    <translate> Information about the autoconfirmed user group on Meta-Wiki.</translate>

    <translate> Several actions on Meta are restricted to user accounts which were created a certain number of days ago and which have made a certain number of edits. Users who meet these requirements are considered part of the pseudo-group <tvar name=autoconfirmed>'autoconfirmed'</tvar>. The conditions for autoconfirmed status are checked every time a user attempts to perform a restricted action; if they are met, permission is granted automatically by the MediaWiki software. Although the precise requirements for autoconfirmed status vary according to circumstances, most Meta user accounts that are more than four days old and have made at least 10 edits (including deleted ones) are considered autoconfirmed.

    General[edit source]

    Autoconfirmed or confirmed users can move pages, and edit semi-protected pages. Autoconfirmed users are no longer required to enter a CAPTCHA for most events. In addition, the abuse filter has a number of warning settings that will no longer affect editors who are autoconfirmed.

    In some situations, it is necessary for accounts to be exempted from the customary confirmation period and instead of having it confirmed right away. The <tvar name=confirmed>'confirmed'</tvar> group contains the almost same rights as the <tvar name=autoconfirmed>'autoconfirmed'</tvar> pseudo-group, but can be granted by administrators as necessary. It is redundant to grant the confirmed right to an account that is already autoconfirmed, since it provides the same abilities and even more.
