XF 2.2 Why admin is not able to simple "ban" a moderator?


Hi, I just wonder why admin/superadmin is not able to ban a moderator via simple ban button like in regular users, I have to go to admin panel, remove the mod and then I can ban him. Is there any way to enable this?

I suppose you don't ban a moderator every day and that such a decision is well thought out.
So a priori the small procedure seems appropriate in this case.

Maybe add them to a special usergroup with the extra permissions you want them to have, instead of making them a full moderator, so you can easily reverse it (or just ban them)

Adding members to a user group with moderator level permissions does not make the account have moderator status.
Accounts must be explicitly promoted to be true moderators.
