This has always annoyed me.

Why are features enabled per package and not per user?

This just seems stupid to me.

If I want most users to not have the new Terminal interface, but if I want one or two users to have access to it, I have to create a new feature set, then create a package with the same values that they currently have but with this newly created feature set, and then upgrade/downgrade the user to that new package.

Why?

Why can't I just give that user access to the Terminal feature?

Hello @sparek-3,

Associating feature lists to packages instead of individual accounts is helpful for web hosting companies that want to offer the same set of features to all accounts associated with a specific package. This is especially useful for web hosting companies that host a large number of accounts where it's not practical to manage separate feature lists for each user. That said, I do understand that every situation is different and there is benefit to an alternative way of assigning feature lists to accounts. I encourage anyone else seeking similar functionality to vote and add feedback to the existing feature request (opened by @sparek-3) at:

Enable Feature via username instead of via package

Thank you.

And if anybody comes across this thread and that feature request, realize that that feature request entry is over 3 years old.

So... don't hold your breath.
