The access map in the other tab shows which Roles have which of the following privileges.

General

Submissions

view_submissions

This permission allows the user to view submissions.

editing_submissions::all

This permission allows a user to edit the submission text of all submissions, except for their own submissions. It also allows editing of most submission metadata; it is not sufficient, however, to edit the submission's list of extra users that can edit it. This permission is mostly intended to be used as part of the process for judging submissions.

editing_submissions::judged

This permission is like the previous permission (editing_submissions::all), except that it only applies to submissions that have already been accepted (that is, submissions with a status of "accepted", "publication underway" or "published").

editing_submissions::self-submitted

This permission allows a user to edit the submission text and metadata of their own submissions (including the list of extra users that can edit it).

editing_submissions::appoint

This permission allows a user to edit the list of users that can edit a particular submission.

gamename::add

This permission allows a user to add new entries to the list of game names.

gamename::edit

This permission allows a user to edit existing entries in the list of game names.

gamename::creategroup

This permission allows a user to create a new game group.

edit_roms

This permission allows a user to edit ROM entries in the ROM editor.

edit_addresses

This permission allows a user to edit RAM Adresses in the address editor.

submissions_restricted

This (negative)permission prohibits a user to add new movies to the submission queue. If you plan to submit a movie, please read the Submission Instructions first.

This is intended to curb abuse of queue from those that persistently submit bad runs.

submissions_override_block

This permission allows to submit movies in formats that are supported but not submittable.

Replacing a movie file or uploading to user movies never respects submittability.

publishing_movies

This permission allows a user to publish movies that have been accepted, but not published (i.e. have a status of "decision: accepted" or "publication underway").

To publish a movie, the user must assign the submission a video file torrent, one or more mirror/streaming links, and a movie description; this sets its status to "published" and causes it to appear on the front page.

This permission also allows users to change the status of a movie between "decision: accepted" and "publication underway".

judging_movies

This permission allows a user to make arbitrary changes to the status of submissions, with two exceptions: this permission does not by itself allow changing the status to "publication underway" or "published"; and users cannot change the status of their own submissions. (If a user has both judging_movies and publishing_movies, they can use the combination of the two permissions to set a submission's status to "publication underway" even if it was not previously "decision: accepted".)

unreject_movies

This permission allows a user to reset the status of a rejected submission ("decision: rejected"), changing it back to "new".

replacing_submissions::all

This permission allows a user to replace the input file associated with a submission. (This is mostly used by judges at the request of the submitter, in order to incorporate a minor improvement into a movie that was found shortly after submission.)

replacing_submissions::published

This permission allows a user to replace the input file associated with a submission that has already been published.

delete_submissions

This permission allows a user to completely remove a submission from the site, unless it has already been published.

see_submitters_ipaddr

This permission allows a user to see the IP address that was used to submit a submission.

This permission is intended to be used only to monitor the queue for potential abuse; information obtained using it should be kept confidential.

change_systemid

Normally, the system that a submission is associated with is automatically detected. This permission allows a user to override the automatic detection, setting an arbitrary system for the submission.

Wiki

editing_pages::all

This permission allows a user to edit most pages on the wiki, including Game Resources pages, but excludeing system pages and pages that have been deleted.

editing_pages::homepage

This permission allows a user to edit their own home page. (It has no effect if the user has no assigned home page, or if the home page has been deleted.)

editing_pages::gameresources

This permission allows a user to edit Game Resources pages, and is redundant if the user also has editing_pages::all.

editing_deletedpages::all

This permission allows a user to edit pages that have been deleted.

editing_deletedpages::homepage

This permission allows a user to edit their own home page if it has been deleted.

editing_page_history

This permission allows a user to delete a subset of a page's history, via removing specific revisions.

edit_systempages

This permission allows a user to edit most system pages.

edit_systempages::admin

This permission allows a user to edit the Front Page and the set of tabs at the top of the page.

move_pages

This permission allows a user to move/rename pages on the wiki.

delete_pages

This permission allows a user to mark pages as deleted. (Deleting a page using this permission is reversible.)

move_systempages

This permission allows a user to move or delete a system page.

