User groups[edit]

Unregistered IP users[edit]

Unregistered IP users cannot upload files, but can make most other edits.

AbuseFilter/105 (as proposed in Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/Archive 39#Proposed Change of Rules) prevents some page creation by anonymous users. The relevant MediaWiki message is MediaWiki:Abusefilter-warning-new-pages-by-anon-users.

  • As soon as IPs create an account, they can create pages.
  • Only page creation is prevented. Edits to existing pages are possible.
  • Talk namespaces are not affected (they can be created by IPs).
  • IPs can create category-pages, timed-text and deletion request subpages.

OTRS members[edit]

See also: Commons:OTRS

This flag used to be given to all admins. However not all admins are OTRS members so in about mid-2012, Special:AbuseFilter/69 was changed so that users who do not have the OTRS flag have their OTRS edits marked in the history logs as "(OTRS permission added by non-OTRS member)". This will occur even if a valid OTRS member adds OTRS templates to files but that member has not been given the OTRS flag yet.
