Spinitron has a system of user permissions. Each user account is assigned one of five levels of permissions: New user, User, Editor, Administrator, and Disabled account that affects which features are available to the user, as summarized in the table below.
|Feature||New user||Regular user||Editor user||Administrator||Disabled
|Content visible to public||No||Yes|
|Max playlists||3||No limit|
& user profiles
|User's own||Any user's||No
|Create, edit &
|User's own||Any user's|
|Edit music database||No||Yes|
|Import||Own playlists||Any user's playlists
& bulk data
|Export, email||Any playlists|
A newly created user account is automatically given "New user" permissions. This can be changed by an Administrator to one of the other permissions levels but never back to New user.
User accounts cannot be deleted because that would affect the archiving of playlists. But when an account is no longer needed it may be disabled. The user's content is still available but he or she can no longer log on.
