Bureaucrats of Modern Wiki

Introduction to Bureaucrats

Different users have access to different functions of the site. While anyone can do most things on the site, including reading and editing, Bureaucrats are trusted users that can access a few additional functions.

  • Editing the interface by changing system messages and skins (editing MediaWiki files).
  • Keeping Rollback rights

These functions are solely for housekeeping for keeping Wikia wikis nice and tidy. The community does look to Bureaucrats to perform the essential chores that require the extra access Bureaucrats are entrusted with. However, otherwise, Bureaucrats are the same as other users, and are expected to be well-tempered in all respects.

Can I become an Bureaucrats?

Bureaucrats are selected on an as-needed basis only. As Modern Wikia grows, more bureaucrats may be needed to assist in its operation. Bureaucratic positions can be filled via requests for Bureaucratic needs.

What can Bureaucrats not do?

Bureaucrats 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. Bureaucratic 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. Bureaucrats should not be considered "in charge". The ideal Bureaucrat is a regular user who is trusted to have a few extra buttons and to use them for the benefit of the Modern Wikia.
