Wondering what’s the difference between an admin and a moderator?
In this knowledge base article, we’ll discuss the differences.
It’s our opinion that unless it’s someone you completely trust, then you shouldn’t make someone an administrator.
When you make someone an admin of a group you essentially make them a part-owner of that group.
Therefore it’s often better to assign moderators and not more admins.
For most maintenance activities that you’d want someone doing the moderator role has more than enough privileges for this…
