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

  • Deleting and undeleting pages, page histories, and uploaded files.
  • Locking (protecting) a page so it can not 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. They can also remove Admin rights from other Administrators but not from other Bureaucrats. To remove Bureaucrat rights from another Bureaucrat please contact one of the community staff members.

Some Wikia staff members have full access to all Wikia. 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.

Who are this Wiki's Administrators?

The "founder" of a wiki, the person who first requested it, is given administrator access automatically. Founders are also given bureaucrat access so they can make any other user on their wiki an administrator or bureaucrat. For a complete list of users with administrator access, see Special:Listusers/sysop.

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 access must make you one. However, Bureaucrats cannot randomly pick and choose who they want to be an Admin. All Users who wish to become an Admin must go through a formal discussion. To do so go to Request for Adminship and follow the guidelines for application. If the Community has voted for a certain User to become an Admin then they must agree to the Admin Policies first before any official change is made.

What do administrators do?

Administrators (including bureaucrats) are responsible for maintaining the wiki. Administrators are able to delete pages from the wiki, though non-administrators can nominate pages for deletion. Admins can also "lock" and "unlock" pages from editing, or limit editing of pages to registered users only. Administrators can use warnings to address issues with editors, and can block editors and unregistered contributors from editing the wiki if they violate policies. Administrators are able to make some changes to the wiki's appearance and interface for users, through the editing of MediaWiki pages and the wiki's .css and javascript. Administrators participate in community discussions and help determine consensus in those discussions. In addition to all these (and some other) jobs, administrators make contributions to the wiki, just like any other user.

What can administrators not do?

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 isn't vandalism. Administrator powers should be use 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 admin 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 community.

Definitions of current status

Please note: Due to the Wiki being quite Inactive and the fact that information about the Soul series is slow/non-existent that the criteria for being Active, Semi-Active and Inactive may be slightly different. Administrators are more likely to focus on their own Fanon right now due to the lack of new information about the Soul series. However, Admins still have a duty to keep this Wiki up to standard and make constructive edits where needed.

The table at the top of this page lists the current status of the various administrators on the wiki. Statuses are generally set as follows:

Current status Meaning/criteria
Active This administrator makes constructive edits to the wiki regularly and frequently. They may edit every day or every few days, but will typically be on the wiki editing several times in a week.
Semi-Active This administrator may edit somewhat infrequently, but their activity can be variable. See Note 3.
Absent This administrator has declared themselves to be absent from editing. Absent administrators may still edit, but often will not edit for weeks at a time. Long-time absent administrators are eventually tagged as 'inactive.'
Inactive This administrator has not made any constructive edits to Soulcalibur Wiki in three months or more. Inactive administrators will probably not respond to messages made on their talk page and likely will not edit unless they return to regular activity. If an Admin is Inactive for 10 Months then their Administrative rights will be removed. See Note 2.

Note 1: If an Administrator returns from Inactivity and makes constructive edits (see below) for three days in a seven day period they will become Semi-Active, the same rules apply for becoming Active once again except an Admin must edit for at least five days. However, if a week has passed and an Admin has edited under the required amount of days then their status will remain as Inactive and the seven days counter will reset.

Note 2: Removal of Administrative rights has been changed from Inactivity for 1 year to Inactivity for 10 months as of September 15, 2015. This is to ensure that the Wiki's Admins are as active as they can be as in the past the Wiki has went 1 month without any Admins and it fell into chaos. This will effect current Inactive Admins therefore if you have been Inactive for 10 months or more your rights will be removed immediately. This does not apply if an Admin is listed as Absent. Please note, the beginning of the 10 month countdown to removal of Administration rights will start the day of your last constructive edit. This means that three months after your last constructive edit your account will be listed as Inactive however the 10 month countdown would have started at your last constructive edit (in this example, three months ago meaning you have 7 months remaining before your rights are removed).

Note 3: An Administrators status will change from Active to Semi-Active if they have not made any constructive edits (see below) to the Wiki in two months. In order to become Active again they must make a constructive edit for at least three days in a seven day period. However, if a week has passed and an Admin has edited under the required amount of days then their status will remain as Semi-Active and the seven days counter will reset.

What is a "Constructive Edit"?

The words "constructive edit" is used a lot in this article, especially in the notes above. However, what exactly do we mean when we say "constructive edit"? Well, a constructive edit is simply an edit that is useful to the Wiki! This means; making edits to canon pages (E.g adding new information, removing wrong information, fixing grammar etc), editing a template, editing policies, enforcing the rules, adding categories to articles, editing other users fanon (E.g grammar correction, category correction/addition), maintaining the wiki in general, regular admin duties (E.g giving warnings to Users, deleting unused/unneeded articles etc) or anything similar to that.
A constructive edit is not an edit to your own fanon, an edit to your own User page or message wall, an edit to another users message wall (Unless it involves Admin duties like giving a warning) or anything that in general is not useful to the Wiki.
