FANDOM


The Shapeshifter Wiki, like all communities on FANDOM, have roles. This article contains information on these roles. All users can edit the wiki but these roles give a little more control over the running of the wiki. This should give you an overview on the whole load of roles.

AdministratorsEdit

Admins are the basis of wikis, you can identify them by the gold badge on the top left corner of their profile picture on discussions posts and also by a badge on their main profile. These people aren't leaders of this wiki, but they are people who keep the wiki running and can also do a few extra things:

  • Deleting (and undeleting)
  • Changing a pages history by 'rollbacking'
  • Deleting files
  • Locking (protecting) a page so it cannot be edited by types of users.
  • Blocking people
  • Editing the hidden parts of the wiki that make it work

BureaucratsEdit

A bureaucrat are users who can make other users (and themselves) into roles on the wiki.

They can also rollback edits not made in good faith.

Staff Edit

Wikia staff members have full access to all Wikia. They will be shown in Special:Listusers/staff on any wiki. Please use Special:Contact to contact Wikia staff.

Who are the admins?Edit

For a complete list of admins, see Special:Listusers/sysop or you can find about them here: About this Wiki.

How do I use administrator powers? Edit

See Admins Guide for help.

Becoming an administrator Edit

For you to become an administrator, someone with bureaucrat access must make you one. Go to here. If there are no active ones, see wiki adoption requests page to adopt the wiki.

What administrators should not do? Edit

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.
