Can mods edit my post just as it is now? Not yet set my main posting account to mod level yet while I was testing this out so don't know as is just my admin account and a registered user account
Make a subforum for the editable messages, and another for the non-editable messages, set the permissions correctly, and post the messages in the correct subforum.Scottish2 wrote: ↑Fri Jan 11, 2019 6:47 pmIs this possible through a setting or perhaps an extension to let an admin chose what posts of his/hers that a mod can edit or not?
Like for instance I want to add a welcome message that will include a team roster but if I do it I assume the mod can not edit my admin post.
So is there some way to select what if any messages mods can edit of mine. Most I would not want them to edit but the team welcome messages I would want them to be able to update their roster list as they gain new members!
Actually seems to be a default setting as I haven't changed any of the mod settings and I just noticed in my posting account which I set as a mod account for the time being and I can edit my admin posts so must be a default setting.
AH OK yeah as I was in my posting account which is only set as a mod nothing more and I saw it let me into the ban control settings for the admin account. I didn't go further then that just in case but it let me in to select what style of ban and such!! Just never saved that.
Yeah see my case we have 18 teams (Mine included) so I have 17 other team leaders plus one general as it were and I want them to have the ability to moderate their teams and such but also due to the nature of the forum to be able to provide moderation in other areas of the forum in case there is trouble.KevC wrote: ↑Fri Jan 11, 2019 9:24 pmIndeed.
The trick is to run the site with a few staff as you can. If you have one forum that's relatively quiet, it doesn't need 4 mods for instance. Give just enough power to just enough people to keep it ticking along nicely. It's often far fewer than you might think but it does depend on the nature of the site. I've got a site with 30,000 members and it's run entirely by only 2 people. On the flip side I've got one with 1000 people but 20 mods because there are several sub-clubs and each one has a mod to look after it. Also, never make someone a mod if they ask to be one. They're usually the worst power hungry people.
