What are administrators and bureaucrats?
Administrations are people of a specific in a wiki that have the rights to: Administrators (or "admins" or "sysop") are trusted users, who are generally chosen by the community and also have access to the following tools:
- they have all privileges from the chat moderator and rollback groups and also have the ability to:
- delete and undelete pages, as well as delete images or files (it is not possible to **undelete images or files).
- lock (protect) a page so it cannot be edited or renamed by users without adminship privileges.
- block users who are vandalising the wiki from editing, etc.
- grant and revoke chat moderator rights.
- edit the wiki's skin and format.
- edit MediaWiki pages.
Bureaucrats are one level up from administrators but have none of the administrator privileges. Bureaucrats only have the ability to manipulate users rights. They have the ability to promote and revoke rollback, chat moderator and administrator rights as well as appointing new bureaucrats. While they cannot directly revoke another user's bureaucrat status, they can revoke their own. Bureaucrats also have the ability to revoke a user's bot status in case the bot is malfunctioning, but community consensus is required for the addition of users's bot status.
Chat moderators are users who have chat moderator status in chat in order to moderate a wiki's chat room. They are able to block users from chat, which will kick a user out of the chat and ban them from returning until a chat moderator or an admin removes "Banned from chat" at Special:UserRights.
Regularly active administrators and bureaucrats are in bold.
