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.

2006-07-22 [Stephen]: Hey Debby, priv 79 can multibadge. ;)

2006-07-24 [Stephen]: I don't know for sure, since I don't have priv 29, but I think 29 can make members forum bosses with the new little change boss option. :P

2006-07-24 [Sunrose]: Right, thanks :)

2006-07-25 [kittykittykitty]: What priv can edit other member's treasuries?

2006-07-25 [Firenze]: I know priv 79 can multibadge people not sure about treasuries...ET doesn't have treasuries as far as I am aware and m friend who has 79 on ET isn't online so can't ask her, best ask Sunny

2006-07-26 [Sunrose]: I don't think 79 can do that :)

2006-12-22 [icebox8880]: Can I please have privs 99? I've made some graphics and I want to upload them.

2006-12-22 [Big Brother]: what kinda pics do you wish to upload, cause there are upload options in your house at the top for photo albums, do you wish to donate art and such??

2006-12-22 [icebox8880]: Yes that's what I meant. It's bullets and dividers for the ep graphics. I also have prics on ET.

2006-12-22 [icebox8880]: Oh can I also be able to upload transparent graphics?

2006-12-22 [Big Brother]: you now have 99 priv, and as long as you save them properly you can make them transparent.

2006-12-31 [icebox8880]: ^^ thank you! I know how to! *huggles very tight* I LURV YOU!

2007-07-10 [O___O]: I have a question. I had a previous account, and I believe my privs were 94... I'm really only looking for 99 so that I can upload graphics to a wiki I'm hoping to make. Can you help me out?

2007-07-10 [Big Brother]: you had 93, but if 99 is all you need that's what ya got.....why did you switch? what's the point????

2007-07-11 [O___O]: Well. I had been through some family issues, so I had to leave everything and go to another state for a while.... but I tried to get my account back, and I don't have the password, and when try to retrieve it, it says that account doesn't have an yea.

2007-07-11 [Big Brother]: eakk, not cool

2007-07-11 [O___O]: Yeah. I'm not mad about it or anything, I just made a new account. *shrugs*

2007-07-12 [Sunrose]: [Hedda] could maybe help you with that :)

2007-08-09 [MarieFair]: mine is up to 90 so what does that mean exactly. Too bad I can't help out more, but I'm working in RL.

2007-08-09 [Hedda]: It means that you can upload any file to a wiki-page.

2007-08-10 [MarieFair]: O.o.....okay. Thanks [Hedda] cause I saw that some people have things where they can make graphics in there house buy having them say things like. "pretty badges" or "pretty treasures" but in differant styles n such. j/w.

2007-08-11 [Hedda]: You mean people who write with some strange unicode-characters? It's not text in a different style, but letters from other languages that look different.

2007-08-11 [Hedda]: You can just copy that text and paste it anywhere.

2007-08-11 [MarieFair]: oh okay. Ty.

2008-04-27 [kittykittykitty]: Slight rewording was required to help priv 79 members find the 'multibadge' link :9

2008-09-12 [Tear]: I vote that we change the name of privs to skilz
Or Leetness

2008-09-13 [Kaos101]: like skill lvl 14 and skill lvl 29?

2008-09-14 [Hedda]: Too much work and it just makes people even more confused. <img:Br23-gif.gif>

2008-10-21 [itweetinHEELS]: When can i have admin privs again?

2008-10-22 [Big Brother]: you never had admin, you had 89 i believe.

2008-10-22 [Hedda]: When you need it...

2008-10-23 [itweetinHEELS]: oh i use to but ok

2008-12-01 [Amaranthine]: How do you know what priv number you're at?

2008-12-01 [Hedda]: It's shown if you have something low, but I guess I have forgotten to print it somewhere for people with priv 90-99. I fixed it for the upcoming version! 

You have 99, and therefore have the wiki-upload button to the right and an invitation-link on Mainstuff.

2008-12-09 [itweetinHEELS]: Am i able to have my priv changed yet ?

2008-12-09 [Hedda]: [itweetinHEELS]: What do you need fixed?

2008-12-09 [itweetinHEELS]: because i thought i would have diff privs since being in Council

2008-12-10 [Hedda]: It's pretty pointless to give you privs if you aren't going to use them.

2008-12-11 [itweetinHEELS]: i use you know the Admin edit? yeah i dont have that one because i'm working on a competition for next year, still working on it so hopefully it'll come out right =]

2008-12-28 [Zombiie Natiion]: im so confused what is this?

2008-12-30 [Amaranthine]: Its a count of privs you have and what that number you have can do. Pretty much it almost tells you what kind of authority or power you have here on elfpack. Or how much experience or knowledge of elfpack someone has.

2008-12-30 [Zombiie Natiion]: oh right i see lol

2009-01-28 [Andy8178]: Wow... Apparently I want to more than help lol... 99.

2009-03-08 [Nekko fox]: What is this priv number about? And how does one get a better score?

2009-03-08 [Nekko fox]: More accurately, my question is...when did this come about and what is it for?

2009-03-08 [Bookwyrm]: Privs have been around for...quite a while. I believe since Elfpack's creation, or close to it, you'd have to ask [Hedda]. However it's not a "score." Privs are given to people who do specific jobs around Elfpack. Like Guards have the 14 priv so that they can do their jobs. Most of the lower privs (not sure about the iframe one, but up until that one at least) can be obtained if requested. Council or higher require that you have that specific job. :)

2009-03-08 [Nekko fox]: Ah, I see. Because it wasn't until today that I saw at the top that it said I had a 'priv' number.

2009-03-08 [Bookwyrm]: Yeah everyone has one. ^_^

2009-03-08 [Nekko fox]: Curious.

2009-03-09 [Big Brother]: i thought you had to be less than 90 to see your own priv...or anyone else's....

2009-03-09 [Nekko fox]: Really now? How very curious.

2009-03-10 [Bookwyrm]: Yeah I did too, but I think [Hedda] may have changed that? I think I got a few messages a while back asking me about it.

2011-10-03 [Stephen]: That should make things a bit more clear. =P

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.
