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.

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
