General guidelines

  • Be involved in the community as part of the community. Participate, contribute, discuss, socialize.
  • Settle disputes in the talk pages through discussion.
  • Do general cleanup that ordinary contributors can't: renaming, deleting, and archiving.
  • See admins' how-to guide for more info.

Administrator and bureaucrat rights

Bestowing rights

  • Contributors to the wiki who have made significant contributions may be bestowed administrator rights following a discussion on the requests for adminship page.

Lapsing rights

  • The administrator or bureaucrat rights of a contributor may lapse and be removed if they have made less than ten contributions in the last 45 days. They may be bestowed again upon request.

Preventing abuse

Administrators and bureaucrats are tasked with preventing abuse while allowing contributors to function freely and maintain their privacy. Abuse may be:

  • Any violation of the Wikia Terms of Use. This includes vandalism, harassment, spam, and intimidating behavior.
  • Sexual conduct, excessive harsh language, or excessively violent content.
  • Inappropriate behavior.

What consists abuse is at the discretion of each administrator, however an administrator who is unwilling to cooperate with the community through discussion may lose their administrator or bureaucrat rights. Abuse may be prevented with the following measures:

Abuse filter

The abuse filter is an automated mechanism. Despite its name it is not only used for filtering abuse. It is extremely useful for preventing clear-cut abuse. Since its filters have a performance penalty on the wiki software, it should be used sparingly. Further information is found on MediaWiki. The abuse filter is a powerful and dangerous tool, please use it very carefully.

Page protection

Page protection should be used for high-traffic pages, high-use templates, policy pages, or pages with recent persistent vandalism. Protection should be used sparingly.

Other measures

There are many more measures for preventing abuse. In general, the more invasive the method, the less it should be used. ProtectSite, range blocks, and other measures that are invasive of privacy and/or extremely restrictive should generally be avoided.
