MODERATOR ROLE NOTE: If you assign a role of "Moderator" to users, you'll see an additional "Moderation" tab pop up on the user's profile where you can manage what they get assigned to, notified about, etc. See our article "What are the moderator settings to determine what a moderator gets assigned to and notified about?" for more details.
