    Default Administrators vs Moderators

    What is the difference between an administrator and a moderator? What priviledges do they both share? What priviledges do the administrators have that the moderators lack, or vice versa?

    Bolded for truth.

    Anyway, I suppose I should ask here...Then if that's the difference between Mods and Admins, why are there Moderaters and then Super Moderaters. Is there even a difference?

    The difference is the super moderators wear tights and have secret identities.

    Thank you. I was viewing the Forums Leaders page just now, and I noticed that there are 8 administrators and 5 moderators. Why is that? Shouldn't there be less administrators since they are higher than the moderators?

    Three of our current admins (Cinder, CosmicDebris, Battle_Franky) recieved that rank as a sign of gratitude for the amount of work they've contributed to AP/AP Forums beyond their normal ranking. Jonas is head of the AP main-site and is the superior of the editors, ocean heads the whole ship I know The_Dude is also an administrator but I don't know his history, all I do know is he's a old trusted veteran and...I don't know the other two?

    wanderer-zero used to be the server dude and Randy was a website fellow in the distant past, but they've retired.

    I'm not even sure if I know all the current moderators. e1n, Roz, Carly, taboo...who else? ?_?

    Do I even know the current Navigators? o_O

    RoboBlue, bevin and dythim.

    Carly doesn't seem to be a supermoderator according to the forum leaders.

    How did oceanizer get the top spot? Did the previous "head administrator" select oceanizer? Was there some sort of vote? Who was the previous "head administrator"? How long has oceanizer been the "head administrator"?

    I'm pretty sure he created the forum so he's the head admin.

    o has been an admin for about 3 years now, before which he was a mod for about a year, and was given this position by either Aftershock or Randy or one of the older guys. dunno if he actually made the forums

    You know, you brought up a good point. Who did found this site? I doubt it was oceanizer since you (taboo) said that oceanizer had to work his way up the ladder to get the top spot.

    Nope. The moderation staff here have their work cut out for them, especially in the Anime/Manga forum for OP. It's pretty unberable for the sane so that should say a lot about their fortitude.

    That had to be recent, I seem to remember him complaining not too long ago about people not remembering he once was an administrator.

    ...

    As for our founder, Carter mentioned him once but I've forgotten the name. AP was founded by people from KF, that's all I know.

    About a day ago he locked a thread made by Gary Potter a few hours earlier before that he gave me an infraction.

    I never knew that but then again I wasn't here at the start.

    It was a bunch of people from the old Shonen Anime site's forums. I can't really remember names. Maybe the old threads are archived somewhere. Like basically evilgamerx and aftershock are names that come to mind but those might be straight out of my ass for all I know.

    Couldn't have been Steven he and Gary were working on that Junk Anime site at the time.

    The copyright is from 2000 - 2008 and yet the oldest threads remaining are from February 2005. Does anyone know what happened to the old threads, why they were deleted, and are they still in some section of the site that no one goes to?
