Stargate Wiki:User types

From Semantic Stargate Wiki

Semantic Stargate Wiki would not be a concise, extensive encyclopedia were it not for the many people who actively read, make changes and additions, or handle the cleanup and policy functions that expand and maintain the wiki.

There are essentially five types of visitors to Semantic Stargate Wiki:

  • "Public": Semantic Stargate Wiki is an publicly-available MediaWiki-based encyclopedia that anyone can read without contributing or editing. They come to check a fact, episode event, or character periodically, eventually can make changes and create pages. Also known as IP addresses. Thoses users cannot modify the articles.
  • Declared users: These users can edit almost any article and some internal wiki policy and project pages, they can move and rename pages but cannot delete them.
  • Administrators or Admins: admins are trusted users who have also demonstrated knowledge (and adherence to) Semantic Stargate Wiki policy. Admins receive a handful of tools to expedite quick changes to articles and user accounts to maintain wiki performance, article integrity and accuracy. Admins don't get any special "say" over other users and have only one vote in matters of wiki policy and consensus. Admins have the power, with sufficient cause, to block users who violate Semantic Stargate Wiki policies, guidelines, consensus and practices.
  • Bureaucrats or "b-crats": these are trusted users (or admins) who have additional tools to change user privileges on Semantic Stargate Wiki. After proper authority given from user consensus and policy, b-crats can create other admins, b-crats and rollbacks. Bureaucrats also help in disputes.
