Permission Granted

Classification
TypePattern
FocusAdoption

This pattern denotes the “security” scheme used by wikis in which anyone can edit any content. Experience has shown that this can be a powerful tool in conjunction with the Selective Rollback pattern.

Usage

Turn off all permissions on the wiki, except those having to do with rollback. Allow any user to perform any action on behalf of the site.

Example

The original http://c2.com considered this a key aspect of wikis.
