This page is for those who have an interest in nominating or becoming a part of this wiki's staff.


Positions

Administrator

Administrators (also known as "admins" or "sysops") are trusted users who are generally chosen by the community and also have access to the following rights:

  • All privileges of Discussions Moderator, Rollback and Content Moderator groups
  • Block users who are vandalizing the wiki from editing and other actions
  • Grant and revoke Discussion Moderator rights
  • Edit the community's skin and format
  • Edit whitelisted MediaWiki pages

Requirements:

  • Have at least 200 edits, a majority of which are in the main namespace, and are not blog or talk page comments. (see Special:Editcount, User contributions).
    • This requirement is not needed if you are an admin on another wiki. If applying, please list the wiki you have admin rights on.
  • Active presence on the wiki.
  • Professional and non-hostile disposition.

Bureaucrat

Bureaucrats are one level "up" from administrators. Bureaucrats only have the ability to manipulate user rights, as well as block and unblock users, so this right is generally used in addition to the administrator group.

They have the ability to promote and revoke rollback, Content Moderator and administrator rights as well as appointing new bureaucrats. While they cannot directly remove another user's bureaucrat status, they can remove their own.

Requirements:

  • Must be an admin.
  • Must have a friendly and trusting disposition on the wiki.


Content Moderator

Content Moderators are users who have additional tools available to moderate specific parts of the community. These tools are:

  • Deleting and moving files and protected pages
  • Undeleting pages and files
  • Rollback
  • Re-upload files
  • Protecting and unprotecting pages

Requirements:

  • Have at least 75 edits, a majority of which are in the main namespace, and are not blog or talk page comments. (see Special:Editcount, User contributions).
  • Considerable presence on the wiki.
  • Non-hostile disposition.

Discussions Moderator

Discussions Moderators are users who have additional tools available to manage conversations in various features across the community where users are having discussions. These tools are:

  • Moderating the Discussions feature
  • Removing and restoring threads and replies from any user.
  • Closing and reopening threads
  • Manage Forum boards, move threads from one board to another, and highlight and un-highlight threads.
  • Moderating chat
  • Deleting blog comments
  • Editing and deleting article comments

Requirements:

  • Being active in the discussions for the span at least two weeks.
  • Non-hostile disposition.

Rollback

Anyone can revert vandalism and bad-faith edits, but it takes a couple of clicks in the page history to get it done. Users with the "rollback" tool can undo bad edits with one click, by using the rollback link on diff pages, user contributions list, or the list of recent changes.

Note: It is important to note that Content Moderators and admins already have rollback rights by default. The right can be optional for a user to have rollback and admin combined, but it will not add extra speed and strength, even with slower internet connections. Users with rollback rights are just users who are not necessarily an admin.

Requirements:

  • Considerable presence on the wiki.
  • Non-hostile disposition.

Applying

If you wish to gain access to any position, leave a reply in the Current Nominations section of this page including what position you'd like and describe why you think you are deserving of these rights, and what you would do to improve the quality of this wiki if you obtained this status. You must also read through and understand the following:

  • The Rules
  • FANDOM's Terms Of Use
  • The descriptions and requirements of the positions above.

Voting Etiquette

In order to vote on nominations for user rights, you must be a registered user with more than five un-reverted edits. There are three sections for each nomination: Support, Oppose, and Comments.

  • Use a
  1. sign instead of a
  • to mark the votes so it is easy to see the number of votes.
  • The nominee should not vote for himself, but instead mark the initial section of the nomination as Accepted along with his signature. The nominee may make additional comments in the Comments section.
  • You may provide a rationale (reason) when supporting a nomination.
  • You must provide a rationale when objecting to a nomination. Any objection that clearly has no connection to this project or one that does not list a rationale can be considered invalid.
  • If you wish to remove your vote, please strikethrough it by surrounding it with <s></s>. This is so we can accurately track the voting, especially once it's archived.

  • Applying for position-Admin
  • Reason- This wiki seems to be vandalized every day, every hour, every single time, and i really want to help this wiki by doing something else other than "undo" or contacting an admin. I just like a good, functional wiki without trolls and people who think they're funny. Wiki is not just a place to get information and then leave, or to mess around, it's something serious. I want to help this wiki, i want to fix every problem, so i wish to be an admin so i can try to make this wiki better. And there's also the problem that most staff members of this wiki aren't very active, i will be very active, since i don't do anything else with my life other than sleeping and sitting in front of my computer.
