Techs on RationalWiki are appointed to do—as the title suggests— technical work.

POWER[edit]

Techs have the ability to (1) alter the edit filter, which affects how RW handles spam and repetitive trolls like Mikemikev, (2) add/remove all user rights, (3) rename users, and (4) alter MediaWiki: space pages, which are mostly user interface items like MediaWiki:Sitenotice (the donation notice) and MediaWiki:Sidebar (the main site sidebar on your left).

However, techs have no community authority and cannot police other users -- unlike moderators.

Request rights[edit]

You can request to be appointed a tech at RationalWiki:Requests for tech rights.

Current techs[edit]

See Special:ListUsers/tech for a list of current techs (there are 16).
