if you are a mod of an area, I believe you should have access.
Never let the truth get in the way of a good story
Hence the reason I could see these wierd Darker blue posts whic apparently require moderation. And seeing as I didn't get the instructions of modship I didn't realise that I was one of few that could see them.
As for wanting to be a mod, I am happy to take on the responsibilities of a moderator, but a good moderator shouldn't actively seek modship.
One thing though, I would always be a member of the forum before being a moderator. (if that makes sense)
OK did some digging and this is straight from the vbulletin developers:
Only auto-moderate replies to moderated posts when they are explicitly chosen. This means replies to moderated posts will be moderated when:
- quoted with "quote" button
- QR button clicked
Doesn't do it in these cases any more:
- Last post moderated. Big "post reply" button clicked at end of thread.
- Last post moderated. QR with no click.
I have not had a chance to test it yet, probably won't be able to until after SEMA. But it seems like there's some logic behind it, but I'm not sure if our board acts as it was designed, or it's a bug. I'll test the behaviors above when I get a chance and see what the results are.
I think it acts as designed, ie if someone quotes a moderated post (which is what I did not realising that it was still not visible to others) then that post will also not be visible.
If it was visible then it wouldn't make sense if the original post was not.
My favorite quote...agreed.
yes, i realized last night that Bugbyte had added you, so I am adding you to the list.
I am not sure how things have been, but i think a moderator should always be a member first - these forums have been created by members and should always meet the needs of members.
As to the handbook - I wish...I could have used one as well.
Is it possible to have the 'Moderated' post highlighted in a more contrasting colour.
Ie instead of a darker shade of blue, a different colour altogether?
Just quoted another one today
