This gets a little confusing, we know. You will encounter three types of mods here:
In-game mods are chosen by the game developers. They can’t do stuff on Kongregate, and the Kongregate moderators (see below) can’t help you with things in the game.
Kongregate chat mods have an orange M next to their name in the chat list. They can help you with chat problems like spamming, flaming, overly sexual language and so on. They can silence or ban you, so you should listen to them; they are volunteers, so please be nice to them.
Kongregate forum mods have an orange F next to their name in their forum posts, and their name is listed in the upper-right corner of the first page of the forum. They can help you with forum problems like spamming, people harassing you or derailing your thread, overly sexual language and so on. They can edit or hide your posts and lock your threads, so you should listen to them; they are volunteers, so please be nice to them.
If you have a problem with a mod or how they handled a particular situation, please don’t make a forum thread about it or them! Instead, contact them directly or contact an admin. You can report Kongregate moderators by going to their profile and clicking the link that says “report abuse.” (We read them all, I promise, though we don’t write back to everyone.)
