Note that this page is about the Moderator on the server, not on this wiki.
A Moderator is a volunteer staff member that enforces rules, regulations, and punishments over users on the Hypixel Network.
Hypixel Moderators are users that are tagged with [MOD] in a dark green color. They are staff members of the Hypixel Network and their primary role is to moderate games on the Network, through catching and punishing cheaters and those acting inappropriately. While this may be their primary role, there are many other roles that moderators also take upon such as chat-reports, forum moderation and more.
Moderators are able to give the custom mod emerald rating on the forums to players who show dedication to the server. Only Moderators are able to give this out.
It's worth noting there is no list of staff (Moderators or Helpers), and the creation of such lists are forbidden - and even then most unofficial lists are incomplete or old due to the frequent changes of the people on the staff team. It was last announced that there are around 200 staff members (Moderators or Helpers).
Moderator is the highest volunteer position on Hypixel and are required to have previously been a Helper on the network. People cannot apply for Moderator directly and must first apply for the Helper role, instead and wait for the promotion from Helper to Moderator.
Moderators cannot be promoted to an Administrator role unless they apply for and have the skill set required for that job position. Moderators' duties are to maintain the chat, forums, and games. Moderators are supposed to be role models and provide an ideal server experience for players, not talking to random Hypixel players while ignoring someone who needs help.

Some Moderators are assigned to specific Moderator Teams:
