What is an administrator? What is a sysop?

Two words for the same thing. An administrator is simply a Modern Wikia user who can access the few restricted Modern Wikia software functions: deleting articles and uploaded files, protecting and unprotecting pages, and blocking and unblocking users or IP addresses. The software internally uses the string "sysop" to flag their accounts, perhaps one reason that term is used. "Sysop" is simply a shortened term for system operator. They tend to be friendly folks who are willing to help you, if you post on their "talk page".
