If you allow everyone to create new rooms then you will have a network with a large number of rooms on various topics. The advantage of this is that the users will normally enjoy it more and you do not need to think up every room they might want nor run each one yourself. The disadvantage is that they may create some rooms that you do not approve of without you noticing. All of the other levels allow you to choose who is responsible enough to create new rooms if you have decided to have a more restrictive network.
