Requesting Administrator Actions

Note: Of course, moderator actions are available for moderators only. Standard users will not see the described buttons.


Modifying/deleting a post

You can alter a post by clicking  Modify in the upper right corner of the message. It is advised that you always give a reason why you had to alter the post. If a post is in violation with any of the rules, you can decide to delete only that post by clicking the  Delete button on the post, next to where you located the modify button. These two options are also available for registered members, but only for their own posts.

Moving a topic

When you feel a topic isn't suitable for the board it was posted in, you can move it to another board of the forum by selecting  Move Topic at the bottom of the topic. A message where the topic was moved to and who moved it will replace the original message so users know that it has been moved to another location.

Locking a topic

You can close a topic, so nobody can reply to it anymore, by clicking on  Lock Topic at the bottom of the screen. You can unlock it by clicking the same button. We advise you to give a reason why the topic has been locked.

Marking a topic as sticky 

Usually the messages are sorted by date. You may choose a message to be 'sticky' by clicking  Sticky . This message will then be the first one in the list, no matter what its date is.

Deleting a topic

If you feel a topic has no use, or is in direct violation with the agreement, you can delete it by clicking on  Remove Topic , located near the bottom of the display page. Please be very careful about your decision, because once deleted, a topic cannot be retrieved.


Requesting Administrator Actions

Administrators may

  • install new boards
  • establish a text filter
  • suspend a users membership
  • ban a user permanently
  • block IP or email addresses

If you feel that such an action is necessary, send a message to an administrator explaining what action to take and why.
