I've been a voiced member on Pokemon Showdown for about a month now, but I'm still a bit confused about minimodding. I've always known users shouldn't ask for someone to be banned or muted, because that's the job of moderators. However, I didn't know users were also discouraged from telling other users to use less caps, bold, etc.
Following the examples of other voices, I have been trying to warn users before they get banned/muted. Of course, I don't bother with malicious spammers; moderators take care of them quickly. I usually only warn people who I believe will listen. Some people do listen and will reply with an "ok" to my warnings.
No one has ever reprimanded me for this, but today I noticed a mod kick a regular user for doing this. Are we not allowed to warn other users? No one's ever informed me of this. I apologize if I've been disrupting the chat!
Yeah, I know it's an unoriginal username. Get over it :)
