Anton requesting interface-admin with a valid need.  Granted by Consul RhinosF1.

Hi, because you are a consul, I will ask you this. I read this information page from interface administrators. Since I would like to fix and fix sidewide system messages and take a closer look at useful Gadgets, I am asking you for the confidential task of interface administrator. Thanks,

And I ask this also because you took the rights to edit system messages from bureaucrats on ManageWiki.

 Granted Please be careful with your usage as it affects all users rather than just you.

Anton (talkcontribs)

Of course, thank you.

Anton The reason is because only Consuls could edit other users' CSS/JS files, so in talking to Naleksuh, HeartsDo, and Reception123, we determined the best course of action would be to recreate the interface-admin user group. We could've left the sitewide CSS/JS user rights in bureaucrat, I suppose, but did seem a bit redundant. Note, though, that one does not need interface-admin to edit interface messages, as any sysop can do this as it only requires the editinterface user right. Please do be careful with adding too many unnecessary system messages, though, or to making potentially controversial changes, as RhinosF1 said above.
