A Forum Moderator is a player selected by Jagex to enforce the RuneScape Forums' rules. They have the power on the forums to lock & unlock threads, edit thread titles, hide/unhide threads & posts, move threads from one subforum to another, and finally they can temporarily ban users from the forums. Currently there are 283 of them [1].

Forum Moderators have a green background and green crown File:Fmod crown.png beside their name when they post on the forums. They have no powers in-game and do not receive any further benefits. Other types of moderators include Player Moderators and Jagex Moderators.
