Hey, becoming an admin on a wiki is possible on different ways. You can always ask a bureaucrat/founder for promoting. If there's no bureaucrat/admin active you can do an adoption here on Community Central.
So how about if the bureaucrat insists on opposing the public's opinions of having new admins? And if the bureaucrat is known to be suppressing freedom of speech or protecting pages unreasonably, so can the public choose new bureaucrats to stop this thing happening?
There's not much people can do against this. But normally people will go away of the wiki, so there's nobody. Also why would you want to be a bureaucrat there then? Normally also for these things Special:Contact is the best way.
Wikia supports the right of a community to decide who should be Admins. They can even decide when an impeachment is called for.
While true, normally Staff will leave a wiki and its administration alone, there are circumstances in which bureaucrats and admins are overly abusive. When this happens, the community is encouraged to discuss it in Forums and Blogs, then after at least a week link them in a report via Special:Contact (also found through "Contact Wikia" at the bottom of your wiki's pages). Should administration edit, delete or even block the discussion and or participants, then Report with links sooner than the proscribed week; Staff will be able to reconstruct everything as needed.
Repeat: Mainly in cases of ToU violations.
Understand, this could get ugly. But if the community reaches a consensus, Staff will at least look into the matter. However this shakes out, Good Luck to your community and wiki.
If you did not create a Wiki, there are several ways to become an admin!
Many wikis require admins to have specific traits and behaviors that set them apart from the rest of the community as good leaders and intelligent people with the skills to guide a wiki. This wiki's requirements and specifics for adminship are pretty strict and pretty specific, so they're a good example to go off of. For some other examples, check out the Policy Page on my home wiki or another wiki!
To become a Staff member you have to apply for a job at wikia, Which is just like a regular job. Check out the link here. Hope this helps! When in doubt. CarsIopl3887 15:20, November 23, 2013 (UTC)Iopl3887
I'm not Tim, but I'd suggest sending in an email via Special:Contact/bug so it can be logged and forwarded to the tech staff for investigation. It's so easy to lose track of informal bug reports like this, so it's best to have something logged properly. You should get a reply within 2 working days (which will likely be around Tuesday).
Hi there Tim! I was wondering if you know who added the background on the community central wiki. The reason I ask is that I'm trying to design a similiar bg for the lotr wiki, but I'm not sure what the steps are. If you could point me in the right direction I'd really appreciate it!
So, to make this short, sir, may I request to make me, and my fellow wiki members and colleagues, Wraiyf and Oppaichan, an administrator of the wiki, which I stated above. Our objective is to make that wiki more information giving and professional looking and to help Striker10, the current admin of the wiki. We see great oppurtunities for the wiki and we will make it bigger, better information giver.
I was visiting a Wiki entitled "The Awesomeness Wiki" and I noticed something unusual. Most of the information that I know may lack some things so sorry about that.
Anyway, from what I know, when I first visited that wiki, I found out that the founder of the wiki has been blocked. I asked one of the administrators on the wiki why this user was blocked. He/she replied that he was vandalizing, so he/she was blocked. But then later on, when I returned to see if anything occurred on the wiki, I found a page in which that same administrator, along with another user, claim that THEY are the founders of the wiki, and are accusing the founder of vandalism. Is this some sort of plagiarism or just some weird control over the wiki? Please respond as soon as possible, and thank you for reading this message wall.
