Is anyone able to confirm whether the new J-mods have run of the mill j-mod accounts? I had thought it was just a graphical thing where they got a gold crown, and maybe just p-mod powers, on their own personal accounts. i.e. no banstick, no rotten potato. (Odd sentence...)

Regarding crossword:



I could be wrong, but I would imagine that they get normal J-Mod accounts. Since their roles are similar to those of CM J-Mods, and CM J-Mods have "Run of the mill" J-Mod accounts, I would guess that they would have regular J-Mod accounts as well.


We'll wait and see!

CM Mods also work on-site and can't log into their jmod accounts outside of the office IIRC. This was changed back when another jmod was hacked.

If they did have a typical jmod account, they wouldn't be able to log into their RS accounts because they do work off-site. Since they're running the social media aspects of RS and that would undoubtedly involve them being online, it stands to reason that they don't have typical jmod accounts...which kinda renders the whole article's premise sort of null and void.

I see what you're saying, but SilentC0re (Mod Silent) is going to be working from the Jagex Headquarters. Do you think he would have a regular J-Mod account and the others would just have a crown? Or would they all have restricted moderator accounts?


What I'm saying is that we probably won't know unless one of them tells us :)

That is what I was thinking. Since they don't really need to interact with the games core any more than they have done in their previous years of video making. Really they're being recruited for the things they've done without any j-mod tools.

Does it matter if C0re has a regular account and the others do not? If he's working onsite he's likely under the same restrictions that the rest of the staff there are. If he's not under the same restrictions, it's most likely due to the fact that he is restricted as the others would be. Of course we won't know unless they explicitly tell us, but we can make reasonable conclusions based on what we've already seen.

What's the point of highlighting possible negligence or a leading question of power abuse when these are already concerns we must face with any other jmod? What's the point of even venturing down this path of discussion if not to insinuate that they're incapable of performing their duties as well as any other joe schmoe that Jagex hires in their very-high-turnover CM department?

Saying that things could go wrong is like saying it could rain in the summertime. Of course things could go wrong, but how is this any different than any other time? The only aspect of it that's different than what takes place every day - working from home - already exists. The article references Mod Mat K's oldschool streaming from home.
