FANDOM


Administrators are users who have proved themselves to be a very reliable editor of One Wiki to Rule Them All and have worked their way up to become an administrator. They are usually the most reliable members of the community and can be contacted with queries. 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, which are:

  • Deleting and undeleting pages, page histories, and uploaded files.
  • Locking (protecting) a page so it cannot 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. However, he or she is not currently able to remove admin access from any user; please contact one of the community staff if you need that done.

Some FANDOM staff members have full access to all wikis. They will be shown in Special:Listusers/staff on any wiki. VSTF have limited administrative access to all wikis for cleanup purposes. These users will be shown on Special:Listusers/janitor on any wiki. Please see the Community Central contact page for details on how to contact staff personnel.

Becoming an administrator

See also: Requests for adminship

For you to become an administrator, someone with bureaucrat access must make you one. You may simply ask on the community portal or Forum, or ask a bureaucrat directly on his or her talk page.

If there are no active bureaucrats and you wish to become an administrator, please contact the community staff on the Central Wikia.

What can administrators not do?

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.
