So, in BB, everyone is a mod, huh? While that sounds good, I can easily see abuse of the system. I'm sure that you have that worked out, though. I have a few questions on administration now. With everyone being moderators, I see issues like bans and suspensions falling on the admins.
Actually, my real question is, where is the line between mod and admin? Please, just tell borderline stuff(I'm pretty sure mods cannot make and delete forums).
I might appear to be rambling, but how are you going to balance mod powers? I see the best way to balance power is democracy.
Here is a sample:
Lets say someone locks a topic for a "flamewar". It would take, say, about 20 votes (the number of votes dependant on # of users) Once that vote count is reached, the topic is unlocked. That easily prevents power abuse. We could use this petition system for anything from stickies to bans.
