| ||For the rules which govern administrative actions on Jak and Daxter Wiki, see Jak and Daxter Wiki:Administration policy.|
There are two kinds of administrators in the Jak and Daxter Wiki - regular admins (also called sysops) and bureaucrats. The only difference between administrators and bureaucrats is that bureaucrats can give and revoke other people's administrative powers.
Admin powers include deleting pages, protecting pages and banning users. For details, please see Help:User access levels.
These people haven't edited the wiki in quite a while:
For you to become an administrator, someone with bureaucrat access must make you one. Please note that administratorship is not a reward for good contributions nor a promotion to have more authority than other users. Simply put, an admin is a user who is being trusted with access to certain technical features to aid in maintenance. Not everybody who meets the requirements will automatically become an administrator; admins are appointed on a per-need basis.
The minimum requirements for becoming an administrator are:
- You have made at least 500 edits in the article, category or template namespace (i.e. talk page, blog and forum contributions do not count).
- You have been continuously active at this wiki for at least 3 months.
- You have not made an adminship request in the past 2 months. This does not include requests which were closed because you did not meet the formal requirements.
Making the requestEdit
If you meet the requirements above and want to become an admin, you need to start a thread in Forum:Wiki discussion titled "Adminship request - [your username]". In this thread, you should describe why you would like to become an admin and what your major contributions have been so far.
The Jak and Daxter Wiki's community will then be able to discuss whether or not you should be made admin over a timespan of at least one week (or more in case of controversy). The final decision will be up to the bureaucrat(s) after the community has had its say.
