Using the chat.
The chat has 6 moderators.
- ~ Rob
- ~ Patrick
- ~ Dean
- & Enchantress
- @ Chris
- @ Blazi
- @ Lawrence
If anyone else claims to be a moderator they are lying.
The easiest way to tell who is a moderator and who isn't, is the symbol next to their names.
This determines the rank of the Moderator they are
- ~ Means they are Channel owners.
- & Means they are Admins.
- @ Means they are Operators (Mods/Ops).
- % Means they are Half Operators. (Usually a mod learning to become a full Operator).
- + Means they are Voices. (These are usually to help people with problems they have involving Pokemon Vortex).
There are 4 bots on Vortex chat.
The first is DarkBot.
This is just to hold certain commands used by moderators.
The second is VBATrivia.
To start the trivia just type !trivia at any time in #Vortex_Trivia. !strivia, which stops the trivia, is now limited to halfops or higher. Trivia will automatically stop if no one answers for 5 questions.
The third is VBABot.
VBAHelp is only there to help, nothing else. It has special commands that link you to guides, give useful info, etc. At any time you want automated help just type ~help in #Pokemon_Vortex. If our automated services do not solve your problem type ~bell to get ahold of our moderators.
The fourth is UnoServ
UnoServ is on the #Vortex_Uno channel only and runs the Uno game while storing all the scores. It is also a moderating bot that can kick and ban you from the channel.
If you abuse this power or any of the Moderators you will be kicked or banned from the chat depending on the severity.
