    I understand. I just wanted to make sure ya'll knew who the right person to go to was if you decide that the elections etc. are something you want. Don't worry, I didn't take it personally or anything.

    The only difference between Admin and Moderator is how much we can edit. As an Admin I can edit user profiles and do things like reset passwords for members who don't have access to the email they signed up with, merge accounts when someone makes a second one, and change their usergroup if the board takes a million years to show their Jewel status or something. As far as the political process goes, Admins don't get more votes when we decide on rule changes or infractions or anything like that.

    Figured I would answer since I actually have admin powers and can tell you what I can do.

    OHHH so admin is like a mod, but has the technical ability to make the adjustments.

    Yep exactly. ALL of staff can do the basic stuff, like moving threads, but when it comes to account issues that is Admin stuff.

    ETA: HUGE board stuff like making new forums is only Root Admin which is QP.

    Meh, after what happened to Sam I think we don't know each other as well as we think and with mods changing all the time one bad egg gets in there and the whole site goes to complete shit, people's info spread all over, just madness. Idk I just wouldn't be comfortable with it changing all the time, like everyone being privy to mod info concerns me.
