    Great idea for the "off duty mod" badge! It definitely feels like once you are a mod, you cannot interact with the stream ever again like a normal chatter, and you always need to be "working" when you're watching.

    Sometimes I just want to go in and relax with the stream and not have the pressure of being in charge or having to police people.

    The problem is that if I show up in the moderator list as a mod, and I DON'T do the things I normally do, people could think that those things are now allowed. Also if I'm in the list and showing up as a mod, other mods could imagine I'm working and not do anything, when I really just want to rest.

    Right now the answer is ... I don't go in the stream I mod for unless I'm going to mod. Which is a bummer.
