superuser

From IndieWeb
Jump to: navigation, search


superuser is a privileged user on a site (typically a silo, like Foursquare) that has some admin abilities, sometimes different based on what "level" of superuser the user has been granted or has achieved.

Why

Consider implementing superusers on your site so you can delegate some amount of admin or moderation to others.

How

TBD. See existing examples below and add some brainstorming.
