Default Forum Permissions set to "All" by default.

Post by Alexander Moore on August 17th 2012, 9:11 am

I find myself spending extra time always changing the default permissions for viewing links and pictures from "Administrators" to "All". I don't believe that the "Administrators" setting is anywhere close to being the most popular, so I believe it should be set to a default position of "All", or at least "Members". People just don't post pictures or links to just be viewed by Administrators only. They want everyone using the forum to see them, or it's kind of pointless to them.

I even find support forum topics from people who can't understand why their stuff is being hidden. It would probably put one more recurring topic away for good, so the mods here can focus on other things.

Default settings should be decided according to what is the most popular / routine setting. That's all I'm saying. It's a small issue really, but just thought I'd say it.

Members might be a more popular decision. I myself don't like forcing anyone to sign up to see things, and I post a lot of info that is intended for guests to see, but other forums may see that differently.

What I know for sure is that Administrators and Moderators settings are really only for special forums Admin / Mod forums. Point is, most of the forums we make aren't meant to be mod or admin exclusive, so the default needs to be updated.

I got to say yes to this, since there's a lot of members that have this problem, and once they are told how to change it back, they ask if there's this option and i feel really bad if they have a lot of forums and 1 administrator. Yes, for me.
