mod abilites (normal members might be confused)

Post by Grand Admiral Thrawn » 2002-07-10 05:35pm

1. Shouldn't there be a merge option? We have a split option.

2. An Admin forum. You know, to discuss things in private. Might not want one though.

3. Should mods be given the ability to give out temp bans? Do you want to keep that power so it doesn't get abbussed or let mods ban? Might be discussed in a admin forum.

Seems reasonable

OK by me...

Defenitely not. Look what happened to SB. People get banned for the dumbest little things.

Also, one of the SB mods is now a moderator here (Lordchaos). YOu wouldn't want him banning someone at SB and then deciding to ban them here for good measure, even though they had not actually done anything banable on this board.

1. Hmmmm It could Giive Yee To much power.. I FORBID IT! :!:


2. Those of the knowledged must always have a place of refuge aginst the idiocys of modern day sometimes. This shall be fine with me

3. Temp Bans? Hmm though my mind thinks this a somewhat good idea it would be as effective as a real ban
Oh and I don't the BBI board allows for just temp bans(You can maunal ban somone then unban them a week later but its weak at best)

Know that only I know that which should be know that I know that would will never be know by me!

As for the double topics

.... Prehaps, but the agian that would only work if somone hard posted both topics at the same time otherwise its shear idiociy on the part of the second topic starter who should have looked around to see it there already was a topic by that name

Temporary bans sound reasonable for small offenses. As it is now, I guess you would have to go back and unban a member if you wanted to do a temp ban.

You boys most certainly should not be allowed to banpeople. I don't need to be banned both at SB and here if I do somethig wrong.
