A Hypixel Moderator is tagged with [MOD] in a dark green color. Three things that this article will say: what kind of things can a Hypixel Moderator do, what they are there for, and how to become one. A brief description about Moderators is that they are staff members of the Hypixel Network and they are there to moderate games on the Network, through catching and punishing cheaters and such.
Moderators are the highest volunteer position on Hypixel and are required to have been Helpers on the server, so if you are not currently a Helper, please do not spam the forums with requests. Moderators can not move up to be Admins unless they apply and have the necessary skill set for that position. Most Admins on Hypixel are developers they are mainly mini-game developers. Moderators' duties are to maintain the chat, forums, and games. Moderators are supposed to be the role models of the server and provide an impressionable experience for players.
Usages and CommandsEdit
Being a Moderator grants access to banning users that utilize a hacked client and such using the /ban command. In general, Moderators are supposed to enforce the rules on the server. They must do all of this while recording the offense, to ensure that the ban was necessary.
Another command exclusive for Moderators is the /kick command, which will kick any players that are stuck in a block and such during games. Do not misinterpret the /kick command with the /ban command. The /kick command simply kicks the player from the server, and the player can log back on right after that.
Additionally, a third command exclusive for Helpers and Moderators is the /mute command which will mute the player from the chat in specific, timely intervals.
