FANDOM


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.


Administrators (also known as "admins" or "sysops") are trusted users who are generally chosen by the community.

Administrator abilities Edit

These additional functions include:

  • All privileges from the Discussions Moderator and Content Moderator groups.
  • Edit white-listed MediaWiki pages.
  • Editing the interface by changing system messages, skin and format.
  • Deleting and undeleting pages, page histories, and uploaded files.
  • Locking (protecting) a page so it cannot be edited or renamed by users without admin rights or autoconfirmed status.
  • Blocking IP addresses or users that are vandalizing the wiki from editing and other actions; and very quick "rollback" of undesirable edits
  • Grant and revoke both the Chat Moderator and Discussion Moderator rights.
  • Being an administrator makes the tag "Dark Knight" appear next to a user's name on their profile.
  • The administrator status can be removed by FANDOM Staff or by bureaucrats.

How do I use administrator powers? Edit

See Help:Administrators' how-to guide for a guide on using admin functions.

Status Description
Fully active These administrators log on frequently to edit and/or browse the wiki. They are the best users to contact.
Partially active These administrators don't log on all the time, though are still relatively frequent.
Away These administrators are currently away (such as on vacation, etc.), but will return shortly. It's unlikely they will edit or respond to messages, except for rare occasions.
Excused For whatever reason, these administrators aren't able to log on to the wiki for an extended period of time. Their inactivity has been excused due to unfortunate circumstances.
Retired Unfortunately, these users have stepped back from their administrative roles on the wiki. They will retain administrative privileges so long as they desire, and are welcome to resume involvement in the future if they so choose. We thank them for their service to our community.
