Policy on Plusnet Staff Having Admin Rights

Just something that's intregied me really, I'm not that bothered about it but as many of you know a few weeks ago Phil Richardson (acarr) stepped down from being a mod here.

Since then he has started working for plusnet and often posts using his staff account. The other day I noticed his username appeared in Green in the who's online section of the forum index - this means that the user has admin rights.

This lead me to wonder what is the policy on plusnet staff having Admin rights?

just wondering ;-)

Hi,

I'm not 100% sure Shockedops:

I am actualy looking to drop the admin rights, as I would never use them for any admin related functions. I just needed access to one of the internal forums.

The policy of moderation is clear though. A member of staff would report it to a moderator to deal with, unless there is a very obvious need for it to go, in which case, it would only be removed from view until a mod could deal with it.

Kind Regards,

I thought something like that would be the case - to stop people moaning about bias modding (though they do that anyhow :roll: ).

Thanks ;-)

We have had an ex employee become a mod, so it's only fair that an ex mod become an employee! :lol:

Hope you are enjoying it Phil.

I can't stand driving through Sheffield, never have been able to find my way around there without my trusty co-pilot (the missus). Do Sheffield City council have a 25 year rental agreement on traffic cones and JCB's? It seems no sooner have they finished playing with one part of the road system they start on another! :x

Hope the traffic woes don't spoil your days there. Cheesy

I often find that amussing too. The funny thing is we both moved to Sheffield from near(ish) Liverpool to work at PlusNet. Smiley

LOL. Great stuff Cheesy

It is certainly going well so far, aside from the fact I would like to live a little closer to Sheffield.

The traffic situation seems to annoy me too, and I have taken pleasure in getting lost at least once per day. Pleasure in thumping the steering wheel that is.

Indeed, I think that's the only question Phil's not been able to answer that I know of...
