Oversight on Vikidia (also called suppression) is a feature that can be used to hide revisions, usernames, edit summaries or logs, if the content that has to be hidden may not be visible for normal users and sysops. It may only be used if it meet at least one of the requirements listed below.

Due to the access to private information and/or information hidden due to legal issues, Oversight access is only available to a small number of users, users who are members of the Vikidia Association.
