For a full list go here. This list was last updated July 19th, 2021. Remember when adding to the list go by alphabet.

Quick explanation

U wanna know what a bureaucrat/admin is? Lemme tell you: Some big cheese that bosses you around when you do bad things! Still don't get it? Fine, keep reading then......

An Administrator is the all-in-one package of what you know and love administrators to be, in the most literal sense they are duel moderators with the ability to block people and stuffs. They are highly trusted members of the community with the tools to revert spam and stop harassment, and prevent it.

Stuffs only an Administrator can do

  • Grant and revoke Discussions Moderator rights.
  • Edit the community's skin and format.
  • Edit white-listed MediaWiki pages.
  • Edit protected pages

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 ideally are people who can reboot the wiki in case something goes horribly wrong.

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. Bureaucrats are pretty much always also Administrators.

Content Moderators are users that are basically an Administrator lite. No blocking, and no forum moderation. Content moderators can edit fully protected pages, and I think protect them? (Not sure about that one.) They're good for removing the spam that's already there, but not preventing it. Preventing it is the job of the Administrator.

  • Editing and moving fully protected pages.
  • Deleting and UnDeleting pages and files.
  • Editing and moving protected files.
  • Rollback.
  • Rename files.
  • Protecting and UnProtecting pages.
  • Patrolling pages (nobody does that.)
  • Deleting article comments.

  • Discussions Moderators are the guys you can trust when discussions get out of hand, and can generally help answer your questions or redirect you to someone who can. Discussions moderators may not actually make pages, but are none the less helpful.

  • Removing and restoring threads and replies by any user. *Limitations may apply.
  • Closing and reopening threads.
  • Manage Forum boards, and move threads from one board to another.
  • Moderating chat.
  • Deleting blog comments.
  • Editing and deleting article comments.

  • Rollback are basically just normal users, but have a button they can press to undo all of someone's revisions.

    Normal names but with the special font of our staff are our Honourable Former Staff. They used to be staff, but have since had their user rights revoked in an honorable discharge. A thing to note is that if a user lost their rights by failing to perform their duties properly (see Incompetence), or otherwise have been dishonorably discharged, they will not be recognized as a "Honourable Former Staff" as it is a title of honor.

    If Bureaucrats were aces, then those aces are actually 1s and these are 11s. Fandom staff members have full access to all of Fandom, and can give or revoke bureaucrat rights, among other super things. They will be shown in Special:Listusers/staff on any Fandom wiki. Please use Special:Contact to contact Fandom staff.

    Becoming Powerful

    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. Limitations may apply.

    It's standard procedure when a new Bureaucrat, Administrator, Chat Moderator, Content Moderator, Discussions Moderator, or Rollback is added, it's a requirement their name gets added to the appropriate place in MediaWiki:Common.css.

    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 Fandom Staff can provide the rights. THEN THATS TOO BAD! But that won't happen any time soon, so don't worry.

    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 they prefer 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, BUDDY!
