Admin Powers, NEED HELP!

Solved Admin Powers, NEED HELP!

Post by isoulcalibur on December 20th 2010, 2:01 am

A person has assigned me the rank "Admin" to me.

Although I am an admin, I am not the founding admin.

How do I access my admin powers?
I do not see a panel, no buttons, or anything for me to edit.

The guy that assigned me admin is the founding admin, and he still is an admin.

But still, how do I access my admin powers?

I need help on how to:

Ban people
Give people a warning level
edit boards
Create new boards
edit others profiles

and all that other stuff.

So, could someone help me out here?

Tell him that he needs to check the order of the groups. Admins should be order 1

It says the group order is 2.

Even though, the group order is 2, under my name, it says I'm an admin.

Even he's in that group and he has admin powers.

The group says "Moderators" but it says i'm an admin.

any reason for this?

EDIT: THE ORDER IS GROUP 1.
Sorry for that!

The group is named Moderators, but if yuo join that group you are an ADMIN!

somebody tell me whats wrong, why can't i access admin panel?

If you have the rank that says 'Administrator' but your not on the actual group of the admins, you won't gain access to the admin panel.

If you have the rank that says 'Administrator' but your not on the actual group of the admins, you won't gain access to the admin panel.
But that wouldn't make sense! The group moderator is ordered number 1.
and plus, the founder is in the group, and it's the only group.

Even if the mod group is in order no. 1 but it's not the admin group and even if the founder is there, you won't still have the admin access, you will need to be added on the real admin group(may be hidden). I suggest you to contact your Founder.
