This is supposed to be a tag that allow to search people of a given team for help or chat (if they want to be searched of course)

Teams in phpbb can be used as "semantic" tags... being in a team does not mean that you will have very extended privileges

Every member of the translator (i18n team) willing to show that he's in is supposed to be in that group. That's as simple as that.

(But this is not perhaps needed to add extended privileges for this group. I don't know. At first i thought it was a cool idea to allow "active" people, this mean people comitting their work for example, to be able to answer people on technical questions with the ability to edit topics - for example to add [resolved] tags - made by other people)

A group is just that : a group

Then with groups we can do things... allowing to share private forums, extend rights on parts of the board and so on.

And what we can do is just limited by our imagination

Moderators DO moderate :)

> Did you set "moderators" per forum or as "global moderators"?
You got confused because giving some extended privileges to groups makes phpbb mark them as "forum moderators". local

I changed the template to prevent it showing those groups as forum moderators

There is only one kind of moderators : the global moderators who ARE the moderators of the forum and whose job is to moderate.

Some users mays have locally extended privileges (to be defined precisely) depending on their role in the community to allow them to give a better forum experience to "standard" users.

That's all, that very simple, and easy to understand : only one kind of people moderate the forum : the moderators.
