  • [Rant]Shouldn't 'super moderator' be 'global moderator'?[/Rant]

    I've just been thinking and I might as well post this, but shouldn't super moderarator be global moderator? Global moderator clearly explains the function of this role much more, and other forum software uses this term.

    I'm not expecting that vBulletin will change this phrase after using 'super moderator' since the beginning of its existence, but I just wanted to say this and see what others have to think about it

    Because sometimes I tell someone that they are now a super moderator, they get completely lost and I need to add in a few more sentences just to explain it.

    lol, whoever doesn't know what a super mod is doesn't belong as a super mod they obviously haven't been paying much attention to your staff

    but I like the term super mod, others may use global mod but that just shows vB isnt just copying names

      Maybe "Forum-wide Moderator" since usually only programmers immediately think of "global" in that context.

        It is quite easy to change the terminology on your installation to anything that you desire. You could call them "monkey men" if you so desired simply by changing the name of the usergroup and the title.

              Our supermods are "Goderators"

                Personally I always thought of Super Moderators and Global Moderators as different staff positions. The Global Moderator being a regular moderator with permission to moderate every forum and the Super Moderator being that while having the capability to ban as well as other things via the ModCP.
