	<strong>Edit Boards</strong><br>
	On this page you can create/reorder/remove boards, and the categories
	above them. For example, if you had a wide-ranging
	site that offered information on "Sports" and "Cars" and "Music", these
	would be the top-level Categories you\'d create. Under each of these
	categories you\'d likely want to create "Boards" for topics within each. It\'s a simple hierarchy, with this structure: <br>
	<ul>
		<li>
			<strong>Sports</strong>
			 - A "category"
			<ul>
				<li>
					<strong>Baseball</strong>
					 - A board under the category of "Sports"
					<ul>
						<li>
							<strong>Stats</strong>
							 - A sub-board under the board of "Baseball"
						</li>
					</ul>
				</li>
				<li><strong>Football</strong>
				 - A board under the category of "Sports"</li>
			</ul>
		</li>
	</ul>
	Categories allow you to break down the boards into broad topics ("Cars,
	Sports"), and the "Boards" under them allow users to post actual topics. 
	A user interested in Pintos would post a message under "Cars->Pinto". <br>
	Administrative functions for this page are to create new boards
	under each category, to reorder them (put "Pinto" below "Chevy"), or
	to delete the board entirely.';

			<strong>Newsletters</strong><br>
			This page allows you to send out newsletters to the members of the forum via personal message or email. First select the groups that you want to receive the newsletter, and those you don\'t want to receive the newsletter.

Finally, input the message you want to send and select whether you want it to be sent to members as a personal message or as an email.

You can choose to either accept or reject (delete) any member on the list by checking the box next to the member and choosing the action from the drop-down box at the bottom of the screen. When rejecting a member you can choose to delete the member either with or without notifying them of your decision.<br><br>

As an admin, when you view messages you can see the IP address that the user had at the time of posting.

Warning levels can be adjusted from a member\'s profile. The following additional options are available:
	<ul>

			This setting defines the percentage warning level a member must reach to automatically assign a "watch" to the member. Any member who is being "watched" will appear in the watched members list in the moderation center.

			<strong>Warning Level for Member Muting</strong><br>

		<li>
			<strong>Maximum Member Warning Point per Day</strong><br>
			This setting limits the amount of points a moderator may add/remove to any particular member in a twenty four hour period.
