Bureaucrat super powers

A bureaucrat can make other users into bureaucrats or administrators on their own wiki. But they CANNOT TAKE BUREAUCRAT AWAY! So be careful... OR ELSE YOU WILL DIE!

Bureaucrats can also give users the ability to "rollback" edits not made in good faith, as well as appoint new Content Moderators, Discussions Moderators, and Chat Moderators.

Becoming an administrator

For you to become an administrator or have any kind of Promotion, someone with bureaucrat access must make you one. You can usually go to their talk page and request it there. Remember that administrators are content moderators who can block people (and who also have discussions moderator rights but that's not important.)

It's standard procedure when a new Administrator, Chat Moderator, Content Moderator, or Discussions Moderator, is added their name gets the appropriate color added in MediaWiki:Wikia.css. Bureaucrats additionally can have any color they want, but by default they're given the Administrator color. However nothing's stopping Administrators from adding custom colors to their name, however we ask for this to only be reserved for bureaucrats.

If there are no active bureaucrats, use the "Requests for adminship" page to nominate users to become admins or bureaucrats. 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. THEN THATS TOO BAD!

Staff

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 this wiki's administrators?

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.

What can administrators not do?

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 UnAnything. So in other words, if someone edits a page and adds something you don't like, TOUGH LUCK!

I'm an administrator, and I'd wish not to have a special name

That's okay, just ask an Administrator or Bureaucrat who knows css to get rid of it.
