Custodians is a unique user group right in Don't Starve Wiki. Custodians emphasize on the management of articles and files, which is different from [[Rollback. Any wrongly named pages and files can either be renamed or moved by custodians easily. Also custodians can set protection for pages in case of vandalism, and edits made by custodians will be marked as patrolled automatically.

What are the rights of custodians?

Gears.png Reminders to admin:
Please grant both custodian and content moderator rights to new custodians.

Here is a list of rights of custodian:

  • Change protection levels and edit protected pages (protect)
  • Delete pages (delete)
  • Have one's own edits automatically marked as patrolled (autopatrol)
  • Mark others' edits as patrolled (patrol)
  • Move files (movefile)
  • Move pages (move)
  • Move pages with their subpages (move-subpages)
  • Not be affected by rate limits (noratelimit)
  • Not create redirects from source pages when moving pages (suppressredirect)
  • Overwrite existing files (reupload)
  • Quickly rollback the edits of the last user who edited a particular page (rollback)
  • Undelete a page (undelete)
  • View deleted history entries, without their associated text (deletedhistory)
  • View deleted text and changes between deleted revisions (deletedtext)

What are the expectations of custodians?

  4. Avoid controversy in editing.
  5. Acquire community consensus in Discussions when moving or renaming popular content.
  6. Be friendly and answer any inquiries.
  7. Have a huge contribution to the wiki.
  8. Never involve in a major vandalism or |bans.
