/administrators [POST]


Add a member to the list of accounts with administrator privileges on the server.

If no member exists for the email address or username specified, an account is created.

When existing members are made administrators, their password is automatically reset. The system does not prevent a member from entering their previous password again, but it does not accept that password unless it is strong enough.
