Glossary

Common Forum Terms:

Admin - (aka: main admin, root admin, user-1) The creator of a forum. The account with the username admin. They have absolute control over the forum.

Administrator - Administrators or "Admins" are staff of the forum as designated by the forum creator. They are members who are part of a member group that have administrative powers assigned. On a new forum the creator (main admin) is included in the Administrator member group by default, though it is not required for the main admin to be in a group to utilize all their powers on the forum.

Admin Panel - The area where all of the administrative functions can be found. Located in the forum top bar.

Announcement - This is a thread that is automatically placed at the top of the board (or multiple boards) that it's on. The thread is immovable until the announcement is taken down.

Avatar - The image that represents a member on a forum. Avatars appear next to a user's every post.

Bookmarks - A system used to save threads of interest for later viewing.

Category - Separators on the main page of the forum which divide the boards into a grouping.

Global Moderator - Global Moderators are the next step up from Moderators. Normally, global moderators will have the moderator functions in all of the boards on the forum, plus, additional 'lower' admin options, such as 'fix a board', or ban member. By default, any global moderators you add will have no powers to use. This will mean that you will need to supply the global moderator group with the powers you want them to have.

Member Rank - Different ranks assigned to members based on the number of posts that the member has.

Moderator - Moderators are people who have control over a message forum. By default, any moderators you add will have no powers to use. This will mean that you will need to supply the moderator group with the powers you want them to have.
