In short; I propose the Developers make it so the predefined groups can be edited entirely, other than being deleted. Further than their color and position in the staff legend. Their names should be allowed to be changed, whether or not they should appear in “The Team”, and they should be allowed to be set to hidden. Without having to edit with any of the files, despite how simple that may be. Because something so little is such a step backwards in the name of becoming more user friendly
I'm against this feature, in fact I'm even against being able to delete predefined groups.
A simple reason for this is that the documentation has to cater for situations recognisable on every single board and using predefined groups is a prerequisite in order to explain the whole group system (and permissions interaction) in the documentation.
If you want groups with similar (or the same) permissions, you can easily copy the group and give it another name, and NOT use the predefined groups (even make them invisible to members).
I never proposed deleting them. I think that would potentially cause problems.
I don’t agree in the slightest, and frankly I find that to be rather condescending. Are you implying that being allowed to edit the predefined groups short of deleting them, would cause someone to not understand their roles?
Frankly I find that to be asinine. Being able to change their names, choosing them to be visible or not in “the team” list, or setting them to be hidden from member’s view would not effect anything you said at all. A user would have to understand what those groups mean first, and how to even make their way to the group management section in the ACP, before being able to make those changes anyway.
It is a standard feature in essentially all forum software to be able to at least change the name, and set the visibility settings to the rest of the forum of the root user groups, you have been able to do this since phpbb2, granted you could not change the staff legend without editing the files then.
I want to edit the predefined groups without having to go into the language files, and just because they can’t be seen on the staff legend, you can’t set them to hidden and they will still appear in “The Team” list
