So we switched over to a system of room mods , where players are mods in one or more chat rooms but not for every room on the site.
Global mods are not better than room mods; they have just been around longer. We are not making any more global mods. All this is discussed a bit more here.
A Room Owner has the added responsibility to care for the room.
There are also forum mods who (as you might guess) keep an eye on some of Kong’s many forums.
