New Moderators and Leaders on board!

Traffic is getting bigger here and new member joining every day. While I really enjoy it, it is time to move to the next level and thank many others that came to help and participate on new Overgrow.

I’d like to welcome new moderators on the board!

@Blowingupjake
@GrapeApe
@Zedy

Thanks guys that you accepted the responsibility :smiley:

And there are also new members that have been granted status of Leader

@GrowerGoneWild
@lotus710
@Catfishbylli

Congratulations and thank you for your effort here! It is great to see that you really care about OG!

What Leader can do is listed here. I woud now like to summarize what Moderators can and can’t do so you know where are their limits. Besides following list they also have same powers as Leaders.

Moderators can do

  • Rename users, topics
  • Move topics between categories
  • Resolve flagged posts and topics

Moderators can’t do

  • see user e-mails
  • see IP addresses
  • access other’s private messages

On the serious note:

MODs don’t have access to private info about members nor private messages. In addition to that we are also not logging IP addresses and removing metadata from your photos automatically.

That is guaranteed.

But there is still one person that has access to whole database - that is admin (me). So I would like to urge members not to keep any sensitive data in their PMs. While I’m doing my best to secure the site and protect your privacy, it is not a vault. Please delete any personal info from your PMs after use and don’t store it there for longer time than needed.

Also all moderator’s actions are logged for security purposes (in case any of their user account is hacked).

I’m saying that just because I’d like to be as transparent and open as possible and so to warn you all of possible risks. We are still public website, not dark net operated site.

End of serious announcement :smiley: Thank you all for your support and concern! I really appreciate it and your endeavour is binding for me to develop the site even more and create new features to make Overgrow even better again!

I’ve implemented new user group function and created staff group called “TeamOG”. This has some interesting features:

:warning: Any user can call attention of Moderators to their post by mentioning @TeamOG

This will alert whole Team Overgrow, so use carefully… (so I’m sorry for false alert guys, this is just for demonstration purposes)

If you guys ever need some help and need mods, I have quite some free time atm.
Having been Admin / mod on medium/big sites a few years (also as job), I still remember how to do, even after 10 years of a completely different life… :wink:
peace
