Hi all,

What is the difference between a bureaucrat and an admin? Also is there a difference between a promoted admin and the wiki founder? Thanks AshleyWilliams 22:09, July 2, 2012 (UTC)

Bureaucrats can make themselves admins, and promote and demote other admins. Furthermore, only Wikia staff can remove bureaucrat rights (and that only very rarely happens). A founder is the person who created the wiki -- they automatically have bureaucrat and admin rights by default. Those are the basic differences between them. 20px_Rin_Tohsaka_Avatar.png Mathmagician ƒ(♫) 23:04 UTC, Mon, 02 July 2012
