The template {{user groups}} does not list them all. Besides all these, there is a special user group, not listed in these two: developers.
This should be corrected in the template. Kubura (talk) 03:22, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

I think you have reason. You can create a new template with all this user groups in a sandbox so we can see how to modify the original one. :-) Restu20 12:42, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

It should be something like this:

Local: blocked user unregistered user new user - newly-registered user registered user autoconfirmed user (same as autopatrolled/cofirmed user???)  – bot – flooder – reviewer – rollbacker – administrator – bureaucrat – file mover - accountcreator – IP block exempt Importer – transwiki – edit filter manager - abuse filter manager - oversight  – checkuser  – afttest and afttest-hide
Global: locked account unified account bot – rollbacker – abuse filter editor interface editor new wiki importers sysop – researcher  – developer –ombudsman – founder – staff – system administrator steward

"New" groups are in italics. I've consulted also User groups. See also User permissions API, Manual:User rights.
P.S. Restu20, "You have reason" has confused me for a second (it's OK, I understood, but it sounded somehow strange), but just for a second. And then I looked at your userpage. :) Non c'è problema. Ho capito tutto - hai ragione. :) Tanti auguri, Kubura (talk) 03:18, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Si fa prima a parlare in italiano. Comunque scrivo in inglese per farmi capire dagli altri. :-D
Your proposal seems to be very good and I think we can add that user groups in the template. Thank you for this work. :-) Restu20 18:53, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Another new one is template editor. I imagine it should be added here as well. ⇔ ChristTrekker 📫 18:41, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

That is an enwiki-only group (thankfully), so it doesn't need a global info page unless it's going to be more widely used IMO. Ajraddatz (talk) 18:51, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

Template translation[edit]

I have reviewed the Arabic version of the template and found that it is not the same in terms of layout and different items. I tried to see the page template and found that it is not marked for translation. Should it be marked for translation or edited and updated directly using the VisualEditor? --HaythamAbulela 16:03, 26 October 2016 (UTC)

@Haytham abulela: Done. Old translation will be imported. --Kaganer (talk) 20:00, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
@Kaganer: Template updated. Much appreciated. HaythamAbulela 03:55, 14 July 2017 (UTC)
