    Ok, I'm working on a project where there will be 3 or 4 basic levels of users: reader level, selective area moderators / editors, project wide moderators, and of course, Greyskull level.

    What's the best way to set up this arrangement and to integrate it with a database of entries? The selective area moderators will need their permissions based on a single value that is part of each possible database entry.

    For the table containing users, add a level colomn, preferably interger. Then make a separate table full of permissions for each level of user. This way you can have unlimited(for all intesive purposes) levels of users, each with separate, unique privelegves.

    If I read you correctly, I think you want to be able to grant individuals access to edit individual areas?

    In which case, you need to set up an area/content/user relationship...

    -an "area" table containing unique references for each of the areas of the site
    -each content page (or section) should be assigned to an area
    - a "users" table containg your users
    - a "user_areas" table which is an intersection entity between users and areas. hence, an individual user can edit multiple areas, and an area can have multiple editors.
