About administrators[edit source]
Administrators are experienced and trusted members of the Adventure Communist Wiki community who have access to restricted technical features ("tools") which help with maintenance. They are also useful as moderators in community discussion and interaction.
Those seeking help can turn to an administrator for advice and information. However, administrators are not a smaller, "more powerful" subset of users, and content and policy decisions are the responsibility of the entire community.
Additional abilities[edit source]
- Delete pages, page histories, files etc.
- Rename files (these are mainly images and videos).
- Lock (protect) a page so it cannot be edited or renamed by users without administrator 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.
Administrator tasks[edit source]
As part of adminship, administrators are expected to use their abilities where it is considered necessary. Administrators should also watch the (WIll add this later) whenever they can.
Administrator conduct[edit source]
Administrators have been entrusted with the means to maintain the overall quality of the site. With this in mind:
- Administrators have no right to authority over the content and policies of the wiki. The administrators' authority is as large as the community would like it to be.
- Administrators are, however, responsible for addressing disruption on the wiki by other users, including breaches of civility.
- Administrators do not own the site. They cannot shut out the opinions of others.
- Abuse of administrator privileges may result in the removal of user rights after community discussion.
Administrators should remain active to assist the wiki, having been entrusted with additional user rights by its community. As i am the only Admin, for now, i will add this later on.
Becoming an administrator[edit source]
Although there is only 1 administrator this number will eventually be limited when this wiki is up and running. However, when a position is open, rollback users or moderators who have distinguished themselves over a period of time may be nominated for administratorship.
