Administrators are members who have "sysop rights". Current policy is to appoint new admins when it is felt that the current number of admins is insufficient. Administrators are chosen from contributors who are active and who have been around for a while and are generally known and trusted members of the community.

List of administrators


Other access types

In addition to administrators, there are other types of identified users, listed here in roughly ascending order of power.

Signed-in users

Users with ordinary access, including visitors who haven't "signed in," can still do most things, including the most important: editing articles and helping with maintenance tasks.

But only signed-up users can upload files or rename pages


Users with bureaucrat status can turn other users into sysops. Bureaucrats are created by other bureaucrats on projects where these exist, or by Wikia staff on those who don't yet have one.


Some Wikia staff members have full access to all wikis. They will be shown in Special:ListUsers/staff on any wiki. Please see contact us for details on how to contact Wikia staff.

Technical Team

The Wikia technical team can make direct changes to the Wikia software and database. These people, by and large, do not carry out administrative functions. The best way to report problems or bugs to them is via Special:Contact.

Administrator abuse

If you think an administrator has acted improperly against you or another editor, you should express your concerns directly to the administrator responsible. Try to come to a resolution in an orderly and civil manner.
