Privileged users are administrators/global moderators & moderators.
I got a test NodeBB setup and I'm going to try the gallery plugin next. Except, I think I just determined that the lightbox gallery plugin is not a full gallery, with management to go along with it. Is that correct?
I was previously running on SMF with the Menalto Gallery. This gave me folders, user galleries, and admin functions for the gallery side. Anything like that for NodeBB?
I don't think we have anything quite so fully featured at the moment, although the NodeBB team could always build it out for you
