Now, I have setup one moderator via the Moderators link in the User section. I assigned one forum category to this moderator, assigned all the required permissions and also checked the Moderator usergroup for this mod.
When I logged in as her (via a plugin) I saw that she had all the mod controls in the assigned forum but when I checked all the other forums (unassigned in the Moderator section) she also has moderator ability in those too, supposedly from the permissions of the Mod usergroup.
So my question is, what is the point of assigning people via the Moderator function when assigning all the permissions via a usergroup does the same thing? Is there any advantage to doing that.
I suppose my question is coming from the VB point of view where all such permissions were assigned via the Moderator usergroup.
