About Access Levels[edit source]

Shortcut:
WT:SYSOP

Administrators, or sysops, are editors who have access to technical features that help with maintenance. Those include protecting and deleting pages, blocking other editors, and undoing these actions as well.

What can administrators do?[edit source]

The wiki software has a few important features that are restricted to only administrators and bureaucrats.

  • Edit protected pages.
  • Protect and unprotect pages.
  • Delete pages, including images, and their history.
  • View and restore deleted pages, including images, and their history.
  • Block and unblock users, IP address, and IP ranges.
  • Revert pages quickly via the rollback method.
  • Change the text and style of the interface by editing the pages in the MediaWiki namespace.
  • Can view Special:Unwatchedpages to see pages which may be more vulnerable to vandalism.

Access types[edit source]

Types of identified users, listed here in roughly ascending order of power, include:

  • IP addresses — Visitors who haven't logged in or are unregistered.
  • Registered/Logged-in users — Users who have registered an account. Registered users can upload files and move pages, as well as edit some protected pages.
  • Rollbackers — Users who have the ability to use the Rollback function (you are automatically a rollbacker if you are an administrator or a bureaucrat).
  • Patrollers — Users who have the ability to mark edits on the recent changes as patrolled and have their own edits automatically patrolled.
  • Bureaucrats — Bureaucrats (also known as B'crats) can turn other users into sysops or bureaucrats. Bureaucrats are created by other bureaucrats on projects where these exist. Sysoppings are recorded in Special:Log/rights.
  • Staff — Employees of Wikia Inc. They can change any user's access level and grant bot status. They can be found at Special:Listusers/staff.

Becoming an administrator[edit source]

If you have been editing this wiki for some time and have gained the trust of the community here, you may nominate yourself or someone else for adminship over at Wikitroid:Requests for Access. Other users can comment on whether or not they approve your request. However, the final decision is up to the bureaucrats.

To nominate yourself[edit source]

  1. In the form below replace the text that shows USERNAME with your username (double check spelling).
  2. If this is your second nomination or subsequent, then add a space after the username with a number corresponding to the number of Requests for Access you have performed. If it is your second, put space 2. If it is your third, space 3 and so forth. Deleted RfAs do not count towards this number.
  3. When you are taken to the next page Edit that page and follow the instructions listed there.
  4. Save the page.
  5. Re-edit the page again, and delete the acceptance line. Also answer the standard questions for all candidates. These questions are optional, but chances are the RfA will fail if they are not answered.
  6. If there are any co-noms that wish to participate in the RfA they need to list their names there now.
  7. When you are ready to submit the RfA, go to the top of the page and edit the date to reflect 7 days AFTER the day you submit (this is when it will expire).

  10. Replace The text that says USERNAME to reflect your username (exactly as you did when you created the RfA. If it was space 2, then add that was well. It has to be exactly as it was when you originally created it.
    After you have added the above code into the main RfA page this template will be included there.
    At this point users will be able to vote as normal.

Warning: Failure to follow these instructions exactly may result in your RfA being deleted, with no modification of your user rights. <createbox> preload=Template:RfAsubst prefix=Wikitroid:Requests for access/ default=USERNAME buttonlabel=Nominate yourself bgcolor=#eeeeff width=50 </createbox>
