As a sub-topic of the increased permission settings in vanilla 0.93 I'd just like to mention the following... I was browsing down the discussions list shifting topics between categories as i sometimes do when people have stuck something in 'random' but which might be useful for people searching for an extension under the extensions category only and assuming it's not there (or whatever) when i noticed that the big man himself (tut tut) had carelessly left his '0.9.3 Scalability' topic under 'random' which i thought was probably more appropriate under 'vanilla' so i moved it in for him. But then i thought that while (presumably!) mark as a higher power in this case doesnt mind, there may be forums out there where higher moderators (admins if you will) would get annoyed with lower moderators (mods) messing with something of theirs, even though essentially it's within their power. It all really comes down to forum owners choosing their moderators properly and assigning them the correct levels, but there are cases where essentially permissions will overlap so i just wondered what you guys thought about how to deal with situations like this... i.e. in irc (closest similie i could think of), you can have 'half op' users who can voice/kick/ban people of a lower or equal power to them (standards, voiced, or half opped users) but cant touch the 'ops'. I suspect realistically this is far over-complicating things for the purposes of a nice simple forum, but i thought i'd drop it in there anyway.
