I've created a usergroup or my forum for all mods, but i don't see the point in them. What do they do?

A "usergroup" is a way of controlling access to different areas of your forum. An example...

Suppose that all of us are interested in, er... tortoise racing. You create a new discussion board for all the fans of tortoise racing, and lots of people join. There are a number of different sections on the new forum, to discuss various aspects of the excitingly competitive tortoise scene.

So far, so good. BUT...

SOME of the members are those people who actually organize and judge the races. It would be good if we could have a discussion area for them, where they can plan the next series of races, without the rest of the members knowing about the surprise.

We create the new forum section, but set it so that it can only be accessed by members of the "Judges" usergroup - and all the Judges are made members of that usergroup.

This is a lot easier to administer than setting individual permissions for every person, on every form section. It's a short-cut.

Result: tortoise racing gains in popularity hand-over-fist. There is TV coverage, a world championship, tobacco company sponsorship, the works.

Excellent. Smile
