    Okay, I need some advice. I have this Admin account on my forum, which I use for posting secretly. So, basically no one knows that I'm this Admin guy. I use that to my advantage most of the time.







    So, I decided to test my most trusted moderator, and see what he would do. If he was offered an Admin account... Here was the conversation.






    Black Hawk Wrote:



    Hey, since you've been doing a great job as Moderator and I'm unable to post as much. Would you like to have access to my account? You could come on and use it if you need to Admin anything.



    -------



    [Moderator] Wrote:



    Uh sure.







    Thanks.







    But wait, wouldn't chaos get onto us?







    Wouldn't it be easier to just make this account an admin? (Not trying to sound power hungry, excuse me if I do)



    -------



    Black Hawk Wrote:



    I'm not sure if Chaos is a big bother. And, if you're trying to keep away from Chaos randomly being promoted to Admin will help.



    -------



    [Moderator] Wrote:



    Eh true. I guess this'll have to do for now.



    -------



    Black Hawk Wrote:



    Okay let me go find what my password was. I wrote it down somewhere...



    -------



    [Moderator] Wrote:



    Maybe you should change it so you keep your personal password well personal.








    Then, I set him the changed Admins password. So, basically they 'kept that from me'. So, I'm deciding where I should take this. Because, I ran some tests (once he had Black Hawks account) and he still never told me. He just said he'd 'ask' the Admin to do stuff for him. And, of course I played along.







    Please post your comments on this, and what you think I should do. Feel free to share stories as well!











    Note: I understand this was a set up, but if that account was a real Admin and that happened. I may never have known it. I also wanted to see how much he is willing to tell me before the line is drawn. I plan to do it with more staff now, because I want to test exactly how much they will tell me. And, exactly how much I should trust them....

    That's actually a very clever way of seeing what your staff really think of you providing they don't work out that it's you.







    My advice is that if you are going to use that method in the future, be careful.

    Thanks for the hint. And, I make 'the other Admin' go against some of what I say. If I do too much it'll be a dead give away. If I do too less then it'll be up for debate. But, he goes against some of what I say, and has his own personality. So, I try to keep it that way. You could try the same method, but don't let us know.

    Here's the latest of the conversations...










    Black Hawk Said:



    Liking it so far?



    ---



    [Moderator] Said:



    Yup. Chaos still doesn't expect I use your account a bit lol.



    ---



    Black Hawk Said:



    How are you?



    Okay, good to hear it.



    ---



    [Moderator] Said:



    And doing well, how about yourself?



    Alright, ticked at the new RuneScape forums.



    ---



    Black Hawk Said:



    I edited out the old word, me no like cussing! And, I haven't seen them. I barely play Runescape, just here and there. I was recruited for my knowledge of Mybb.



    ---



    [Moderator] Said:



    Lol alright.







    I see. Chaos told me a lot of admin stuff, not knowing that I already knew it lol.








    Apparently my most trusted moderator and myself (Black Hawk) are planning against me (Chaos) in an odd way. I'm truthfully very glad I did this, because I was going to give [Moderator] Admin or something... I recommend you find a system to do with your staff, this will help me scan my staff for bad people. I think I'll have to make a few more Admins though...

    That is a pretty good way to evaluate staff, but be careful as this can backfire severely.

    I know, I kept very careful on what I did. And, in the in it worked out. Here's what he said.














    Haha, that's a great way to test staff. What did the community (you) say about it? And, I think that's funny, not annoying.








    ---










    Sorry, I just did it so Black Hawk (the admin account a.k.a me) didn't get in trouble.








    Well, that's been sorted. Thanks for your comments, and please keep posting your thoughts on this idea.

    Actually, that account was useless. I made him for no reason at all, mostly for feature testing. And, this was a staff trust test, not giving away an Admin account.











    (In the end I actually wound up giving the account away. Believe it or not... )

    My advice is kinda the same as sbfc. Be careful when using that method.

    It is effective though, I have proof. I may even use it again...
