Administrators (also known as "admins" or "sysops") are trusted users, who are generally chosen by the community and also have access to the following rights:

  • All privileges from the Discussions Moderator and Content Moderator groups.
  • Delete and undelete pages, as well as delete images or files.
  • Lock (protect) both a page and a file so it cannot be edited or renamed by users without adminship privileges.
  • Block users who are vandalizing the wiki from editing and other actions.
  • Grant and revoke both the Chat Moderator and Discussion Moderator rights.
  • Edit the community's skin and format.
  • Edit whitelisted MediaWiki pages.

For more details, see the Help:Administrators' how-to guide.

The state of being an administrator is also referred to as "adminship". Being an administrator makes "ADMIN" appear next to a user's name on their profile.
