Special Ranked members allowed to moderate profiles

Post by Guest on January 7th 2011, 9:06 am

Not sure if this is a bug or this is suppose to happen.. but.. Members that are assigned with "special ranks" are also allowed to moderate users profiles. There is no permission options to allow certain ranks (such as moderators only) to moderator the profiles, so that we can assign only certain "special rank" members with that ability. There is only permission options for different parts of the forums/blogs, not profiles.

*Note: I have 8 ranks on my forum on "auto-subscribe". I have separate members on my forum called "EN Artist". I want EN Artist members to have their own rank image only. The only way I found that possible is by making a "Special rank" and using my preferred image, then making an EN Artist member have that special rank so that he/she may have that custom rank displaying. This is when I noticed that these members were allowed to moderate anyone's profiles fields.

If those members with the special rank are in the group with mod powers even on only 1 forum and you have this settings on your profile field:
Admin panel > Users & Groups > Profile > 'Who can modify the field value : Set to moderators

They will have the permission. Have you tried checking this?

Yes, I do allow certain profile fields to be adjusted by moderators.

I think that's the problem. I had set them to moderate their own forum, just 1 area of the site. However their is no options on removing their ability to moderate other members profile fields in the permissions options. I'll make a suggestion on this I suppose.

As I'd mentioned, if you had this settings:
Admin panel > Users & Groups > Profile > 'Who can modify the field value : Set to moderators

And a member is in the group who can moderate a forum, they will have the power to do it.

Yes, as I mentioned, that is the problem I'm having. Clearly this is nonadjustable so I made it a suggestion: Click Here!
