Question "Godly" Admins?
Are there any admins on this forum that have the ability to go into accounts, change passwords, change usernames, that sort of thing?

I don't think they have the capability to do so.

Though I do remember on skype Hughsie speculating as to whether he could ban a fellow admin.

I am fairly sure he was somewhat drunk at the time.

A single action is worth more than the words it takes to describe it.

Yes.

If you excuse, me, I must now develop a conspiracy theory revolving around this information, using it as a basis that i cannot trust any of you as I cannot verify who is truly logged into what account.

Pretty much, if admins couldn't reset user passwords and get rid of spambot accounts the admins wouldn't be admins.

So... what are you trying to say? How dare we play god? Big Grin

For the most part the policy on this forum has been to use admin privileges as little as possible. It's not always easy.

Back then Hughsie wondered about the admin banning simply because the option of banning shows up for all moderators. Thing is the forum doesn't set you ban users with higher privileges than yourself. He was probably drunk too, though thats neither here nor there! Tongue

Damnit, that makes sense.

Stop making sense while I am conspiracy-ing! Angry
It makes it hard to make ridiculous, illogical scenarios!

I thought it was already established that everyone you ever interacted with on this forum was really a sock-puppet run by me!

Weeping I have no life!

It's all I do day and night... Log into different accounts with proxy servers and have conversations with my multiple personalities.
