The "Mod" link is to be used by moderators to access the moderator section of the forum. Theoretically in some cases.

Correct about the link. Moderator access level or higher to see it. Not sure why these guys don't see it...and please welcome JohnWR and Amorget as our new moderators! (Thank god I now have help.)

Hey there,

Can you give this a try now?
I made a change in the accounts.

Still no link. Can one of you send the URL? I presume that it can be accessed manually.

There was a bit of confusion here so allow me to clarify.

Mods cannot use the Mod function unless enabled, Super Mods have it setup automatically.

If we want to have regular mods have access to that back end, we would need to have that discussion in the mod section

So, what does a regular moderator do without access to the "back end"? I understood that was where most of the work that prompted this discussion happened, and where most of the help was needed.

Maybe an owner's manual for my newly-minted moderator-ship would be handy.

Agreed... this forum is setup nothing like any other forum I moderate on and I'm not seeing any of the typical tools.

Are you able to see moderated threads? If I'm reading things correctly, this was the major complaint from the OP - a delay in seeing their posts.

Also, you should be able to go into your user CP and scroll down - on the left side of the page you'll see Moderation. Click on that and the choices are Threads and Posts. This will show you all threads and posts that are in moderation. You can then click on the thread/post to see the full content.

HTH!

Thanks. All of that would have been very helpful if any of it was correct. Actually it probably is all correct, but unfortunately none of it applies to me.

Something is either broken or hasn't been set up yet, because the only changes to anything I can find are the word "Moderator" under my name and my inbox is bigger.

I can't see moderated threads or posts, and do not have a link called "Moderation" or mod-anything for that matter.

I have to assume that @Administrator or our Super-Moderator @Robotech are working on it.

Sounds like the admin needs to set up your permissions. IIRC a super mod does not have access to the permissions. (I could be wrong)

Perhaps Robo should be promoted to Admin

So apparently the difference between a super moderator and a moderator is a super moderator has access to the more powerful moderator tools. I imagine that leaves the more simple tools for the moderators.

There should be some drop downs in the post that you have access to JohnWR...one should be called thread tools towards the top and the other should be moderation which should be down around the quick response box.

Can't speak for John, but I don't have any of those things.

Under threads tools I have Print and Subscribe/Unsubscribe.

Near Quick Reply I just have Quote, Multi Quote and Quick Reply.

No moderation tools for me, unless I am looking in the wrong place.
