Many of the previous Ops are unknown, and for others start or end dates are uncertain. Before the formation of the Department of Moderators, Community Admins were also Ops be default. Until November 2011, Ops reported to the Mistress of Chat, but when Miriya stepped down, it was decided that an intermediary position was not required. It was decided at the Fall 2013 Admin Meeting that it was not necessary to have different Ops for each room, and that the Ops would be global. It was also decided at the same time that there would be rotating terms for Chat Ops.

In September 2020, the Department of Moderators and Operators was disbanded, and Chat Operators were transferred to the Department of Technology. In January 2022 it was moved again, and now exist outside of the departmental structure.
