Custom titles (missing titles after user status change)


Here is the scenario, a user on a board is a staff member (moderator is this instance). As a moderator the user has a custom title so others know who they are.

Now, the moderator resigns and has their title removed. This should cause the system to show whatever custom title their posting activity entitles them to on their next post (in this scenario there are more than one "auto titles" enabled on the board.

Instead of getting the "auto title" though I find out that the user now has a blank space where the custom title would normally show up!

Admins or board owners can go in and fix this by manually granting the "auto title" to former moderators but until they do so the users title remains a blank, even after the former moderator makes multiple posts as a regular user.

I do not know if this holds true when a former moderator reaches a new "auto title" since there is no way to tell how long or how many posts were made after the moderator became a regular user in this scenario...

I was unable to replicate this just now.

Steps I took:

1) Created a level at a test board, set to auto-grant at 5 posts.

2) Logged into a test account, and made a post at the test board to make that account a member of that board.

3) Granted moderator status to that test account.

4) Refreshed the page where the post was made, and saw the 'Moderator' title.

5) Revoked moderator status.

6) Refreshed the page again, and saw a blank title, as expected.

7) Made a 2nd post with the test account.

Result: The correct title (Registered user) showed up.

Re:


#@&? So if this is not causing the problem why do I have multiple former mods with totally blank titles?

I don't know. emoticon If you tell me which board(s) and who the mods were, I'll be happy to take a look.

You're absolutely sure they posted after they were de-modded, right?

Re:


OH yes,

Jinzy, 1lost1, and chefkim all posted at TRD after they stopped being "official mods."

There were others, Josh and Sertab come to mind but I found their BotM titles and gave those back to them so they wouldn't be blank anymore.

There is another user but their name is eluding me after doing almost 4 hours of editing and updating both CSS code and titles...

I thought I saw Chefkim posting less than 6 months ago but Jinzy and 1lost1 have vanished. --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

That's also the reason I left them blank so if you or Thor needed to see an example there would still be a couple I could point to...

Uh oh, you'd better hide. emoticon

Whatever happened before, it seems to be working normally now. If you want to give them titles, feel free. emoticon
