Today, the Telegram group is left online as a convenience to older members who choose to use it. However, it is not officially advertised or endorsed by RITlug eboard.
Before switching to Slack, RITlug advertised a Telegram group and IRC channel. After switching to Slack and setting up a bridge, RITlug only advertised the Slack. However, the Telegram group and IRC channel were kept online for convenience. The work to maintain a bridge across all groups was simple: run a bot and forget. Since this is easy to maintain, we chose to support the bridge.
RIT and RITlug club policy determine moderation policies. This document is not a policy document, so it is not covered.
Once available, a link to those public policy documents should go here.
The following instructions are shown on the official Telegram Desktop application. If you are using another platform (iOS, Android, web, etc.), the instructions may differ.
There are two types of administrator actions: updating administrator list and taking moderation action.
Update administrator list¶
Existing administrators with the correct permission can add other administrators. See the Administrator list for a list of existing administrators.
Follow these steps to add a @ritlug new administrator.
Take moderation action¶
If you need to take moderation action (e.g. banning a user or deleting spam messages), use Telegram moderation tools. The quickest way to open the moderation tools is by right-clicking or long-pressing on a specific message in Telegram. If these options do not appear, try deleting the message first. If successful, an interface appears with three options to enable:
- Mark Repka (@Repkam09) (creator) 
- Nate Levesque (@thenaterhood)
- Solomon Rubin (@Serubin)
- Tim Zabel (@Tjzabel21)
- Christian Martin (@ctmartin)
- Josh Bicking (@jibby0)
- Ian Flournoy (@icflournoy)
|||Be careful about IRC spam – if you ban from the IRC spam messages, you may disable or ban the IRC bridge. Only delete individual messages or bulk-delete.|
|||Creator status is equivalent to super admin - this admin can update privileges for all other administrators.|
