Administrators (also known as Admins or Sysops) are a group of experienced users who maintain the wiki through enforcing policies and the use of special functions given to them (see a list below). Given the amount of experience they have on the wiki, they are usually the best users to contact whenever you have a question.

Demotion

A user with rights can be demoted through a democratic process.

Becoming an administrator

It takes a lot of work and experience to become an administrator. Below are some questions to help you decide whether or not you are actually ready for adminship.

  • Are you online often?
  • Are you a good editor (with excellent use of the English language)?
  • Do you know intermediate-level wikicode (e.g. are you able to understand semi-complex wikicode by looking at it)?
  • Do you work well with other users?
  • Do you follow our policies?

Once you feel you are ready, and if requests for adminship are unlocked, two users must be willing to nominate you (one of which has to be a current admin). If your nomination is successful you will become a permanent admin. Good luck!
