While all users on Brickipedia have the ability to edit, move and create most pages, some users have additional rights. These rights should only be used in the case of vandalism, preventing vandalism, or when applying decisions made by the entire Brickipedia community. To nominate a user for a user right, please see here.

Chatmoderators

Superordinate user classes contain all rights of the respective subordinate classes.

Patrollers

Users who create many articles are assigned the auto-patroller right. All that this right does is automatically mark the user's edits as "patrolled", so the counter-vandalism unit knows that they are trusted to make good edits. This right is assigned by Administrators to those who need it, and can also be requested at Brickipedia:Administrators' noticeboard. A full list of patrollers on Brickipedia can be found at Special:ListUsers/patroller.

Rollbackers

Rollback adds a link to histories and recent changes that allows you to revert multiple edits made by the same user in one click. It is a simple and not terribly special tool, but it makes reverting vandalism very fast. Rollbacking should only be used to revert bad-faith edits. A full list of users with the rollback right can be found at Special:ListUsers/rollback, and rollback can be requested at Brickipedia:Administrators' noticeboard.

Chat Moderators

Chat Moderators are able to kick/ban users from Special:Chat. Chat Moderator rights can be requested at Brickipedia:User rights/Requests.

Administrators

Administrators are able to delete and protect pages, along with being able to block vandals and grant patroller rights. More information on Administrator rights, and how to contact Brickipedia's Administrators can be found on Brickipedia:Administrators.

Bureaucrats

On top of administrator abilities, bureaucrats are able to grant users any of these rights mentioned above. There are generally only a few active bureaucrats at a time, as their only added role in the community is determining consensus on adminship and bureaucratship requests, and granting the said rights.

CheckUsers

CheckUsers have the technical ability to see the IP of users, and which users use a certain IP. This is done in accordance with the policy. There are only three CheckUsers at any given time on Brickipedia.

Bots

Bots' edits do not appear in the recent changes by default, and are used to perform automated functions such as categorizing or fixing spelling. Bots can also suppress redirects when moving pages, and edit semi-protected pages. Bots are selected and assigned the right by the Bot Approval Group. A list of bots can be found at Brickipedia:Bots.
