Permisssions on creating a new project

When I create a new project on a Gitlab instance, I am set as the Master of the project rather than the Owner, so it is an Owner-less project. Is there any way to change this settings to set default permissions to owner rather than master when I create a new project?

@gogators1613 See this response for the answer. In short, you will always have a maximum permission level of Owner for projects that exist under your personal namespace. It’s intentional and you aren’t missing out on any privileges this way.
