FANDOM



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.

As a good sized wiki with a large community and a sizable amount of articles, it is only reasonable that the Avatar Wiki would have an administration. Like all administration, it consists of devoted members who have proven themselves to be of high quality and devotion to the site. These users work with the standard users and members to make the Avatar Wiki Awesome!

Administrator abilitiesEdit

These additional functions include:

  • Deleting and undeleting pages, page histories, and uploaded files.
  • Locking (protecting) a page so it cannot be edited or renamed by users without admin rights or autoconfirmed status.
  • Blocking IP addresses or user names from editing; and very quick "rollback" of undesirable edits not made in good faith.
  • Editing the interface by changing system messages and skins.

Bureaucrat abilitiesEdit

These additional functions include:

  • Managing User Rights such as promoting and demoting other users into bureaucrats, administrators, chat moderators, and rollback on their own wiki. Note that bureaucrats can only be demoted by the Staff or by one's self.
  • Bureaucrats can also give users the ability to "rollback" edits

Rollback abilitiesEdit

These additional functions include:

  • A very quick "rollback" of undesirable edits not made in good faith.

Chat moderator abilitiesEdit

These additional functions include:

  • Ability to Kick users out of Chat.
  • Ability to ban users that violate chat rules.

StaffEdit

Wikia staff members have full access to all Wikia. Please use Special:Contact to contact Wikia staff.

How do I use administrator powers? Edit

See Help:Administrators' how-to guide for a guide on using admin functions.

Becoming an administrator Edit

Not everyone can become an admin. Please understand that this wiki only needs enough admins at any given time to handle basic administrative tasks such as deleting articles and blocking disruptive users.

Users wishing to become an admin should meet all of the following requirements:

  • Must have at least 2000 Main Space edits and have been active on Avatar Wiki for over a 1 week.
  • Must be nominated on the Nominations for Rights page by another user with support from at least 2 other admins and a majority of the bureaucrats.

Users wishing to become an admin should show these characteristics:

  • Technical skills and knowledge of MediaWiki and the Adventure

Time Wiki including basic HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. They should know how to delete and protect pages, block members, and monitor edits on the

wiki.
  • Dedication and loyalty to the wiki. They should make positive contributions to the wiki and should be regularly active.
  • Knowledge of happenings and events on the wiki. One should

understand and practice the policies of the wiki and how to approach different situations based upon how the Adventure Time Wiki works.

  • Respectful and intelligent personality. One should respect

others and their rights while also using their abilities to be helpful and not harmful. One should not abuse their powers or take advantage of non-admins simply because of their status. They should be kind but also stern, willing to block users and do so strictly out of penalties for violating the rules, not personal feelings.

Becoming a bureaucrat Edit

For becoming a bureaucrat, it takes much experience and devotion as well as an admin position. If one wishes to become a bureaucrat, please consult an admin.

Users wishing to become a bureaucrat should meet all of the following requirements:

  • Must be actively contributing to the Main Space.
  • Have a history of contributing to the decisions of user rights.
  • Must be nominated on the Nominations for Rights page by another admin with support from at least 2 bureaucrats.

Users wishing to become a bureaucrat should show these characteristics in a addition to the administrator characteristics:

  • Be able to collaborate with the community in decision-making.
  • Have been an admin on the wiki long enough to know and have experience with the procedures of being an administrator.

Do take into account that an admin or bureaucrat who is inactive for at least a year without notice is expected to step down. Bureaucrats that have been inactive for at least two years can be demoted by Wikia.

Receiving rollback rights Edit

Users wishing to receive rollback rights should meet all of the following requirements:

  • Be a good Main Space editor with a good quantity of quality edits.
  • Have a history of reverting edits appropriately.
  • Must be nominated on the Nominations for Rights page by another user with support from at least 1 bureaucrat.

Becoming a chat moderator Edit

Users wishing to become a chat moderator should meet all of the following requirements:

  • Be very active on the wiki's chat.
  • Editing is encouraged, but is not mandatory.
  • Make reports of misbehavior when mods are not online.
  • Have a strong history of behaving and adhering to the policies.
  • Have knowledge of Chat Rules.
  • Must be nominated on the Nominations for Rights page by another user with support from at least 1 administrator.

What can administrators not do? Edit

Administrators including other users with additional rights should not abuse their powers for their own personal gain; 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.
