[Forum] Usergroup Leader Powers

Postby GreecePwns on Sun Oct 21, 2007 7:00 am

Concise description:
  • The leaders of User Groups and Clans should have all the moderation powers of normal Mods, but only within their hidden forum.

Specifics:
  • They should be able to sticky threads, unsticky threads, merge threads, delete polls, edit posts, delete posts...ect.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • It will help User Group and Clan Forums be able to have more freedom and become more organized.

Hecter is correct. With the current version of phpBB, only "Administrators" can do certain things.

I don't think he likes tampering with the forum code. He could risk bringing down that section of the site.

One soulution to this is by having some stickies in each clan forum that includes links to all relevant thread.

Eg. in KOE I have a stickie called Training school

when you click on it it contains links to the following threads within the forum some of which are a few pages down and are difficult to find.

- mentoring programme

- doubles training sign up

- tips and techniques from high rankers

- plugins and addons for dummies

so in effect i have created a training sub forum via this stickie.

That is a MAJOR mod to the system - many have tried, many have failed.

You essentially have to re-do the entire subsystem of phpBB to allow what are, for all intents and purposes, multiple individual forums running on one database with limited admin powers for multiple users in certain spaces.

Believe me, I have wanted this hack for years, nobody can make it work for phpBB. It was done for vBulletin a few years back but was squashed because it was considered illegal due to the fact that you could run unlimited forums on one license...which holds true for phpBB as well (even though it's free)

Would love to do it. Can't.

Therefore I would strongly advise clans to follow my suggestion regarding "index stickies" that will in effect sort your forum into sub forums. For most clans these would do it:
    Challenges and tournaments

    Games

    Forum Games and Spam

    Adminstration

    General Discussion

    Welcome messages

    Stats and records

    Training School


once any thread is formed in your forum the person managing these stickies adds a link. A similar idea to this already exists in the foundre and suggestions forum here.

I think it would be nice to give full mod powers to mods in their forum (delete and edit posts, basically...).

With phpBB 3.0 this may be possible, but not until then.

Mod Powers in Sub-Forums

Postby Dancing Mustard on Thu Mar 27, 2008 10:12 am

Back in the dreamtime of phpbb2, Twill told me that the upgrade would permit usergroup leaders to have mod-powers in their clan sub-forums. Is that still the case? If so, how long till we get to weild them?

Once we get most of the kinks worked out of everything, we'll start to look into more minor things, such as that. :) Hang tight, and have a banana.

Well it's been a while, and the kinks appear to be gone. Any progress?

When do clan leaders get the ability to rule with iron fists? This is a nice easy change to make, click the buttons and make it so.
