## MODERATION TEAM
In the past, moderation of official Secret Network community channels has been handled by a mix of core team members (SCRT Labs and Secret Network Foundation) and community members. No specific moderation process was ever established which resulted in many past moderation decisions being made by individuals.
We’re aiming to change that by formalizing this set of rules, creating a new moderation team consisting mostly of community members, and requiring group consensus on moderation actions. Additional community moderators may be added over time.
The initial moderation team will consist of:
Red eyed bear
## MODERATION PROCESS
When a user breaks one of the above rules, a moderator will first warn the user and specify which rule is being broken. If the user continues to break this rule, a moderator will notify the moderation team, and action will then be taken. Moderation actions will consist almost entirely of temporary mutes, which can last from between 15 minutes to a week, depending on the severity and number of repeat offenses. Longer term mutes will require group consensus. Only in severe cases will permanent bans be considered, and we hope to avoid ever having to permanently ban a community member.
We welcome the community’s feedback on all of the above! We hope that this new set of guidelines will result in a more positive community environment.
