Forum Moderation [resolved]


truefusion

Is it me, or are many of the moderation features missing? The most i can do now is delete posts, nothing more. I tried reporting a topic for the sake of remembering the topic till the moderation features comes back, but it didn't go through.

Mine was fine earlier. However, now I have lost the ability to edit posts, delete posts, perform moderation on topics, or pretty much anything actually The Report Centre also contains only one report, with no title, last updated by BH on 04/06.

when you click on moderating team, none of the moderators are listed there anymore except for the admins and tramp.i have noticed a few more new bugs.

I'ma start using this thread as a substitute for the report center until things are back to normal so that i don't lose track of spam (or so an admin can take care of the spam before then).

not only that, but i know that mods can't approve new posts either because those posts are now invisable. i think some posts may just get lost in the clutter for a while...

i wouldn't hold your breath on any admins doing anything either. opaque will not police these forums and buffalohelp is not around as usual.

anwiii,I am so sorry that I couldn't pull away from driving my friend and his son to a hospital for his son's surgery. I am so sorry that I couldn't stop my friend from crying while his son was being fused with titanium rods from his neck to his hip. I am so sorry that I did not log in while I was consoling him and his wife.I thought you were leaving the moderating team, as you so plastered all over your status message. And how members PMed me if you were still or not in the moderating team.The forum, probably went through another upgrade and OpaQue maybe disabled few features or missed while upgrading. If you are so unsatisfied with the way the forum is handled instead of pointing out everyone's fault you can choose to leave as you so wish. You made it so clear in your PM how you hate to support hypocrites.

OpaQue notified me today that he turned off Moderator features--for his own testing purpose. He is installing 2 modules and then he will let the forum return to normal status (whatever that means lol).I'm sorry for this inconvenience. You will need to just put up with the forum until OpaQue returns us to normal.Use your report buttons and stay on top of announcements. We are having some heated discussions by people who do not understand what's going on fully. And OpaQue is just loaded with programming that he cannot answer fast enough.I will try to keep you updated, whenever possible.

Unless reports are only visible to admin for the time being, then the report feature isn't working. I can access the report center, and a while back i did see a completed report, so i have reason to believe that reporting a topic isn't something that is currently viable.

 

And i noticed there's a new button now, ''Promote to Article.'' It's gone now...

I noticed that rvalkass is able to moderate posts. I was wondering if you can do that same, TF.OpaQue tells me that he disabled moderators (whatever that means) but they are still in the mod group. Which means you can still moderate the forum except...???...what I dont' know.He is focusing on facebook and twitter plugins for the forum at the moment. Please test out the status updates and such.The forum's email feature (sending out important forum email notification to all members) are not working. We need to get that up and running before anything else, he says. That means we're looking at delays on the rest of projects including myCENT. OpaQue does not grant just about anybody to work on myCENT because it deals with forum SQL and exposing codes to others may leak the source code. He was burned by a partner in the past and he is not willing to take another chance at it. It's something the forum members do not know and do not need to know. They can assume and throw misconceptions all day long, but I just wanted you all to know the real story.PS I'm so glad you replied to this post, TF. I came in to test with my testmod account to see even this forum can be seen by moderators. It's a mess. Thanks you guys for being absolute patient while OpaQue is upgrading.

Here is what i am currently capable of doing: Close my own topics (i cannot close anyone else's topic), edit my own posts (i cannot edit anyone else's posts), and ''delete'' posts (it's not actually deleting, it's really more of unapproving posts, but the forum labels it as ''delete,'' and it cannot be the first post in the topic). I can ''delete'' a topic (i.e. take it out of view, not actually delete it) if i ''delete'' it from the topics list view (i.e. from outside the topic), but not if i'm viewing (inside) the topic. ''Delete,'' though, comes off more as ''ignore this post/topic.'' For the time being i can ''delete'' what i consider spam, and when i get the ability to properly handle those posts i will search them out via the forum filters and take care of them then.Also, is it just me, or am i by default considered logged in as anonymous?

The only moderation feature I have access to is clicking Delete on posts, then using the option to only hide them. I can't actually delete the posts, or edit them, or... well, anything else, really. Just thought I'd do what I could Looks like that was the only moderating feature than OpaQue didn't disable.

BuffaloHelp

Oh Opaque... please please return us to normal... ha ha haI don't want to keep bothering him. Last time I bugged him he used all CAPS to "shout" at me I'm sure he felt bad as I did, afterwards. (Did you read that OpaQue?? You made me feel bad )Let's give him some more time. I will not go into the admin control and start messing around with setting he placed while he is working on integrating 3rd party plugins.And only Opaque has the total access to the forum directory and such. I am just an outsider. So the whole thing rests on one man's shoulder. Atlas shrugged...


truefusion

It appears that our ''powers'' are back.


rvalkass

Looks like it. I'm going through and clearing the backlog of posts waiting for approval - they built up pretty quickly


BuffaloHelp

Topic is resolved.Please PM any moderator to continue this discussion. Until then, this topic is closed.
