Supporting Members pay a small fee that goes towards running and maintaining this forum in exchange for access to a separate subforum and a status change to Supporting Member.
Administrators and Moderators is a good question. I was a moderator, now I'm an administrator, but I'm not sure what exactly changed. There are some forum functions that admins can do that mods can't, but really this forum is really tame in that department. We don't have to do much post editing or deleting except for classified posts for not following the rules.
