All Wikia contributors have access to read and contribute to this wiki. But, we also use special roles with advanced user rights on this wiki. This is in order to help prevent spam and vandalism. Below is a description of these rights with the users.
Jinxed Wiki Staff
Administrators also known as "admins" or "sysops") are trusted users, who are generally chosen by the community and also have access to the following tools:
- All privileges from the discussion moderator and content moderator groups.
- Delete and undelete pages, as well as delete images or files.
- Lock (protect) both a page and a file so it cannot be edited or renamed by users without adminship privileges.
- Block users who are vandalizing the wikia from editing, etc.
- Grant and revoke both the chat moderator and discussion moderator rights.
- Edit the wikia's skin and format.
- Edit whitelisted MediaWiki pages.
Bureaucrats are one level 'up' from administrators. Bureaucrats only have the ability to manipulate user rights, as well as block and unblock users, so this right is generally used in addition to the administrator group. (They are also called "Executive Administrators")
They have the ability to promote and revoke rollback, content moderator and administrator rights as well as appointing new bureaucrats. While they cannot directly revoke another user's bureaucrat status, they can revoke their own. Bureaucrats also have the ability to revoke a user's bot status in case the bot is malfunctioning, but community consensus is required for the addition of users's bot status.
A bureaucrat is identified by "Chief Advisor."
Admins are listed below:
