WPMU New Blog Default User Role

When I using WP Multisite as Network Admin and creating a new blog, The new user to the blog will get role: Administator for the new blog.

I want to add in wp-admin/network/settings.php a setting for "New Blog Default User Role". Where the Network Admin can set the default role for users to new blogs.

So you can set that if you creating a new blog and enter one e-mail address the user will get the role you have in your settings, so you can set users to new blogs to be example subscribers instead of Administrators like today.

Exactly as the plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/new-blog-default-user-role/ but this one is not so good.

The issue that complicates this is that the user who corresponds to the site admin_email address needs to be able to manage the site. That email address is used throughout core to send notifications to. If the email address corresponds to someone who only has a subscriber role then they cannot address any issues sent via notification.

One potential solution would be to also have a field for the user who would be made the admin of the site (ex. possibly one of the super admins).

No activity, seems like plugin territory. Closing as maybe later.
