Administrators are users who have proved themselves to be a very reliable editor of the Wiki 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. They have the power to delete pages if they are spam/vandalism and block users if they have vandalized on the Wiki at all. The purpose of an administrator is to keep peace on the Wiki and to keep vandalism at bay.
Administrators can also edit the pages that make up the Wiki, such as the sidebar, site notice and the coding for the looks of the Wiki too.
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.
Who are this Wiki's administrators?
In addition to the table below, the list of administrators can also be viewed by checking the "List Local Users" page.
Administrators can update the following sections to give an overall indication of how active they are on the Wiki.
These additional functions are:
Most Wiki staff members have full access to all Wiki (except techs). They will be shown in Special:Listusers/staff on any Wiki. Please see the Central Wiki contact page for details on how to contact Wiki staff.
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 Wiki community.
