user permissions in the COE board

Post by thorondor » Wed Mar 09, 2011 6:11 pm

recently i found out that there have been some very strange settings of user permissions. for example, those with guest status had read-only access to the COE discussion board, while many of the council reps had not.

then, netrep mikko decided to make the netrep board invisible again to others (as it had been the case in the past).

so here is a short list of permissons in this forum:
- online community: all (= registered users have full access and guests have read-only access)
- events: all
- rules and rulings: all - except the netrep discussion forum: netrep team
- market place: all
- alternate game formats: all
- national councils: all
- COE discussion: COE members, council representatives
- technical stuff: all


btw: there is a pre-defined group called BOTS. whats the sense of having these BOTS on board???

I would say I don't mind having this board open for people to see; I feel transparency helps engender confidence and allows for a greater degree of input from the community.
Remember, NetRep rulings are official. This does not necessarily mean they are correct.

You probably aren't playing Fallen Wizards correctly.

I couldn't agree more.

Yep, CoE section should be/remain visible for all users.

I can understand Mikko's decision. I wonder if CoE members should not be added to the list though (not that I enjoy reading NetRep discussions)

CoE board should remain open for all to see.

I noticed a CoE Prize Stuff sub forum? But it's password protected how does one get access? As I have a bunch of product I've been holding onto for prize support as seen in this years nation's cup.
