I totally agree, I don't want my super-mods to have this ability. Managing users groups its the administrator work. If I'll choose to give this ability to someone, I'll give him acp access with restrictions.
And I agree with Marcher Technologies, you need to give us the ability to choose functions for each group. At my forum I have 3 different groups of moderators, every group has different function, but the set of permissions I give them, is not matching they work. We need more flexibility at those things.
I would like to see this option in forum a settings, becouse in some cases like online streaming videos users like to see the last comments on the first page, and not some old replys from years ago.
I'm surprised IPB still doesn't have that option.
