Solved How do I protect myself, the moderator, from my admins banning me?

Post by Herra on April 6th 2012, 3:25 am

Hi Forumotion staff members! I need help on this topic, please. I have two admins and I selected them on my administrator usergroup, obviously cause they're admins. But I noticed that they can enter the admin panel and change everything on it if they want to. I also found out they can also delete my account and ban me. I'm a moderator and also the founder of the forum. How do I protect myself from getting banned from the admins who dislike me? Urgent! Thank you! ;]

If you do not what these members to have that kind of access then remove them from the group. There is no way to limit access to administrators.

Edit:
You could hide the original administrator group and create a second administrator group. Give the second group moderating permissions for the whole forum. The second group will not have access to the administration panel.

How do I make a second group and give them moderator power for the forum but not the panel? I know how to make a "fake" group, but just not the mod power part. Will they still have banning power of other normal users, then?

Check the box for moderate in each category and forum for the second group.

Administration Panel > General > Forum > Categories & Forums

If other moderator groups have the abillity to ban, then yes the second group will, too.
