The user levels, and their capabilities need to be changed. 'Admins' should have only a bare minimum of permissions and should not be able to do things we don't want them to - mostly uncommon but important tasks - they can always ask someone else to do it.

Every account has one of the following user levels:

= User level				Display as (to normal users)	Prefix
External user (no account)		-				- ([unregisted] suffix)
Banned					Banned
Awaiting e-mail activation		Unconfirmed user
Awaiting admin activation		Unconfirmed user
Trial user				New user			[T]
Normal user				Registered user			[R] (optional)
New site operator			Site operator			%
Site operator				Site operator			%
Support team				Support team			@
User administration			User administration		@
Moderators				Administrator			@
Admin					Administrator			@
SuperAdmin				Administrator			@
  • 'User level' indicates the internal code as used by the team
  • 'Display as' indicates how the user level is indicated to non-admin users
  • 'Prefix' indicates the prefix in the user list in the receiver interface, the default suffix is [Location, Country]
