 The sysop can specify combinations of access controls (e.g. security level, flags) and user values (e.g. gender, age, etc.) in [[util:SCFG]] (mostly under the options named "Access Requirements") to control access to specific areas or functions of the BBS and restrict to specific groups of users. The sysop can specify combinations of access controls (e.g. security level, flags) and user values (e.g. gender, age, etc.) in [[util:SCFG]] (mostly under the options named "Access Requirements") to control access to specific areas or functions of the BBS and restrict to specific groups of users.

 + 
 +===== Creating and Editing User Accounts ===== 
 + 
 +There are multiple methods available for creating and editing user accounts: 
 +  * By calling or connecting to the BBS and selecting "New" at the Login prompt 
 +  * [[module:makeuser]] module (user creation only) 
 +  * [[module:makeguest]] module (Guest account creation only) 
 +  * [[util:uedit]] TUI user editor 
 +  * [[util:useredit]] GUI user editor 
 +    * User->Editor menu option from the [[monitor:sbbsctrl|Synchronet Control panel for Windows]] 
 +  * [[util:gtkuseredit]] GUI user editor (*nix) 
 +  * "UEDIT" sysop command, available while logged-in to the [[server:Terminal]] server as an operator of the system (sysop) 
 +      * e.g. '';uedit'' command from the main menu of the default command shell 
 + 
 +==== Sysop ==== 
 + 
 +The first user account created when connected to the [[server:Terminal]] server will automatically be given Sysop-level access (i.e., Security level 90, all flags and all exemptions). 
 + 
 +For this reason, the System Password is prompted for (with the SY: prompt) 
 +during the first new user creation process. 
 + 
 +The sysop account is traditionally the first user record in the database 
 +(i.e., user #1). This user account should not have the alias of "Sysop" - use your 
 +real name or a handle instead. Synchronet automatically treats the alias of 
 +Sysop specially and forwards any mail received for "Sysop" to user #1. 
 + 
 +==== Guest ==== 
 + 
 +Some sysops will want to have a ''Guest'' user account on their BBS. Guest accounts can be used to allow: 
 + 
 +  * Inspection of basic BBS content without creating a user account 
 +  * Anonymous FTP access 
 + 
 +=== Guest Account Creation === 
 + 
 +When a sysop with [[access:level|Security Level]] 99 logs into the [[server:Terminal]] server, they will be asked to create a Guest account if the following conditions are met: 
 + 
 +  * Sysop's [[access:level|Security Level]] is 99 
 +  * ''Guest'' user does not already exist 
 +  * Sysop has not already been asked and said ''No'' and to not be asked again 
 + 
 +If the sysop answers ''Yes'', the [[:module:makeguest]] [[:custom:JavaScript]] module will be executed to create the ''Guest'' account with the recommended access controls: 
 + 
 +  * [[Restrictions]]: ''G, K, P, M, W, R, C'' 
 +  * [[Exemptions]]: ''G, L, P, T'' 
 + 
 +If you answered ''No'' to both the "create Guest?" and "Ask again later?" prompts, you will need to run the makeguest.js module manually if you wish to create a ''Guest'' account.
