Administrators are also usually members who volunteer their time to run the board, deal with major/minor issues, and all other admin duties.
Moderators and Administrators are here to:
- Help assist members with problems or complaints
- Keep the sections organized
- Help eliminate/ban trolls
- Assist and possibly intervene with "Hot Topics" or when personal attacks erupt on the board.
"Mods" and "Admin" both have the abilites to
- Sticky any thread
- Lock any thread
- Move any thread
- Edit and/or split any thread
What "Admins" can do and see that others cannot:
- Track IP's
- Know who is where on the board -- including guests
- Know who is visiting but has chosen to hide themselves
- Configure the board to enable certain groups/people access to limited access areas.
Mods and Admin are not able to read anyone's PM's but their own.
