Risks in naming a 2nd Administrator?

Post by SurfsUp on January 9th 2012, 9:50 am

I want to give a friend powers to create Categories and Forums etc, so I guess I have to give him Administrator status. Is there a risk he could somehow take over the forum by changing my email address, my password..stuff like that?

Or in any other way give himself controls that I cannot undo?

If you are the founder of your forum it is near impossible for him to take over or kick you out in any way.

He can mess around with your forum if he wishes to. So always give the admin rights to someone whom you trust completely & are willing to take the risk with Wink

Hi,

If you have a second Administrator he can do EVERYTHING YOU can do BUT:
  • Modify YOUR profile.
  • Delete the forum.
  • Spend or see how many credit the forum has.
  • Modify Templates.
  • Add or remove 'footer links'
  • Access the Utilities (Exception, if YOU give him the password)
