Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Messed-up forum legend

Pls Diff. What is this?

EEforums Legend

  1. New Users? New User? It's one or the other, and all the other tags are plural;

  2. Most of us are yellow but not new users - there's no category for us. Aren't we Forum Users?

  3. Greg is not a category;

  4. Administrators should be renamed to Forum Administrators because it's not specific enough (~admin of what?). Likewise with Moderators;

  5. Why are two tags pink? Ik there's nobody in the EE PR role, but the colours should be unique. Alternatively, it's overwhelmingly likely that anyone who gets that role in the future will already be an EE admin, so the tag is unnecessary to begin with, at least until that time;

  6. Maybe re-order them into some kinda vague hierarchy.

How about this?

Legend: Forum Administrators, Forum Moderators, EE Administrators, EE Moderators, Forum Users, New Users


EDIT: Yeah ik the last two tags are still the same colour, but making new users blue or something would upset the current order of things, in which yellow=normal user. Maybe new forum users shouldn't be singled out either.

EDIT 2: Ok I've contradicted myself by scrapping EE PR but then adding Forum Users, which supercedes New Users. This still needs work.

Re: Messed-up forum legend

2. Guess defaults don't get a category
3. Greg is still special IIRC
4. I'd go for Forum Admin/Forum Mod. A bit shorter
5. kinda a good point there, but the emphasis was giving one specific user the job of modding the Game Business information.

New User is for users the forums consider suspicious. They have heavy restrictions until they're lifted by a mod or admin. New Users is for your average everyday new users.

The "main" group doesn't get a note in the legend.

GregBot has special permissions, Greg is his user group. There is no more GregBot so now there's no Greg user group either.

The user group name has been changed to match the user title for both groups.

EE PR is just an EE Admin with moderation abilities over Game Business. Their primary role is an EE Admin so their title is still EE Admin and their name is still pink. The name "EE PR" is just the name given to the user group with the different permissions, they're still EE Admins.

Cannot do.

I don't know what permissions Greg needed though...

Re: Messed-up forum legend

A forum legend should contain a label for every group of users of the forum. To not have a caption for the largest group is stupid and defies both logic and the point of a legend.

With no members in it, it doesn't need to exist.

true but ideally whatever purpose it was serving it would continue to serve shortly after its break. So it should make a return at some point. Easier to just add someone to a group than it is to re-insert whatever settings need to be used

otherwise I can't think of a reason
