    For the members of this community who own forums, what usergroup title/rank do you prefer? Do you prefer owner, administrator, manager, director, or something else?

    Personally, I prefer the rank I have on here, which is Lead Administrator.

    What about you?

    This isn't a business. Thus being said, titles like "Owner, CEO, or manager" shouldn't be used. I like Lead Administrator as well, it's literally the job you're doing.

    I think most people go with Owner or simply Administrator. Sometimes, they might combine the two. At least, that's what I've seen on different communities. I think whatever works for you, is fine.

    A lot of times I just user Administrator, although if you have a team of a few admins, sometimes that can get confusing. In those cases think just using "owner" or "Lead Admin" or something like are the best choices.

    This pretty much covers how I feel about this. At some point, I'd like to be called the "All Powerful Leader" though. Or maybe "The King."

    This topic is funny to look back to. It's been a year, and now my position title is "Executive Director," and @Drew's title is "Community Manager." :tearsofjoy:

    Yea haha. Funny how even in just a year statements like this seems irrelevant.

    I like both both terms, "Executive Director" and "Lead Administrator" when it comes to the forum owner title.

    Does "Executive Dictator" sound good? We should make that change today! It sounds very professional.

    I like it and I am all for it. Does "Assistant Dictator" sound good for Drew? How about ""Head Minion" for me and "Minion" for the rest of the team?
