Different users have access to different functions of the site. While anyone can do most things on the site, including reading and editing, administrators can access a few additional functions.
- Deleting and undeleting pages and page histories. Administrators can also delete uploaded files, but cannot undelete them.
- Locking (protecting) a page so it can not be edited or renamed by users without admin rights.
- Blocking IP addresses or user names from editing; and very quick "rollback" of undesirable edits.
- Editing the interface by changing system messages and skins.
A bureaucrat can make other users into bureaucrats or administrators on their own wiki.
Who are this wiki's administrators?Edit
The "founder" of a wiki, the person who first requested it, is given administrator access automatically. Founders are also given bureaucrat access so they can make any other user on their wiki an administrator or bureaucrat. For a complete list of users with administrator access, see Special:Listadmins.
- Gyarados Magnus (talk) (also a bureaucrat)
- Randomg (talk)
- Lightening McQueen (talk) (also a bureaucrat)
- Will49 (talk)
How do I use administrator powers?Edit
See the administrators' how-to guide for a guide on using admin functions.
Becoming an administratorEdit
For you to become an administrator, someone with bureaucrat access must make you one. To make a request, either leave a message on the talk page of an active admin (see list, above) or start a new discussion here.
On this Wiki, you must do a good bit of editing for a few months and learn all the tricks of the wiki for you to be considered for Adminship. Bureaucrat status is rarely given out.
If there are no active bureaucrats and you wish to become an administrator, please contact the community staff on the Central Wikia.
Past requests for adminship can be seen can be seen here.
What can administrators not do?Edit
Administrators should not use their administrator powers to settle editing disputes; for example, to lock a page on a version he or she prefers in an editing dispute that isn't vandalism. Administrator powers should be use to help keep the wiki clear of vandalism, spam, and users who make malicious edits, but not for simple disagreements between users acting in good faith. Idealy an admin shouldn't be considered "in charge". The ideal admin is just someone who is trusted to have a few extra buttons and to use them for the benefit of the Wikia community.
