 There is usually one sysop per BBS, though Synchronet can be configured for multiple sysops (sometimes called co-sysops). In Synchronet, any user with a [[access:level|security level]] at or above 90 is considered a sysop. There is usually one sysop per BBS, though Synchronet can be configured for multiple sysops (sometimes called co-sysops).

 ===== Sysop Commands ===== ===== Sysop Commands =====
-A menu of the available commands can be viewed with the '!' command from the main or transfer sections with the Synchronet Classic command shell. Additional sysop commands are available in many other sections of the BBS and are displayed after the normal menu with the '?' command. All sysop commands from the main or transfer sections of the Synchronet Classic command shell begin with a semicolon (';') character, end with CR (ENTER), and some have optional parameters (shown in square brackets). Users with certain exemptions can use some of these commands and have access to the menus via the '!' command using the Synchronet Classic command shell.  +A menu of the available commands can be viewed with the '!' command from the main or transfer sections with the Synchronet Classic command shell.
