members with special rights can't delete posts made by an admin

Post by ChadmStraight on Thu Oct 16 2008, 01:38

To start you off with my suggestion, i will try to help you understand my situation.

I have two special ranks on my forum:
Admin -#1
Moderators - #2
heres the deal, I'm the creator of the forum, and a moderator decided to delete a post I made. That ticked me off. I can punish him, but that doesnt prevent that from happening in the future with another moderator.

So, my suggestion is allow an on/off option to where a member with special permissions cant delete a post, or any thing else made by a member that out ranks him.

If you can already do this, please explain. I tried searching for it, but i cant find anything on it.

I completely agree. Moderations should be handed down, not up.

Lets say you have done mistakes in your post and lets say you provide links which expire, or no longer exist and a moderator finds out.. cant he moderate?
Its really nice.. But come on...

To start off, I voted yes, BUT it really isn't something I would put at the top of the techy's list of things to do. If you have a moderator deleting your stuff for no reason and you don't like it, then you obviously made a wrong choice in giving them moderating powers if they can't be trusted.

I personally don't see your point. If they can edit your post, can't they just delete all text and leave an empty thread? Isn't that kind of worse than a deleted thread because now users will go in and see nothing as opposed to not going in at all.

I voted yes. Very reasonable idea that supports the forum`s "power" positions. Moderators shouldnt cross Admins, Admins shouldnt cross Founder.
