What's the difference and what do regional mod, global mod, and admins do? I just want to know, thanks.

Easy. Regional moderator can moderate all posts in one of the regional boards. Their names are listed below the specific board. They can also participate in the admin board discussions that we have, but they cannot generally edit posts in other boards. (There is an exception where they used to be able to merge posts, I believe. The merge post feature is now gone.) Global moderators can moderate all posts in all boards, and also have the power to approve/deny new users, moderate existing users, or even delete a user (the "nuclear option" we almost never exercise). Oddly, we can't temporarily ban users, only delete or issue warnings. Finally, admins can do all of the above, plus all sorts of user options. (They could edit your signature, icon, everything. That's why NE2, bugo, and myself have unusual start dates.) Admins can also update the forum software. For example, with the current chat problems, only admins have access to try to fix it.

I think one time you used to be an administrator and SSOWorld was once a global moderator. And I find it interesting that only admins can temporarily ban users while the global mods can't. I thought you could temp or perma ban users too!

How long have you been stalking us?...

And who can ban users and lock threads? Can regional moderators do that too?
