Moderator Options file size, type and ip addres [message #13417] Wed, 08 October 2003 06:03 Go to next message

1.- Could be good if moderator file upload size and file type could be diferent from normal users in their forum.

2.- Also could be good the option to remove the posibility to show the users ip address to forum moderators.

The reasons i think are easy to see but.

1.- A moderator could upload a zip file but users only could upload a jpg file.

2.- I am sure that the moderator could moderate the forum but that he shows the user ip address is not good.

Moderators need to see the IP address, because while they may not be able to ban a person by IP. The moderators (not the admins) are the ones spending most of the time trolling for offenders. Thus they can spot trends; many accounts using the same IP, etc... and notify the admin with pertinent information.

Different file attachment restrictions is something I will take under consideration.
