Threadmins and Group Moderators is a moderation enhancement for single users (who can receive permissions to modify their own threads, or single threads and social group discussions) as well as allow for usergroups to be set as 'group moderators' and allow the users in such usergroups the same moderator permissions.

Uses
Threadmins and Group Moderators is a self moderation system that allows threads to be moderated by the user that created them. Users can be given permissions to edit, delete, sticky, open/close or be immune to such actions. Also it allows users to be assigned as moderators to a single thread or to a single Social Group discussion and allows usergroups to be assigned as moderators to forums.

This is from my post on DBtech:

This could be of use just for the fun of it (I have forum called authormoderator, but users need to ask real moderator to do moderating actions, so this is our way-around).

Or, you could have special usergroup that pays you to advertise something on your site. To this usergroup you could give right to also moderate its thread(s). If you have successful community with lot users, there would be those willing to pay to have threads they could moderate and advertise whatever they want advertised.

And last idea for possible usage, you could give this privilege to people you appreciate, or who write about interesting subjects, so they would have control over their threads and thus stay on your site and not go to someone else's. We all know that content is what brings people to our sites and that people makes content. In this way we could have trump we could use to lure those who have something to say to our sites and keep them.
Actually there could be other uses, but it all depends how YOU want to use it.

Anyway, original post is here: http://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/f101/...oderator-6113/

I myself think that this is great mod, with numerous possibilities, but we all need to get creative and start to think about our users as possible moderators, of course, supervised with our real moderators.

No, it isn't. Because this gives ability to user to moderate threads, but it doesn't make them moderators in sense that they belong to this usergroup and become real members of your stuff.

So they shouldn't get notified if someone report thread, or post.

for this mod, can i set sponsors/advertisers to only moderate threads in their particular forums? for example i want them to be able to moderate their sections, but not their threads on other forum sections.

Yes, this is how it is done in free version, you choose forum, you choose which usergroups have which moderators actions in that particular forum.

It is a pro feature that you have certain usergroup which could moderate their threads everywhere.

I believe this plugin should get much more effort before asking money for it.

It basically does not work 'as it is'.

I have version 4.0.8. It will not work until doing the following change in the functions.php:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


This is probably Okay, but...


1. Where is the soft-delete ability which is announced?

One of the posters has a thread which has about 1,000 pages. Moderators have no time to clean it up, and I'd like to allow this poster to take care about his thread by allowing him editing and deliting messages.
The only way I found is clicking 'Edit' and then in the Advanced Edit mode VB has an option 'Delete'.

Just imagine how much time the poster should spend for deleting ~900 pages by clicking 'Edit' on each message and then 'Delete'!
This should be done 18,000 times!
This is really terrible.

2. After having this plugin running, option 'Manage thread' becomes available.

This is definitely a bug. Since it allows moving a thread into any forum poster wants.

This mod at the current time doesn't allow inline moderation, so yes, users need to edit post and go advanced to soft delete them.

Maybe in newer version there will be option for this, but in my opinion, this as it is now is pretty big improvement to not being able to allow any kind of moderation to users at all. Users don't need to have all moderators tools at their disposal.

In what way does it not work? Are you expecting it to do more than it does? If you can be more specific about the problem, we might be able to help you with it: Fix it if it's a bug, or explain why the mod doesn't do what you are expecting, or even look at implementing it if it's not a feature.

You've removed a permissions check, not something we'd suggest you do. I've not checked it on 4.0.8, but if you explain what the problem is, we'll look into why it's not working (if appropriate).

Soft delete is meant to work from within the post as Alan mentions in the previous post. This is not a mass moderating capability. It might be something we can look at adding. We will make some initial investigations to see what we can do for this.

The bug almost certainly comes from the code change you made above, as there are no administrative tools available to users normally. The only options a user gets is as if they have permissions to sticky or close their thread.

If you've got this problem without the code change you made above, please let us know so we can investigate.
