newbie questions
« on: February 22, 2021, 07:16:09 PM »
I'm just a newbie and I do not really know what's a 'Global Moderator?' Is it some special title that you can only get under special circumstances? Can I get it?

I'm just a newbie and I do not really know what's a 'Global Moderator?'
Moderators are responsible for enforcing the forum rules, and have elevated permissions that enable them to do so. They're capable of locking/unlocking, moving around, and deleting posts and threads, as well as being able to receive reported posts.

Is it some special title that you can only get under special circumstances?
With great power, comes great responsibility. The circumstances are so special that Craig (the forum owner/administrator/wonderful game designer) has only ever granted the position to two users. (At least as far as I can remember, in the couple of decades I've been here. Was there ever a mod other than KZ on the old forums? Ert wasn't promoted until the new forums, right?)

Can I get it?
Umm... you'll want to talk to Craig about that one.

Welcome to the forums, Gabriel!
And in KZ's style:
Quote from: KZ
Read the rules, use proper grammar and punctuation, play the games, share your ideas and enjoy your stay!

I don't remember nobody before KZ being a mod. And if I recall correctly, I was promoted after KZ told Craig that he would be unable to keep being active as before.

Sounds about right!
