Admin versus moderator

(Thomas J Ralph) #1

What’s the difference between the admin and mod rights? Do admins have more power?

(Matt Palmer) #2

Moderators control the content (and the users). Admins control the system (configuration, etc).

One more quick question can Mods grant themselves admin?

(Jeff Atwood) #4

No, mods cannot grant themselves admin.

Thanks Jeff for all your help!
