Warframe: Volunteers (2022)

Our Volunteer Chat Moderator team serves the community by making sure that the Warframe in-game chat channels remain civil. When automated moderation can’t catch the bad, these volunteers jump into action!

Alongside a team of professional, third-party moderators and automated bots like Kickbot, Chat Moderators oversee the in-game chat channels.

Learn more about the Chat Moderators Responsibilities, Code of Conduct, and Action Overview here.

Identifying Chat Moderators

Chat Moderators have the Chat Moderator Accolade (text box icon) in their in-game profile.

How to Become a Chat Moderator

There is no application to become a Chat Moderator. Digital Extremes staff carefully select each Chat Moderator from the Warframe player community. We look for a history of positive contributions to the community and a spotless Warframe account history.

Chat Moderation Action Overview

Chat Moderators are given items to act upon, which can change based on how terms are used and altered within the community. In-game chat controls like Kickbot refer to a list of flagged terms that can be modified at Digital Extreme's sole discretion. Chat Moderators are expected to act with compassion and level-handedness. The list below covers general actionable items only. Please note that this is not an exhaustive list, and attempts to circumvent such rules will be actioned on accordingly.

Moderators are authorized to act upon the following:

Reporting a Chat Moderator or Requesting a Moderation Review

If a player wishes to dispute a case of Chat Moderation, or to report inappropriate behavior, they can do so by creating a ticket at http://support.warframe.com where it will be reviewed by Warframe Staff. Please note that support and other Digital Extremes staff will not discuss any punitive measures taken against Chat Moderators, showing them the same respect as we would any other community member.

Chat Moderation is a process performed by humans, and errors (such as misclicking on a moderation tool, or spelling issues) can happen, and we will take any steps to correct such issues. However, repeated abuse of the reporting function will be treated in the same manner as other kind of system abuse, and may result in punitive actions taken to a reporting player’s account.

Digital Extremes will not respond to, or take action on purposefully false claims, and will not tolerate the unfair hunting / targeting of individuals who are in any of our volunteer programs. As a result, Digital Extremes will treat such attempts as violations of our EULA and ToS, which can result in the temporary or permanent removal of a players access to Warframe.

Digital Extremes may amend the Chat Moderator Code of Conduct at any time in its sole discretion. Amendments and modifications will be effective immediately after publishing them on the Website.
