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.

Administrator abilities

These additional functions are:

  • 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.
  • Blocking IP addresses or user names from editing; and very quick "rollback" of undesirable edits.
  • Editing the interface by changing system messages and skins.

A bureaucrat can make other users into bureaucrats or administrators on their own wiki. However, he or she is not currently able to remove admin access from any user; please contact one of the community staff if you need that done.

Some Wikia staff members have full access to all Wikia. They will be shown in Special:Listusers/staff on any wiki. Wikia janitors have limited administrator access to all Wikia for cleanup purposes. These users will be shown on Special:Listusers/janitor on any Wikia. Please see the Central Wikia contact page for details on how to contact Wikia staff.

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. For a complete list of users with administrator access, see Special:Listusers/sysop.

Former

Other administrators

We are currently in the process of merging with four other wikis, therefore there is a good chance you will be seeing newly added material that are the hard works of their respective admins:

  • BlackRook from Septimus Heap Magyk Wiki (septimusheapmagyk.wikia.com) [Created on August 28, 2011]
  • DemiTitan from World of Septimus Heap Wiki (worldofseptimus.wikia.com) [Created on October 12, 2011]
  • StephanieWyvald from World of Septimus Heap Wiki (worldofseptimus.wikia.com) [Created on October 12, 2011]
  • Eragonthebestbettafish from Everything about Septimus Heap Wiki (everythingaboutseptimusheap.wikia.com) [Created on May 21, 2012]
  • Wiki guy awesome from Septimus Heap Wiki (septimus-heap.wikia.com) [Created on April 25, 2013]

However, as they both haven't been active for quite a long period, we are only listing them to homage their former contributions; if they were to become active once more, and participate on this wiki, they can contact the current fully active administrators to change their user group.

Status Description

Inactive
For whatever reason, these administrators haven't logged onto the wiki for an extended period of time.

How do I use administrator powers?

See the administrators' how-to guide for a guide on using admin functions.

Becoming an administrator

For you to become an administrator, someone with bureaucrat access must make you one. On larger Wikia, there will usually be a community page for requests, with a page name such as "Septimus Heap Wiki:Requests for adminship". On a smaller wiki, you may simply ask on the community portal or Forum, or ask a bureaucrat directly on his or her talk page.

If there are no active bureaucrats and you wish to become an administrator, please contact the community staff on the Central Wikia.

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 Wikia community.
