Description (last modified by Will Kahn-Greene)

We need to create a new group in the wiki for people with enhanced
editing powers. Elrond pointed out we already had a plan for this
and to call it "Friends of the Elvenlord". Then he mentioned maybe
"Friends of the Goblin" is better.

Anyhow, MediaWiki rights are listed here:

`\_rights <>`_

It should have at least suppressredirect.

-  What about "upload" and one of the "reupload\*" permissions?
   (Maybe someone wants to upload a small layout idea?)
-  Quick googling turned up this page, might be helpful:
   ` <>`_
   and maybe this also:
   ` <>`_

Adding new groups is done in config (pretty sure I've done it

So, the outstanding questions here are these:

1. what permissions should FoG have?
2. when can someone go fiddle with the config file to build it?

`\_rights <>`_

Is it sufficient to make FoG just like emailconfirmed but with
uploadaccess permissions? i.e. do we want to give upload access to
all FoG folks? How does someone become an FoG?

I created the "goblin army" group earlier this week. This group covers upload, reupload, all the create/editing stuff, and some other things.

Also, I nixed permissions for users. So now you need to be added to the goblin army in order to edit the wiki.
