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.
- 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.
The current active Admins of Reptipedia are:
Becoming an administratorEdit
For you to become an administrator, someone with bureaucrat access must make you one. This done by community consensus.
Administrative tool misuseEdit
Administrators must not use their administrator tools 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 use 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. An admin is not a "senior" user they are just someone who is trusted to have a few extra buttons and to use them for the benefit of the Wikia community. If you feel an administrator has misused his or her access please bring it to a bureaucrats attention.
