I felt the need to reiterate this point.


Is it going to stay that way? Also does a list mod qualify as an admin?

Most of my concern on that front is if admins/list mods are also players.

Admins are red names (Kison, Mith, Flay).

Any admin who decides they want to play in a game will have their full PT access removed while they are playing.

Jeep and Meme are gone-gone. Mith may have periods of inactivity, but he still owns this site and is still around more than not I'd say.

They can become public after games end.

You have a problem if you're seeing ongoing game ones tho

Do posts in private topics get counted in a player's post count when looking at their profile?

Something worth noting at the moment - currently in ego search they do not have "PRIVATE TOPIC" in front of them. Not sure if this was a known thing or not, tried to search the thread for any mention of it.

Feature, not a bug? (Mostly just curious, as I know there has been a huge push to keep the PTs strongly distinguished from the rest of the topics onsite)

Could we make it possible to edit and/or delete posts in PTs like QTs?

That's something that we always could do in QTs, anyway. Or maybe give the PT creator the option of allowing/disallowing it.

I ask because this is something fairly important. If you posted something in the wrong QT, it could potentially compromise one or two games, but there was the ability to delete the message. (Both by yourself or if necessary the topic creator.)
If you post something in the wrong PT, right now, you have to rely on the PT creator in order to delete it, and don't have that power yourself. Which can lead to potentially compromising a game or two.

i would be fine with this, particularly the "OP decides whether to allow editing or not" part.

Editing permissions are decided at the forum level. It would be very little work to turn them on for all PTs, but then, I don't see why someone should be allowed to edit posts in PTs more than they should be allowed to in a mafia game.

I have no intentions of doing the coding required to add topic level editing permissions.

Because a mafia game is entirely public information. Prohibition of editing in QT's has never, to my knowledge, been standard.

Really the time it's annoying is for review threads, particularly the normal review threads where the OP isn't the primary person doing the setup. But a minor concern.
