Permissions
Confirmed (add request) - The confirmed flag is granted to new users who have not hit the threshold for autoconfirmed status. These are users who have not had both 10 edits and 4 days experience. People with this flag can edit semi-protected pages and no longer have to input a CAPTCHA for most actions. A user requesting this flag must indicate a reason for requiring the flag.


Rollback (add request) - Rollback enables users to remove vandalism much more quickly and efficiently than by undoing it. Users who do not demonstrate an understanding of what constitutes capable vandalism fighting, either because they have no or little history of doing so, or show a poor ability to discern between good and bad faith edits will not be granted this right. For a more detailed explanation of rollback and information about when it is appropriate to use the tool, see here. For information about the technical details of the feature, see here.


Uploader (add request) - Users who are given the Uploader flag ('uploader' user group) site administration just want to discuss this flag with the requesting user and make sure the user is familiar with Everything Food & Drink's Image policy. Note: Image files are uploaded to Everything Food & Drink's sub-domain MyWiki which serves as the project image repository. Users requesting this right must have an active account on MyWiki. If your request is granted the flag will be placed on that account. Please provide a link to your user page at MyWiki with your request.


Importer (add request) - Importers are flags which give permissions on Special:Import. This interface allows users to move pages between wikis. Although MediaWiki software provides the ability to import articles directly from XML (which may come from any wiki site), this is disabled on Everything Food & Drink as well as most other Wiki's. Also this bit has the "bot" flag which does not flood Recent changes when importing large files. See also the import log and Help:Import.


File mover (add request) - The file mover user right is intended to allow users experienced in working with files to rename them, subject to policy. Note: Image files are uploaded to Everything Food & Drink's sub-domain MyWiki which serves as the project image repository. Users requesting this right must have an active account on MyWiki. If your request is granted the flag will be placed on that account. Please provide a link to your user page at MyWiki with your request.


AccountCreator (add request) - The account creator flag is granted to users who are active in the Everything Food & Drink account request process. The flag removes the limit on the maximum number of new accounts that can be created in a 24 hour period. It also allows users to make accounts with names similar to other accounts. The account creator flag is only given to users who participate in the process and may be removed without notice should a user's participation in the account creation process cease.


Ipblock-exempt - While the IP-block-exempt right can also be granted by admins, this should not be requested here. Requests for the IP-block exempt right should be sent to .
