Almost all moderators are Repl.it Discord helpers, and you get chosen by the admins if you seem like a good fit. Also we don't get paid, like Subreddit moderators.

@mat1 We should start a repl.it moderator union and demand pay.

@Zavexeon You could get paid in good boy points

but some times you do get kicked from the team for no reason

TheDrone7 (665)

You were underage @PDanielY I'm surprised they're still letting you use repl.it

PDanielY (433)

@TheDrone7 Don't think thats why they kicked me

TheDrone7 (665)

@PDanielY yes it is. According to @21natzil you cannot stay in the server if you don't cooperate with the discord ToS.

TheDrone7 (665)

@PDanielY you were never a moderator while on discord. You later became one when Zave made that post about lack of mods, I think.

TheDrone7 (665)

@TaylorLiang there's not really a limit but according to terms of service of many apps such as discord, only people above the age of 13 are allowed to use them.

AdCharity (679)

@PDanielY noo what happened to your mod status

TaylorLiang (315)

@TheDrone7 oh. Then what about that one dev spotlight with a 8 year old?

TheDrone7 (665)

@TaylorLiang I can think of 2 reasons: -
1. Zwack wasn't the community manager then.
2. The community is lenient towards prodigies.

TaylorLiang (315)

@TheDrone7 ah yes, the era of timmyichen

TaylorLiang (315)

@TheDrone7 also, why was a age requirment put in place for repl moderation?

TheDrone7 (665)

@TaylorLiang the same reason as everywhere else, people under the age of 13 have immature minds and might use up their parents hard earned money for something they just wanted to spend it on randomly, like buying the repl.it hacker plan using their parents credit card without their permission and make no use of it cuz they didn't even really need it but just wanted to see what's the difference.

PDanielY (433)

@TheDrone7 I was never on the discord server. So it couldn't have been that

TheDrone7 (665)

@PDanielY
1. You were on the server, I remember very well you being there and so do many helpers. You were banned from the server due to being underage.

  1. Due to Zave's Post, a lot of people were added as moderators on replit talk. They later filtered to only keep the people who were actively moderating the talk posts.

@TheDrone7 I got moderator after I got kicked from the server and I was one of the people who were actively moderating the talk posts
