    Companyball Wiki:Administrators


    Administrators on Companyball Wiki are users who are in charge of monitoring the wiki and handling administrative tasks.

    Administrator abilities[edit source]

    These additional functions include:

    • Deleting and undeleting pages, page histories, and uploaded files.
    • Protecting certain pages so they cannot be edited or renamed by users without admin rights or autoconfirmed status.
    • Blocking IP addresses or user names from editing and and very quick "rollback" of undesirable edits.
    • Resolving issues that appear in the community.
    • Give confirmed, autopatrolled, rollbacker and moderator rights to trusted users.

    A special type of administrators, interface administrator may edit interface messages, allowing changes to the wiki's look and behavior.

    They can grant several rights depending on what is needed. Moderators have many of the page management abilities admins do, but cannot block or make major wiki decisions on their own. Rollbackers can quickly revert undesirable edits made by a single user. Autopatrolled is an indication of trust, that one's edits do not need to be 'patrolled'.

    Appointment & Revocation[edit source]

    Appointment[edit source]

    Administrators may be appointed in one of two ways: administrators appointment by bureaucrat consensus, or requesting (/being nominated for) the right at Project:Requests for rights.

    If a user requests the right through the Requests for rights, they must meet certain criteria in order to win a request for rights.

    In order to win a request for rights, the candidate needs to:

    1. Have at least 7 unique votes. Any user who uses sockpuppetry, meatpuppetry, or canvasses their vote will be disqualified immediately and will be barred for a year from requesting any rights. The user may also face a ban from the wiki. Should they have any local rights (aside from autoconfirmed), it will be revoked. Any associates in the plot will be considered the same way.
    2. Have a support ratio of at least 70%.
    3. Have had their requests for rights opened for at least 1 week.

    Bureaucrats will be in charge of closing local requests for rights and exercise discretion, in particular casting out votes which are fraudulent or overriding consensus if the majority of bureaucrats believe there is a significant issue with the candidate's abilities or the vote itself. They may close a vote early if there is clearly little chance of success.

    In order to vote, users should have at least 100 edits and have been present on this wiki for at least 1 month.

    Revocation[edit source]

    Administrators are expected to be examples in good conduct. If they are not, they may be removed. They should not be the source of drama and other issues on or off wiki that come back to the community and its reputation. They may also be removed if rights are abused, cause serious damage to wiki integrity, or demonstrate a severe lack of competence.

    A vote of no confidence may be started at any time at Project:Requests for rights. The vote must have at least 10 votes, 70% in favor. All voters must be eligible (100 edits, 1 month on this wiki). Bureaucrats will review the vote, taking note of any issues such as sockpuppetry or canvassing which may have damaged the vote's integrity.

    Bureaucrats may additionally close the vote if:

    1. They believe the request was in bad-faith or lacks merit.
    2. The request will clearly fail by a large margin (after 4 days).
    3. If the evidence of abuse is absolute beyond doubt, in which case the right may be removed immediately.

    Bureaucrats (as a majority) may remove administrators at any time based on the above expectations.

    Finally, administrators may be demoted if they have not done at least 1 logged action in at least 3 months. They may reapply at any time after that when they are able to return and administer again.

    Who are this wiki's administrators?[edit source]

    The administrators, however they were appointed, are established members of the Companyball Wiki who've likely done a lot before reaching adminship. They as well as bureaucrats work as a team to help keep the wiki running; bureaucrats, including the wiki's founder are the most central community members who lead and make executive decisions.

    For a technical list of admins, see Special:ListUsers/sysop.

    • Administrators have all privileges from the wiki's moderator and rollback groups.

    How do I use administrator powers?[edit source]

    If you are unsure how to use powers, feel free to ask a more senior administrator or bureaucrat for advice. Alternatively, you may request rights on the Miraheze Public Test Wiki, where you can experiment with powers at any time to see what is possible.

    What can administrators not do?[edit source]

    Administrators should be conservative in using their powers, especially to block, protect or delete things if they are not outright vandalism or severe policy violations. For minor issues or community disputes, diplomacy should be used. Administrators should be responsible and arbitrate issues, not make them worse. It's preferred to assume good faith that a user was trying to do good and to correct them, rather than punish them. In most cases, an administrator should be a regular user who happens to have powers when an issue appears.
