The Content Moderator user group is a new user group that was officially released across wikia on the 14th January 2016. In some ways it is similar to the Assistant user group, a custom user group that was officially released on the Enyclopedia SpongeBobia on the 20th February 2015, and C.Syde's Wiki on the 30th April 2015.
