Post by: Newrace on Fri 18 May 2007 13:46:46
What are Administrators?
Administrators control the entire board. They can determine every aspect of the board including: setting permissions, banning users, creating user groups, choosing moderators, etc. They also share all moderator capabilities in all the forums.

A forum administrator typically has the ability to edit, delete, move or otherwise modify any thread on the forum. Administrators also usually have the ability to close the board, change major software items, change global skins, modify the board, and ban, delete, or create members. Moderator privileges are often able to be delegated to other forum members. Moderators have a smaller subset of powers, which may include editing, deleting, and moving threads, mass pruning, warning members for offenses, and changing minor forum details.

What are Moderators?
Moderators monitor the forums' activity on an ongoing basis. They edit and delete posts as well as lock, unlock, move, delete and split topics. Moderators are there to prevent people going off-topic or posting abusive or offensive content.

Mods are generally invited or recruited by the Admins by virtue of their participation, knowledge, helpfullness to other members, and good natured attitude. The Admins are all experienced forum moderators.

How do I become a Usergroup Moderator?
Usergroups are created by the board administrator who also assigns a board moderator for each. If you are interested in creating a usergroup please contact the administrator.

What are Usergroups?
Usergroups is how the forum maintains the organization of its users. A user may belong to several groups, each with different access privileges.
