On which wiki exactly do Auto-confirmed Users have the permission to access chat? By default, only Registered Users and Staff have the permission to access chat, as shown by Special:Listgrouprights. Auto-confirmed Users do not have this permission, but as only Registered Users can be Auto-confirmed, they implicitly have the permission to access chat anyway.
Some wikis have abuse filters that prevent non-auto-confirmed users from accessing chat like this wiki sometimes does, and I know that sometimes you need to be e-mail confirmed to access chat on this wiki. But that's not something that's included in Special:Listgrouprights, and therefore isn't something that should be mentioned.

Additionally, if there is no inappropriate content or other content that would violate policy, it is not necessary to have the page deleted either. If it's just a default userpage without any edits made to it, it can stay.
Hiya!Just wanted to let you know that tagging blogs for deletion is not necessary. I have a list of blogs that require checking which I consult very frequently, so they'll be taken care of eventually. The help is appreciated, however!
"Winmaster1, please be respectful of staff members. If they tell you to do something or not to do something you must abide by it or face possible consequences. And weighing in on this I also would agree those edits are unnecessary and seem to just be benefiting your editing count and achievement count rather than helping out anyone using the NT Wiki."
I do feel like you were doing some unquality work, just adding categories to pages. I also feel as if the categories were useless, especially there will be no page that will just have "Titles" and "Title Achievement." It did kind of feel as if you were just helping out for the achievements, as mentioned on that thread.
You were doing it multiple times to a staff member, especially since one of the Policies stated that you had to respect staff if they did something disruptive.
Tell you what, since we're nominating new administrators for the wiki, I will keep you blocked. However, if you would like to become an administrator, please leave a new message on this message wall saying that you want to become one. Remember, being blocked does not decrease your chances of becoming an administrator, so long as you choose to learn from your own mistakes. I was also on the verge of getting blocked for a week on Nitro Type Wiki just months before I was promoted to an administrator.
Also, thank you for being respectful at the beginning of your post when you said "for good intentions."
Also, if you can't access the post about the new staff members, I'll copy and paste it for you here:
Hey everybody, I have a huge announcement to make on this wiki, and it will hopefully benefit us all. Recently, I have noticed that this wiki could possibly benefit on adding another administrator to the wiki, an active user that can be an extra hand in helping for days when most of us cannot be as active, especially during school days. I don't want current semi-active administrators like myself, $$$lovelife$$$, and LightningTyper to be left alone as well all the time, dealing with problems and drama on our own times. We also want to begin adding moderators that will help us maintain order and be a great contribution to this community, (Click here if you want to know what moderators do), but that will be for another day.
A lot of users here have the potential to be an administrator, but you must understand that this is not a merit you earn from being a good editor; it's a serious responsibility you must take in being a leader in maintaining that the wiki flourishes well. If any of you were here as long as I've been, you should know how crazy things have gone for a long time.
Please do not nominate people this time. If you want to be an administrator, please use THIS forum board to apply yourself. DO NOT use another administrators message wall.We will NOT consider you if you don't follow the rules. If you think you are responsible enough to become an administrator, keep on reading.
Your nomination for yourself should be done no later than Friday, July 8. Do not nominate other users. Good luck!
Please follow the format and answer all questions as honestly as you can. The better effort you put in your answers, the better chance you can prove to yourself that you are READY to be an administrator. An uninvolved bureaucrat will then decide if you have what it takes to become an administrator.
1. Your username, and how long you've edited here.
2. What qualities do you personally believe that you have to be an administrator? If you're an administrator on another wiki, specify the wiki you're on and reflect on how your responsibilities there can apply here(skip this question if this does not apply to you). What qualities do you think make a good administrator, and what skills should one process?
3. Personally, how do you handle situations when you have to take the responsibility and step up as a leader? How will you apply these skills as an administrator? Are you active enough in the community to understand how to deal with certain situations and users?
4.Do you accept full responsibility to have the user rights, the ability, and to be represented as a user who others will refer to often for the entire course you have this position?
Last, please copy and paste the boxes and put an x or check to ones that apply to you.
[ ] I can be active for as often as I can all year long, unless stated for personal reasons (Examples: School, Holidays, Vacations, personal life, etc.)
[ ] I agree to show up to all administrator meetings (the first one should be next month discussing moderators).
[ ]I agree to conduct myself in a dignified and mature manner at all times. I understand that I am an ambassador for the entire Nitro Type Wiki and I have a responsibility to act responsibly and ethically for the sake of the community.
[ ] I understand that being an administrator is a commitment, not a reward.
[ ] I can handle difficult users in the best way that is fair and settles problems quickly.
Thanks for replying! About becoming an administrator . . . I'll think about that. I am often busy with school, but I'll probably be able to squeeze out some time to attend meetings. Everything else I think I'm fine with.
Hmmm. My achievements are not visible on any of the other wikis I am on now. I think it's probably due to me being blocked on NT wiki, but it's probably not your fault. It'll probably just fix itself once my block expires.
If you need help, feel free to leave me a message; you may also want to visit the forums or join us on Chat. You can also check the staff blog to keep up-to-date with the latest news and events around Wikia.
