FANDOM


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

These additional functions include:

  • 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 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.
  • Editing Wiki Navigation (help)

Bureaucrat abilities

A bureaucrat can access all the powers stated above and make other users into bureaucrats or administrators on their own wiki. Bureaucrats can also give users the ability to "rollback" edits not made in good faith.

However, at My Miis Wiki, no bureaucracy privileges will be granted. The reason why is if a bureaucrat makes edits in bad faith, vandalizes the Wiki, etc, the community will have to contact Staff, and that is a heck of a lot more work than that needs to be- for the main admin, the other admins, and especially, the staff. Staff could have been using that time to settle disputes on more important wikis, like Star Wars Wiki, for instance.

Staff

Wikia staff members have full access to all Wikia. They will be shown in Special:Listusers/staff on any wiki. Please use Special:Contact to contact Wikia staff.

How do I use administrator powers?

See Help:Administrators' how-to guide for a guide on using admin functions.

Becoming an administrator

Please note that the process of adminship differs depending on the wiki of choice.


In order to become an administrator (on this wiki), you must meet certain qualifications. These rules somewhat model the rules at Community Central's requirements of wiki adoption.

Requirements
Requirement Description
Is another admin really needed? Answer: Probably.
Are you eligible for adminship?

You have not been blocked on this wiki for any reason for any amount of time. (Unfair blocks are excluded)

Have you been contributing to the wiki?

You must have had at least 100 mainspace edits.

(Number may fluctuate over time)

You must have created a new article.

(Number may fluctuate over time)

If there are no active bureaucrats and you wish to become an administrator or adopt the wiki, please contact IAmAwesome2. She will respond in a matter of days or weeks. If there are other active editors but no active bureaucrats/admins, you should first discuss with them on who should become an admin, whether it be one of you, or all of you.

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. According to Community Central, an admin shouldn't be considered "in charge", but more often than not, they are. 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.
