Let me see if I can explain...
The primary upgrade that was made to GameBanshee last year was the migration of my old, archaic content management system to Joomla. Since Joomla and vBulletin are entirely different pieces of software that don't talk to each other, I had to install a "bridge" called JFusion that synchronizes user accounts across both systems.
Unfortunately, we discovered a side effect after the migration was complete - users can now only be banned with the Joomla user manager. This means that only Joomla administrators can take care of bans, and that leaves me and me alone. I'd love nothing more than to grant access to Fable or Xandax to take care of this, but Joomla isn't as neatly configured as vBulletin. Basically, in order to give someone the rights to do the banning, I'd have to give them administrative rights to alter anything and everything on the site.
It's not that I don't trust Fable or Xandax, I do. I'm just not comfortable handing out administrative rights when even a couple of accidental clicks could delete or otherwise knock out entire areas of the site.
It sucks, and I'm trying to find a solution. I've hired a team to work on other Joomla issues right now, and if all goes well, I'll be rehiring them for another project afterward and will be including some vBulletin/Joomla/JFusion fixes within the requirements.
Again, I'm only one man, and there's only so much I can do in a 24-hour period. In fact, I'm typing this post while my son naps - he's been home sick from daycare for the last two days, so I've been taking on dad duties when I literally have a massive pile of work in front of me. At the moment, I have two articles that need to be published, I have to spotlight our newly finished Dragon Age walkthrough, I have to spend a few dozen more hours with King's Bounty: Armored Princess to get the subsite launched, and there are some behind-the-scenes backup routines that I've been fighting with. I also post 99% of all our news, and that includes maintaining screenshots, trailers, box art, our RPG database, and all that fun stuff.
So please bear with me, I'm handling everything I can as quickly as I can
