There are two kinds of users with additional rights in Wasteland Wiki - admins (also called sysops) and bureaucrats. Admin privileges include rolling back edits with just one click, deleting pages, protecting pages and banning users from the wiki. The only difference between administrators and bureaucrats is that bureaucrats can give and revoke other people's administrative powers.
For details, please see Help:User access levels.
For you to become an administrator, someone with bureaucrat access must make you one. Please note that additional powers is not a reward for good contributions nor a promotion to have more authority than other users. Simply put, an admin is a user who is being trusted with access to certain technical features to aid in maintenance. Not everybody who meets the requirements will automatically become an administrator; admins are appointed on a per-need basis.
The minimum requirements for becoming an administrator are:
- You have made at least 500 edits in the article, category or template namespace (i.e. talk page, blog and forum contributions do not count).
- You have been continuously active at this wiki for at least 3 months.
Making the request
- The request should be made to the currently active Bureaucrat, who will decide the matter at their discretion.
