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.
Administrator abilities Edit
These additional functions include:
- Deleting and undeleting pages, page histories, and uploaded files.
- Locking a page so it cannot be edited or renamed by users without admin rights or autoconfirmed status.
- Blocking IP addresses or user names from editing; and very quick "rollback" of undesirable edits.
- Editing the interface by changing system messages and skins.
Bureaucrat abilities Edit
A bureaucrat is essentially a "lesser Admin" or replacement staff member for Admin who may not be around. Bureaucrats can also give users the ability to "rollback" edits not made in good faith.
Wikia staff members have full access to all Wikia.
Who are this wiki's administrators? Edit
The "founder" of a wiki, the person who first made 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.
The following Members are the Wiki Admin:
Becoming an administrator Edit
This wiki searches for good, active Members to officially join the staff. Be sure to use good judgement and do your best to follow common Wiki Rules and Behavior.
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 used 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. Ideally 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.
