Wiki.png This page documents an official Wikizilla policy.
Before making changes, make sure they have been agreed upon.

Wikizilla Staff are users on Wikizilla granted the ability and responsibility to keep the wiki running smoothly.

There are four levels of staff on Wikizilla.

Purposes

The main job of all Wikizilla staff is to help users, so don't hesitate to ask a member of staff if you have any problems or questions.

What Wikizilla Staff should not do

Wikizilla staff should not use their tools 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, or use their blocking tool to block a user they have a dispute with. Their tools 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 the Bureaucrats shouldn't be considered "in charge." The ideal Wikizilla staff member is just someone who is trusted to have a few extra buttons and to use them for the benefit of the Wikizilla community.

Bureaucrats

Don't be afraid to leave a message on my talk page and ask me if you have any problems, suggestions, or if you spot anything bad.

Titanollante was promoted to administrator on March 21, 2013 by Maroman on the old site, and was then promoted to bureaucrat on July 1, 2014. Titanollante is also the owner of the Wikizilla.org website. Back on Wikia, Titanollante was also a Wikia Star due to having over 45,000 edits on the old Wikizilla.

GodzillaIsland7.2 was promoted to administrator on December 25, 2011, when MarwanNabihWikia offered him the promotion over on the old site. He was then promoted to bureaucrat on June 11, 2014.

The King of the Monsters was promoted to administrator on April 4, 2015. He was promoted to bureaucrat on January 10, 2016.

Astounding Beyond Belief was promoted to administrator on January 31, 2017. He was promoted to bureaucrat on October 19, 2017.

Description

The Bureaucrats are senior editors on Wikizilla. As well as being full administrators, they can also grant or revoke rollback rights for users, or they can turn other users into administrators or bureaucrats. They can revoke the administrator tools, but not the bureaucrat tools.

Administrators

Ghidorahnumber1 was promoted to administrator on March 31, 2014.

The Boy Who Cried Godzilla was promoted to administrator on July 7, 2016.

Description

The Administrators are trusted editors, equipped with the tools to keep the wiki running smoothly. Currently, every Administrator save for Astounding Beyond Belief are users who had the same role before Wikizilla became independent.

Administrator Rights

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

Bots

Titanollante's semi-automatic bot.

Description

Bots are made to perform tasks that would be tedious for someone to do manually. They can be semi-automatic (what they do needs to be approved) or automatic (they always monitor for if certain things need to be done/fixed).

Patrollers

Don't be afraid to leave a message on my talk page and ask me if you have any problems, questions, or if you spot anything bad.

Description

The Patrollers are trusted editors granted the rollback tool to keep the wiki free of any vandalism. In general, the rank of a Patroller is the first rank a normal user is promoted to; most of Wikizilla's administrators were once patrollers.

Patroller Rights

  • Rollback edits (quick revert)

Other roles

These are minor roles which usually are given alongside other positions.

Comment Administrators

Comment administrators can delete comments.

Forum Administrators

Forum administrators can create, rename and delete topics as well as manage boards of the Forum.

Promotion on Wikizilla is determined by the bureaucrats and given to extremely helpful users. A bureaucrat may give you admin rights, whether you request it or not. If you have a history of doing several thousand very good and helpful edits, your request for adminship may be considered. Please bear in mind that if you have been blocked on Wikizilla in the past, then your request will be rejected.
