Becoming an interface administrator

Main article: Requests for rights

Below are some questions to help you decide whether or not you need to be an interface administrator.

  • 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?
  • Do you understand CSS and JS well?
  • Do you actually want to change or maintain the interface?

To apply, follow the requests for adminship process, with the exception that you are asking to be an interface administrator instead of an administrator. Be advised that administrator and interface administrator are independent roles; a user with one role does not necessarily need to have the other role.


When Inkipedia started, there was no interface administrator role, and interface permissions were included with administrator rights. In 2019, MediaWiki 1.32 removed interface permissions from the administrator role and created the separate interface administrator role. MediaWiki did this for security reasons. While Inkipedia staff could have merged the roles in the wiki's configuration settings to keep things the same, Inkipedia staff ultimately decided to go along with MediaWiki's decision, creating the interface administrator role.


Main article: Demotion

A user with rights can be demoted through Inkipedia's democratic demotion request process.

Current interface admins
