Wiki creators and wiki managers[edit source]

Hi! What is the difference between Wiki creators and Wiki managers? It appears to be very similar but is different, and requested in the same place. --YellowFrogger (talk) () 23:49, 31 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@YellowFrogger: Wiki managers had the ability to use the special ManageWiki interface on Meta which allows you to remotely change core settings on wikis such as the sitename, language, whether it's private, closed, etc. Agent Isai Talk to me! 23:51, 31 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It seems to be the same thing, as I noted. Is this a group or is it just talking about various groups (eg stewards, bureaucrats) that can change ManageWiki? --YellowFrogger (talk) () 00:00, 1 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
They weren't the same as wiki creators as wiki creators can only access CreateWiki, not ManageWiki. Nowadays, only Stewards and SRE have access to this special ManageWiki interface. Agent Isai Talk to me! 00:18, 1 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Has this group ceased to exist? --YellowFrogger (talk) () 00:16, 1 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It has, yes. Agent Isai Talk to me! 00:18, 1 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It's worth noting that the idea was raised a few times to resurrect this position to perform clerk categorization work, but I've heard of no progress on this count. --Raidarr (talk) 09:30, 1 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
