Abuse Management#

our matrix instance has a moderation tool mjolnir.


you are welcome to join to report people for inappropriate behavior.

to protect your own room from known spammers and evil accounts:

  • invite and give the user admin Permissions.


    if you do not want to give admin rights then you need to change the room permission Change Server ACL to Moderator. With this setting, only needs moderator permissions.

  • the abuse moderators then receive the invitation and needs to confirm it.

after this step, the room is protected.
