Hi Jeremy, there is admin interface at url /admin where you can access, modify user profile data, and inactivate accounts. That interface is however may be a bit too powerful and anyone using it should be careful. Extended settings interface (with most things that are in the settings_local.py are coming soon after I merge in the experimental branch).

I have not tested it myself, but I suspect that if you delete an account through admin interface you will also automatically delete all user's contributions - try it out and see what happens. There is definitely room for better user moderation tools.

If you - and anyone else:)! - might be willing to sponsor this project in some form I will indeed try to find a developer to help out. Thanks for mentioning that.

Btw, if you are planning to run a forum in French, somebody first needs to make a translation. It will take about a week if you work without a hurry and two days if you only take breaks for food :). I've made a translation from Chinese in three days last year.

edit: to make the first user into admin you'll need to run a command

python manage.py add_admin <user_id>

where <user_id> is the numeric id of that user. If command is not available you will need to upgrade the code or copy files forum/management/commands/add_admin.py and forum/management/commands/remove_admin.py. I am working on an easier upgrade method now.
