I would assume that too but you could ask Duke? I don't think Duke would be able to make these changes without being granted access by UD..

I've heard that Duke has direct contact with UD and he's been giving him access to get serious things done around chatlands - Not 100% sure on that though, just something I've heard. I'll get the person/people I've heard this from to post here with more info if I can :>

BUT I also know that he's been given alpha rank on multiple different chatsites (temporarily) to get rid of predators and other high threat users, then once the work is done he gets demoted and moves onto the next chat.

Duke and Underdog are working on getting sites shut down that violate the Chatlands terms of service, as well as pursing individuals who are breaking some serious rules. Underdog is aware of what Duke is doing. The details of the situation are up to Underdog to reveal or not.

It just makes me a bit uneasy when seeing chats being messed with without anyone knowing what was going on. To me, it looked like a hack.

They aren't hacks, I can assure you that much. Underdog is fully aware of what is going on.

Well I get that now, but not letting the public know anything really sets off anxiety in people.

It's actually really nice to see that UD is letting someone do this. This might be what we have been waiting for, tbh? I know a lot of people have wanted UD to clean up the chats, myself included. I just didn't see reason for them to be sitting there collecting dust. Especially since it was very apparent that a lot of them were breaching TOS and conduct rules.

But I also agree with Messi a bit.. it wouldn't have been nice to know about it LOL

I understand where you are coming from, but if people are told that someone is going to look into their legality, they would probably try to cover their tracks. A food inspector doesn't announce that they've come, you just have to always anticipate it by following protocol.
