    I assume if it needs urgent action, then it can be deleted straight away.

    Yeah, we try to respect jurisdiction, but obviously some issues need to be dealt with quickly or are obvious

    Do admins have to follow jurisdictions as well, or are they able to moderate everywhere?

    Admins can do whatever pleases them.

    But, they usually follow the same jurisdiction as El Mach mentioned as well.

    They can do everything everywhere whenever they want.
    We are all worthless persons, we are all at their mercy, and only their goodwill allows that we stay here.


    Or something like that.

    Is there a set time before mods get promoted, or is it situational?

    junior mod -> mod: half year
    mod -> senior mod: 2 years
    X -> super mod: Situation dependent
    X -> admin: When hell freezes over or in similar situations.

    Are people in the mod forum allowed to cuss?

    Kinda sorta maybe possibly not really. :p It depends on your definition of cussing. You can say stuff like "heck" or other dulled versions, but if you're going to go to the big guns, you have to do it like the comic pages do: @%#&^ Also, no using characters that are similar to the letters you are replacing.

    I asked if cussing was allowed in the mod forum, which is a private forum for mods. I don't think you're allowed there.

    Yes, they are.
    They rarely bother though these days as the same auto blocks are in place as for the rest of the forum, so you need to put some effort into it.

    We usually create opportunities to partake in such activities behind a facade of 'discussing the inappropriate language rules'.
