Consuls are, primarily, the main "not-for-testing" user group. Among other things, Consuls have the right to remove the bureaucrat bit from any user (bureaucrats can only give the bit to others) and assign bot flag permanently or temporarily (almost always following a request at TestWiki:Bot approval requests). It should be noted that bureaucrats could previously assign the bot flag temporarily to their own account or others' accounts, but should not have approved permanent bot accounts, at least not without having a Consul reviewed such requests first) until the creation of the flooder group.

Eligibility and Methodology for Granting

You can request Consul on the community portal, where you will get chosen per consensus (not like administrator or bureaucrat).


A Consul can only be demoted only by a steward, and will only be demoted in one of these instances:

  • it is requested at TestWiki:Community portal with overwhelming consensus;
  • the user has demonstrated obvious misuse of the bit on this wiki (i.e., unprecedented removal of permissions from all bureaucrats or other consuls);
  • the user has been abusive across wikis;
  • the user has in any way violated Miraheze's global policies or standards; or,
  • the user voluntarily resigns
  • the user has been inactive for a period of 6 months or more (log actions, edits, contributions to TestWiki in any manner)
