On a Clock Crew website, the staff are the people in charge of maintaining it and determining its policies, which range from very lax to extremely strict depending on those in charge.
Staff also promote community projects and guide the progress and orientation of new members.
Administrators, or admins, are senior staff with the most clout in the running of any given Clock Crew site. They have the highest level of access, and often act act as the leaders. They are often chosen for reasons of temperament, seniority, technical ability, and/or the respect of other staff. Administrators have all the access and generally exercise the same responsibilities as moderators, but some prefer to delegate that task and operate within their unique qualifications.
On the present iteration of Clockcrew.cc, administrators are identified with orange usernames.
Often, a site will have a person who acts as head admin. They will sometimes be the webmaster of the site, and will nearly always have FTP access. The time they spend in charge will often be referred to as their "reign", and the site as "their" site, often regardless of technical ownership. They often function as the figurehead and de-facto leader of the Clock Crew during that time.
Moderators, also known as mods, are staff working under the direction of the admin team, whose responsibilities generally involve the maintenance, discipline, and quality-control of the forums and chat for a site. They are generally divided into regular moderators and super or global moderators.
Regular moderators are junior staff, generally assigned to one or a few forums, with the responsibilities of managing threads in their designated board. They generally are not included in senior policy discussions, and do not have the ability to ban users. They are generally selected on temperament and the subject of the forum they moderate.
On this site, regular moderators are identified with purple usernames.
Super moderators, sometimes called smods, are senior staff responsible for overseeing all forums. They are also charged with disciplinary action, such as banning misbehaving posters. They generally are included in policy discussion, and are selected largely on seniority and temperament.
