I'm sure this has been mentioned but cant seem to find it. Could you guys not considered adding a ip search feature & ban options to moderators? There are addons here that will do this but i really dont want to install an addon and rely on someone to keep it updated, personally i think it should be a core feature.
Maybe add permissions to allow them to have restricted admincp access without being admins?
I can only see Manage users and moderators that gives them way too much permissions, Edit users usergroups, change all addon permissions for each user, add moderators & even promote themselves to admin in one click.
That is the problem Chris , we don't want any of the moderators to have access to Admin Area. The limitations maybe working but this is not flexible enough for many different websites. Therefor we also will like to see various improvements on many different Moderator action.
