Administrators are users of Sonic Retro who, as the title implies, have administrative control over the forums and the wiki. The group is most similar to, and ranked above, Moderators. Administrators have all of the same powers plus the additional abilities to change/create member groups, to approve pending members, and to ban unruly members. They also have access to the Admin control panel and can edit the Main Page as needed.
