Users and rights

List of users and rights

The Special:ListGroupRights special page lists the user groups that exist on a wiki, and lists the rights that are assigned to those groups. Bureaucrats can give additional rights to trusted users.

Making trusted person Administrator or Bureaucrat

Go to page Special:UserRights. Write a trusted user's username and give additional user rights. You can find all registered users and their user rights listed here: Special:ListUsers

You need to have Bureaucrat rights to give additional rights to other wiki users.
