create user group in wiki for editors
|Reported by:||Will Kahn-Greene||Owned by:|
Description (last modified by )
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: `http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:User\_rights <http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:User_rights>`_ It should have at least suppressredirect.

Adding new groups is done in config (pretty sure I've done it before). 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? `http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:User\_rights <http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:User_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.
