RuneScape:Administrators

From RuneScape Classic Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

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

These additional functions include:

  • 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 or autoconfirmed status.
  • Blocking IP addresses or user names from editing; and very quick "rollback" of undesirable edits.
  • Editing the interface by changing the various MediaWiki pages.

A list of admins and the date of their last edit may be found here.

Bureaucrat abilities

A bureaucrat can make other users into bureaucrats or administrators, after they have passed a successful Requests for adminship. The user group rollback may be given to trusted users that request it on a bureaucrat's talk page. A list of bureaucrats may be found at Special:Listusers/bureaucrat.

Becoming an administrator

For you to become an administrator, someone with bureaucrat access must make you one. On larger Wikis, there will usually be a community page for requests, with a page name such as "RuneScape:Requests for adminship".

What can administrators not do

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 Wiki community.
