About administrators

Administrators are experienced and trusted members of the Sly Cooper Wiki community who have access to restricted technical features ("tools") which help with maintenance. They are also useful as moderators in community discussion and interaction.

Those seeking help can turn to an administrator for advice and information. However, administrators are not a smaller, "more powerful" subset of users, and content and policy decisions are the responsibility of the entire community.

Additional abilities

  • Delete pages, page histories, files etc.
  • Rename files (these are mainly images and videos).
  • Lock (protect) a page so it cannot be edited or renamed by users without administrator rights.
  • Block an IP address or user name from editing.
  • Revert bad edits more easily using a "rollback" link.
  • Edit the MediaWiki namespace to make changes to the interface.

Administrator tasks

As part of adminship, administrators are expected to use their abilities where it is considered necessary.

Administrator conduct

Administrators have been entrusted with the means to maintain the overall quality of the site. With this in mind:

  • Administrators have no right to authority over the content and policies of the wiki. The administrators' authority is as large as the community would like it to be.
  • Administrators are, however, responsible for addressing disruption on the wiki by other users, including breaches of civility.
  • Administrators do not own the site. They cannot shut out the opinions of others.
  • Abuse of administrator privileges may result in a removal of user rights after community discussion.

Inactivity

In the event that an administrator enter into a protracted absence from the wiki, some form of explanation, be it even a simple "I'm taking a break" or {{Inactive}} template, is desired. In the absence of any explanation, if an administrator does not edit or use admin tools for four months or more, the following steps are to be taken:

Length of absence 4 months' absence 5 months' absence 6 months' absence
Action taken Attempts to communicate will be made Warning that removal will occur at 6 months Bureaucrat will remove sysops

Likewise, in order to maintain their sysop rights administrators are required to make at least 50 mainspace edits in any six month span, excepting prior explanation of inactivity.

Note that these rules also apply to bureaucrats and users with rollback.

Becoming an administrator

If you would like sysop access, and you are willing to take on a little more responsibility in the Sly Cooper Wiki community, add your name to Requests for adminship according to the guidelines mentioned there, and a voting will take place by fellow editors in order to determine if you should become an administrator.
