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.

How do I use administrative 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 wikis, there will usually be a community page for requests, with a page name such as "World Trigger Wiki:Requests for adminship." On a smaller wiki, you may simply ask on the community portal or forum or ask a bureaucrat directly on their 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 Fandom 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 they prefer in an editing dispute that is not 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 administrator should not be considered "in charge." The ideal administrator is just someone who is trusted to have a few extra buttons that they can use for the benefit of the Fandom community.
