Delete Administrator

Hi, I see that Discourse itself in the user profile page warns me that it is not possible to delete an administrator account, but I am wondering how do do it anyway?

I created what was intended to be a temporary account with administrator privileges for the benefit of a developer, and no longer need it.

What options do I have?

How otherwise should I have granted temporary administrator access?

First, you can just revoke their admin privs in their profile settings:

After that you can change the trust level or suspend the user, etc.


Consider to increase delete all posts max as well. The value must cover all posts of this user.


Thanks guys
I did not realize you could revoke admin and moderator status only once trust level reduced.