Movies

These permissions relate to the ability to edit information related to movies. Actions taken using these permissions are tracked in the Movie Maintenance Log.

rate_movies

This permission allows a user to rate movies.

editing_moviehdrs

This permission allows a user to edit movie headers (e.g. the game, ROM, tier, flags and player information).

Note that some tiers/flags may be privileged, requiring additional permissions to change.

editing_movietext

This permission allows a user to edit movie descriptions.

editing_moviecats

This permission allows a user to edit movie categories.

The classes are set out in Movie Class Guidelines.

editing_moviefiles

This permission allows a user to edit many files associated with a movie: the video file torrent, mirror/streaming links, and the screenshot. It does not allow editing of input files.

set_tier

This permission allows a user to change the tier movie is in, except that it does not allow movies to be added or removed from privileged tiers.

edit_recommendation

This permission allows a user to add or remove a movie from privileged tiers. (Currently the only privileged tier is the highest tier, "stars".) It also allows a user to set or clear the "recommended for newcomers" flag on a movie.

view_everyones_ratings

This permission allows a user to view all movie ratings, even ratings made by users who have set their preferences to keep their ratings private.

can_set_obsoletion

This permission allows a user to make arbitrary changes to the metadata that specifies which publications obsolete which other publications. Its intended purpose is to allow a user to specify multiple or cross-platform obsoletions, or to undo obsoletions; for simpler cases, other permissions are normally sufficient.

exceed_ratio

Normally, a user cannot cause a movie to have a torrent with a ratio outside the per-platform limits, even if they have the appropriate permissions to publish the movie or edit the movie's torrent. This permission allows a user to ignore the ratio limit.

override_screenshot

This permission allows a user to override various sanity checks on the files associated with a movie, allowing the following actions (that are normally disallowed):
  • Adding a screenshot that is over 45,000 bytes in size.
  • Adding a screenshot that has a resolution other than the 1 or 2 sizes that are approved for that platform.
  • Adding an animated screenshot.
  • Adding a mirror when there is already a mirror from the same site. (Mirrors of 10bit444 encodes are considered separate from mirrors of non-10bit444 encodes for this purpose.)
  • Adding a streaming link to a site that has not been pre-approved.

set_encode_params

This permission allows user to set allowed platform screenshot sizes and torrent ratio limits (EncoderGuidelines).

edit_players

This permission allows a user to edit the author information for movies in the players list. If the user also has the publishing_movies permission, they can additionally create new entries in the players list.

tvc_upload

This permission allows a user to upload to TASVideosChannel via the site.

tvc_access

This permission allows a user to edit SystemTVCControl entries regardless of who owns them, including changes to the owner.

edit_privileges

This permission, which is only available to admins, allows a user to assign users special privileges.

edit_privileges::restricted

This permission allows a user to assign special privileges to other users, but only if the assigned privileges would be available to a vested editor.

User files

filestorage::upload

This permission allows a user to upload to the User movies, and to edit their own uploads there.

filestorage::admin

This permission allows a user to edit uploads in User movies, regardless of who uploaded them.

Users

Changes made with these privileges are tracked in the User Maintenance Log.

assigning_userpages

This permission allows a user to grant User Pages to other users.

assigning_roles::all

This permission allows a user to assign any role to anyone.

assigning_roles::editor

This permission allows a user to assign any role up to and including "vested editor" to anyone, including "encoder".

assigning_roles::publisher

This permissions allows a user to assign or deassign publisher and encoder roles. It is intended for senior publisher to appoint or unappoint that kind of staff/contributors.

assigning_roles::judge

This permission allows a user to assign or deassign judges. It is intended for senor judge to appoint or unappoint that kind of staff.

assigning_roles::nobody

This permission allows a user to assign "nobody" and "limited" roles to other users (in order to prevent them submitting movies).

assigning_ranks

This permission allows a user to set forum ranks. (In order to set some ranks, the user must additionally be an admin. Additionally, player ranks are automatically calculated, and thus cannot be edited by anyone.)

sitecode::developer

These permission gives a user access to most of the site's source code.
