FANDOM


Administrators, also known as System Operators (Sysops for short), are users who have proved themselves to be a very reliable editor of the wiki and have worked their way up to become an administrator. They are usually the most reliable members of the community and can be contacted with queries. They have the power to delete pages and ban users. The purpose of an administrator is to keep peace on the wiki and to keep vandalism at bay.

Administrators can also edit the pages that make up the wiki, such as the sidebar, site notices, MediaWiki pages, and design pages (e.g. js and CSS pages).

Becoming an admin

In general, when we are promoting, there are four questions we ask ourselves:

  1. Do we need any new staff? Admins, only promote when you feel like the admins here have too much stuff on their hands, and need help. Before promoting, multiple admins have to agree on the promotion.
  2. Has the person being promoted been appropriate? Dream Fiction Wiki users must have a good record before promotion. This means that they must have zero to just a few violations of the Rules of Conduct to be promoted. The Rules of Conduct also apply on other wikis if a user is to be promoted.
  3. Has the person worked hard enough on our wiki? Users should only be promoted after a certain number of edits (500 for chat moderator, 1,000 for administrator, and 2,000 for bureaucrat; Please note that this is likely change in the future) Additionally, users must be active in the chat to be a chat moderator, or active on the forums to be a moderator.
  4. Will the person stay committed? This is generally decided on how active the user is. Multiple edits per day are the goal, although sometimes there may be exceptions.

All users should be asked for permission before promotion. Additionally, users may be demoted for violating the Community Guidelines. If a staff member wishes to terminate their status, they may go to their User Rights Management and demote themselves.
