Voice Chat Moderation

How to moderate voice chat in OpenAudioMc.

VoiceChat Moderation

Playing with your friends is fun, but some players can really sour an entire community.

We provide a handful of utilities for server moderators, allowing them to check in with players, validate reports and completely ban players from voice chat.

Please remember to enable moderation within the configuration file. You can find the option in the voice section. If you're using a proxy server, you will need to enable it on both the proxy and the backend server.

Server administrators can disable voicechat entirely from their OpenAudioMc account, if they feel it's necessary.


The inspect command (/oa voice inspect {username}) is used to manage players (online and offline). It shows a list of recent peers (other players they talked to), their current status (if they're connected) and provides a ban option (where you can kick them from their current call, and prohibit them from using voice-chat again)

Enabling Moderation Mode

Moderation mode can be enabled or disabled with the command /oa voice mod. Please note that this command requires the permissions openaudiomc.commands.voice. When moderation mode is enabled, all other moderators will receive an in-game notification (ToetMats started moderating). The player who has enabled the mode will not be visible or audible in voice chat, but can still walk up to and hear other players.

Automatic Disabling

Moderation mode has no visual artifacts or limitations. Therefore, moderators may forget to disable it after a while or use it for other purposes. To address this issue, moderation mode automatically disables itself after a configured amount of time (2 minutes by default). During the last 15 seconds of the countdown, moderators will receive an in-game reminder to extend the time if they're still using it.

We hope this explanation helps you understand how to use moderation mode in OpenAudioMc. If you have any further questions or issues, please consult the official documentation or seek help from the OpenAudioMc community. mod renew screenshot
