Stop delete of own account
« on: January 10, 2017, 09:42:28 PM »
I have made myself Owner with Administrators permissions. I have two other Administrators with me.

My question is it possible to stop these Admin. from deleting their own accounts.

I guess I'd also need to know how to transfer these permission to only me the Owner..

Thanks

Ron..

Anything is possible, if you can code it...   in this case, you would have to code it, because it is not possible in the base code and has never been made into a mod

This mod is old but may work- and should do what you want if it installs- http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1306

Unlikely that an rc1 mod will work..

And if they have real administrative accounts, it would be possible for them to uninstall mods anyway. Or add a mod that undoes whatever changes you might make.
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. It seems you have chosen which, and now I must do the same.

Thanks Kindred, I am not a coder. I didn't think it was possible, but I had to ask..

It is just that one of the Administrators deleted themself by accident..

Thanks Arantor, yea they have the real account, I added the Owner with Admin. permissions..

I'll see if there is a way around this mess.

Thanks

You can set up a second administrator group that has less permissions than real admins.

Got it solved.. Bryan helped me, took the Admin. Group and made it the Owner Group, took the Owner Group and made it the Admin. Group then gave it limited permissions.
