Different users have access to different functions of the site. While anyone can do most things on the site, including reading and editing, administrators, or to give their more formal name, sysops, can access a few additional functions:
- Deleting and undeleting pages, page histories, and uploaded files.
- Locking (protecting) a page so it cannot be edited or renamed by users without sysops rights.
- Blocking IP addresses or user names from editing.
- Editing the interface by changing system messages (in the MediaWiki namespace).
A bureaucrat can make other users into bureaucrats or administrators on their own wiki. They are not able to remove bureaucrat access from a user; please contact one of the community staff via Special:Contact if this needs to be carried out.
Some Wikia staff members have unrestricted to all Wikia wikis. They will be shown in Special:Listusers/staff on any wiki. Please see the Central Wikia contact page for details on how to contact Wikia staff.
How do I use administrator powers?
See the administrators' how-to guide for a guide on using admin functions.
Becoming an administrator
For you to become an administrator, someone with bureaucrat rights must make you one. On larger Wikia wikis, there will usually be a community page for requests; on this wiki, it's "Encyclopedia Gamia:Admin_nominations". On a smaller wiki, you may simply ask on the community portal or forum, or ask a bureaucrat directly on his or her talk page.
If there are no active bureaucrats and you wish to become an administrator, please see the Adoption Requests page on the Central Wikia.
What should administrators not do?
Administrators should not use the powers entrusted to them settle editing disputes; for example, to lock a page on a version they prefer in an editing dispute that isn't 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 shouldn't be considered "in charge". The ideal admin is just someone who is trusted to have a few extra buttons and to use them for the benefit of the Encyclopedia Gamia community.
Hello. I have far too many games in my Steam library. Please send help.
This lists former SysOps and Bureaucrats of Encyclopedia Gamia. While these users do not have rights, they are welcome to re-apply for the SysOp position.
Finally, playing Center at an estimated 3,284 feet, The Achernar. The Achernar is easily the biggest superstar of the line up, and has a much feared game of ball. You may remember the incident in 1994 where 5 opponents and a referee were mysteriously teleported into an infinite void during the game due to The Achernar. Word has it that, due to his awesome power, The Achernar must be restrained in a titanium holding cell surrounded by a moat of lava when not playing ball. Officials assure us that this is for our protection.
I'm over 18, and I play games that are for people over 18. My focus on wikis tend to be about the games for people who are over 18.
Playing Power Forward at a towering 8'4", AlphaTwo is a titan among mortals, who's trademark "Double-pump windmill fake out" slam dunk sends waves of fear across the court. Averaging 45 points a game, AlphaTwo is an MVP amongst the administrative team. Off the court, he is known for his genorosity to kittens, and saving of countries.
Playing Shooting Guard at 5'7", Evisruc is known for his controversial hijinks on the court, such as setting the enemy players on fire. Back from a 2 year suspension from the league, Evisruc is determined to reclaim the glory he had in his '88-'89 season. Off the court, he is known to turn into Captain Marvel by saying the name of the wizard Shazam.
The waterboy. He doesn't play well, but he will keep you hydrated!
