Continuing the discussion from Discontinue Changelog, but not really:
There is an admin doc on GitHub that kinda explains the other two permissions, which overlap with the trust levels; they aren’t the same things, exactly.
Staff members are official representatives of this community. There are two kinds of Staff:
- Admins , who can do anything and configure anything on this site.
- Moderators , who can edit all posts and users, but cannot add categories or change any site settings.
Admin is godmode, as the database can be downloaded. Now, that shouldn’t be an issue, in theory. I discourage folks from using private messages, but I am under no delusion that works. Currently I’m secure with the knowledge that I personally do not read the DB.
And while I have utmost confidence in each of your competence to be an admin, I want to note there is always that little infosec voice in my head that says: do not have any more gods than needed
That said, I’d very much like to scrub my ego a little more raw, double-check backups are working, and share whatever level of access seems appropriate.
Let’s discuss! What should we do?!
