Redundant entry

Right now you have block vandals listed as a right of members, but also under senior members "all the privileges of members plus these." It should only be in one place. --TimStalk 03:26, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

True. Fixed. Philip J. Rayment 03:36, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
I'm listed as a non-member, but I've created some new pages and templates. Is this okay? --Ed Poor 00:40, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
Well it looks as though Philip has not adjusted the rights so that non-members cannot create pages in the mainspace. Jallen 02:03, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
He'd be wise not to. This place is seriously beset by red links, and it seems as if some people working on them are non-members. TheoryOfPractice 02:09, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
This had been queried elsewhere, and I had commented out the line that said that non-members couldn't create new pages, at least as a temporary measure. I've now changed this page also. Philip J. Raymentdiscuss 15:07, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Is there a list of who has what rights anywhere? Historian 02:49, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Apart from this project page, there's also special:ListGroupRights and the links on that page. Philip J. Raymentdiscuss 15:07, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

From that list-->Ruylopez ‎(Member). Giving "Conservative" rights = a FANTASTIC idea. That is win. TheoryOfPractice 03:40, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, if that member really is Ken... eh, whatever, TK is gonna turn up if he's not already here and you'll have some lovely management issued to resolve. I wish you (PJR/the site) the best of luck with that. ħuman Number 19 03:48, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
"Member" rights are minimal. The requirement for membership is basically that we've decided (either because we know you or because of your pattern of edits) that you're not here to vandalise, upload pornography, etc. Philip J. Raymentdiscuss 15:07, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Presentation

Perhaps the "rights" should be presented as a table with pretty X's in boxes? ħuman Number 19 03:48, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Creating new articles....

All i have to do is make a random red link on any page: like this and I can then create the article. You need a better system, I fear. TheoryOfPractice 15:22, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
