  • Adding another Administrator, some questions.


    I would like to add two administrators to my site. They are my partners and I can use the help with setting up hacks and changing colors and the such.

    I would like to know a couple things before I do this.

    Can they kick me off the forum?

    Can I loose permission to edit the forum?

    Can I disable their Admin status if needed?

    I would just like to know how I am covered when I add them to the site.

    Could I just backup the site constantly and erase and create an older version of the forum incase something goes wrong using my FTP account?

    I just want to know if I will still have some say if something happens in the future. We are doing great now but sometimes the **** hits the fan.

    Yes, they will be able to do all those things. If you are even asking this question then I strongly suggest you do not promotre anyone to Admin status.

      Yeah, you're probably better off giving others moderator status instead...

        If you don't trust them 110% you're better off keeping yourself is the only Admin. There is an excellent hack that Hellsatan released at that you should check out:

        Since discussions regarding hacking should be posted at, I'll leave it at that
