User rights resources

There are seven kinds of users with access to additional tools on Nukapedia - interwiki users, chat moderators, patrollers, discussion/thread moderators, content moderators, administrators/system operators (sysop) and bureaucrats.

Descriptions

  • Patrollers can utilize rollback functionality and mark edits as patrolled.
  • Interwiki users mainly or only add interwiki links. Their edits are automatically patrolled.
  • Chat moderators have the ability to ban users from Discord.
  • Discussion/thread moderators have the ability to remove posts on the discussions board.
  • Content moderators have access to the same tools as a patroller, and in addition can protect/delete articles and delete/rename files.
  • Administrators/system operators have access to the same tools as moderators, and in addition can block users from the wiki.
  • Bureaucrats have access to the same tools as an administrator/system operator, and in addition can grant and revoke user rights roles.

Application process

Users meeting requirements and seeking additional user rights may write an application, posted to the "Wiki proposals and applications" section of the forums. The title should follow the format "[Specific Rights] Request – [Username]." For example, "Content Moderator Request - Editor01." The content within the forum itself is at the discretion of the applicant but generally can describe strengths and outline past contributions. For those user rights positions requiring an endorsement, the applicant can post their forum with a dedicated endorsement section. The endorsing staff member will follow behind, adding their statement and signature to the forum. Applications with unsigned endorsements cannot be passed. In addition, patroller rights do not require a community discussion or vote. Users meeting requirements may request these rights via a bureaucrat's talk page. Administrators and bureaucrats may also appoint patrollers. In cases of an administrator appointing a patroller, they must secure the approval of an additional administrator or bureaucrat.

User rights forums should include a poll that runs for seven (7) days, or longer if needed. All users who take part in the vote are encouraged to post a rationale alongside votes. Administrators reserve the right to require voter rationales for certain polls if they feel it is a necessity. Once the poll timeframe expires, a bureaucrat will add administrative protection to the forum, prohibiting further voting, and confirm the outcome via the "results" section. If the application is successful, bureaucrats will carry out the necessary steps to grant rights and make all applicable updates on both Discord and Nukapedia. Regardless of the outcome, bureaucrats are expected to communicate results with the applicant in a timely manner.

The following is a generic template for applications. Seeking examples of past forums may also prove helpful.
