What is the difference between Administrators and Moderators? Supporting Members and Members?

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.

Moderators can delete a post or thread...administrators can delete the entire forum ;)

Yes, the questions have been answered above.

At the moment, I do not believe we have any moderators. The 3 of us are admins. Admins have more behind the scenes access. I asked Dom and Jeb to help me out with the forum a while back - that way things can be dealt with if I am not around. I asked both of them to help me out.

I've run many forums over the years - I usually never pick someone to be a moderator who asks me for the job. Usually, the people who WANT to be one don't always act appropriately in their regular forum behavior.
