Introduction to AdministratorsEdit
Different users have access to different functions of the site. While anyone can do most things on the site, including reading and editing, administrators are trusted users that can access a few additional functions.
- Deleting and undeleting pages, uploaded images and page histories.
- Protecting a page so it can not be edited or moved by anonymous users (autoconfirmed protection) or non-admins (full/sysop protection).
- Blocking IP addresses or user names from editing; and quick reversion ("rollback") of undesirable edits.
- Editing the interface by changing system messages and skins (editing MediaWiki files).
These functions are solely for housekeeping for keeping Wikia wikis nice and tidy. The community does look to administrators to perform the essential chores that require the extra access administrators are entrusted with. However, otherwise, administrators are the same as other users, and are expected to be well-tempered in all respects.
Can I Become An Administrator?Edit
Administrators are selected on an as-needed basis only. As the Red vs. Blue Wiki grows, more administrators may be needed to assist in its operation.
