    Ok, so far I've counted: (not in any order)

    Administrator
    Global Moderator
    Moderator
    Supervisor
    Magazine Staff
    IRC Staff
    Technician
    Podcast Crew

    ...Am I missing any?

    Nope, I don't think you've missed any.

    Podcast Staff and IRC Staff don't have any extra power on the forum (except special forums they can access).

    Technicians keep the site running and code new features and improvements.

    Magazine staff are responsible for the articles on the portal, and also releases.

    Moderators and Global Moderators are the ones who do a lot of the dirty work. We warn people and answer reports, as well as doing the stuff Magazine Staff do.

    Supervisors and Admins are in charge of funding and partnerships, major site decisions (although these are often discussed with Moderators as well) and they generally run the place. They also have the same duties as Moderators and Technicians.

    Thanks. Before today I didn't even know there were Technicians! (Because of Narin, I do.)

    Haw.

    Speaking of "ranks", what do you folks think about having different member group ranks?
    Like, for instance, if you've been here so many years you'll get the title of 'veteran' and other similar things.
    I for one like the idea, though I'm not all for it, as it would make some people feel like they've got a large e-penis and so on.

    So do Magazine Staff and Technicians have the ability to close topics too? Or is it just for mods and admins?

    Don't we partially have that already with the GBAtemp Fan/GBAtemp Regular/GBAtemp Member thing? Or whatever those mini-levels were when you start.

    GameFAQs has a system like that already but it's as meaningless as the number of posts, honestly. Content over quality and age! [​IMG]

    I'm for it simply because then I'll finally get the respect I don't deserve [​IMG]. Seriously, I'm with Doomsday, you could take away post counts and all titles of any sort and we'd still be able to sort the wheat from the chaff, it's all about quality and personality.

    Sorry! Former Staff are former staff. They still have access to the staff forums and stuff. I think. I'm not sure if they still have power as well.

    I still have staff forum access, but you're right that I can't mod topics any more.

    Its scary to be posting as a mere member in this staff-rich thread...
    But...
    member groups would be good.

    Which is a lot.

    What would you say if 40% of all people had power over you?

    That's why I said it [​IMG]

    By the way, if anyone's interested (and they should be), there is a full page about all the members groups here. It seems to be pretty out of date now though, and I don't think I can edit it either (it's locked?).
