More than one moderator...

Post by ZNL » Wed Nov 22, 2017 8:57 am

I have on my forum 5 moderators. Can one moderator e.g. ban another one?

Yes. The only people who cannot be banned are founders and you shouldn't have more than one or two of those (they are all powerful so it's not a title to be given out lightly).

If you have any doubts at all about the ability of a mod not to accidentally or deliberately ban another one, they should not be a mod.

Sure... but theoretically - can the banned moderator then self cancel the ban?

No because they wouldn't be able to log in as they're banned.

If you have any reason to suspect that a Moderator would need to be banned then again they should not be a Moderator.

Alternatively don't give your Moderators banning permissions.
