I today noticed a user in the Metaserver who was chastising another player who wanted to play a game with their friends, rather than allow anyone into their game. The user made a statement that the player's account "will be deleted" if the player did not allow anyone to join their game, and suffixed their statement with "the mod", presumably inferring that they were a moderator/operator, and thus their rule was an official one made on behalf of the project.

I have never been aware that this is a rule and although I recognise the user's username I wasn't aware of them having any role on making or enforcing rules. To threaten a player in this way seems to be dishonest and unbecoming of our welcoming and laid-back community.

Perhaps a brief note could be added to the Metaserver MOTD with details on who are considered operators and perhaps a link to a short set of rules. Be nice, play fair, do not impersonate.

He has not.

The admins/mods have a green square in front of their name.
