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 cannot 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.
Bureaucrats are Administrators with a few other powers such as:
- Granting bureaucrat access to another user.
- Granting admin rights to another user.
- Revoking admin rights from a user.
Moderators are selected users that are granted certain administrator rights such as:
- Rollback powers that allow them to revert edits with one click.
- Chat powers that allow them to kickban misbehaving users.
Administrators and Bureaucrats 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 Wikia community.
Moderators shouldn't abuse their powers by undoing worthwhile edits, and should not kickban users unnecessarily.
