Account Memberships

Restricted, Suspended, & Deactivated

Restricted, Suspended, and Deactivated memberships are given to players who have broken the rules in some capacity. Restricted accounts do not have access to any communication features on the site, including messages, the Message Boards, and the Chatroom. Accounts with a suspended or deactivated membership cannot access any pages on the game. The difference between the latter two is that Suspended memberships are temporary, whereas Deactivation is permanent.

Verified

Your membership can be Verified by using a cell phone to confirm that you are a unique human being. You can do this by visiting the Account Verification Page. You may be asked to Verify your membership if more than one user appears linked to your IP address. Once Verified, your phone number is deleted from our database to ensure your privacy.

Mods

A moderator is a person, being at least eighteen (18) years of age, who has volunteered to manage player content and enforce the Terms of Service. Moderators have special account features, which give them the authority to reprimand rule breakers, and penalize accounts with warnings, fines, restrictions, suspensions, or deactivation. You can think of mods as being the "police officers" of GoneMushing.

There are several types of mods, and this helps break-up our work load. It also ensure that GoneMushing has checks and balances within its authority system. Some moderators may be in charge of handling certain situations, while others are equipped to supervise different aspects of the game. In general, you do not need to worry about the differences between mods. You should show any mod the same level of respect that you would give to any other. If you have a problem that requires the attention of any type of Mod, please submit a ticket to the Support Center. From there, we'll make sure that your report gets into the right hands.

Super Mods

Super Mods are here to mediate disputes between players and Mods, and between Mods and Admins. They have the exclusive ability to expunge warnings created by Mods, demote Mods, and add players to the Blacklist. Super Mods may also manage many game features, including the News Section and the Profanity Filter.

Mods

Mods are here to mediate disputes between players. Should a situation arise in which you do not feel comfortable addressing a problem yourself, the Mods are here to help you. They have arsenal of special features which allow them enforce the rules by warning, fining, restricting, suspending, or deactivating accounts (among other things). Mods also manage several game features, including the Image Gallery, Polls, Contests, and Chat Announcements.

New Mods

New Mods should be considered Mods in training. Like Mods, they are here to mediate disputes between players. They have access to many of the same features and pages that Mods do, with some limitations.

Retired Mods

Retired Mods may participate in conversations between Mods, but they do not have any other special account features. A Retired Mod cannot fine, warn, restrict, suspend, or deactivate your account. They do not have special access to the Support Center. This title exists so that Mods who are no longer active can voluntarily (and respectfully) step-down from their position.
