Verifying-only mods (Verifiers) have been added today. Detailing them in the changelog would be too large so they get their own thread:

• Can only be added by super moderators.
• Can approve and reject runs for a game.
• Can submit runs on behalf of others.
• Can add/remove tags. Those are neglected and letting verifiers add them will help.
• Cannot approve their own submissions; requires another mod to verify.
• Cannot edit game or leaderboard settings.
• Cannot edit runs. This will likely change.
• Has their own icon (a wooden sword).
• Doesn't do anything for series. Teams and Marathons are untested and aren't recommended for now. If you wish to test it, only add people you'd be willing to trust as a regular mod.

Questions, comments, or complaints can go in this or the feedback thread.

dude a wooden sword just like minecraft lol

tbh if I made the sprites in the first place they'd all probably copy the minecraft tiers lmao

There's a good chance they'll change once staff get their icons updated. We'll likely all get some kind of shield variations while game mods will use swords.

Great idea ! 🙂

But a level power for the user who requested the game on the site can be good too. (above Super mod). Because actually the requester of the game cannot remove other super mods.

A "head" mod position is in the works but needs to have some details worked out. It'll be a staff appointed position and not handed out as easily as super mod is. They'll get a few more benefits besides adding/removing supers.

@963romain: No, that isn't a good idea, because there are people on this site who request games specifically to snipe the moderator position for it.

Yea It's true.

This sounds like a great idea. Great way for busy active games to add more people to speed up the verifying process without having to grant access to everything related to the leaderboard.

I like this idea. There are certain people who are good at verifying runs but aren't so good at other things that a moderator might be responsible for, like interacting with other people or the community at large, setting up or naming categories, etc. The concept of breaking up mod powers into several roles and limiting what people can do is appealing to me.
