Hello! Project Wiki

Administrators AKA admins or sysops are users with greater capability to shape a wiki.

Groups[]

  • Bureaucrat is a user who has the ability to give admin status to other users. There are 1-2 bureaucrats at each time.
  • Administrator (also known as "admin" or "sysop") is a trusted user who is generally chosen by the admin community.
  • Content moderator (also known as "sub-admin" at this fandom) is a user who have additional tools available to moderate specific parts of the community.
  • Rollback is a user with permission to undo unwanted/bad edits with a single click.

Capabilities and Responsibilities[]

Wikia is a pretty open system. For the most part even users without an account can edit any page any way they please. So what are the capabilities and roles of an admin beyond that of any other user?

Constructive[]

Admins have control over the general look of the wiki, what differentiates it from another random Wikia. Color schemes, background image, favicon, logo, things like that.

There are also certain pages behind the scenes (MediaWiki and CSS) that only admins can modify. This might allow for more change in the look of a wiki, changes in site behavior through adding in pieces of Javascript, changes in the badges people earn for doing various tasks, and many other things.

It's also possible to toggle on or off certain wiki features like polls, forums, different styles of editor--though in general stuff like that isn't going to be tinkered with often.

Defensive[]

If troubles are being caused, admins have several tools at their disposal to try and stop it. Certain users (or their IP addresses) can be blocked from editing. Pages can be set to a protected state where they can't be modified. Inappropriate comments can be deleted.

Maintenance[]

Largely this comes down to the power to delete things--or undelete them. Anyone can add things to Category:Candidates for deletion, but only admins can act on it.

Help[]

When someone new to the wiki makes an edit and gets an automated welcome message, the message comes as if it's from one of the admins. The new user replies, that admin gets it. So admins are on the front line of helping newbies figure out what they're doing.

Unofficial[]

If there aren't vandals running around or major changes being made, usually an admin will just be doing the same things as any other editors. But anyone with the ADMIN next to their name is still going to be assumed as a special representative of the wiki, so it's best to set a good example.

Becoming an Admin[]

The new admins are usually chosen through auditions, which are held upon decision of current administrators. Candidates fill in an aplication form bofore the deadline and then they await the results. Both user contribution and behavior in the community are taken into consideration. In some cases the auditionees may become content moderators instead with the hopes of being promoted to admins later on.

The older version of the auditions involved public opinion (of users who weren't administrator), however, this part was dropped due to very few to no users taking this chance to share their thoughts. There have been other methods used in the past such as emergency adminhood by Wikia overlords when none was active, or admin election.
