2 min read

PAC Protocol is streamlining its business operations, focusing on transparent communications, abandoning the ban hammer, and engaging the community to improve our products, our outreach, and everyone's PAC experience.

Unbanning users
As one of the first changes, we are abandoning the ban hammer from the public Discord. All previously banned members will be unbanned and welcomed back into the Discord server. Discord will be returned to a place of open dialogue with and moderated by the community.

Community Moderation
Community moderation will be accomplished by deploying a bot that monitors community reactions to messages on Discord. Using designated reactions the community can remove messages, timeout users (24 hours), kick the user, or ban the user (14 days).

The following reactions will be enabled on launch of the bot: (Amount of reactions needed is subject to change)


Rules updated
With these changes the rules moderated by our official moderators need change. The rules are there to protect the users from scammers and will provide guidelines for a respectful conversation. The new rules can be viewed in the #rules channel.
