Content Moderator is a user right that allows users to move and/or delete pages. They can also protect pages from being edited, and edit protected pages.

Only bureaucrats are able to grant users this access, and users may request it at Yu-Gi-Oh!:Requests for content moderator.


Content Moderators have the following features.

Name Function Main uses
autopatrol Have one's own edits automatically marked as patrolled
