Leaders Q and A Topic

Hi!
As you guys probably already know, me (@FearlessPhoenix), @SuperGirl3Acer, @Roller_Blade, @t7lks , @William04GamerA, @Serenity, @Autobot_Beejay, @HopscotchRemixer and @Jazz are the new Forum Leaders.
This is a Q and A topic, where you can ask us questions about anything we do. This may also be used as a topic for future reference.

Ask away, and we’ll do our best to answer!

Nice topic first reply cool

FAQ At A Glance (I will continue to edit this)

Can you create custom groups?

No, they cannot. That is a mod-only function

Can you PM people?

Same as above

How about Custom Titles?

Mods said they shouldn’t, so I guess you can just ask @Ana. Also, these are only given to certain people, so please do not bombard Ana with questions

What can I ask them?

You can ask them questions about anything from forum protocols to Hopscotch code. They’ll also ensure that your topics and posts are relevant and positive. You can always tag them if you notice inappropriate content.

When is a good time to tag them?

I’m sure they would love to help anytime, whether it is to deal with a flamewar, closing a topic temporarily, etc. Feel free to tag them for help, that’s why they are leaders.

When could I become a leader?

I want to know that too – whenever Ana or mods need some more or offer up some more spots or need more assistance – here is a bit of info on that:

What can a leader do?

  • Edit all posts. This includes making them a wiki.
  • Pin/unpin topic
  • Close and Archive topics
  • Edit topics in to or from any category
  • Make topics unlisted
  • Split and merge topics (portaling)
  • Reset topic bump date
  • Daily like limit increased by 3×
  • Any TL4 flag cast on any post immediately takes effect and hides the target post

What can’t a leader do?

  • Anything related to users, banning and profiles; this is restricted to THT so all users stay safe.
  • As previously mentioned, PMing people, custom groups, and custom titles are all mod-only functions.
  • Basically, a leader has full control of every post and topic, but nothing related to users
  • Delete Posts, but they can move them to a “disposal topic”

How can I see when any leader is on so I don’t have to check each or tag them?

You can go to the leaders group and see when each person last posted or was last seen

Any other questions?

Feel free to tag me or a leader about a FAQ. I will keep this post updated.
