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.
These additional functions include:
- 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 or autoconfirmed status.
- 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.
Bureaucrats can also give users the ability to "rollback" edits not made in good faith.
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.
List of Administrators
|Greetings Users, I am Alex2424121 (Also known as Alex) I am British and I have a massive interest in media such as the history, the inspiration and the secrets that were never known.
I have good eyes when tracking down mistakes in spelling or sentences. Making them letter perfect.
I always prefer to keep my facts and writings true, simple and understandable, requiring not to display too much or jump to conclusions. Sudden facts and rumours that are yet to be proven true causes confusion and judgement in my opinion.
|I began editing the Rebels Wiki on July 22, 2014. At the time, I had only previously edited the RAGE Wiki, on which I am an Administrator. Strangely, it was actually the Wiki that got me into the show, rather than vice versa. Since then, I have accumulated over 2K edits, and have been promoted to a very respectable rank.
My interest in Star Wars began long ago, when I was a small child. Since then, I have gone on to discover more than just the Prequels, such as the Original Trilogy, The Force Unleashed video game series, The Clone Wars animated series, and, of course, Rebels.
|I am Byzantinefire and i am also known as on as Byz.
I am a user that is usually found editing on all sorts of different wiki's and adding hi res images to them. I am also a huge fan of Star Wars, Marvel, Disney and also other stuff that are too hard to easily list.
Also aspires to be in some way a great significance to something. Hobbies include mostly Internet surfing, image collecting, watching episodes from various shows, playing the PS4 and movie watching.
How do I use administrator powers?
See Help: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. On larger Wikia, there will usually be a community page for requests, with a page name such as "Star Wars Rebels Wiki:Requests for adminship". 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, use the "Requests for adminship" page to nominate users to become admins or bureaucrats. Once a community decision has been reached (or if there is no active community to debate the decision), please leave a message at the wiki adoption requests page and Wikia Staff can provide the rights.
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 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 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.
