When a person is part of a faction, they are subject to various levels of restrictions and access known as privileges. These determine what the user can see or do in regards to faction resources. Often, new users may be assigned little to no privileges and may gain additional access as they raise through the ranks. At any time privileges can be added or removed by other users with sufficient rights themselves.

How they Work

Privileges generally work on a number system, With level 1 being the lowest (i.e. being able to make the least change), and the level of access rises as the numbers increase with five or six usually being the highest level in most cases, although there are exceptions. You do not need to assign a lower level to assign a higher level access right although it may sometimes be beneficial to do so since the higher level would work more effectively if the lower level is assigned.

Additionally, depending what permission the user has will determine what faction events appear in the faction events log. For example users must have ships privileges to see various events regarding ship assignments etc.

Templates for Privileges

If your faction has several "roles", each one with different privs, it may be easier to define a "template" for each role. To add a template:

  1. go to the page to give privs to someone. At the bottom of the page it gives you the option to chose templates you've made from a drop down box, or you can create a name and click on the Save button.
  2. This will make the current privs selected on the page as the template.
