Buddypress needs "Site-Wide Editor" User Role
Buddypress Core needs a new position between “Site-wide Admin” and “regular users”. This idea was partially addressed here with regards to forums, but not for entire BP installs.
Let’s say we have a site with 20,000 active users. To moderate that many users we would need at least 100 or so moderators minimum to look after the site. Unfortunately, the only option we have to promote a trustworthy user to is a “Site-wide Admin”. Otherwise they can’t edit/moderate activity comments, blog posts, or blog comments.
It’s obviously a bad idea to give 100+ users the ability to delete your entire site or change options that you don’t want changed in the back-end. The potential for an accident is too great.
But currently there’s no solution to our predicament. Either we only have a few “Site-Wide Admins” who are the only ones who can moderated posts, comments, and activity streams… or we can ask others to help us but in the process we’re forced to give them an unnecessary amount of power (increasing the chance of accidental harm).
So I rest my case. I believe this is an issue that BP needs to address. BP needs to have a new “Site-wide Editor” user role that’s just below a “Site-Wide Editor”. Has anyone else considered this?
