I would prefer to select “Administrator”.

Correctly and officially it is “Administrator” because “Admin” is a shortened version of administrator.

Having inclusion in mind, ‘administration’ is another option.

Makes it easier in other languages to establish a neutral expression.

This seems to be a good example of the discussion we had on gender neutral language and ways how to achieve it. What do you think, @jan ?

Ok, we started to use “Administration” in the first cases. “Admin” should not be used anymore in source code.
