Point of order Roy Chubby-Round, Bletch implied nothing of the sort.
As I’ve said, we’re just looking at this at the moment and no decision has been made.
BUT, I would envisage that the owners would be Admin level 4 users and that the Soviet (Am I really typing this knowing that @bearsy and @tokyo-saint are on the Soviet) would be ‘Normal’ users at level 4.
This would mean that for all structural and behind the scenes running of the site only the owners would be able to make changes but for general admin duties The Soviet would be able to do that - as well as other posters who had reached level 3 or above.
It actually begs the question of whether, in a Discourse world, you would hold elections to the Soviet or whether you would instead let the community create Soviets by just promoting them to level 4.
