amazing. just looked at the matrix-synapse docs to make my own user admin and I can't find how to do it to save my life. I have root on the server and write access to the database, and YET I can't fucking make myself admin. incredibly good system

apparently I am an admin on the SERVER but not on the ROOM i'm looking at so even tho I have root access, db admin, and server admin I cannot change this room's icon

@wxcafe it's in the cli tool somewhere iirc, can't remember what's it's called off the top of my head though

@wxcafe Ah ok nevermind, I see commands for registering new users but not for editing room permissions unfortunately

@wxcafe I don't think editing the DB will work because it won't trigger the right side effects

what you could try is making a new admin user through the cli, adding that user to the room, and then see if they can change permissions in the room

@wxcafe ah, you are already server admin nevermind

Hmm, I think that becoming admin in a ROOM is not actually possible, because Matrix rooms are like basically little blockchains. This is also why you can never take away admin status once it's been given.

I mean to be fair, CryptPad pads are also little blockchains, which proves that not all blockchains have to soak up 100% of all CPU power ever.
