HRWiki talk:Bureaucrats

Is this really the extent of the extra powers of a bureaucrat? To assig sysophood and to rename accounts? Wouldn't it be better to have this extremely limited info as a subcategory on the proposed "Administrator" page where the role of the Sysop would be outlined? It seems such a minor difference to merit such a short page. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 02:58, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

See HRWiki talk:Upgrade to MediaWiki 1.8#HRWiki:Bureaucrats for the reasons behind its creation. -- Tom 07:17, 14 January 2007 (UTC)
Thanks, Tom. Reading that, it seems this page was made just because it could, you know? So that all the types of users could have a description. However, that thinking leads to a series of stubby pages which become a little confusing and cluttersome. Beyond sysop, where a great deal of additional access is granted, there's seemingly not a whole lot more assigned to bureaucrats, developers, etc. What I'm thinking might be a better solution is one page on which the various levels of wiki-access are outlined. One-stop shopping.
Consider: if this were a main namespace article, would you consider it worthwhile to roll this info into the main character's article, or add additional info to this article to justify its separate existence? I know I would. If there are no additional things to be said about bureaucrats, perhaps they don't need their own separate page, but a separate section in a generic page concerning all users with access priveleges beyond User. (Note - if you think this should be in a more visible location in order to get more voices in here, feel free to move it.) Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 08:45, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

Can someone list all abilities of a Bureaucrat? Like, can they edit Special Pages? (Not Recentchanges, but like Special:Log or Special:Listusers). Same for sysop -—Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 21:28, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Forget the above comment. Can users who are already system operators become administrators if they have done well with there sysop rights and extras. Mainly, can a user become, a bureaucrat.? —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 22:47, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
