Remove the 'technican' usergroup on tr.wikiquote
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The 'technican' usergroup (a/k/a interface-editor elsewhere) should be removed or renamed on tr.wikiquote.

My opinion is that we should remove it. Appart from having no user in that group and never ever being used, it cannot be assigned by anyone locally. And since the wiki has no bureaucrats (and it's rather unlikely it'll have them in the near future) no one could be assigned this permission either. This reduces yet another 'dangerous' group to worry about.

In case they decide to keep it, we should have it renamed to interface-editor to match the global standard and reduce the lenght of special entries at $wgPrivilegedGroups of user groups with "dangerous" permissions.
