Frequently asked questions about Umbra's staff.

What are the roles of each staff group?

At Umbra, we have three tiers of staff: administrators, moderators, and assistants. Staff members' usernames will always be bold and have an "Administrator," "Moderator," or "Assistant" banner beneath them.

Administrators can do just about anything on the site. Their main job is to handle "behind the scene" issues on Umbra, such as site or theme glitches, maintenance, account management, age verification, etc. Administrators also handle serious rule violations such as underage reports or reports of forbidden roleplay content.

Current Umbra Administrators: Nevermind, Nyctibius

Moderators have the ability to perform many helpful tasks around the site, such as moving threads, deleting posts, handling minor rule violations, community outreach and recruitment, and resolving member conflicts. If there is an issue a moderator is ill-equipped to handle for whatever reason, the issue is bumped up to the site's administrators.

Current Umbra Moderators: Candi Cosmo

While Assistants do not have any special privileges or abilities, they do hold a special position on the site. Assistants help perform a variety of tasks, anything from event planning to greeting new members, answering questions in our General Questions forum, making graphics for the site, or simply generating new content in our General Chat forum. Assistants help keep Umbra happy and welcoming. This position is extremely flexible, so each assistant can mold the position to what they're interested in.

Current Umbra Assistants: Dao Ma, Merra, ReireitheSmileFaerie

How do I report a staff member?

If a staff member has behaved inappropriately toward you, please contact an administrator via Private Message immediately. We take reports against our staff extremely seriously and will handle any and all complaints with complete discretion. Please keep any records of inappropriate behavior and send them along with your initial report (screenshots, chat logs, etc).
