Administrators, also referred to as sysops, are people dedicated to maintain Encyclopedia Hiigara, protect it from vandalism and other unneeded or wrong users activity. They are users trusted to be responsible enough to have access to the following tools:

  • They have all privileges from the rollback and chat moderator groups and also have the ability to:
    • Delete pages, page histories, files etc.
    • Rename files.
    • Lock (protect) a page so it cannot be edited or renamed by users without admin rights.
    • Block an IP address or user name from editing.
    • Revert bad edits more easily using a "rollback" link.
  • Edit the MediaWiki namespace to make changes to the interface.

The sysop flag is not a status symbol. Sysops are simply other members of the community with some extra tools on the wiki.

Sysops have the ability to grant and revoke rollback and chat moderator rights.

How do you become a sysop? Edit

  • Every founder of a wiki is automatically granted sysop access on the wiki they founded.
  • Other users may also be granted this access, by the founder, or by bureaucrats.
  • Do not ask to become a sysop. The flag is given out on the basis of need to either effectively manage the wiki, or if there are special semantic functions that you carry out on the wiki.
