Senior Moderator, abbreviated as Senior Mod or, more frequently, Sr. Mod, is a staff rank introduced on July 18th, 2014 in The Great Restructure. Senior Moderators are almost identical to Moderators, only that Senior Moderators are split into eight teams which specialize in maintaining and helping a specific sector of Mineplex. There are currently 77 Senior Moderators.
To achieve the Senior Moderator rank, one must be a Moderator and have shown an exceptional job at doing what they do, and when a position is open, they may apply to a team of their interest. Alternatively, leaders of said teams may recruit members with no application necessary. Depending on the team they oversee, Admins will review the applicants and choose who is best for the role. Once achieved, the player earns the orange (formerly silver) SR MOD tag. On forums, they will also receive the tag of their respective team.

Clans Management Edit
Clans Management specifically handles all matters related to the Champions game Clans, including Quality Assurance, gameplay testing, map development, in-game and forums moderation, and rule enforcement. In the past, the team had a golden tag that said C.MOD, but this has since been changed. The current members of CM are a mix of past members and promoted members of the old CM Subteam after CM was reverted back to a Sr.Mod team. CM now has an internal subteam, called CMA. The CM lead/manager is mepman9.
