Hey,

i recently created a new custom member group with a new position and the name color is in blue,


but when the member posts he shows up as a moderator and is in green ?


why is this? i double checked his profile and made sure his member group and position is the custom one which is blue name and blue starts.


Can anyone help ?

Hi L_ith,

That's how it's meant to work. If a user is a 'Board Moderator' then they will always appear as a moderator for that board, no matter what member group they are in - unless it's an Administrator or Global Moderator.

If they are the only person in the group that you have created and you want them to moderate and keep the group colour, then the best thing to do would be to remove the individual username from being the moderator and make that group the 'Moderator Group' for those boards instead.

One thought  -  You can edit the colors of every member group in Admin Center.

That won't sidestep the issue with the color of the Post-Dependent (count) level the member is at, they will still show by their 'appointed' color.

What we did was create user names just for moderating - so there would be a 'JoeBob' and a 'JoeBob as Moderator'.


Good Luck

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Just wish it was simple

Mod in green
Global mod in ornage (my color)
Admin in red

and new colors will be what they are and there names will be a color when they post aswel

i hope YaBB have the option to add more to the static route. lol
