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

===Moderators===

*[[User:Example]]
Moderators are users who are given the ability to "rollback" edits, which means that they can easily revert edits not made in [[w:Assume good faith|good faith]] - when there have been more edits made since.
 
   
== Becoming an Administrator or Moderator ==
+
== How do I use administrator powers? ==
For you to become an administrator, someone with bureaucrat access must make you one. If you want to become an administrator, send a message to the wiki bureaucrat asking for permission. You must also meet the requirements below.
+
See [[Help:Administrators' how-to guide]] for a guide on using admin functions.
   
*You must have edited the wiki for a full 3 months.
+
== Becoming an administrator ==
*You must have made 200 edits in the mainspace.
+
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 "[[{{ns:project}}:Requests for adminship]]". On a smaller wiki, you may simply ask on the community portal or [[Forum:Index|Forum]], or ask a bureaucrat directly on his or her talk page.
*You must have not vandalized any pages, or have been hostile to others.
 
   
If you vandalize anybody or are hostile to others '''after''' you have been granted admin/moderator rights, you will be revoked of your admin/mod powers and banned from the wiki. '''Also, if you are an admin/moderator and do not edit the wiki for 365 days, your rights can be removed.''' If this has happened, then you can become an admin again after another 200 more edits.
+
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 [[Wikia:Wikia:Adoption requests|wiki adoption requests page]] and Wikia Staff can provide the rights.
   
== What can Administrators '''NOT''' Do? ==
+
== 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 [[w:Assume good faith|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.
