MVPs - Members who are judged by the community to be helpful, who write and share useful code, who help the development of AutoIt. These users have the same rights as normal members but get a team icon, a little more attachment and PM space, and access to the MVP Chat forum section.

Moderators - The forum police. This is not a democracy and each of the mods has their own distinct personality. They have the rights to edit posts, delete posts, ban users, delete users, IP ban, etc. Let the poster beware.
