Administrators, or sysops, are users who can edit any page or do certain tasks that a normal user cannot do, such as banning vandals. They also leave messages for users, telling them about their mistakes or correcting them. Administrators are selected on an as-needed basis only. As the Tomodachi Life Wiki expands, more administrators may be needed to assist in its operation. There are no official criteria to become an administrator, however there are a few basic guidelines. When an administrator is needed, one will be selected from the rest of the users who:

  • Has had an account on the Tomodachi Life Wiki for some time.
  • Is an active contributor. This includes constantly creating or uploading maintenance templates.
  • Has no history of vandalism or abuse of the Tomodachi Life Wiki.

Again, administrators are only selected when one is needed. When this occurs, the current admins will let the rest of the users know. Until then, it is safe to assume that the Tomodachi Life Wiki is operating smoothly as it is.

Instructions for AdministratorsEdit

How do I use administrator powers?Edit

See the administrators' how-to guide for a guide on using admin functions.

How do admins grant rollback or admin rights?Edit

See User rights management.

What can administrators not do?Edit

Administrators should not use their administrator powers to settle editing disputes; for example, to lock a page on a version he or she prefers in an editing dispute that is not vandalism. 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 should not be considered "in charge." The ideal admin is simply someone who is trusted to have a few extra buttons and to use them for the benefit of the wiki. Remember, being an administrator is no big deal.

No administrator availableEdit

In case, there is no administrator active during a vandal attack or any kind of problem. Make sure to contact Wikia Staff , VSTF, or a Helper.

Wikia StaffEdit

Some Wikia staff members have full access to all of Wikia. They will be shown in Special:Listusers/staff on any wiki. Please see the Central Wikia contact page for details on how to contact Wikia staff member. Wikia staff are not counted as administrators on this wiki, and are just staff members of our hosting service. contact page for details on how to contact Wikia staff.

HelperEdit

Helpers have limited administrator access to all Wikia for cleanup purposes. These users will be shown on Special:Listusers/helper on any Wikia. Please see the Central Wikia contact page for details on how to contact Wikia staff or even a helper.

VSTFEdit

The Volunteer Spam Task Force (VSTF) is a group of Wikia users who have volunteered to help keep Wikia clear and free of spam and vandalism. The group is made up of users who act in the interest of keeping Wikia clean of vandalism and spam, and they are given additional user rights that allow them to detect, delete, and block these spam edits and users. You can report spam on the VSTF Wiki.
