Bureaucrats is a usergroup which has added privileges over the administrators usergroup. Before the first server transfer, bureaucrats were mainly Scratch Team members. The full list of bureaucrats can be found here. The Bureaucrats usergroup is not a status symbol, but rather a way to allow certain users greater control over the wiki in order to further help the community.


Most of the time, bureaucrats are also placed in the administrator user group. This means that the administrator rights and the bureaucrats rights are merged. To see the rights each user group has, see this page for more information. The main rights that a bureaucrat has, but an administrator does not, are:

  • block: blocking users from the wiki — See Help:Blocking users
  • blockemail: blocks a user from sending an email to another user; although that feature isn't used on this wiki, bureaucrats still have that right over administrators
  • lookupcredentials: looking up account request information for users after they are created; this is now obsolete with the current account request system
  • interwiki: edit interwiki data
  • requestips: view a requested account's IP address
  • userrights: edit all user rights — See: Special:ListGroupRights and Help:Assigning permissions
