The moderator should be ready to incur responsibility for his actions on the forum. Therefore, it is impermissible to cause arbitrariness and give unreasonable punishment.

Remember that even the downright flooders come to the forum in search of rewards from the referral and will most likely disappear when it will come to their apprehension that hooking in a trusted user under your eagle eye is not an easy task.
- Be attentive to those forum members who have initial experience in HYIP, ICO and Crypto industry. Be more loyal to them. Not all of them are experienced in forum communication and thus such forum users look out your support.
- A moderator should be efficient and come up with prompt solutions to users' problems. If you find it impossible to solve an issue by your own means, contact the administrators.
- If there is a project you are in charge of, then all user's questions in relation to this project are also in your jurisdiction. For this reason, it is advisable to be in touch with representatives or project managers directly.
- Maintain the order on the forum. Follow the administrators' instructions.
- Be recurrently on the forum. If you cannot possibly be on forum for a time, be sure to notify of how long you will be absent so that your topics and reviews won't not be ignored by other moderators.

- The moderator is always right! But to make this rule work for you, you must be stay true and impartial in your decisions.
- is repetitive (twice and more) user's messages per one topic holding no meaning or a modicum of useful information.
- is the change-over of polemics from the matter at hand to a wordy warfare, which is no longer relevant to the original topic.
- is creation of topics or posts with a provocative intention to it. The goal is to trigger a flame, flooding or other conflict situations.
- Off topics
- are user messages that overstep the boundaries pf a declared subject.
- is an excessive usage of quotes in a message. Citation runs over the user's own message length.
- Cross Posting
- deliberate placement of the same topic, or very similar, affecting the same problem topic, in several different sections of the forum.
- Provocative behaviour
- is a way of communication without understand each others' positions. For example, racist, extremist and chauvinist statements (or other types of discrimination) and the abuse of our viewers.
- is adding of a new message to a long-dead forum thread. Necroposting is characterized by a conspicuous and obvious difference between the dates of the posting and of a last message.
Solving the flood issue: write a notification to the author informing him or her that such messages are considered irrelevant. Next step is to delete and caution. Before the final warning notify once more. Blocking of a new-comer for systematic flooding should not exceed 7 days. 1 day is usually enough.
We write without aggression or abusive expressions.
If an experienced forum member is caught flooding and there is no doubt that it was not done for the sake of credit stamping, but simply in the heat of discussion, warnings and punishments must not be executed. You can gently guide the chat to a smoother flow, or delete these messages in a couple of hours after the end of the conversation or later.
Be lenient. The forum is created first and foremost for communication and it is the communication that makes by-passers permanent forum users. Flame, necroposting, provocative behaviour and other negativities are to be removed without doubt, with a relevant notification put in in the required column when deleting.
P.S. If you are a visitor to the forum, and believe the moderator to be wrong, you should read the rules of the forum.
P.P.S. Any complaints against moderators' actions can be sent through the contact form. All the best!
