It appears wordpress provides means for:

  1. High level maintenance: administrator
  2. Mid level policing: moderators
  3. Public and private comments: members
  4. Public readers: anybody with a browser

HOS is managing this site very well. Does the system allow any other categories than the 4 listed?

Good question. I think the board members wanted to stay with wordpress because it allows for continuity that works, and for a couple of technical reasons that I'm sure you would understand but I don't.

Downhill, the #1 server administrator(s) usually grants passwords for #2 moderator(s), in turn both these levels can delete objectionable posts, or such as, self serving advertising.

We #3 members whom are granted a read/write access. I am unsure if also by invoking communications via the currently active green "Contact" label at top if we can write up to #1 and/or #2?

I do know that contact page fire-walled for server safety just as the write access inside forums posts. Upon testing other ways of contacting Idyllwild as (me) #3 that no firewall exists, but why not?

Seems like a loophole that needs to be cured.

I also see as a #3 very many people newly listed as (us) #3 members that never write which is a little mysterious. Maybe they forget the passwords(?) More feedback from the community (ie. survey) of newly registered guests, if possible, would be appreciated.

Idea: Place the green contact form page access towards "guests".

The one thing that I was wondering about was:  If the HOS ceases to exist, what would the Forum itself be called in order to be easily identifiable as to its purpose....

However, I must say that Rooney's post certainly has posed much more important and salient questions than I would ever have come up with.

Given how riven the Internet is with mischief, I bow to Rooney's questions.
