Different users have access to different functions of the site. While anyone can do most things on the site, including reading and editing, Staff such as administrators can access a few additional functions.
FANDOM staff members have full access to all FANDOM. They will be shown in Special:Listusers/staff on any wiki. Keep in mind that nobody, even the Bureaucrats on this wiki, can give someone this user right. Please use Special:Contact to contact FANDOM staff.
Owners of the wiki who manage the functioning of the wiki, including choosing new staff, important administrative tasks, etc. All executive decisions are taken by them. This position has very exclusive privileges in that, while they are still subject to most rules on the wiki, some rules don’t apply. However, obtaining this position is extremely difficult.
Administrators take care of the wiki's users and prevent harassment, spam, etc. Administrators can ban users, edit CSS and JS, protect and lock pages, and carry out important administrative tasks. Admins should not use their Admin 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. Admin 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. See Help:Administrators' how-to guide for a guide on using admin functions.
Content Moderators are responsible for deleting unneeded pages, protecting pages prone to vandalism, and undoing strings of bad edits. It is a rank which is very exclusive and specialized, due to the availability of many administrator tools.
Discussions Moderator (Discussions Mod + Chat Mod)
Discussion Moderators look after issues regarding the forums and threads, including highlighting threads, managing boards, closing threads, moderating chat, etc.
Rollbacks are responsible for undoing strings of bad edits.
Who are this wiki's Bureaucrats/Admins?
The "Founder" of a wiki, the person who first requested it, is given Admin access automatically. Founders are also given Bureaucrat access so they can make any other user on their wiki an Admin or Bureaucrat. On this wiki, however, ever since the adoption made by Netherbolt, the original founders (Jmarsh97) Bureaucrat and Admin User Rights have been removed, as well as all other peoples Bureaucrat and Admin User Rights. Jmarsh97 is still recognized as the Founder of this wiki, even though the "Founder Label" has been removed from their user page.
For you to become any of these, someone with Bureaucrat access must make you one. On this wiki, go to "Forum:User Rights Requests" to request a user right. All votes will take place on the Voting Page. Be sure you also meet the Requirements before requesting.
