FANDOM


Members of the local[1] Administrator user-group are able exercise all local permissions offered by our Wiki, excepting only the ability to manipulate certain user-groups (which falls under the purview of Bureaucrats). Colloquially this group is referred to as “Full Administrators,” because the Rollback & Content Moderator groups both collectively possess most of the permissions Full Administrators do, & on this Wiki they operate as Code Administrators & Community Administrators respectively.

It should also be noted that Full Administrators are regarded by FANDOM Staff to be leaders of a given Wiki, & thus are the only ones able to request that certain extensions or other custom changes be enabled for a Wiki by FANDOM Staff. They are also the the users first approached by FANDOM Staff when FANDOM has a given proposal they would like to use a Wiki for, such as with the inclusion of Featured Videos. Additionally, Full Administrators show in several lists by default, such as in Special:Community & Special:ListAdmins.

Footnotes

  1. Local user-groups only effect one Wiki. An Administrator on this Wiki will not be an Administrator on any other Wiki unless they are promoted separately.
  2. Contains statistics, a panel full of very basic moderation tools, & an advanced panel full of roughly 100 Special Pages used for moderation, analytics reports, & cleanup.
  3. Allows for easy changing of a Wiki’s aesthetics.
  4. Views a list of a given user’s deleted contributions which would be invisible otherwise.
  5. Allows pages from other MediaWiki projects to be imported as pages here, including their file histories.
  6. This allows almost total control over how the Wiki looks aesthetically, via CSS, in addition to how it functions, via JavaScript & general settings.
  7. “Articles” refers to pages within the Main, Fanon, Tale of Diep, Category, Project, Help, Template, Module, Blog, & User namespaces, in addition to their associate Talk namespaces.
