Q: What do admin privileges allow a user to do, and what happens when they're revoked?
A: Simply put, site admins typically have full control over everything on the site. Features vary based on the modules and specific configuration for each site, but if a feature is implemented, site admins can access it. Among other things, admins have access to security logs, IP address information, and all account data, and can edit account information of other users as well as granting/revoking security privileges. Individual modules can be configured to only allow admins to interact with them if that administrator also has staff privileges, but this is not typically the case. Administrative privileges can be revoked by another admin, but doing so will generate an email to the admin whose privileges are being revoked to notify them, as well as providing the identity of the user who revoked their privileges.
