does anyone remember what mod/admin stuff was necessary for mafia? iirc, there was a usergroup and the GM was a mod and a new forum for each?

The GM is made a mod temporarily of the mafia forum. I wouldn't create a new folder for the game, it just clutters things up. But that's what they used to do.

yeah, there's like a million old game forums archived, i am not going to do that. i'm just going to create a "current game" forum and change the name/mass move old threads for each new game

there was no user group for players. the GM became a forum mod (consider whether you want gms to have IP address access and some of the other abilities related to visitor messages, albums, etc).

yah, i've taken that into account when i looked at their permissions

i wonder if a group wouldn't be useful, though, to restrict access to players. otoh swapping people in and out would be a huge annoyance

eta: what does editing, etc. posts mean in the context of "Groups Permissions"

You could make GM's admins and make them do all the work!

that probably refers to social groups.

setting up a group for players is a pain in the butt. I've done it 2-3 times at TR for special games, and it's a lot of work. No way I'd agree to do that for every game.

I'm not sure how necessary it is, really. What is the benefit of having a specific player group?

well, theoretically, only players and mods could post in the game forum, but idk how big a deal it is bc i dont play mafia

It's hardly ever a big deal

Most regular RnR posters are currently signed up anyway and the rest are admins.
