    How does one delete a role. I accidentally created a "new role," and cannot find a way to delete it.

    Go to the roles tab of the server settings, click on the role you don't want, scroll all the way to the bottom, then click on the trashcan icon.

    @Kratos'Asshat anyone who has a role will inherit that color, including offline users, however anyone offline will be set to gray.

    All right, we've set several roles for users. The only role that applies and stays applied is an "Admin" role. When I apply the role of "Member" to a member, when they log out then back in it removes the role from their name.

    In relation to the new hierarchy update - Add message deletion into the hierarchy, people of lower rank shouldn't be able to delete messages of a higher rank.

    I have an issue with the new role hierarchy, in that you can not edit your own roles. We have a pretty small group, but we would like for not all the mods to be admins persay, but at the same time we would like the moderators to be able to change their own colors. As such, we just usually set a permissionless color rank over the user, that they edit their color that way.

    Now, they can't change that role anymore even if it's not their admin rank. I myself, even a top level admin, can't change my own color without contacting the owner of the server. Is there a way we can disable this, or at least make certain roles not stick to this? I understand that you don't want your admin/mods changing their own permissions, but setting colors for themselves is half the fun!

    I'm not sure if it's a bug or not as well, but if you set a role to display on the online list, but set that role to not have a color, it won't display on the online list anymore. This would have been a solution, as the admin ranks would be colorless themselves, but the user would just take on a lower permissionless color rank that they had the ability to change.

    I know this is all about aesthetics, but it really seems like there could be a way around this/more customization to how the role hierarchy is used in each server.

    Yea... with what Nina said, there really should be that at least **option**, to allow a role to manage it's own permissions, and just have that not allow them to lock themselves out of editing it, which I believe was done before this release anyway. The highest role especially, should be able to manage it's own permissions... granting only a single person (the server owner) access to modify that, isn't very practical :/

    Hierarchy should at least be a toggle-able option; I have a server with just a few friends, and we all want to have the same permissions. However, hierarchy is impeding on our ability to do that while having individual roles (and colors). If it was at least toggle-able, we wouldn't have to deal with only having one role for the whole server, which is lame.

    Can you have more than one "owner" for a server? What if that person decides to leave? (or more realistically magically disappears?!?)

    I'm an administrator on a Server, how can I add a role to someone?

    I am having the same issue as EncounterBeth. My other admins cannot add roles but only I can since I am the owner.

  • Avatar
    Cilantrelle

    @EncounterBeth Right-clicking that user's name and selecting a role in the drop down menu should work, as long as you have the proper permissions to do so.

    @Kelpup the "administrator" permission only allows for roles below theirs to be added or created.

    Huh.

    I will have to test this out then since one of my admin role people had issues trying to add to a user. I think that is what I meant since they couldn't add a role to a user.

    @Kelpup could be a number of things. If you look back into it and still have troubles, add me on Discord (Cilantrelle#5088) and I'll be happy to help.

    Sounds good! I'll have someone test it out today and get back to you if I have trouble.

    Didn't tell me how to lock roles .-.

    Cilantrelle

    @lillyme there's no manual "lock roles" feature. If you're not the server owner, any roles above your highest role (including your highest role) will be locked to prevent you from changing their details.

    How can I set permission to my Mods "assign role to newcomers" without giving them rights to manage roles ?

    How tf do I lock roles?!

    Cilantrelle

    @Medi Locked roles are just roles above or equal to a user's highest role, unless they're the server owner.

    How do I set multiple roles at the same level without those users having the ability to modify each others roles? For example: Game1 Leader, Game2 Leader, Game3 Leader. All should have "leader permissions" and have access to their associated "GameX Leader Chat" but not other leader channels. They shouldn't be able to remove other game leaders below them... right now, they can due to the hierarchy method.
