I'm just wondering if it means that everyone who gets publishing rights gets special privileges. That's all.
Nah. It isn't about publishing at all. Just specifics about someone's job.
Who chooses new Admins, anyway? Is it PS? or the DD Staff? or a combination of both? I'm just curious.
DD admins pick new admins for the comics management end of things, I assume when it seems like they're getting overwhelmed with the current amount of work. I'm not exactly sure how that works since I'm the “newest” admin in that regard. PS doesn't really “choose” admins, it's more like they need specific jobs done and the person needs admin status to do that (like posting featured comics or the upcoming interview stuff). The PS folks absolutely don't want to manage any of the comic stuff. They're happy with us DD 5 to keep doing that - the PS people know that regular DD users would resent someone new stepping in trying to tell them what to do. (Why mess with what already works, you know?)
I'm not really sure where Volte sits in there, to my knowledge he doesn't do the regular admin stuff like manage comments or admin the forum. He does do all the coding and figures out new features and things though. :) So he's the bridge I suppose.
So what exactly will this editor status consist of?
I'm sure there was something in the admin forum about what she does, but I can't seem to find it now and my fish is almost done so I have to hurry!
Some of that has been answered already in this thread, it isn't really a status inasmuch as a job position. :) She doesn't “edit” anything to my understanding, but it is her job to ensure a new featured comic goes up each day, she'll be tasked with making the news page more organized and have a few more features, etc. She'll have nothing at all to do with people's comics, if that's the worry. All of the PS admins are very invisible, back-end sort of positions.
