I am thinking cynwulf has spent way too much time time thinking about this.
I don't think we need a special treasurer's account as they should have no permissions any different from an ordinary member (no admin rights, no moderator rights).
Good point! I was going to argue that they would need special powers because they have the DNS and hosting access but that doesn't actually matter. The treasurer would just have to accept the fact that he is the hosting/DNS contact person and his financial account is the one tied to the bills but that he has no power regarding the actual forum.
If we can then take away moderator privileges from the admin we have three equal categories (not levels) of staff - all with different roles, all equal with no overlaps.
Perfect. We have the treasurer for a couple financial tasks, the admin for a couple maintenance tasks, the custodians for a couple maintenance tasks. Done.
Exactly. Something that clearly lays everything out and leaves no room for any member to misunderstand how things work around here.we need a strong constitution that we are all bound to, which we all uphold and which no one is exempt from
Lets git er done
