When using the Networking and Chat feature you can appoint moderators to manage your chat channels.
Moderators can mute users (other users will not see their messages) and edit / delete messages.
If a user creates their own channel they will automatically be made a moderator of that channel. This means sponsors, panelists, presenters and others can create and moderate their own channels as needed.
