That's a joke! What f[size=2]eatures are exclusive for mods and admins in real world? [/size]

Real-world mods and admins? One example is turning back time when a disaster occurs. For example, April 10, 2016 would have had a 9/11-like event on DC's buildings if admins didn't turn back time and let time run its course in a different way (there's always random variation when you redo a day). The reason 9/11 itself wasn't prevented was because there was also a hurricane headed for NYC that day, and there was miscommunication between different groups of admins regarding 9/11 and the Hurricane Deflection Team, plus restarting the day 20+ times never got rid of 9/11 entirely but only changed its severity.

Admins can theoretically erase someone from existence, but it almost never gets done because the admin's approval rating will take a hit.

Santa would not be able to deliver billions of gifts in 24 hours (due to time zones) without the help of real-world admins.

I meant what features are exclusive for mods and admins in this forum. Like locking, sticking and deleting threads and editing other members' messages.

Mods can build new islands, but only Admins can put them up for sale after construction ends.

That's a joke!

No it f[size=2] isn't.

Probably just typical forum management tools. Threads can also be moved between boards or merged.

Admins are another story with what they can do.  :popcorn:

There could be a special "Likes the forum way, way too much" subforum for members over 10,000 posts.

Why?
Because it would give one benefit.

What’s the benefit?  Does it have cash value?

I want to point out that Reddit's r/lounge, which requires real money (either yourself or one of your comments was gilded), is absolutely useless. There is no point in a 10000+ post board.

What benefit?

I bet the only thread in that special secret forum would be called something like "Let's all gripe about the latest troll", and the only advantage would be that you couldn't respond.

We are not adding any ranks or features for ranks at this time. The ranks are meaningless fluff that is meant to be a little bit of fun. Even typing out a list of what they are now is spending more time on them than they deserve, much less inventing new ones.

If you have any questions about the admin/moderator feature set, please read the documentation for Simple Machines Forum.
