How do I assign chat moderators in my broadcasts?

Last Updated: Oct 15, 2018 02:02PM PDT

Chat moderators are mutual follows you select who can mute individual audience members in your broadcast (if someone is muted, the muted message is hidden, and they won’t be able to send additional chats). At the end of your broadcast, you can see a list of the viewers that your moderators muted, and choose whether or not you want to block them.

You have comment moderation settings to control who moderates your broadcasts and whether you moderate others’ broadcasts. You can access these settings from your Periscope profile by selecting “Comment Moderation”.

For your broadcasts, you can enable/disable viewer voting (allowing viewers to vote on whether comments that get reported in your broadcasts are abusive) and assign chat moderators. You can choose to have viewer voting, chat moderators, or both, to suit your preference.

To assign chat moderators:

  1. Select “Comment Moderation” on your Periscope profile
  2. Tap “My Moderators”
  3. Search mutual follows for the moderators you’re looking to add and select them (accounts shown with “Unavailable to moderate.” subtext can’t be selected)
  4. Tap “Add” in the upper right corner of the screen

To remove chat moderators:

  1. Select “Comment Moderation” on your Periscope profile
  2. Swipe left over the chat moderator you want to remove
  3. Select “Remove”

For other broadcasts, you can enable/disable your participation in voting on whether a reported comment is abusive (‘I want to vote”), enable/disable whether you want to be added as a moderator by broadcasters you follow (“I want to moderate”), and view and manage a list of broadcasters who have added you as a moderator (“Broadcasters I help moderate”).

To remove yourself as a moderator for a broadcaster you follow:

  1. Select “Broadcasters I help moderate”
  2. Swipe left over the broadcaster you no longer want to moderate for
  3. Select “Remove”

If you are a moderator, you can mute a comment by tapping on it and selecting “Mute”. On iOS and Android you can also swipe left on a message to mute it. Muting hides the comment from everyone and mutes the commenter for the rest of that broadcast. To unmute a user, tap on one of their muted comments and select “Unmute”.
