Good question. I also encountered the same needs. You can do that by hacking the core. However, that is not realistic. There will be a way to limit the admin (not SuperAdmin) authority.

@sama55, I am a newbie. But I feel it is unethical to promote a competitor platform here.
Platform you have suggested might be good, but I am with q2a for being it Open source.

The platform you suggested says "Open source is very unstable mechanism", which makes me wonder about its moral grounds.

Anyway, thanks for your time answering my quetion

Other users already know, but you will soon understand the situation here.

Ok, but you mentioned it on a general basis which is quite eye browse raising. Looks like you're putting them all in the same basket. Would you maintain that open source Linux uses an unstable mechanism for instance? If you're not satisfied with it then you're free to contribute to the code to make it better here. Dragging us into a closed system and splitting things up this way is not necessarily the best way to go I'm afraid.

I have not denied all of the open source projects. I have participated in many open source projects so far. Many OSS are born every year. However, there are very few projects that survive (Successful projects are few percent). All of the successful projects are managed on the appropriate organization. And, it is driven by strong leadership. For example, Linux, Ubuntu, WordPress, Drupal, etc. The members here do not speak out of fear of repulsion, but everyone wants the project to be appropriately managed by a person with strong leadership. Typically, developers are not interested in projects that will not evolve.

Ya, many OSS don't survive and closed sourced software are no better. You're ignoring Joomla which is the second most popular open source CMS and has NO strong leadership as opposed to what you mentioned. If you go to their forums and ask them who's in charge there no one will be able to answer. And if you insist on it you'll probably be considered as a troll.

You're also ignoring the possibility of forking the project if you want to take the lead with the possibility of contributing back to the original repository later. You really don't have to close it up for that and by doing so you're only helping a few elites who can afford to pay, not the community as a whole. The bigger price however is that they'll end up being locked into a much smaller ecosystem.
