Website development question

I am building this member website where you go on and you can register like a social network but not really.. And i was wondering do i need to make a staff panel for it or is there a different way to deal with the users?

Depends on the purpose of the site and how you/your client want to manage it. Would you need to create different levels of permissions for staff to manage certain areas of the website?

Yes i could maybe do it like this 0 for have to activate email 1 member 2 premium member 3-5 staff

You'll probably want an Admin panel for you and your staff that is only visible when the user has a specific permission (staff, admin, manage, etc).

Even if you don't want to build an Admin panel you'll probably still want a way to check if the user has Admin permissions.

Yes maybe what i said above have a number set list.
