Note:
Most of these user-groups do not exist on actual wikia sites. I just decided to create a list of "possible" customised user groups. For example, having additional user-groups with, say more tools than Roll-backers but fewer tools than Sysops, since there's a lot of things an administrator can do that a rollback can't, yet there weren't any such user-groups in-between when I first created this page.

Fictional Local User Groups

Junior Admins

Junior Admins is a fictional user-group that is between roll-backers and sysops. They have access to most of the sysop tools that appear on the surface, apart from the ones that were recently introduced. The Junior Admin user-group is considered to be a replacement of the User Group A, User Group B, and User Group C user-groups. Unlike Administrators, Junior Admins cannot upload a maximum of 20 images at once. They cannot upload any more images at once than a non-administrator can.

Deluxe Administrators

Deluxe Administrators is a fictional user-group that serves as an extension of the Administrator user-group. It reinstates the Administrator's abilities to block users from sending e-mails[1], not be affected by rate limits[2], and edit all system messages[3], as well as editing other user's CSS and JavaScript data [4].

However it should be noted that editing other user's CSS and JavaScript data should be kept to a minimum and only for certain legitimate reasons, such as fixing broken links, and broken CSS and JavaScript data, and removing spam and hate messages (should they ever be found in other user's CSS and JavaScript pages.

Most other uses are considered illegitimate, and are likely to be considered misuse of the abilities that Deluxe Administrators have been granted with, which may hint at why those abilities were removed from the Administrator user-group in the first place.

Deluxe Administrators also have the ability to delete and un-delete specific revisions of pages[5], delete wall messages with one click[6], mass delete pages[7], and quickly revert and delete spam and vandalism using quick-tools[8].

The Deluxe Administrator user-group also reinstates the Administrator's abilities to override spoofing checks on account renaming[9], even though this ability is largely considered useless by users, hence why the ability was removed from administrative user-groups.

On wikis that have the MergeHistory extension added, Deluxe Administrators have the ability to merge the histories of pages.

User Rights Security

User Rights Security is a fictional user-group that has the ability to revoke bureaucrat rights from candidates that have been voted down by community consensus.

Generally this user-group is unavailable on local communities, but on sites where multiple issues involving bad bureaucrats that are refusing to step down freely have occurred, user rights security access can be considered.

User Rights Security can only have their rights revoked by themselves, or Wikia Utilities, and they can only be promoted by Wikia Utilities.

Blockers

Blockers is a fictional user-group that has the ability to block and unblock users. They also have the ability to bypass IP blocks, auto-blocks and range blocks. Their main purpose is to help keep the wiki clear of disruptive users, more or less similar to the way Chat Moderators kick and ban disruptive users from chat.

Blockers are able to block and unblock any user, but unlike Administrators and Bureaucrats, they cannot unblock themselves. The reason they can't unblock themselves is because Chat Moderators cannot unban themselves if an Administrator bans them. And so I thought that if a Blocker is blocked, they shouldn't be able to unblock themselves if an Administrator blocked them legitimately.

Patrollers

Patrollers are a fictional user-group that is based on existing custom user-groups on other wikis, of the same name. As the user-group name implies, they automatically mark other user's edits as patrolled, and have their own edits automatically marked as patrolled.

There are many versions of this custom user-group, including on external sites outside Wikia. Some known Wikia version examples of the custom user-group can be found here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.

From late January until April 2016 I was under the impression that such a user-group may previously have existed on the Community Central Wiki. However recent re-traces of some of my sandbox archives of past user-groups information from 2014 and 2015 appear to contradict this.

Assistants

Assistants are a fictional user-group that is based on the existing custom user-group of the same name on the Encyclopedia SpongeBobia. It serves as a position between Roll-backers and Administrators. It is sort of similar to the Content Moderator user-group which was introduced in January 2016. An extended version of the Assistant user-group exists on this wiki.

Forum Moderators

Forum Moderators are a fictional user-group that is based on previously existing custom user-groups on other wikis, of the same name. As the user-group name implies, they have additional tools to help them to moderate the forums.

They have all the tools extended to the Thread Moderator user-group, before it was expanded into the Discussion Moderator user-group. Forum Moderators are also able to edit the old forum archives, even if the new forums are enabled.

Comment Controllers

Comment Controllers are a fictional user-group that is based on the existing custom user-group of the same name on the Thomas and Friends Wiki. As the name of the user-group implies, users belonging to that group have the ability to edit and delete comments, and delete blog comments. I actually had previously considered this custom user-group for this wiki.

