You may have noticed in your house, you have a message that says "Current priv (Can't be changed): <number>". Chances are you got to this page by clicking on the word priv. Your priv is your member privilege level. For most members, this number is between 90 and 101. A priv enables you to do something special on Elftown -- be it uploading an image directly to a wiki-page, banning a member, or editing Main Street. The following information describes what these strange and mystical numbers enable and who generally has them.


Priv 101
This is the priv of the normal member. All new members have this priv. It doesn't enable any special features.

Priv 100
If you select that you want to be a member of the Elftown Crew in your presentation, your priv will be 100. It doesn't enable anything, either.

Priv 99
A priv of 99 enables a member to upload any image type and size to a wiki-page, using the wiki-upload option in the right side bar. Press the "Upload a file" button to make the upload box appear. It also enables the ability to invite other members to join Elftown -- a link to inviting members will appear on Main Street, and in your house. (Inviting bypasses the application process.)

Priv 94
Priv 94 enables you to upload any file to a wiki-page. It is mostly used for artists who wish to upload their works in formats other than general images. The upload box is used the exact same way the image upload box is. If you have this priv, please do not upload copyrighted files or large files to Elftown. If you want to upload a large file that you created, message [Hedda] first.

Priv 90
Priv 90 is the lowest priv a normal member can have. It enables the use of the iframe tag.

The following privs are Crew-Only

Priv 89
Council Members have this priv. It enables the editing of Main Street articles and polls, the ability to make any page an index page, the ability to edit your own badge slot and the ability to give members a priv of 90 or higher.

Priv 79
Council members who give out badges have this priv. It enables the ability to give other members badges.

Priv 49
Wiki Bosses and some Council members have this priv. It enables the ability to view any wiki-page, and all wiki-pages can be edited with page owner rights.

Priv 29
Guards-in-Training have this priv. It enables seeing and editing to-Guards tickets filed on members, deleting posts from any forum, changing forum bosses and handling member applications.

Priv 14
Guards have this priv. It enables writing secret-service comments on member houses, seeing IP-Addresses, changing other members' data, writing alarm notes and banning/unbanning members.

Priv 13
Guard Sergeants have this priv. It enables deleting all wiki-page comments at once and erasing all the past versions of a wiki-page, making the current version the newest (and only) version.

Priv 4
The Guard Captain and Lieutenants have this priv. It enables being able to change anyone's priv to any priv from 1-100, reading all private messages, making forum-dictators and changing the Main Street stylesheet.

Priv 2
The ViceMayor has this priv.

Priv 1
The Mayor has this priv, it enables being able to appoint more "titles and orders" in a member's house.

2011-07-08 [djxmonster]: icanhaz 90 for iframe?

2011-07-08 [SilverFire]: Done. :)

2011-08-19 [William Christian Inuma]: Could I have the I-frame privilege? Thank you.

2011-08-19 [kians mummy]: May I just say, wouldn't it be better to have a note on this wiki saying "Do not ask for any priv under 90, as these are actual crew jobs, and therefore you will not get it."

2011-08-19 [iippo]: Inuma: done :)

2011-08-19 [William Christian Inuma]: It's appreciated.

2011-08-20 [iippo]: Use it wisely :P

2011-08-21 [William Christian Inuma]: Of course.

2011-09-21 [Mortified Penguin]: It seems during all the crashing and the downtime, I have lost my priv 4 as well as my guard badge. It's fine though, as long as I get them back sometime in the near future, so I can resume my guardly duties.

2011-09-21 [Lord Josmar]: Yea, I had 1 priv too and all that's gone! I expect financial compensation!

2011-09-21 [Mortified Penguin]: It's true, I can totally vouch for him.

2012-02-01 [Lord Josmar]: Can I have priv 94?

2012-02-01 [Mortified Penguin]: Sure.

2012-02-01 [SilverFire]: Done.

2012-02-01 [Lord Josmar]: Thanks.

2012-04-15 [9jlriexqk,ktpk]: I did nt know people could see ip addresses. Mind you, I think if its hedda or somebody they aren't going to do anything mean with them.

2013-03-08 [kians mummy]: Just thought I would let you know, anyone can edit this page, shouldn't it be set to crew only? :)

2013-03-08 [Mortified Penguin]: There's no need, hardly anyone even knows about this page and it can easily be fixed if anyone edits it.

2013-08-29 [Sunrose]: Dumdidum..

2013-08-30 [Teufelsweib]: wh00p

2013-08-30 [djxmonster]: O_o
