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

|MuBiU||Founder, Bureaucrat, Administrator||28 February 2015 - 09 February 2016|
If you ever need help or need to contact an admin, feel free to message Sebastian. I am ready and available to help you answer any questions. Feel free to contact me for site suggestions or constructive criticism!
These additional functions include:
- Deleting and undeleting pages, page histories, and uploaded files.
- Locking/protecting pages so they cannot be edited or renamed by users without admin 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.
A Bureaucrat can make other users into bureaucrats or administrators on their own wiki. Bureaucrats can also give users the ability to "rollback" edits not made in good faith.
Who Are The Administrators On This Wiki?
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.
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 this Wikia, Read through the requirements page, "Requests For Administrator Rights" and follow the instructions at the bottom, if you qualify. Or you can ask a bureaucrat directly on his/her talk page.
If there are no active bureaucrats, create a blog post with the title "Requests For Adminship" 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.
- To apply for admin rights... Go here, and leave a message, containing the information required in the Requests For Administrator Rights page.
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.
