The forum owner user account

The forum owner user account is automatically created when you create your forum with Website Toolbox. It will say Forum Owner next to it when it is assigned as an administrator in the Users -> Administrators section. It is supposed to be the account that the forum owner uses to browse and post on the forum. If the forum owner user account is not assigned as an administrator, it will not have any special privileges.

The main difference between an administrator and a forum owner is that administrators cannot delete, edit, or ban the forum owner. The forum owner can delete, edit, or ban anyone.

You can change the username of the forum owner or contact us if you'd like to change which user or users are assigned as the forum owner.
