An admin has more authority than a moderator as they can:

  • Set the custom logo and description of the community
  • Review users’ requests to be a moderator
  • Promote a moderator to be an admin
  • Remove users as moderator if they are out of line with the community
  • Remove posts and comments if they are objectionable or off-topic
  • Ban spammers or abusive users on the community page

 

Whereas a moderator can only:

  • Remove posts and comments if they are objectionable or off-topic
  • Ban spammers or abusive users on the community page
