Administrators, or simply admins (also called sysops for system operators) are users who can use some additional tools to maintain Vikidia. They can use these tools because they are trusted by the community but that does not imply that administrators are more "important" than any other user on other levels. For example, during a vote, the opinion of an admin doesn't count more than that of another user.
Administrator's tools[edit | edit source]
All these actions can also be undone by an administrator (delete → undelete, protect → unprotect, etc.)
Delete[edit | edit source]
Revision deletion[edit | edit source]
Admins can also hide some entries from a page's history, for example if there is copyright infringement, or some other illegal content.
Protecting pages[edit | edit source]
If a page is "sensitive" (a widely used template, for example) or currently vandalised, a sysop can protect the page, to prevent users editing it. There are two levels of protection: The full protection, which prevents all users (except admins) from editing the page, and the semi-protection which prevents only new users (and anonymous users) from editing.
Blocking users/IPs[edit | edit source]
Administrators can block users who are causing trouble on Vikidia. Usually, an administrator shouldn't block himself and users with whom he is in conflict.
