It is a widely accepted standard that should normally be followed by all editors. Discuss potential changes unless the edit is minor.

Rollback

Esteban This user has rollback rights on Suite Life Wiki.

Rollback, the easier and faster method of undoing edits, is granted automatically to all Sysops. It is also an ability that can be granted to users to make undoing vandalism and edits by problem users easier. On The Suite Life Wiki, rollback users are generally trusted users who are experienced and are capable of helping the admins with vandalism. A list of Autoconfirmed users with rollback powers can be seen here. It can be applied for on Project:Requests for Rollback.


Administrators

Welcome This user is an administrator of Suite Life Wiki.

Administrators are The Suite Life Wiki editors who have been entrusted with access to restricted technical features ("tools") which help with maintenance. They are basically a small set of editors the wiki considers to be highly trustworthy, mature and responsible, able to lead by example.

Because administrators are expected to be experienced members of the community, those seeking help will often turn to an administrator for advice and information. When the communal feeling may be unclear, administrators may help provide a thoughtful voice in some kinds of consensus. However, admins are not a smaller, "more powerful" subset of the community, and content and policy decisions are the responsibility of the entire community.

Becoming an Administrator

Main article Project:Requests for Adminship

Rollback users who distinguish themselves over a period of time may be nominated for adminship when a position is open. This occurs infrequently, as it is agreed upon that the wiki will not have more than five administrators at one time.

A user may not be an administrator and a fanonadmin at the same time. Becoming one means renouncing the other. This is to ensure balance on the wiki.

Being an Administrator

Abilities

  • Delete pages, page histories, files etc.
  • Rename files.
  • Lock (protect) a page so it cannot be edited or renamed by users without admin 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.

Duties

As part of adminship, admins are regularly expected to:

  • Delete pages that the community has decided are unwanted, including
    • Pages that are obvious spam/vandalism
    • Pages marked with a {{delete}} tag if appropriate
    • Pages that the community has decided are unneeeded through Votes for Deletion.
  • Protect pages that meet the criteria on Project:Protection Policy
  • Block users that meet the criteria on Project:Blocking Policy

Code of Conduct

Admins are reliable contributors who have been entrusted with the means to maintain the overall quality of the site. With this in mind:

  • Admins have no right to authority over the content and policies of the wiki. The admins' authority is as large as the community would like it to be.
  • Admins do however have authority over behavioural problems such as vandalism or intimidation, hence the ability to block and delete.
  • Admins 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 a forum discussion

Inactivity

Admins should stay active to be able to assist the wiki, who has entrusted them with additional user rights.

  • Admins may always alert the community to a leave of absence by using Template:Inactive and changing their status to inactive. Leaves of absense may be for any length up to three months.
  • When an admin is inactive for two weeks without explanation, they will be marked inactive on Template:Administrators
  • If the admin does not edit for three months without explanation, it will be assumed that they have left the wiki and the admin will be desysopped. If an admin does not return from a leave of absence, they will be desysopped three months after the leave of absense was supposed to finish.

Bureaucrats

Mrtipton This user is a bureaucrat of Suite LIfe Wiki.

Bureaucrats are the highest tier of The Suite Life Wiki users, with the additional ability of being able to change user rights. In all other respects, bureaucrats are simply adminstrators.

Becoming a Bureaucrat

Main Article:Project:Requests for Bureaucratship

Bureaucratship can only be granted by another bureaucrat. The Suite Life Wiki currently has one active bureaucrat. Others can be be made through a voting procedure at Project:Requests for Bureaucratship. The candidate, usually an experienced and trusted admin, must be nominated by another user.

Being a Bureaucrat

Every policy that applies to admins also applies to bureaucrats, as bureaucrats are simply a subset of admins, with only a few additional abilities and responsibilities.

Additional Abilities

In addition to being an administrator, bureaucrats also have:

Additional Duties

Bureaucrats oversee and supervise all requests for user rights, and carry out the community's decision (defined as a two-thirds supermajority at least) in the case of requests for adminship or requests for bureaucratship.

Bureaucrats also must at their discretion accept or decline user requests for rollback. This is done according to their judgement, though the wider community can also have input into this decision by asking the requesting user questions about whether they need and deserve rolback.
