• Access??

    From HusTler@VERT/PHARCYDE to All on Monday, November 29, 2021 07:44:23
    Why would a SysOp make this sub "Synchronet Discussion" a closed area? Closed meaning only SysOps can post or reply messages. Any thoughts? Other then SysOPs can assign access levels to whatever they want. I know that. Is the message area "Synchronet Discusion" meant to be a closed area? I didn't get the memo
    if thats the case. Clarification please?

    ... A conclusion is simply the place where someone got tired of thinking.

    No. This sub is for discussion of Synchronet by all interested parties, as far as I know. Not just sysops.

    The "Conferences" table on the DOVE-Net wiki page shows what the access requirements should be:

    Why would a SysOp make this sub "Synchronet Discussion" a closed area?

    Probably they misunderstood the purpose/nature of the sub.

    didn't get the memo if thats the case. Clarification please?

    Why are you asking?

    If you saw some BBS that had this area restricted, you should ask the sysop directly. They probably just made a mistake and need to fix it.

    If somebody told you it should be restricted, they were wrong.

    I don't think it needs to be closed to sysops. It is not here.

    The bottom line is a sysop can grant (or not) access to any, all, or
    none of the forums they carry. Most have rules and they can raise the
    ire of a moderator or group owner. In general, follow the rules, but
    they're well in their right to restrict access.

    well he should ask the sysop of pharcyde. i think nick just did it because he confused it with the synchronet sysop echo.

    Thanks for the clarification. I asked the SysOP about it and he offered to give me access if I was a visiting SysOP. I wasn't interested in being part of a SysOp only Synchronet Discussion sub. I felt it should be open to anyone. But that's just me I guess.

    I have posting priviliges on Pharcyde. It's another BBS I don't have posting or responding access. I thought it was strange so I asked about it. It's the SysOPs right to remove posting priviliges on any sub he/she wants. I just don't understand the logic behind it. Synchronet is a great BBS program and "Synchronet Discussion" is a great place for folks thinking about running it. Not just SysOPs. There's already too many SysOp to SysOP boards in my opinion. ;-)

    And nowadays, most BBS users *are* (or at least *were*) sysops, so the "sysops only" restriction doesn't make as much sense as it once did.

    Yeah - sorry, I didn't realize that you were posting from someone else's BBS at the time. Evidently that sysop misunderstands the sub's purpose.

    part of a SysOp only Synchronet Discussion sub. I felt it should be open to anyone. But that's just me I guess.

    Since the sub is networked, that's kind of a moot. A non-sysop can post from another BBS and it will show up on his board.

    He may have had reasons for locking it down, or it may be a mistake. I'd send him a link to the wiki page that shows the access requirements. If he doesn't want to fix it ... move on, I guess.
