Anj needs removing as the moderator for the Ritual Workshop, Kittycidal (Cahira), and Ashe (Othar) need putting there. They are the Lord Arcane and High Ritualist respectively.

Faction Command: Add andy d

High Command: Karl needs removing, add andy d and Mark F.

Just out of mild interest whats the difference between High Command and Faction Command?

Give Kittycidal group leader access on the Arcane board, also add me to it.

Chancellory: Dargathi (Yal) needs the group leader, and the whole group needs cleaning up.

Delete the group forum 'The New Daily Trickster', its coming up 5 years since the last post.

Thanks.

I need removing from the ritualist ley and I can't see it to check, but I should have been removed as moderator on training and skills and whoever has taken over from me put in charge.

Most of these groups can and should be managed by the current members managing themselves and each other via the options on their "My Profile" pages.

If they don't know how, now is a great time for self education.
You don't need anyone else to do it for you.

(Apart from who are Moderators)

Fairly sure that group leaders need to be done by the red people.

Chancellory: This is a closed group, new members can only join upon invitation of a group leader.

Faction Command: This is a closed group, new members can only join upon invitation of a group leader.

High Command: This is a closed group, new members can only join upon invitation of a group leader.

So actually most of what I asked for cant be managed by the bar on the side, so there is nothing to actually learn.

Correct. The current group leader should add you and promote any new group leaders (there can be more then one group leader).

Well on this forum software, if configured correctly (which I expect it is) the Forum group leader can replace themselves with someone else.

But it's better done by a red person

"Oh no it isn't" :-)


No, really, Admins are few and far between and do have other stuff to do. As you note, all group membership can be happily handled by those who are members, Which means they can do it when and as they need, not hoping none of the Admins class users are all on holiday etc. Or, more to the point, know that people should be added.
These are IC related groups.

My new solution to the Moderator maintenance is to remove moderators.

Another quirk to be considered (sometimes) is that "forums" do not have members. Groups have members and some groups have permission to see certain forums.

I'm with DM on this. He or I should only be needed to do "admin magic" under rare circumstance.

As pointed out above, the leader of each "group" can and should appoint their successor.

It is MUCH better for these group leaders, who should have exact knowledge of who is in their group, to handle membership of each group than for an admin to be trying to guess. ;)

If there should be a problem with a group leader going AWOL and someone else needs to be substituted in, then please mention as that's an admin task.

If I recall correctly, Faction Command was just the 4 NPCs and High Command was the 3 in-character NPCs plus the top 3 ranking player-characters. Goes back to the old ranks and command structures. Not sure High Command has any real relevance any more.

The main problem with "cleaning things up" is that neither DM or I are the people who should be making decisions on what groups are needed or are not needed. We can make changes as requested. For example, I've deleted the daily trickster reporters, though I've left the forum itself in place, for posterity.

I'm not planning on doing so, just removed the moderator functions over that forum from people who are no longer in the Wolves. ;)
