Reporting a password bug! Please Help!
I am the site admin for my clan, and on the TS server (latest version) that I host on my WinXP box, I have given a couple others limited SA status. Only I can access the web admin page (i logon under superadmin), and what I have noticed is that when I try to uncheck an accounts SA status, the password fields are blank and when I try to submit I get an error prompting me for the user accounts password. It is more of a headache than anything, as I can change the password for that user when I am granting or revoking their SA, (we rotate duties in the clan on a regular basis).
So, I am curious. I had one user on the server, so I just asked him for his pw when I granted him SA, so it seems like the pw field is tied to the user account, and not asking for the super SA password. Am I missing something here? It seems like a Super SA should be able to grant a user SA status without having to know the users password. (I have disabled SA's granting and revoking other SA's SA status for a check and balance of power, so I LIKE that the only way to grant SA is for me to do it manually from the web admin window, and not from within the client) Is this a bug that needs to be addressed? Or if there is a purpose or a certain logic behind it, please share it with me.
I have searched the TS forums for info on this, and found nothing. So if this has been already addressed, please point me in the right direction. I apologize that my thoughts are a little scatterbrained, it's late.
Thanks in advance!

you indeed do not have to know the SAs password, you can enter anything in that field, and SET the password of that user while you also set a new status (with SA, or without). This was intended mainly as a safty net...so you cannot give somebody SA without making sure he has a strong password...many people choose stupid passwords like "1234", and making sure these kind of passwords are re-thought in the event of elevation to (or from) server admin.You think my answer is stupid ?
