Assigning moderators is an essential part of running a stable chat room. Moderators can ban or silence disruptive users, close broadcasts and depending on the room settings, play videos and manage the playlist.
Moderators can be assigned in two ways.
Firstly, the room owner can add a moderator in the room settings. Owner-assigned moderators are considered permanent, and will retain their status as long as the room owner keeps them there.
Secondly, a permanent moderator can assign another user. Assigned moderators will be added to the room's moderator list. However, unlike permanent moderators they can be un-assigned by any other permanent moderator.
In guest rooms, the first user in the room is the moderator by default. Users can be assigned via the user list menu or a command by any other moderator.
