Re: Granting Private Forum Moderator Privileges to Clan Leaders

Unless Lack and Twill don't feel that the clan leaders can use the power responsibly. Which, to be honest, I can think of only 3 or 4 clan leaders who would be guaranteed to use the power properly. They have to decide if they really want the potential mess it could create on their hands.

Potential mess? Just don't give them the power to move threads or Change Posters (which only admins can do now). And no announcement posting power.

What about editing posts even if it's just to be funny? Merging threads, deleting threads, splitting threads. It can all be abused, and WILL be at some point. I promise it.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have the ability to do a little spring cleaning in the G1 forum, but I don't expect it to happen anytime soon.

Right, they could totally f*ck up their own forum, but, its their forum. I say, let them do with it what they wish.

Blake has a point, if people want to abuse and mess around with their own usergroups, they'll just lose out in the long run.

I've notified Lack about the topic. I know he wants to increase clan membership and begin working on more clan specific things, so perhaps this is a good first step in that direction. He'll most likely review it over the next couple of days. We'll see...

I had a discussion with lack as well, after fixing the problem of Leaders being able to view IP's he said this would probably be waiting until January, when Twill returns from vacation.

Yeah, this is completely necessary.
But I don't think a poll is, who would not want this?
I guess I'll have one just to show how many people want it then.

yeah, you've had to deal with clan issues for what, all of a week? if that? i can only imagine how chock-full-o dead threads your forum is, and how many times you've had to stay up creating private games for in-clan battles... :roll: :roll: :roll: the black jesus is amused...-0

p.s.-it will get done when it gets done.

Less then a week but I have a friend that enjoys making threads to annoy me and then logging off. With this I would be able to delete it right?

Yes.

It will be done when it gets done, but I'm pushing to have it done sooner than later (as well as the OTIS stuff)

just weighing in as a clan leader...this would be a wonderful addition to clans & their leaders...and although i see what Optimus Prime is saying, i think most, if not all clan leaders could be trusted with these permissions, and like others have pointed out, the forums are private & any f*ckups would only affect the clan, not CC as a whole...
