Why can't you just differentiate admin powers between yourself and butjam so he can't see non-UKRP party forums?
<Guitah> not arguing with a Brit about tea is tha sensible thing to do :)
<Appleby> it is common knowledge it is pointless arguing with an addict :p
<Appleby> thus it is pointless arguing about tea with brits

if there is an instance of people posting illegal crap on our own private forums, I am sure that we can monitor and report it ourselves to the admin crew if it is that serious a breach...considering we have several ex-Admins in our party mod team its doubly sure TUP can look after itself.

And I am sure that the other parties/MUs are more than capable of their own mod teams. The only Admin I will concede having rights to see TUP forum, or even ESO/UKPP forums is Kumnaa

I don't even know why it's a big deal. The political parties in this game are so similar that there's nothing you really need to hide.

If everyone wanted access to the UKRP forum - personally - I wouldn't care because you wouldn't learn anything interesting. I'm sure this is true of all party forums.

Its the invasion of privacy that we object to rather than anything 'interesting'. Its like letting the government come into your house all the time, some things we can manage ourselves unless its serious, then we can call in the 'cops'

I think you're somewhat exaggerating or being overly dramatic there.

I feel the same way. Maybe it's a northern thing, I want people to butt out and leave some privacy!

Reason TUP always used the forum is it had the advantages that would come with a standalone tup forum with the convenience of a single log in. That advantage has gone now

Oh god, this is fantastic. People bitch about not having an admin who plays the game, then bitch that someone who's admin and plays the game has admin privileges to view everything.

Never change eUK, never change.

Just one example would be our polls.  Why should a senior UKRP member get to know who our candidates are and how our polls are going?

We can. There is a core 'administrator' group that can't be altered. Me and Kumnaa are currently in that at the moment, that gives blanket full power control over everything as well as unrestricted access.

We can create a new group with all permissions set to yes, then we'd be able to set it soni can't see boards that I'm not a member of.

Our concern is that if I'm out of this group, certain powers only available to the core admin group won't be available, take how long it took to talk to Kumbaa about this as an example. If we can get someone who doesn't play the game that can be trusted with buttons, I will gladly move to a new group because it's a lot more fun than having people think you're spying on them. The problem is finding that person, because we're limited to Digby who doesn't play. Kdogg isn't associated with anybody but people have questioned him because of his low postcount. Personally, I'd trust them with the admin buttons and I know I'd be able to reach them, whether or not Kumnaa/everyone else is happy with an appointment like that is different

(Also I refute the senior UKRP comment, I was made vPP for the purpose of adventure time gifs, I'm nothing but a hindrance to the party...)

So the moral of the story is, don't fuckk things up to start with, then we wont need any admins because everything will be fine.

Is this fixed yet?  If not, bloody well hurry up.

As the only active admin, butjam needs to administrate the whole forum for which he needs these magic powers. We abandoned the hiding of things from admins when we moved to the new forums and got rid of all but one of them (not including myself)

I understand why you will always be supreme admin, but surely if Frerk is inactive he should go?

He has now.

Don't open threads in party forums unless there has been a report. Simple.

I wouldn't even open one then, that's for local mods (or mods with access) to deal with

I have a possible solution, please be patient

You're a nice guy, so we won't hold our breath.

Not to mention that I've already said how to sort it, and made sure to get that info to kumnaa. Him actually taking the 15 minutes it would require to set it up and implement it is another thing entirely.

Pfeiffer, cool your tongue, your venom isn't necessary. The majority of people with issues have raised them sensibly and maturelyz try and follow suit.
