TWiki Groups

These groups can be used to define fine grained TWikiAccessControl in TWiki:

Group Members
BlogAdminGroup RuffinaKoza KadVar
BlogAuthorGroup  
MudConnectorGroup DjaAlam
NobodyGroup  
TWikiAdminGroup TWikiAdminUser RuffinaKoza KadVar
TWikiBaseGroup TWikiAdminUser TWikiGuest UnknownUser TWikiContributor TWikiRegistrationAgent

New Group:  
  warning Note: A group topic name must be a WikiWord and must end in ...Group. New topics are based on TWikiGroupTemplate

IMPORTANT NOTE: Think twice before restricting write access to a web or a topic, because an open system where everybody can contribute is the essence of WikiCulture. Experience shows that unrestricted write access works very well because:

  • There is enough peer pressure to post only appropriate content.
  • Content does not get lost because topics are under revision control.
  • A topic revision can be undone by a member of the TWikiAdminGroup if necesssary.
