Why ability doesn't show in every users profile?

+1
−0

Why abilities don't show in every user page? Take a look at @Mithrandir's profile according to his profile he doesn't have any ability. But, I don't think that he doesn't have ability. I was checking other users if they also don't have ability. But, I saw they had. What's the reason of it? I had earlier seen the same behavior in my "own server".

A comment claims that they are Staff that's why abilities aren't showing. But, abilities are showing in manassahkatz's profile. He is staff and, moderator in CD Meta. Seems like, who have staff and moderator ability altogether in Physics CD than, abilities aren't showing but, abilities of them shows in CD Meta. Now, I think that global-admin don't have abilities.

Edit: While this specific case isn't reproducible, there is a broader problem. This section is sometimes not showing up for people with moderator privileges, on some communities, and I don't yet know why.


I see Mithrandir24601's abilities:

You confirmed in a comment that you now see them too. I don't know why you didn't before, and whether it was at our end or yours, but it seems to be working as expected now.

Mithrandir24601 is a moderator as well as staff, but the profile is only showing the staff label. I think we should show both when someone has both roles; not all staff are moderators. Moderators automatically have all abilities, which you'll see if you click the "abilities" link at the bottom of the list, but the profile only shows the ones a user has explicitly.
