Different users have different rights on the Wikia. Anyone can edit pages, but when it comes to additional functions like deleting pages, administrators are the only one with enough power.
With great power comes great responsibility. Only those chosen by TerminaVelocity on High Hrothgar may obtain these powers. What does it entail, you may ask? Well, look no further. Your answer lies below.
- Deleting and restoring pages, histories, and files.
- Protecting a page so it can't be edited or renamed by anyone other than an admin.
- Blocking people from editing the Wiki and rollbacking that user's edits.
- Making the Wiki look really neat.
A bureaucrat can grant power upon others by giving them admin or bureaucrat rights. However, that person cannot remove admin access from a user. If there is an issue and someone needs to be stripped of their admininity, please contact one of the community staff.
Certain Wikia staff members have full access to all of Wikia. They are listed under Special:Listusers/staff on any wiki. Helpers have limited access to all Wikia for cleanup purposes. They will be shown on Special:Listusers/helper on any Wikia. Please see the Central Wikia contact page for details on how to contact them.
Using admin powers
Please see the administrators' how-to guide for a guide on using admin functions.
Becoming an admin
If you feel you're worthy of becoming an admin, contact TerminaVelocity why you think you're fit for the job.
Is their no end to their power?
Of course, admins are not all-powerful. There is a limit to their powers, and things they should not do. Do not let your emotions get in the way. Use your power wisely and only to benefit the community, not yourself. This includes blocking people who tick you off but aren't doing anything wrong, or locking a page because you feel it's better the way you did it. You are not "in charge." This is a community effort. If you're trusted enough to be an admin, show us you're worthy of the trust.
