I wonder if we should get rid of the term "webmaster"

There are (only) 2 occurrences:

1) Couldn&#8217;t register you&hellip; please contact the <a href="mailto:%s">webmaster</a> !

2) Thanks for using the site, Webmaster

I propose to exchange these for "Site administrator", which is far more common around WP.
Maybe we could use "Site administration" or so..

In 48049:

Text Changes: Replace "Webmaster" in output messages with more appropriate terms:

  • "All at ###SITENAME###" in wp-admin/ms-delete-site.php, for consistency with other Multisite emails.
  • "Site admin" in register_new_user(), for clarity.

Props Presskopp, marybaum.
