Mr. Men Wiki

Different users have access to different functions of the site. While anyone can do most things on the site, including reading and editing, administrators can access a few additional functions.

Administrator abilities

These additional functions include:

  • Deleting and undeleting pages, page histories, and uploaded files.
  • Locking (protecting) a page so it cannot be edited or renamed by users without admin or content moderator rights or autoconfirmed status.
  • Blocking IP addresses or usernames from editing; and very quick "rollback" of undesirable edits.
  • Editing the interface by changing system messages and skins.

Bureaucrat abilities

A bureaucrat can make other users into bureaucrats, administrators, or content moderators on their own wiki.

Bureaucrats can also give users the ability to "rollback" edits not made in good faith.

Staff

Fandom staff members have full access to all of Fandom. They will be shown in Special:ListGlobalUsers/staff on any wiki. Please use Special:Contact to contact Fandom staff.

Who are this wiki's administrators?

The "founder" of a wiki, the person who first requested it, is given administrator access automatically. Founders are also given bureaucrat access so they can make any other user on their wiki an administrator, bureaucrat, content moderator, or rollback. For a complete list of users with administrator access, see Special:Listusers/sysop.

How do I use administrator powers?

See the administrators' how-to guide for a guide on using admin functions.

Becoming an administrator

For you to become an administrator, someone with bureaucrat access must make you one. On larger Fandoms, there will usually be a community page for requests, with a page name such as "Mr. Men Wiki:Requests for adminship". On a smaller wiki, you may simply ask on the community portal or Discussions, or ask a bureaucrat directly on his or her message wall.

If there are no active bureaucrats, use the "Requests for adminship" page to nominate users to become admins or bureaucrats. Once a community decision has been reached (or if there is no active community to debate the decision), please leave a message at the wiki adoption requests page and Fandom Staff or a Wiki Representative can provide the rights.

What can administrators not do?

Administrators should not use their administrator powers to settle editing disputes; for example, to lock a page on a version he or she prefers in an editing dispute that isn't vandalism. Administrator powers should be used to help keep the wiki clear of vandalism, spam, and users who make malicious edits, but not for simple disagreements between users acting in good faith. Ideally an admin shouldn't be considered "in charge". The ideal admin is just someone who is trusted to have a few extra buttons and to use them for the benefit of the Fandom community.
