PLAYER GRID MODERATING
We are moving closer to player grid accounts having the ability to moderate forums on the grid. This may look like someone in Gridworks or PR at NLM being a 'moderator' and making sure the 'legit forums' aren't devolving into anti-corp stuff.
PLAYER RESTRICTED FORUM POSTING
Players in specific jobs (think NewsDesk, WJF) can now be granted the ability, on their char grid account, to post on restricted forums like the Globe and the WJF announcements. This removes the need for a GM to take a news article or WJF post and add it via the NewsDesk account.
ADMIN LOGGING INTO ACCOUNTS
GMs no longer need passwords to log into NPC grid accounts, as the system authenticates them via their admin session. This also makes it more secure as we don't have to reset 427 passwords when someone leaves the staff.
Justices can now log into ANY grid account including player characters, without a password. This allows us to audit issues and also test things more effectively as players (like their ability to moderate a specific forum).
GRID ACCOUNTS AS ICLY HACKABLE
Our intention is for grid accounts to be ICly hackable, meaning your account could be compromised. Imagine hacking a specific WJF account with access to the Justice Force Announcements and throwing propaganda up, or hacking an NLM Moderator account and throwing shade at another corp to affect the corpshare market.
We are moving in this direction slowly, with the tools and processes we are putting in place. The steps above make it more and more useful to hack an account, though hacking an account is not yet implemented.