Image Controllers

Image Controllers are a fictional user-group that is based on the existing custom user-group of the same name on the Thomas and Friends Wiki. As the name of the user-group implies, users belonging to that group have the ability to move files, delete pages, edit blog articles, not be affected by rate limits, move pages without leaving re-directs, and edit comments. I actually had previously considered this custom user-group for this wiki.

Fictional Global User Groups

Look Up Contributions

Look Up Contributions is a fictional user-group that is based on the existing custom user-group of the same name on the Community Central Wiki. As the name of the user-group implies, users belonging to that group have the ability to view user's edits across all Wikia.

Look Up Users

Look Up Users are a fictional user-group that is based on the existing custom user-group of the same name on the Community Central Wiki. As the name of the user-group implies, users belonging to that group have the ability to view user's preferences across all Wikia.

User Roll-backers

User Roll-backers are a fictional global user-group. They are experienced and trusted vandal fighters that have rollback permissions across all of Wikia. They also have access to the userrollback extension which allows them to quickly revert multiple edits by specified users from all affected wikis.[10] Please note that while User Roll-backers have access to the rollback tool, they do not replace local roll-backers on wikis. They also do not pose as local roll-backers unless they are flagged as local roll-backers.

User Roll-backers are just users that can be trusted with tools to revert vandalism when they see it and there are no local administrators or roll-backers around. They can also come in handy when it comes to reverting vandalism on inactive wikis where there are no active administrators or roll-backers around, and there are no VSTF around to take bigger action against cross wiki vandalism pronto. User Roll-backers under most circumstances do not flag themselves as local content moderators or assistants. They must go through the nomination process just like any local user wanting user rights.

Past Fictional Local User Groups

User Group A

The User Group A user-group is no longer active. It has been discontinued.

User Group A was a fictional user-group that was between roll-backers and sysops. They had access to many of the sysop tools, apart from the ones that were introduced in 2015 onward. They had all the tools that User Group C had, and most of the tools that User Group B had.

Strangely, User Group A had the ability to edit protected pages, yet they couldn't change protection levels which wouldn't have been possible with default user-groups. The reason for this was because at the time of this page's creation, I was unaware that the abilities to edit protected pages and change protection levels on Wikia weren't separate.

User Group B

The User Group B user-group is no longer active. It has been discontinued.

User Group B was a fictional user-group that was between roll-backers and sysops. They had access to many of the sysop tools, apart from the ones that were introduced in 2015 onward. They also didn't have the abilities to delete pages, or to block and unblock users. They had all the tools that User Group C had, and most of the tools that User Group A had. They had slightly fewer tools than User Group A, but they had access to a few tools that User Group A did not.

User Group C

The User Group C user-group is no longer active. It has been discontinued.

User Group C was a fictional user-group that was between roll-backers and sysops. They had access to many of the sysop tools, apart from the ones that were introduced in 2015 onward. They also didn't have the abilities to delete pages, or to block and unblock users. They had access to many tools, though they had fewer tools than User Group A and User Group B.

Strangely, User Group C had the ability to edit protected pages, yet they couldn't change protection levels which wouldn't have been possible with default user-groups.

Notes:

  • This page was created before I first discovered the new user-group Assistants on the Encyclopedia SpongeBobia, and requested that the user-group was added on this wiki. I am very happy to have it as a user-group on this wiki, and that it fulfills my want to have a user-group in-between Administrators and Roll-backers.

References:

  1. Although Administrators are still listed as one of the groups that can block users from sending e-mails, they technically do not have this ability anymore. The ability to block users from sending e-mails is an ability extended to Volunteer Spam Task Forces, Wikia Helpers, and Wikia Staff, and was previously extended to Admin Mentors, prior to the group's deprecation.
  2. The ability to not be affected by rate limits is an ability that was previously extended to Administrators, Bots, Bureaucrats, Content Moderators, and Content Volunteers. It is currently extended to Assistants, Volunteer Spam Task Forces, Wikia Helpers, and Wikia Staff. It was also previously extended to Admin Mentors, prior to the group's deprecation.
  3. The ability to edit all user interface messages is an ability extended to Volunteer Spam Task Forces, Wikia Helpers, and Wikia Utilities.
  4. The abilities to edit other user's CSS and JavaScript files were previously extended to Administrators, Admin Mentors, and Wikia Helpers, but are now only extended to Wikia Staff.
