Best advice don't make other admins.
Use a unqiue password four forum admin only.

Well here I go- (If someone gets on to your site and messes it up due to you giving them admin status, or them knowing your password, it is not getting hacked, it is having an unsecured website.)

1) It will not harm your computer if you don't click on posted links, etc. that will lead you away from the site.
2) You can create as many forums as you want.
3) You can remove their admin status. (If that is not the problem, there may be a feature with this service called FixCP, but i'm not sure... wait for CAF to respond to that part.)

Our servers are secure and won't be hacked. However I see websites taken over every day due to poor security.
