If the account is deleted, he's not exactly staff any more...

that way of creating the block does a query on the database to create the list, since this person does not exist in the database it cant be in the block. the only way to have them in the block is to create the staff list manually and input each person.

Remove account deletion ability for your users. Let it have only administrator.

Well, this really would be asked in the support thread for the portal mod...   but, basically, create an html block and manually type in the names.

There are a number of other portal mods you could try.

As far as a specific mod to do what you want, not that I know of.

Mostly because it's not actually that useful to have a list of former staff displayed prominently, when a list of current staff is actually useful.

Who is going to care? If you put it in a post somewhere so their effort is recognised, sure, but on the front page? No one is going to care.

if so you can just create a new block of that type and enter the information and style it as you wish.

You're actually the first person I can think of that requested it. It also undervalues your current moderators because it just means they could all leave tomorrow and still be in the list.

You just put it in as plain HTML and add to it every time you change staff.

I use Simple Portal and a mod to automatically present the staff list in a block. The mod just add a new Permission to mark non-admins and non-mods as staff for display purposes in the block but other than that, it keeps current automatically.

just giving you an alternative, if you don't want to code anything but SP will probably make you want to reconfigure it to suit your tastes; however NOTE that it's current and future support is uncertain at this time.

Yeah i see your forums because you already add link on your signature , but you can change anything you want in this staff ?

for example :
A
Community Honored Staff .

do you have the ability to add users that dont exist any longer as members? this is what the op wants, not just creating groups for existing users. i dont think that is possible with a staff block that any portal offers. it has to be custom coded.

no, you would need to create dummy members and create a special group for them I guess.

I have an ex-staff group.

or you could just... as I have been saying...  make it a static HTML list

that would be SO MUCH EASIER that trying to mod something like this or put deleted user accounts into a special category or anything else...

I'm with Arantor on this. I certainly wouldn't care either.
In reality how many people actually look at a forums front page?  I hardly ever do.

As numerous have said such as Kindred, Arantor and -
do you know any html? or bbc depending on your portal?
if so you can just create a new block of that type and enter the information and style it as you wish.

That's the best way to go about it. Super easy if you are using a portal. If you are, ask in the support for that portal how you would go about it.

Simple Portal has a block that allows you to create a side block of Staff, you could then use a mod called Fake Users I think it called it allows you to create fake users. Or you could just create a couple of accounts for them that have fake drop off emails and make them admin and then use that portal block for staff. As mentioned their is no real reason to have such a set up if people will never see new post from them, however using fake users I do believe you can post with them as well. You'd have to look but those are my ideas.
