Should we rename group admins?
I'm soo tired of seeing the term admin around loomio.
It's used in 2 ways: managing the loomio system (accepting new group requests etc), as well as having special privileges in groups.
So I want to suggest we use another term for the latter purpose of facilitating discussions and managing groups - Keeping admin for the system sense.
I see most other communities use the term Mod, short for moderator. So I will suggest we use that. I would like to suggest the term facilitator too..
ANYTHING but admin. please. Your thoughts?

Admin, facilitator, moderator... all these words have connotations that don't quite fit the role. Talking about a 'coordinator' feels more neutral and accurate to me.

No really happy about a 2 word label - but the meaning is captured well. I wonder if we're worrying too much about the meaning when we just want a simple term people already understand. The double use of admin is not user visible so not a big prob
