Enhancement request

Post by zzzyzygy » 30 Jan 2009 21:26

Heya Slig,

What are the chances of having a user category that has the authority to select maps, but no other admin functions?

They would have access only to:

/adm endround
/adm restart [warmup|wu]
/adm next
/adm next [envir|num|name]
/adm setnext [envir|num|name]
/adm prev
/adm setprev
/adm prev [envir|num|name]
/adm setprev [envir|num|name]

Perhaps /adm could be replaced by /usr.

It looks like it would need a chat.usr.php file with the above commands, a user xml file, a !verifyUser($login) function, and a set of /user commands that are equivalent to the /admin commands and only accessible to admins.

I'm no php programmer, so I don't know how to do any of this.

Is that do-able?

Would be cool to have them functions as an on or off option (maybe even a plugin)..

If you are gonna do it Slig, why not invoke a '/kick [username|reason]' (or even '/modkick [username|reason]') and create/call the whole new group 'Moderators' and be one of the first controllers to involve moderators... (no question mark coz its just an idea, not a question lol!)

Such thing already exists. :)
Should be in GlidersPluginPack. There you can add subadmins with those rights (next, restart, etc.).

Yes, I know.. but its called 'sub-admin' rather than moderator due to the banning capabilities etc..

but the topics about a less powerful entity.

LOL There's a story behind it. To make it simple for you, it's pronounced zi-zi-jee.
