Moderators are Habitica users, both staff and non-staff, that monitor the content and the conversations in the Tavern. They can often be found answering questions and helping keep the Tavern safe and friendly for everyone.
Recognizing Moderators EditModerators' names are colored purple with a crown icon (for staff) or in blue with a star icon (for non-staff moderators). It's Bailey is the only exception; she is a non-staff moderator but her name is black with a green flag because she is also an NPC. All moderators are listed just under the Pause Damage button on the right side of the Tavern Chat interface for the website.
Contacting Moderators Edit
Several features will alert Moderators. If you encounter spam or other violations of Community Guidelines in Chat you should flag the posts. Reporting a bug or requesting features each have links under the Help toolbar. For issues that do not clearly fall into one any of these categories, use the adaptive form labeled Contact the Moderation Team under the Help toolbar.
Staff Moderators Edit
Non-Staff Moderators Edit
It's BaileyEditBailey is an NPC who bravely took on the moderator role to boot and assists with Transifex administration. She is the town crier, but she also enjoys socializing in the Tavern when she has time and enabling fun avenues for Habiticans to interact. She, along with deilann, is actually a bot. But we love her more than space. And we love space a lot.
Alys EditAlys has contributed to programming and is a Habitica Wiki admin, but might be best known for creating the Data Display Tool. She can often be found in the Tavern, answering more technical questions and wielding her mod-hammer. Alys probably has more animals than any other moderator, but deilann's cat is definitely cuter. She has a horde of possums and is sometimes an apple. See Alys's Contributor Spotlight.
BladeEditBlade is an awesome programmer who regularly helps new folks get acquainted with coding and Habit's technologies. He is known for his patience and enthusiasm. He is also known for once running through the halls of Habitica screaming, "I AM LEGEND." Because he was, in fact, legendary. Others should learn from his example. This kind of behavior is encouraged. See Blade's Contributor Spotlight
Breadstrings EditBreadstrings is often present in the Tavern, but her major contributions have been to the wiki, of which she is an admin. She probably has more people than anyone else ask her where her name comes from... which you can learn about in her Habit profile now. However, like every superhero, Breadstrings has a weakness which is often exploited by the residents of Habitica: *whispers* adorable hamsters. Use this knowledge wisely.
Cantras EditCantras is a mod of many mysteries. Few people know that if Cantras were queen, the world would be a better place. For example, women's clothing sizes would make sense. Her queenly attributes can be seen by her regal administration of the ever popular Habitversary challenge and blog. But there's more. So much more. No, I'm not going to tell you. You'll just have to imagine. See Cantras's Contributor Spotlight.
deilann v* Editbest item in the game. deilann's display name used to be Ryan, a name he still uses and responds to, but will not highlight chat messages for him or inspire him to greatness.
Dewines EditDue to joining Habitica on the 1st of April a couple of years ago, Dewines spent her first day as a warrior onion. Strangely, that didn't put her off and now she can be found in a number of guilds, socialising and running challenges. She is currently Captain of the Habitican Pirates and moonlights as an Elf, seeking out lost, orphaned or dead challenges. She also pops into the Tavern several times a day. Dewines lives in Wales, which is the sticky-out bit on the left hand side of the Island of Great Britain, and is very fond of daffodils and dragons. See Dewines's Contributor Spotlight.
Fox_town EditFox_town signed up for habitica based on some mentions in comments at The Toast, and quickly realized that her love of Looking Things Up (and its corollary, Knowing the Right Answer) meant she could be helpful in the tavern. Her task list is a constant battle against procrastination in favor of doing the many interesting things she actually wants to do (why is this even a struggle?!), but her top recommended habit to improve quality of life is "don't get mad at someone on the internet". Fox_town will always choose a lemon dessert over a chocolate dessert. She loves microcontrollers, bread, and snow.
Megan is a pixelist, but she enjoys helping out in other ways as well. You can usually find her in the Tavern or in the Pixels in Progress guild, but right now she is on a hiatus to take care of other things. She still has one of the biggest hearts in Habitica, though, and we greatly anticipate her return! We will bake her digital vegan cupcakes. See Megan's Contributor Spotlight.
shanaqui mostly got here by helping out in the Tavern and Newbies guild (now known as the Habitica Help: Ask a Question guild), and suppressing their unfortunate tendency to snark. Probably most people on Habitica, if not the world in general, know shanaqui's thing is books and they have run many related challenges (including an ongoing monthly one about Climbing Mount TBR). shanaqui's preferred pronoun is 'they/them/their', and they are helped in all socialite/moderating duties by a small grey bunny called Hulk who runs free wherever she wishes and needs a Habit not to beg for so many treats. (But shanaqui hasn't gone as far as making her a Habitica account yet. Somehow they don't think she'd find it motivating.) See shanaqui's Contributor Spotlight.
In a community as big as Habitica, users come and go, and sometimes a moderator needs to lay down their noble mantle and relax. The following are Moderators Emeritus. They no longer act with the power of a Moderator, but we would still like to honor their work!
