ARMS Institute:Policies/User Groups
There are several different types of users on ARMS Institute, each with its own rights and responsibilities.
To apply for a promotion, use the Applications page.
See Special:ListGroupRights for full details about the rights assigned to each group.
Bureaucrats have the ability to change the rights of other users.
A user may only be promoted to the bureaucrats group by wide support (75% or more) of active bureaucrats and the majority of users who comment on the request. A user cannot be promoted to a bureaucrat without first serving as an administrator.
Administrators have the ability to block other users and unblock themselves, edit protected pages, delete and undelete pages, and globally search and replace.
A user may be promoted to the administrators group by wide support (75% or more) of active bureaucrats and administrators and the majority of users who comment on the request. Candidates should be high-volume contributors with a willingness to work cooperatively with other users. Previous experience as a wiki administrator is preferred.
Patrollers are trusted users who have demonstrated their ability to make high-quality edits and improve edits other users have made. Their edits are automatically marked as patrolled, and they can mark other edits as patrolled or roll them back.
A user may be promoted to the patrollers group with the endorsement of an admin or another patroller.
Autoconfirmed users are users who have held an account for a short period of time. There are certain limitations on autoconfirmed users, such as the inability to edit protected pages or delete pages.
Users are automatically promoted to the autoconfirmed group after holding an account for 30 minutes.
