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.
- Delete and undelete pages, page histories, and uploaded files.
- Protect a page so it cannot be edited or renamed by users without admin rights or autoconfirmed status.
- Block IP addresses or user names from editing; and very quickly "rollback" undesirable edits.
A bureaucrat can make other users into bureaucrats or administrators on their own wiki. Bureaucrats can also give users the ability to rollback edits, without giving full admin status.
This Wiki's AdministratorsEdit
The "founder" of a wiki, the person who first requested it, is given administrator access automatically. Founders are also given bureaucrat access so they can make any other user on their wiki an administrator or bureaucrat. This is our complete catalog of admin rights.

Becoming an AdministratorEdit
For you to become an administrator, someone with bureaucrat access must make you one. On our wiki, the appropriate manner to do so (although informal) is either to leave a message with justification on a bureaucrat's wall; or in some cases, leave a similar message on the forum. In general, the bureaucrats you should contact on this wiki are Marcello27 or Myotragus (Myotragus is generally more active). In other cases, a bureaucrat may make someone an admin without a request if it seems reasonable they should become an admin.
If there are no active bureaucrats (the qualification being 60 days of inactivity), take a democratic vote in order to decide who will become an admin and/or bureaucrat. Once a community decision has been reached (or if there is no active community to debate the decision), please leave a message at the wiki adoption requests page and Wikia Staff can provide the rights.
