-===== Guest =====+===== 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 ====

-==== Guest Account Creation ====+=== Guest Account Creation ===
  
-By default, if no ''Guest'' account exists, the sysop (user with [[level]] 99) will be asked during logon to the [[server:Terminal]] server whether they wish to create the ''Guest'' account at that time. If the sysop answers ''Yes'', the [[:module:makeguest]] [[:custom:JavaScript]] module will be executed to create the ''Guest'' account with the recommended access controls:+When a sysop with [[access:level|Security Level]] 99 logs into the [[server:Terminal]] serverthey 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''   * [[Restrictions]]: ''G, K, P, M, W, R, C''
   * [[Exemptions]]: ''G, L, P, T''   * [[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.
