No frat parties here, and the only kegger that will be going down involves stuffing your head with the best threads the forum has to offer.

Stay tuned as we get this section of the forum packed full of the very best threads from our members.

Thanks and we'll see you soon,

2.A rank or class.

Hehe, you can post in any of the threads made, unless I say to Hook to close them or anyone else decides to close one for other reasons.

Tier2 and above (mods, admin) can all post threads, and everyone should be able to reply in them.

Anyway, sory about the heldup guys, but every time I added a thread, its not displayed it. Hook hasnt got back to me on that yet, and I seems to be a thing with the "Tier2" people, as Andy thied to post a testing thred and it didnt work either. Im baffled :D

Hook
10-13-2005, 08:58 AM
Kev, you shouldn't have any problems now and I pulled your technique threads out of the moderation que, they were stuck there.

Tier 2 members consist of kev and Andy, its just a different set of setting on their user profile in the forum that allows them to get more PM's and have special access to this part of the forum.

tier two members just have some additional user options and more PM space. Its no big deal, I simply menntioned it because I didn't want people to think there was something wrong with the forum because their threads in this section wouldn't show up - in other words, only kev and the mods and Andy at Massmusic can make threads here.

Whether or not you have the authority to edit and delete posts etc. doesn't affect this in anyway. Anyone can contribute, and if it wasn't for all us members here on PDF this place would be nothing. Moderators keep this place clean and fun, but if it wasn't for the rest of us there would be nothing!

Trust me, there's a lot of work and responsibility involved in being a moderator/alike.

Yeah, I totally agree. I cant play favourites either, even if I could make everyone a mod. And then that guy who you liked falls out and he goes and collapses and the whole things falls which is why I am deff. not pressuring Hook into letting anyone (unless Hook has request or something) be a mod. Not saying anyone would be a spoon and overthrow the university, but as I say, I'm not playing favourites.
