The Bureaucrat status is generally granted to senior members of well established editing communities. They have all of the permissions of an administrator, plus the ability to promote registered users to the administrator level. Users chosen to be Bureaucrats, have demonstrated over time their knowledge of how wikis work, their sensible and balanced judgment while interacting with members of the community, and their trustworthiness to not abuse their position.

Bureaucrats are expected to be the final mediator in user disputes when administrators are either unable to resolve a situation, or are personally involved in the dispute. Bureaucrats who are inactive for an extended period of time will lose their status.

For this page, Commander, Captain, Admiral, and Bureaucrats are all referred to simply as Bureaucrats.


Administrators (aka Sysops) are trusted members of established wiki communities who have been granted additional permissions. These permissions include the ability to delete and undelete pages and images, rollback rights (undoing edits by a single IP/User with a single click), and the ability to block users.

Administrator's edits should not carry more weight than any other editor's unless it is a correction based on policy, which should be noted in the edit summary. Administrators are expected to be available to the community through email, (the Email this user link from their userpage), and to be helpful to other members of the community while trying to accomplish community set goals on the wiki.

Administrators are expected to act as mediators in cases of user disputes, and are expected to act in a professional manner within the editing community. Administrators are encouraged to read the Administrators Guide.
