forum damage to user account RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I like the new design of the forums.  I had full access to mod tools in the forums This is my first time in these new forums. I can still access all of the mod areas in technet and msdn, but mod tools are no longer visable (move thread, split thread, merge thread, lock thread, excedra) ore gone. .  when the new forums were set up, my access was changed. I would like someone to fix this please
    I was absent from the forums from 2007 to 2009.due to physical issues. When I left, all mod tools were accesable. now the only thing i can do is mark answers, edit, and mark post as helpfull. Thank you in advance for fix.

  • Moderator rights were drastically rolled back on the new site.  You only have rights in the forums that are labeled "You are a moderator of this forum".  Producing traps like being able to move to Off Topic but not moving it back.  There are not many active community moderators left, not in the forums I post to anyway.  Most standard duties are now handled by groups in India and China.

  • Hi Hans,

    Thank for the update. I have been away for a while, but am back now. Wow, I must say, thing have changed a lot in the new forums. It will take some getting-used-to.

  •  The new forums are ok. They have done damage. I spoke with one of the old technet moderators. His rights were also erased because of the new platforms. I encouraged him to contact jeremy about it. But he was just discusted with the change and quit. I would bet there are more old moderators who did the same thing he did.
