TWiki Groups

These groups can be used to define fine grained TWiki Access Control in Foswiki:

Group Members
BaseGroup AdminUser WikiGuest UnknownUser ProjectContributor RegistrationAgent
AdminGroup AdminUser AndyPryke
TWikiAdminGroup DataMineAdmin
TrustedGroup AndyPryke

New Group:
  warning Note: A group topic name must be a Wiki Word and must end in ...Group. New topics are based on TWiki Group Template

IMPORTANT NOTE: Think twice before restricting write access to a web or a topic, because an open system where everybody can contribute is the essence of Wiki Culture. Experience shows that unrestricted write access works very well because:
  • There is enough peer pressure to post only appropriate content such as car games.
  • Content does not get lost because topics are under revision control.
  • A topic revision can be undone by a member of the TWiki Admin Group if necesssary.
