Level 1 - can edit venue info (address, cross street, phone, Twitter names, map pin location), mark venues as closed, and flag duplicate venues. Level 2 - can additionally merge duplicate venue listings, adjust the latitude and longitude of a venue, remove tags, add a web address, and add categories.
