-More reliable mods

Moderators would be so hateful against users. Not that I've seen it, but many people complain that a mod did something for no reason. I see your point in all of this, but I was just making a few points that most of AG's community would be fond of. Not just/or me.

They are Moderators for some reasons - one of those reasons is that they are very trustworthy.

If a user is complaining it must be because they were banned - they broke a rule and got banned. Moderators don't take action against users for no reason. They also lock or delete threads for a reason - there's no reason to dislike a Moderator or think that you need more 'reliable' Moderators because they enforce the rules well.

Yeah, but most of those ideas are horrible.

Giving users power inside their own thread like that is just bad - a lot of people would abuse it.

I understand if you get a lot of good reputation then you could possibly lock your thread if you want, but not off the bat like that. But still, I don't think the Administrators would give users powers like that.

have the ability to clear spam from the thread

No, this will be a moderator function. Same with locking. As I've previously mentioned elsewhere, we MAY give the original poster the ability to submit their thread to the moderation team as a "please lock my thread" request.

Different text colors

No, this has already been discussed.

I'm not sure if this is discussed in overall community-wise or strictly on the Reputation System of AG3, but has anything been ultimately decided about posts that have plenty of negative votes, user and mod wise? Will users have the option to automatically hide/filter out posts that have X amount of negative votes, mods automatically notified of said posts, internal systems automatically notified? Or is it out there already and I need to go search for it, because I've been playing the part of Rip Van Winkle recently? :P

Freak, some of what you're asking will depend on the forum engine we use/build, so I can't comment on them. We don't even know yet if we'll have a down-vote option, but I'm sure we'll have a "flag this thread" option for moderators to see.

And the Reputation system will come after AG3 launches, too.

Yeah, the entire admin team, John,Cormyn,Dan etc... and the entire mod team have to accept them. That is pretty strict screening.

The admin team do not have to unanimously approve them, but the rest of the current moderator team do, since they all have to work together.

Will the AG3 forums support other text? Because right now as you know, many stuff come out as ש˙∆˚לום.

We will support UTF-8 characters, but comments and forum posts will still need to be written in English.

I am unaware of what that is. Is it what you are currently using on AG2?
