Moderation is a game settings feature introduced in The Jackbox Party Pack 7. It allows human moderators to join your game and approve or reject content before it is shown on screen. We are hopeful this setting, along with the profanity filtering setting, will provide a little bit of extra safety when playing games with strangers.
Moderation is available for the following games in Pack 7:
- Quiplash 3
- Champ'd Up
- Talking Points
To enable Moderation, navigate to your game settings menu and toggle Moderation on. When you do this a password code will be generated (you'll want to hide this from the public if you're streaming). You can then tell your mods to go to mod.jackbox.tv and enter that password to join the game. As long as that setting is enabled when the game room is created, mods can join at any point during game play. Any user generated content will now go to your moderator(s) for review before being approved to appear in game. Rejected answers will either be replaced by game provided content or appear as a no answer, depending on the game.
If you have any feedback on moderation and how we can improve this feature moving forward, please open a support ticket.
