Behavior policyAdministratorsAboutAffiliates

Administrators are an advanced form of user with several extra abilities. Administrators are promoted from a regular user by a bureaucrat and from then on they police through edits, weeding out the bad ones. While administrators should be contacted about wiki questions, please do not contact the Abuse filter administrator; it is only a Media Wiki extension.

Administrator Abilities

Administrators have three major abilities that regular users do not have; block, delete and protect. Blocking is the act of removing a user's power to edit pages and banning them from doing anything for a set amount of time as punishment for breaking the rules. Administrators can also unblock users if the block was unfair. Deleting is taking away an article from the wiki because it was not satisfactory or because it was made as a vandalism article, restoration is another administrator ability and brings back deleted articles.

Protection is the third major administrator ability and it allows an administrator to change the protection level of a page - everybody, logged-in users only or administrators only. An administrator would protect an article if the article is not for the general public to edit or if it is a target of much vandalism. Other administrator abilities include rollbacking, or undoing multiple edits, editing the mediawiki interface and renaming users.

Current Administrators

There are several current administrators on the WikiBound; you can view a full list of them at this link.

How to Become an Administrator

Becoming an Administrator requires a lot of dedicated work on the articles on the WikiBound and a vast knowledge of wikicoding. Administrators must know you are trustworthy and able to help the wiki out before giving you the ability to block other users. The bureaucrats will select the administrators out of the active users on the wiki, do not ask to be promoted - it will come in due time.

Who are the admins?

Below is a list of admins along with their position and username. Generally active admins are online regularly, so if you need to contact one they are the best ones to see.

While semi-active admins visit occasionally, they may not come on regularly to respond to any needs. However they may show up and take part on the wiki, and assist with any admin needs.

Admins on a hiatus or inactive admins rarely show up, or possibly not at all. Though admins on a hiatus may eventually return, inactive admins have not been online in a long time, and they will likely be unresponsive to any contact attempts.
