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 is not 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 administrator should not be considered "in charge". The ideal admin is simply someone who is trusted to have a few extra buttons and to use them for the benefit of the wiki. Remember, being an administrator is '''no big deal'''.

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

Administrator abilitiesEdit

These additional functions are:

  • Deleting and undeleting pages, page histories, and uploaded files.
  • Locking (protecting) a page so it cannot be edited or renamed by users without admin rights.
  • 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. However, he or she is not currently able to remove bureaucrat access from any other user; please contact one of the community staff if you need that done.

Some Wikia staff members have full access to all Wikia. They will be shown in Special:Listusers/staff on any wiki. Helpers have limited administrator access to all Wikia for cleanup purposes. These users will be shown on Special:Listusers/helper on any Wikia. Please see the Central Wikia contact page for details on how to contact Wikia staff.

How do I use administrator powers?Edit

See the administrators' how-to guide for a guide on using admin functions.

Becoming an administratorEdit

If you would like to become an administrator, please do so at Requests for User Rights.

How do admins grant rollback or admin rights?Edit

See User rights management.

What can administrators not do?Edit

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 is not 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 administrator should not be considered "in charge". The ideal admin is simply someone who is trusted to have a few extra buttons and to use them for the benefit of the wiki. Remember, being an administrator is no big deal.
