Chat room administrators or 'Admins'

What is a room moderator or 'admin'?

A chat room admin is distinguished by having an @ sign precede their name. A chat room 'admin' helps to control the room. They will direct the topic of conversation or control who gets to speak to the room on the microphone next.

'Admin' of chat rooms have various controls that allow them to control features and speaking order in the room. They can use the 'red dot' to control who can speak, send video, or send messages in text.  A room 'admin' can also 'bounce' or 'ban' a user from the room if they are being offensive or disruptive.

There are two types of room admins.  Regular room admins can do all of the above.  'Super' admins can also add and remove other admins of the room.  This is usually used in larger rooms where a large group of people take responsibility for keeping the room open around the clock.

With the exception of official Paltalk help lobbies and 'special feature' rooms, all rooms on Paltalk are run by ordinary users.

If you encounter poorly run chat rooms we encourage you to browse thru the list of thousands of other rooms that are available to find another chat room where you feel more comfortable.
