What is a group file?

The first thing we should probably clear up is, "what is a global group?".

Simply put, a global group is a group of people that have special permissions. The owner of the group can add or remove people from the group, and then give them special permissions in a group file. These permissions can range anywhere from being able to speak, to all administrator permissions.

Request A Group

In order to use global groups, you obviously need a group to add people to. You can request them here on BZBB. Please follow the current naming convention when asking for a group, which works like this: organization.level. For example, if I owned a server called "bzflagserver", and I wanted to have jradmin, admin, and sradmin groups, the names of those groups would be bzflagserver.jradmin, bzflagserver.admin, and bzflagserver.sradmin.

Possible Permissions

To give people permissions, you first need to know which are available. A list of possible permissions are available on the Server Permissions page.
