Rollback Edit

Rollback, the easier and faster method of undoing edits, is granted automatically to all Sysops and Bureaucrats. It is also an ability that can be granted to users to make undoing vandalism and edits by problem users easier. On Code Geass Wiki, rollback users are generally trusted users who are experienced and are capable of helping the admins with vandalism.

A list of Autoconfirmed users with rollback powers can be seen here. It can be applied for on Code Geass Wiki:Requests for Rollback.

Rollback rights commonly reserved for those ascribed as being members of the Policy & Standards Committee.

Administrators Edit

Administrators are Code Geass Wiki editors who have been entrusted with access to restricted technical features ("tools") which help with maintenance. They are basically a small set of editors the wiki considers to be highly trustworthy, mature and responsible, able to lead by example.

Because administrators are expected to be experienced members of the community, those seeking help will often turn to an administrator for advice and information. When the communal feeling may be unclear, administrators may help provide a thoughtful voice in some kinds of consensus.

Becoming an Administrator Edit

Main article: Code Geass Wiki:Requests for Adminship

Being an Administrator Edit

Abilities Edit

  • Delete pages, page histories, files etc.
  • Rename files.
  • Lock (protect) a page so it cannot be edited or renamed by users without admin rights.
  • Block an IP address or user name from editing.
  • Revert bad edits more easily using a "rollback" link.
  • Edit the MediaWiki namespace to make changes to the interface.

Duties Edit

As part of adminship, admins are regularly expected to:

  • Delete pages that the they or community have decided are unwanted, including
    • Pages that are obvious spam/vandalism
    • Pages marked with a {{delete}} tag if appropriate
    • Pages that have been decided are unneeded.
  • Protect pages that meet the criteria on Code Geass Wiki:Protection Policy
  • Block users that meet the criteria on Code Geass Wiki:Blocking Policy

Code of Conduct Edit

Administrators are reliable contributors who have been entrusted with the means to maintain the overall quality of the site. With this in mind:

  • Administrators have the duty to create policies and guidelines that contribute to the enhancement of the site. This authority is only within the confines of the betterment of the wiki site. (Subject to debate if content or policy doesn't benefit the wiki).
  • Administrators do however have authority over behavioral problems such as vandalism or intimidation and inappropriate content, hence the ability to block and delete.
  • Administrators have authority to answer blatant disregard over the guidelines and policies of the wiki, hence the ability to block, revert, delete.
  • Administrators cannot shut out the opinions of others. But can revert and delete crack theories.

Inactivity Edit

Administrators should stay active to be able to assist the wiki, who has entrusted them with additional user rights.

  • Administrators may always alert the community to a leave of absence by using Template:Inactive and changing their status to inactive. Leaves of absence may be for any length up to three months.
  • When an administrator is inactive for two weeks without explanation, they will be marked inactive on Template:Administrators.
  • If the administrator does not edit for three to six months without explanation, it will be assumed that they have left the wiki and the administrator will be demoted. If an administrator does not return from a leave of absence, they will be demoted three months after the leave of absence was supposed to finish.

Current Administrators Edit

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.

Administrator abilities Edit

These additional functions are:

  • Deleting and undeleting pages, page histories, and uploaded files.
  • Locking (protecting) a page so it cannot 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. However, he or she is not currently able to remove admin access from any user; please contact one of the community staff if you need that done.

Some Wikia staff members have full access to all Wikia. They will be shown in Special:Listusers/staff on any wiki. Wikia janitors have limited administrator access to all Wikia for cleanup purposes. These users will be shown on Special:Listusers/janitor on any Wikia. Please see the Central Wikia contact page for details on how to contact Wikia staff.

Who are this wiki's administrators? Edit

The "founder" of a wiki, the person who first requested it, is given administrator access automatically. Founders are also given bureaucrat access so they can make any other user on their wiki an administrator or bureaucrat.

You may also wish to list them on this page.

List of SysopsEdit

This list contains all users with administrative rights, including those that are active and not active.

How do I use administrator powers? Edit

See the administrators' how-to guide for a guide on using admin functions.

Becoming an administrator Edit

For you to become an administrator, someone with bureaucrat access must make you one. On larger Wikia, there will usually be a community page for requests, with a page name such as "Code Geass Wiki:Requests for Adminship". On a smaller wiki, you may simply ask on the community portal or Forum, or ask a bureaucrat directly on his or her talk page.

If there are no active bureaucrats and you wish to become an administrator, please contact the community staff on the Central Wikia.

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.

Bureaucrats Edit

Bureaucrats are the highest tier of Code Geass Wiki users, with the additional ability of being able to change user rights. In all other respects, bureaucrats are simply administrators.

Becoming a Bureaucrat Edit

Bureaucratship can only be granted by another bureaucrat. Code Geass Wiki currently has two active bureaucrats.

Being a Bureaucrat Edit

Every policy that applies to admins also applies to bureaucrats, as bureaucrats are simply a subset of admins, with only a few additional abilities and responsibilities.

Additional Abilities Edit

In addition to being an administrator, bureaucrats also have:

Additional Duties Edit

Bureaucrats oversee and supervise all requests for user rights, and carry out the decision in the case of requests for adminship.

Bureaucrats also must at their discretion accept or decline user requests for rollback. This is done according to their judgement.

Inactivity Edit

Bureaucrats should stay active to be able to promote users to the groups that they require to assist the wiki in the best possible way. As they are administrators, they are subject to the same inactivity regulations as administrators.
