This page is a guide to the different user groups on Soyjak Wiki.

Administrator[edit source]

Administrators are pretty self explanatory: They administrate the site.

You can think of an Administrator as having similar rights to what a mod would on or 4chan.

These additional functions include:

  • Deleting and undeleting pages, page histories, and uploaded files.
  • Locking (protecting) a page so it cannot be edited or renamed by users without admin rights or autoconfirmed status.
  • Blocking IP addresses or user names from editing; and very quick "rollback" of undesirable edits.

Bureaucrat[edit source]

A bureaucrat is similar to an Administrator, but has the ability to do a few more things.

You can think of a Bureaucrat as having similar rights to what an admin would have on or 4chan.

A bureaucrat can do anything that an admin can, but they can also:

  • Give or revoke admin, bureaucrat, rollback, or content moderator rights to any user.
  • Edit the Interwiki Tables

Helper[edit source]

Helpers are trusted users that are halfway between admins and normal users.

You can think of a helper as having similar rights to what a Janitor would have on or 4chan.

Helpers have the ability to do the following:

  • Edit Admin-protected pages
  • 'nish users
  • Delete pages (but not to restore them)
  • Protect and unprotect pages
  • Rollback edits

Rollback[edit source]

Rollback is something that is given to users that are known not to be vandals. Rollbackers have the ability to undo edits in a single click.

AllPageEdit[edit source]

AllPageEdit is another usergroup that can be given to users that are heavily trusted and are known not to be vandals. Users with this group can edit Admin-protected pages.

Interface Administrator[edit source]

Interface administrators are separate from normal administrators. Users with this group are able to edit any pages under the "MediaWiki" namespace, such as the CSS or Sitenotice.

Check User[edit source]

The check user group is an add-on function.

The additional function includes:

  • Being able to see IP addresses of user accounts. IP addresses are to be used pursuant to the Privacy Policy.

Suppressor[edit source]

Suppressors have the ability to hide individual edits. It is a tool given upon request to wiki administrators.

Autoconfirmed[edit source]

Autoconfirmed users are similar to normal users, however, they have a few more abilities, including

  • Exemption from automated anti-spam filters, such as blanking protection.
  • Ability to edit pages that are locked to autoconfirmed users only.

Users become automatically autoconfirmed if their account:

  • Is more than 3 days old
  • Made 4 or more edits

Mod[edit source]

Mod was a former user group made by Soot. Only Syjck and -soyboywojak- ever became mod, and both users had their mod status removed by Soot.

These are the exact flags Soot set for wiki mods:
