Jagex Moderators, also known as Staff Moderators, Jagex Mods, JMods, or admins, are employees working for Jagex Ltd. Jagex Moderator accounts are only used for work purposes such as play-testing, debugging, and dealing with in-game situations.

Jagex Moderators also have access to certain tools to aid in community events or quality assurance that players do not have access to, such as the rotten potato, egg, cabbage, carrot, and strawberry. For security, employees can only login to a Jagex Moderator account while connected to a designated server. A selection of Moderators often appear on the weekly Old School RuneScape live stream where they discuss recent events, answer player-submitted questions, and show off upcoming updates.

Jagex Moderator accounts will always have a gold crown (Jagex moderator emblem.png) beside their name when talking in public and private game chat and a gold background when posting on the forums. Jagex Moderator usernames will always begin with "Mod" with the exception of Paul, Ian, and Andrew, the creators of RuneScape. Additionally, Jagex has also made it so that players' names cannot begin or have the word 'Mod' in their name to prevent confusion and potential scamming among players (i.e. Rule 5, which is Jagex staff impersonation).
