User management
Open, LowPublic



Allow instance admins to get more insight into their users and perform certain tasks.


Performing common tasks around users should be easy to do via the web-based admin dashboard. This is important for saving time, and for admins that don't host their own instance, e.g. those who use


Admins of multi-user instances


NOTE: just ideas for now

Support these actions:

  • View list of local users
  • View information about a user, looked up via username
    • Username
    • Sign up date
    • Number of posts
    • Number of blogs
  • Ability to suspend accounts
    • Suspend account entirely
    • Disable "Public" blog setting for the user


Can be simple for now, even plain text-based. Just needs to be functional.
