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 like these:

  • Deleting and undeleting pages and page histories. Administrators can also delete uploaded files, but cannot undelete them.
  • Locking (protecting) a page so it can not be edited or renamed by users without admin rights.
  • Blocking IP addresses or user names from editing; and very quick "rollback" of undesirable edits.
  • Editing the interface by changing system messages and skins.

A bureaucrat can make other users into bureaucrats or administrators on their own wiki. They are not currently able to remove admin access from any user. Please contact one of the community staff if you need this done.

Some Wikia staff members have full access to all Wikia. They will be shown in Special:Listusers/staff on any wiki. Please see the Wikia contact page for details on how to contact Wikia staff.

Who are this wiki's administrators?

Users who are trusted by the community and have made a substantial number of edits over a period of time are granted the position of an administrator. Below is a list of administrators, you can also look at this page; Special:Listadmins.

How do I use administrator powers?

See the administrators' how-to guide for a guide on using admin functions.

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 Wikia community.

Gaining User Rights

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 at Sonic News Network:Requests for User Rights. Other users can comment on whether or not they approve your request. After two weeks, you should inform the current bureaucrats so they can assess the comments and decide whether or not to give you admin rights.
