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 general members, this number is between 90 and 101. A priv enables you to do something special on Elfpack -- be it uploading an image directly to a wiki-page, banning a member, or editing Mainstuff. The following information describes what these strange and mystical numbers enables 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 Elfpack 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 Elfpack -- a link to inviting members will appear on Mainstuff, and in your house.

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 enabled the exact same way the image upload box is. If you have this priv, please do not upload copyrighted files or huge files to Elfpack. 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
Trainee Council Members and some Volunteers have this priv. It enables the editing of Mainstuff articles and polls, the ability to make any page an index page, the ability to edit your own badge and treasury slots and the ability to give members a priv of 90 or higher.

Priv 79
Council members and Contest Mod Volunteers have this priv. It enables the ability to give other members badges and treasury slot items using the 'Multibadge' link in <URL:bookmarks.html>.

Priv 49
Custodians 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
Advanced/Senior Guards 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 Sergeants 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, changing the Mainstuff Stylesheet, giving special "titles and orders" in the memberhouse and writing Mainstuff Ads.

Priv 3
The Deputy Wardens have this priv. It's essentially the same as priv 4, it's just a symbolic number.

Priv 2
The Warden (Stephen) has this priv.

Priv 1
The Programmer (Hedda) has this priv.

2011-10-09 [sammie h!]: Please may I have priv 94

2011-10-09 [Stephen]: Sure and done. :)

2011-10-09 [sammie h!]: Thanks [Stephen]

2011-10-09 [Stephen]: You're welcome. :)

2011-12-06 [sammie h!]: I didn't know some volunteers had priv 89, I forgot lol, Cool, I hope to get up to that one day, I'll keep working..... when I have work to do..... which is once a month lol

2011-12-06 [Stephen]: Privs are assigned to people who need the priv to do their job. ;)

Some Volunteers work at things like Elfpack Jokes, or Featured Poem, and thus they need privs to update Mainstuff. Some Volunteers are also given priv 79, so that they can give out badges depending on what they do. Everything above is a "generalized" statement -- just because someone is for example, a Contest Mod, doesn't mean they always get priv 79.

[Morgoth] is a Volunteer with priv-49, but he's possible to be reinstated on the Council.

2011-12-07 [sammie h!]: Ok then, no worries. :)

2013-01-23 [sammie h!]: I clicked <URL:bookmarks.html>. and it lead me to my notes???

2013-01-27 [Stephen]: Yes.. if you read the page, you'll see a button that says "Multibadge members" near the top. :P

2013-01-27 [sammie h!]: Oh ok, I thought it would lead straight to the multibadge page x

2013-02-18 [sammie h!]: With Priv 49 shouldn't they be able to Delete forum postings? :)

2013-02-18 [Stephen]: Nope, that's priv 29

2013-02-18 [sammie h!]: ok. :)

2013-03-05 [sammie h!]: Just a quickie, with Priv 29 regarding members applications, is that when a member signs up for the site or when a member applies to be crew? :)

2013-03-06 [Stephen]: Signs up for the site.

Really on the Warden directly decides on new Crew members, although it's normally a group decision.

2013-03-06 [sammie h!]: but we accept anyone anyway don't we?

2013-03-06 [Stephen]: Not.. exactly.

We don't allow members to have clone house. So it's mostly a way to check that. We also don't allow banned members to come back most of the time (unless it's been a long time), so we keep them out the same way.

2013-03-06 [sammie h!]: Now I get you. :)

2013-03-26 [sammie h!]: The new Priv banner is now up thanks to me lol.

2013-05-01 [Simpet]: Why thank you, [sammie h!]. Without your amazing skills, this page may have forever been without a banner. I'm glad you felt the need to bold your accomplishments, to ensure it was noticed.

2013-05-02 [kittykittykitty]: What is going on here. Banners are important yo.
