Different users have access to different functions of the site. While anyone can do most things on the site, including reading and editing, administrators (also called sysops) can access a few additional functions:
- Deleting and undeleting pages, page histories, and uploaded files. They can also view a user's contributions to pages that have since been deleted.
- 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, Janitors, Wikia Staff
A bureaucrat can make other users into bureaucrats or administrators on this wiki.
Some Wikia staff members have full access to all Wikia. They will be shown in Special:Listusers/staff on any wiki. Wikia janitors have limited administrator access to all Wikia for cleanup purposes. These users will be shown on Special:Listusers/janitor on any Wikia. Please see the Central Wikia contact page for details on how to contact Wikia staff.
So who are this wiki's administrators?
For an automated 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.
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 Wikia community.
