Different users have access to different functions of the site. While anyone can do most things on the site, including reading and editing, administrators can access a few additional functions like these:
- Deleting and undeleting pages and page histories. Administrators can also delete uploaded files, but cannot undelete them.
- Locking (protecting) a page so it can not be edited or renamed by users without admin rights.
- Blocking IP addresses or user names from editing; and very quick "rollback" of undesirable edits.
- Editing the interface by changing system messages and skins.
A bureaucrat can make other users into bureaucrats or administrators on their own wiki. They are not currently able to remove admin access from any user. Please contact one of the community staff if you need this done.
Who are this wiki's administrators?Edit
Users who are trusted by the community and have made a substantial number of edits over a period of time are granted the position of an administrator. Below is a list of administrators, you can also look at this page; Special:Listadmins.

These users, along with the administrators listed above, can use the rollback ability, which allows them to undo multiple edits made by the same user.
These users, along with the administrators listed above, can use the chat moderator feature, which allows them to kickban users out of chat and add them to the "BannedFromChat" group, it also allows them to unban them from the chat.

How do I use administrator powers?Edit
See the administrators' how-to guide for a guide on using admin functions.
What can administrators not do?Edit
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 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.
Gaining User RightsEdit
If you have been editing this wiki for some time and have gained the trust of the community here, you may nominate yourself or someone else for adminship at Channel Wiki:Requests for User Rights. Other users can comment on whether or not they approve your request. After two weeks, you should inform the current bureaucrats or a staff member so they can assess the comments and decide whether or not to give you admin rights.
