even as mods they should not be able to change members groups.

Then don't give them that permission. By default in SMF, only users in the Administrator group have permission to modify accounts.

Also, 2.0 now has an option to protect membergroups, so that the group settings and memberships are only accessible by people with admin status, even if you did give other groups permissions to change membergroups in general.

The prob is I think he went to join the armed forces so finding him could be a bit tricky.  :-\
Just chiming in on this situation as a caution against making supermods and locking original owners into stuff.  I started out being a trusted co-admin with host access, but the owner disappeared and I expect it was a medical emergency (getting deployed would put a trusted co-admin in similar dire straits, IMHO) as being stuck with a board, and then wind up paying for it because original owner was no longer making payments to the host.

If a supermod/helper lockout had been installed in my case, the whole site would have gone into default and ergo offline.  I urge the owner to find a trustworthy tester/co-admin because you never know when you're gonna get hit by a bus and your co-pilot's gonna need to take over.
