A Local Moderator, also known as a Local Mod or LMod, was a Community Management team member working for one of Jagex's official partners. They could be identified with a purple crown next to their name in chat, and a purple background in the RuneScape Forums. The Local Moderator program was discontinued in 2015.
Roles and abilities
Local Moderators helped manage their designated communities in-game and on the forums. Their roles were to help new players, organise events, run competitions, engage and protect their designated community. Local Moderators had the ability to add a mute to a report for offences; however, they were not allowed to give free items or trade other players. Local Moderators were usually in-game for special occasions.
Recognizing a Local Moderator
Local Moderators could be identified with a purple crown next to their name in chat. On the RuneScape forums, Local Moderator posts had a purple background, and the words "Local Mod" appeared beneath their names. They could be found only in the Spanish and Portuguese versions of the game and forums.
Becoming a Local Moderator
In order to become a Local Moderator, one had to be working for the Community Management team for one of Jagex's partners: Gamerica/UOL and Aexso5.
