Moderating open organizations

Zulip aims to be the best chat possible for open organizations. Moderation is a big part of making an open community work.

In the works

  • Mark as spam. This will allow non-admins to collectively impose a temporary ban on a user.
  • Delete spammer. This will wipe the user from your Zulip, by deleting all their messages and reactions, banning them, etc.
  • Mute user. This will allow an individual user to hide the messages of another individual user.
  • New users join as guests. This will allow users joining via open registration to have extremely limited permissions by default, but still enough permissions to ask the core team a question or to get a feel for your community.
  • Public archive. This will give a read-only view of selected streams, removing the need in some organizations for having open registration.
