We really need a way to transfer/share PT ownership.

Game Mods flake, or co-mods need access, or...

I believe you can flay.

1. Add user to the PT list
2. Change OP user to user.

I don't have permissions to do that, but you should be able to.

Doesn't work. More specifically, I cannot add users to the PT list, because I am not the OP.

Okay. Maybe...

1. Change OP to Mr. Flay.
2. Add user to the PT list
3. Change OP user to user

When we were testing I had access to this stuff, but now that it's removed I can't test it out for myself, so sorry if these suggestions don't end up working.

I think it would be great if it was possible to share moderator power in PT and in game threads.

i know you'd have to ask us, but for games, the listmods can do that for you.

That's not an issue. If I were in a situation where I was unable to continue moderating, I would facilitate a change in power. The reason I'd argue for an ability to share power without asking is because not all moderator flakes are going to arrange that change in power.

...but all Modflakes involve the List Mod? So it's zero extra work.

yeah, the only time there's more work is if you ask us to add someone without a flake, but at least I do that somewhat frequently: hydra mods sometimes ask to have their individual accounts given topic mod permissions, sometimes a backup needs to take over for a week while someone's on vacation or whatever. It's not a big deal. If I were really on the ball, I'd add backup mods as a topic moderator to every game when the thread is created, but mod flakes for large themes are so infrequent it seems a waste of time.

It was a good theory. Even when I am the OP it won't let me add users.

A while back I had to take over for a mod that flaked a couple of games. The only listmod that got involved as I remember was the newbie list mod, which happened after the fact. (I didn't actually need moderator power for that because I only had to end that particular game.)

I just think that it could make the transition to a backup mod smoother, but it's not a big deal, just something I think would be nice.

*nod* I get what you're saying, but I know the LMs want to know when somebody flakes, because it affects the experience credit they get, and their ability to sign up for other games (modflakes get a New Game ban as a player, now).

Actually the modflake was just that newbie game. I think the other game I was thinking of was a game Sotty backup modded where she had to take over for a modflake around the same time.

My memory sucks and I feel old.

Actually it's more basic than that; I can't add users to my threads, period. And yes, I'm in a modding group in addition to my admin privs.

Does that mean if I hypothetically had to stop modding a game I would get a ban even if I arranged for my backup to take over in a smooth manner?

That's the opposite of a flake.

Would it change anything if even though I had a backup plan in place that I would feel bad for not finishing my commitment to mod the game and feel like a flake?

No, I was just making sure we had the same definition of flake here. Thanks.

If there can be a decision made about modflakes getting new game bans, has there been a decision about regular player bans for flaking and then signing up for a new game?

Am I the only person who finds granting permissions to a user awkward? I get the whole editing aspect of it, but there's been a few occasions where I've added people to the topic and then forgotten to submit the edit. This is compounded by the fact that you can only see the list of authorized viewers in the edit mode. (Unless there's a way to see it that I don't know about.) It would be nice if there was a way to do this that didn't involve editing post 0. Just sayin.

Isn't this solved if one were to give PT access to their backup/co-mods prior to the start of the game?
