1. People who know the advanced features of a computer operating system.
2. What business people who don't actually know anything about computers call themselves when all they can do is make spreadsheets in Excel. :

1. I just installed a new GUI to Debian! Now to overlock my processor so I can get shit done!

2. The following is a real story from my old job:
Lady: *Calls Me(IT Guy)*
Me: Hello?
Lady: Yes, is this IT I'm speaking with?
Me: Yes.
Lady: I'm normally a "Power User" but lately, Windows has been SO slow! I would like it if you could help me.
Me: Ok, would you like me to come over to your office?
Lady: No, it's fine.
Me: Well, could you answer these questions?
Lady: Yes. Why is it so slow?
Me: Have you updated Windows?
Lady: No.
Me: Do you have Windows 7?
Lady: Why do you want me to downgrade? I already have Windows 95!
Me: Have you downloaded any viruses?
Lady: No, my doctor said I'm fine.
Me: Umm...Well, have you clicked on any suspicious E-Mails?
Lady: Yes! I'm still waiting for my new iPhone!
Me: *Facepalm*

Commonly found with four or more Discord badges, these users seem to think they are the ideal users of Discord, while treating others as inferiors. These users often have a concerning interest in anthropomorphic characters; where said characters manifest themselves in the day to day activity of a power user. Power users always have an active Nitro subscription, which is most likely set to auto-bill at monthly intervals. A power user's profile most likely contains an image or reference to a fictitious anthropomorphic character, while containing a biography which includes the power user's pronouns, neo-pronouns, their exaggerated moderation experience, and various useless tidbits that are heavily frowned upon by the general Discord userbase. While pretending to be oblivious, power users are generally aware of their "popularity" among the platform. The average power user will usually make the facetious claim that "badges are irrelevant and do not matter", while ironically displaying their numerous profile badges. It is advised to avoid interactions with a power user at all cost. If left with no choice, approach a power user with understanding, liberalism, and an intense knowledge of the Discord moderation program.
Jim: Dude! You got so many badges!! How did you get them all?
Moderator: Badges are irrelevant. Refrain from mentioning badges or you will be banned from the server.
Bob: That mod is such a discord power user tbh

One who uses Windows at least twice per day, including weekends and holidays. It will always mean a lot to them, especially on trips to family, friends, and coworkers.
The Windows power user is never far from his 2-in-1!

The empowerment of users in an online environment like www.urbandictionary.com. It is what appeals to a user when he/she acts as part of a community consensus and is given the right to approve, veto or comment on what constitutes that environment.
It would be most unwise to underestimate the addictive nature of user-power, not least of all for its revolutionary potential.
