Description OverlordQ 2009-03-09 05:19:16 UTC
The installer should add an option to automatically promote the default WikiSysop account to the bureaucrat user group in addition to admins.

By default, you need to be in the crat group to change user permission, and also by default there is no crat user created, so in order to do this users would have to go into the DB and hand edit which is a decidedly ungood solution.

Oops, just tested it again realized it did do this. Didn't use to do this for me before with recent versions :(
