This page contains useful information about the Wikibooks project.|
While this is not a listing of rules or policies, it contains information about an important Wikibooks process, custom etc. This page should be helpful to our users; please let us know if it is not.
The Wikibooks community allows administrators and bureaucrats to grant and revoke permissions. For administrator, bureaucrat and CheckUser access, see Wikibooks:Administrators. For bot access, see Wikibooks:Bots.
Administrators and bureaucrats have the trust of the community, and use their discretion when granting or revoking these rights. Requests are made at WB:RFP, where any administrator or bureaucrat can grant the right if they choose to. Requests are archived; declined requests should be explained. Administrators and bureaucrats are responsible for making good decisions regarding which users get the tools. Administrators and bureaucrats are absolutely not to wheel war with user rights - those which do so will not be permitted to change user rights.
- User groups are requested at Wikibooks:Requests for permissions
