    Question Pretending to be a mod for a video illegal?

    I saw this one small Growtopia content creator, and he basically did this video where he bought the special featured YouTuber blocks, and then Went to brag that he's a moderator, and had the people believing that he was actually a Moderator. Isn't this Illegal? Because he's saying that Pretending to be a mod is perfectly legal? I won't name the guy, but he has 2,5 k subs, and his name starts with T.

    You should P.m a Moderator or a Forum guardian and share further information with them. These types of threads are unnecessary since we can't really help you but yes, pretending to be a moderator in-game is against the rules.

    Yes it’s illegal. I remember one of our famous Youtuber did that with Jenuine’s set and he got banned for a few days.

    I think I remember this.

    It's still impersonating even it's just a joke. Not illegal if it's a skit.

    It was not a skit, it was real, He didn't even say it was a prank, he said that he'll just go nuke some more casinos and then left. People even took selfies and all

    First of all, singling out is illegal.
    Second of all, are you referring to the 2.5k subs youtuber or to the youtuber who was banned by Jenuine?

    Hey, we shall look into this.
    And yes, moderator impersonation warrants permanent suspension. We won't know when something is a joke, so please, be careful.
