Solved Groups Administration Meltdown

Post by V_the_Grey_Beard on November 27th 2014, 1:18 am

This is the issue I'm having I'm actually a member of an alliance for an MMORTS and we currently have I believe it is 5 or 6 alliances total across different servers and game worlds. Every one of these alliances uses Forumotion for the alliance forum, in all these alliance forum every single one of them is having the same "security" issue. If we simply make someone a moderator they don't have the rights to give group rights to others, currently this is forcing us to use the administration group to give our other alliance leaders a way to adjust ranks. The problem with this is by doing so we give these members the ability to give themselves the Ruler group rights. How can I can get around this problem because it's a serious issue we face for our alliances if an untrustworthy member has been given these administrator rights then they turn around and make themselves a Ruler and destroy our forum.

Only the group moderator can add or remove members from groups.

1: your forum can always be backed up so they cant destroy it even if they wanted 2

and the best way to do this is probably threw groups .. set up a groups moderator and they can invite people to the group to give them rights
