Guild admins now have the ability to specify custom administrative rights to be assigned whenever someone's access level is changed either via the Control Panel, directly clicking the Member Admin link on any guild page, or via the App Admin widget that loads for those with that right assigned to them.

The ability to do this is useful in cases where you want to assign rights to groups of people based upon their access, for example, you could say that you want all people with Council-level access to be able to fully administer images and polls, and officers to have admin rights over polls, images and events.

After you've changed the default rights that are assigned to a given access level, whenever a person is assigned that level, they will automatically be granted those rights. Also, you will be asked whether you want to apply your settings to everyone already in the guild.

Note that un-checking admin rights when editing a member is still possible -- just keep in mind how granular you're getting if you decide to change rights for the access level later on and decide to overwrite individual rights you've already selected.

You can get started with the new feature by opening the Control Panel, expanding Member Management (on the left), and clicking Default Rights.  The UI is all wizard-y, and does a lot of explaining as you go along.
