Hi Chops,

I have a couple questions about forum moderation.

As the guild my site is for grows... I have had several volunteers to help administrate my forums. I found the security setting for forum moderators but it seems that they cannot delete posts made by moderators at their same level. This is causing threads to be stuck on the forums until I personally get in their to delete them.

1. Am I setting permissions incorrectly?
2. Is there a way for a forum moderator as security privieleges indicate can delete an entire thread?

3. My envisionment for the forums would be where moderators are givin full rights over all forum functions including deleting entire threads but ONLY forum functions without giving the keys to the kingdom away. Is there a way to do this?

No, you're not doing anything wrong.

That's actually a hot topic that you mention. One of my bigger internal debates...

Should someone be able to delete posts by someone of higher authority?

However, if someone is considered a "Forum Moderator," they've probably earned your trust enough to know that they aren't going to go psycho and start deleting everything.

And of right now, the only way to delete a whole thread is to delete every post in it. Kind of tedius, I agree, and with some of the forum tweaks coming, there will be the option to destroy a thread.

The day Microsoft makes a product that doesn't suck is the day they make a vacuum cleaner.

It's all in the reflexes.
Thanks for the info chops...

I think your right about if you trust someone as a forum moderator than they earned the web admins trust already. If they did go wild the web admin can always remove the moderator.

If that doesn't work for all... maybe a checkmark box for the web admin for a secure only I can delete type post. Since I don't know code like you though I don't know if that is even possible... just throughing idea's out .

As always... thanks for the support
