Restful Users

I just finished my authentication for my user model and session
controller and a question popped into my head. I do want to stay restful
and I don’t know where to put my user control panel. I mean its not
really a show user thing. I could have a hole new controller and views
for the user control panel that just use data from other models that is
the best idea I had but I figured I would ask the gurus first.

Isn’t that just the GET /users path?

Sorry its hard to phrase this question

My user controller is a restful resource so get user shows the profile
page that all users can access. I was wondering where to code the
control panel users see when the log in.

The control panel or a users home screen might be a better phrase after
thinking about it pulls data from a lot of models so I guess just a
separate controller would work best thank you.

Which model(s) does the user’s control panel pull information from?
Keep in
mind, you can create a controller which does not tie directly to an
underlying
model or database table, so why not create a ControlPanel controller
with
view, edit, and update methods?
