»Chapter 15. Relationships between users

The reluser Table

The reluser table is used to track special relationships between accounts, such as community maintainers/moderators and their communities, which communities a user is allowed to post to, and which users are banned from commenting in specific journals. These relationships are defined as a single character in the database:

targetid can administrate userid as a community maintainer
targetid is banned in userid, either in comments, or from posting, if userid is a shared or community account
targetid can post to userid
targetid can moderate the community userid
targetid is preapproved to post in userid without moderation
