Administrators (Admins) are JoJo Wiki editors endowed with special privileges that allow them to maintain the wiki's content and configure its layout. Admins have the ability to block and unblock users, delete and undelete pages, as well as rename them without restriction. Bureaucrats are admins who have the power to give rights to other users, either temporarily or after rights are earned.

Those who become admins assume the responsibility of preventing the wiki from vandalism and act as authoritative figures that will help users by providing advice and answers to certain questions. While they can provide thoughtful insight in discussions and assistance in conflict between users, their words and votes do not carry more weight in any form of discussions on the site.

Administrator Abilities

Administrators have the technical ability to perform the following actions:

  • to block user accounts and IP addresses from editing
  • to apply page protection to restrict editing of a *particular page
  • to delete pages with 5,000 or fewer revisions
  • to override the title blacklist
  • to move a page to any desired title (this is in part *a consequence of the last two)
  • to edit fully protected pages
  • to view and restore deleted pages
  • to hide and delete page revisions

Administrator Tasks and Conduct

Administrators assume these responsibilities as volunteers who go through a community review process.

  • Admins are regularly expected to:
    • Delete pages that are obvious spam/vandalism or marked with a {{delete}} tag (if appropriate)
    • Protect pages that are subjected to heavy vandalism.
    • Block users that meet criteria for blocking
  • Admins are not acting as employees of the Wikimedia Foundation.
  • Admins are never required to use their tools, and must never use them to gain an advantage in a dispute in which they are involved.
  • Admins should not be confused with Wikimedia system administrators ("sysadmins").
  • Abuse of administrator privileges may result in a removal of user rights after community discussion.

Inactivity

Administrators should remain active by contributing to the wiki and providing assistance to other editors.

  • An active admin is defined as someone who:
    • Continuously makes significant contributions to the wiki; this can range from correcting spelling/grammar issues to adding new information to the pages. The rate at which one must contribute is undefined, though multiple times a week is preferable.
    • Can reply to user talk messages within a reasonable amount of time.
  • Admins should either consult another admin or announce to the community when they require a leave of absence.
  • If an admin continues to be largely inactive for over 6 months, removal of rights will be considered by the active bureaucrat.
