Asura's Wrath Wiki

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 numerous additional functions.

Administrators[]

The date shown is the date from when these users were granted Admninistrator or Bureaucrat rights.

  • MWAsura - Bureaucrat and Administrator/Sysop - Active - August 5, 2021 - [[1]]
  • Consus, the Erudite God - Bureaucrat and Administrator/Sysop - Inactive - July 7th, 2015 - [[2]]
  • Xperia - Bureaucrat and Administrator/Sysop - Inactive - February 16th, 2013 - [[3]]
  • MOH996 - Founder, Bureaucrat and Administrator/Sysop - Inactive - [[4]]

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 Administrator rights or Autoconfirmed status.
  • Blocking IP addresses or user names from editing; and very quick "rollback" of undesirable edits.
  • Editing the interface by changing system messages and skins.

Bureaucrats[]

Bureaucrats are one level above Administrators. Bureaucrats have the ability to manipulate user rights (both grant and remove), as well as block and unblock users. A Bureaucrat can make other users into Bureaucrats or/and Administrators on the wiki.

Bureaucrats can also give users the ability to "rollback" edits not made in good faith.

Staff[]

Wikia staff members have full access to all Wikia. They will be shown in Special:Listusers/staff on any wiki. Please use Special:Contact to contact Wikia staff.

Who are this wiki's administrators?[]

The "founder" of a wiki, the person who first requested it, is given administrator access automatically. Founders are also given bureaucrat access so they can make any other user on their wiki an administrator or bureaucrat. For a complete list of users with administrator access, see Special:Listusers/sysop.

You may also wish to list them on this page.

How do I use administrator powers?[]

See Help:Administrators' how-to guide for a guide on using admin functions.

Becoming an administrator[]

For you to become an administrator, someone with bureaucrat access must make you one. On larger Wikia, there will usually be a community page for requests, with a page name such as "Asura's Wrath Wiki:Requests for adminship". On a smaller wiki, you may simply ask on the community portal or Forum, or ask a bureaucrat directly on his or her talk page.

If there are no active bureaucrats, use the "Requests for adminship" page to nominate users to become admins or bureaucrats. Once a community decision has been reached (or if there is no active community to debate the decision), please leave a message at the wiki adoption requests page and Wikia Staff can provide the rights.

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 Wikia community.
