[1] I'm pleased to announce the first of our moderation/staff powers are now working. Details/Explanations are listed below.

We will use the following to illustrate our purposes.

- Forum A
- Forum B
- Forum C

The 3 types of users with moderation powers are as follows:

Level 0-599 (usually above 500)
These users can edit any posts in a forum in which they are designated a moderator. If the user is moderator of Forum B, (s)he can edit posts only in Forum B.

Veteran Moderator
Level 600-699
These users must be designated as moderator in a at least one forum for their powers to be enabled. If they are designated as moderator of Forum A which belongs to Category 1, they have editing powers in ALL forums of category 1 - A, B, and C. This basically says if a veteran user is entrusted to moderate one forum, we trust (s)he with editing powers on related forums as well.

Level 700-777
These users are able to edit any and all posts on the board, regardless of specific moderator designations.

[2]As requested, each thread now has a new/old indicator. When you see a lit forum (meaning at least one new thread has a new message), clickong on the forum will now show all threads with new messages since your last login highlighted. Very useuful. Thanks to drizzt for pointing this out.

thank you Drizzt

You only truly lose when winning becomes more important than playing.

I make a new vow, one weighed in experience and proclaimed with my eyes open: I will not raise my scimitars except in defense: in defense of my principles, of my life, or of others who cannot defend themselves. I will not do battle to further the causes of false prophets, to further the treasures of kings, or to avenge my own injured pride.
