Different users have access to different functions of the site. While anyone can do most things on this site - including reading and editing - only users with roles can access a few additional functions:
- Deleting and restoring 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
Additionally, a bureaucrat can make other users into bureaucrats or administrators.
Some Fandom staff members have full access to all Fandom.
What Do Roles Mean?
Content moderators are quasi-administrators, with the ability to delete and undelete pages, roll back edits, and semi-protect pages.
Administrators are users on the D.Gray-man Wiki with sysop (system operator) user access levels. This includes the ability to delete and undelete pages, roll back edits, protect and unprotect pages, block and unblock users, and edit the site's interface. Administrators are a group entrusted with maintenance tools.
Bureaucrats are administrators with the ability to add and remove the administrator role to and from users.
Wiki Managers are local Fandom Staff who are liaisons to global Fandom Staff and have user access levels above bureaucrats. One Wiki Manager is assigned to each wiki. A Wiki Manager performs tasks at the request of the local community, but they are not treated as local administrators, and do not override them except to intervene against abuse of power.
Who are Our Administrators?
What Can't Administrators Do?
Administrators should not use their administrator powers to settle editing disputes.
They cannot lock a page to a version they prefer in an editing dispute (in which vandalism is not a factor).
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 administrator shouldn't be considered "in charge".
The ideal administrator has a few extra abilities, but uses them to benefit the community.
