To Super Admin - To Admin - To Member - That is the question!

How often have you asked teams to be an Admin - How many times were you asked to be an Admin of one of the teams you are a Super Admin for?  Does anyone really know the difference between Super Admin VS Admin VS Member. I will aim to give some clarity on this from my perspective.

 

What powers do the different levels have:

 

According to the support topic "What are group admins able to do" it gives the following answer:

"Club admins have special privileges that regular members of the club do not have, including:

  • Editing club settings and info
  • Adding a theme to a club(background image and colors)
  • Creating, accepting, viewing team Vote Chess and Matches
  • Sending club invitations
  • Managing the access levels of other club members (Super Admins only)
  • Deleting forum and new comments
  • Sending messages to all members of the club "

Here is my take on it from the bottom up :

Member:

  • Create New Forum Topics
  • Comment on Forums, News, Notes, etc
  • Participate in matches, vote chess, tournaments, etc
  • View stats 
  • Basically participate in all group activities

Admin:

  • All privileges that the normal member has
  • Editing club settings and info
  • Adding a theme to a club(background image and colors)
  • Creating, accepting, viewing team Vote Chess and Matches
  • Sending club invitations
  • Deleting forum and new comments
  • Sending messages to all members of the club 

Super Admins: 

  • All privileges that Admins have
  • Managing the access levels of other club members
  • Appointing Admins
  • Disable Club

CONCLUSION:

  • First see what you are able to do for the group as a normal member
  • When you get stuck ask the Super Admin for Admin rights
  • Now see what you can to for the group as an Admin
  • When you get stuck as an Admin ask the Super Admin to appoint you as a Super Admin
