Re: Group Forum Admin Moderators



Well, I realized that bppress included a way to use moderators for group forums, which is through admin settings for that specific group.

However, all that a moderator can do is in buddypress 1.0.2 is :

– Change group name (Bad idea to give to moderator)

– Change group news (semi ok, but still a possible security risk)

– Change group description (Bad idea)

– limited ability to delete only wired non-admin posts. (Very limited).

Also, it seems that all members can invite their own buddies into the group? Are you serious??? Only the admin or the moderator should be able to have that access.


Anyways, I hope that in future settings that we see admins and moderators have:

– ability to edit, move or remove group or wire posts

– ability to edit topics.

– Get rid of ability to rename group name for moderator

– Only admin and moderators should have access to invite members? This is a security risk for it to work otherwise!

An admin of a group’s purpose is the entire control over that group.

The moderators of that groups purpose is to maintain the integrity of the posts in the group/group forum area.

I would like to see the ability to ban, but then again, maybe the best idea is a “REPORT” button. Where if someone has posted something bad then they can simply just click “REPORT” and a MAIN Site Administrator will look it over and decide the appropriate measures of either deleting that post or punishing the member within that group themselves.

So, maybe Group Admins shouldn’t have the ability of punishment, but Main Site Admin’s should.
