This wiki has special user groups which will be more familiar than the default user groups because they are similar to the different user groups in use on most forums.
N.B. Patrolling - when an edit is made, it will be marked as 'unpatrolled' (red exclamation mark in recent changes) and until someone who has the ability to 'patrol' can mark it as legitimate.

|Editor||Can protect and move pages, can re-upload images (overwrite existing ones) and is allowed to patrol. Editors can also suppress redirects when moving pages.

|Developer||An auxiliary role, which should granted in tandem with another role (such as moderator/admin). It allows users with this role to lock the wiki's database, either for maintenance, or to combat widespread vandalism.||Admins||Active|
|Arbitrator||An auxiliary role, which should granted in tandem with another role (such as moderator/admin). It allows users with this role to access information such as a User's IP address, and to remove certain page revisions (such as those containing personal information) from the page history. This role is not granted without plenty of thought about the candidates and implies a high level of trust in those who are granted it.||Admins||Active|
