Default Another term for Administrator
The term Administrator sounds pretty officious. I'm looking for a softer and friendlier sounding job title, but one that still indicates who's responsible for the forum. I thought of using Sysop but that would be meaningless to most people these days. Any suggestions?

You could be more specific if your administrators have different roles like founder, coder, skinner, etc. If your forum is about a topic, you can fit names or terms related to them. Even head moderator if a moderator ever moves up in responsibility.

Dictator, ban machine, will crusher, and vanquisher of all life seem fairly friendly and welcoming.

Dang, the extremely harsh ones are also the most appealing. I wonder if members would see this as humorous too.

While I was away I thought of some: Innkeeper, Emcee, Host, Big teddy bear who will bite your head off if you mess up.

Alternatively, you could describe admins based on what they really do:

slave, indentured servant, serf, troll whisperer, solution to all problems, cause of all problems, etc.

Yes, Admin does sound softer. I guess because it's a nickname. Like Prez.

I really like some of the suggestions here but not sure which one of these I am going to apply to myself yet.
