Mod Powers 2010-04-03 18:53:05


Please excuse me putting wikiG stuff on General, but this IS a subject the regulars will be interested in...
Our monthly theme/competition is Newgrounds Moderators. We have a basic page on most of them and we would like to finish the set. Furthermore, we would like more info, not just the basic stuff you can see on thier Userpage, but this and that from BBS posts, their own websites, etc.
Please, no nasty stuff or controvesial stuff without refs.

THIS will take you to our Newgrounds Moderator page, which you are welcome to improve too.

I would particularly like info on Moderators powers- what options do they have? Obviously they can ban people - can only Wade permaban people? They can lock threads. I gather Wade can reset users Experience- any thing else? (with ref links please)

Aiming for over 300 pages this month!!!!

I won't reply on this thread as we don't want to be thought of as bumping when we have our OWN CLUB THREAD,
However if YOU lot bump it, thats down to you!
Thanks


We are the Dragons & Spirits. We are friendly people. Best Wishes, Ice!

only admins, and Wade is the community admin, so yes.

lol:
For example, Rig became a forum moderator after the Sirtom Incident, which he played an important part in.

yeah, that's totally why rig, who by then was an audio-moderator, also was given BBS-modship.

the whole point by leaving regulars out on some information is simply because IT'S NOT FOR REGULAR USERS TO KNOW. You guys know what you NEED to know, nothing more.

BBS mods can delete pictures in posts. They can also delete forum signatures. They also have a tool to see if you were banned in the past. Don't forget that besides deleting threads, they can also destroy them, bannin everyone who posting. People affected by this will get the generic "blah blah this only fuels the flames" etc etc.

This is everything I know, good luck with your research.

Wade posts some info in this thread. But, since the consensus on mod powers is to avoid transparency, good luck :)

most important mod-power is that we've got the power to remove fun from the BBS.

What is the maximum number of days a mod can ban a person? The highest I have seen is 32.

There has to be a limit, because if there wasn't then you could basically permaban people right?

Anyway I think its 90 days but I'm not sure.

Well I haven't used that for several months now, since there's not anything fun to remove these days.
