This page documents an official policy on the Big Bang Theory Wiki.

It has wide acceptance among editors and is considered a standard that everyone should follow.

The Big Bang Theory Wiki maintains a select number of users who have earned the trust needed to run the Wiki. These users, known as administrators, are awarded with certain capabilities, which in turn give them more responsibility towards the administration and maintenance of the Wiki. Such positions are awarded to those who continually show that they are willing to create and write in-depth articles, cover a scope of a project, and/or revert vandalism.

Below is a list of staff based on responsibility and right. Please note that the reason may not be their only sole contribution to the TBBT Wiki.

Administrator levelsEdit

RollbacksEdit

Rollbacks are editors with extended rights that help them contribute to and modify the site. All Rollbacks are promoted by a bureaucrat, and are standardly promoted for life, although they have the right to decline or step down at any time.

Rollback tools include:

  • Rolling back edits and vandalism.
  • Not affected by rate limits.

Unlike becoming a Sysop (see below), you can become a rollback by making a clear request to one of the current bureaucrats, here. Please be aware that your contributions will be reviewed, as history of defense against vandalism is needed to become a Rollback.

Rollbacks on the TBBT Wiki are also able to add and remove articles from the Vandalism and Edit War Watch.

SysopsEdit

Sysops (Admin Level 1) are admins with rights that help them contribute to and modify the site. All sysops are promoted by a bureaucrat or member of Wikia staff, and are standardly promoted for life, although they have the right to decline or step down at any time.

Sysop tools include:

  • Deleting and undeleting pages, page histories, and uploaded files.
  • Protecting a page so it cannot be edited or renamed by users without admin rights.
  • Blocking IP addresses or user names from editing.
  • Rolling back edits and vandalism.
  • Editing the interface by changing system messages and skins.
  • Not affected by rate limits.
  • Edit the MediaWiki namespace to make changes to the interface.

BureaucratsEdit

Bureaucrats (Admin Level 2) are admins with extended rights that help them contribute to and modify the site. All bureaucrats are promoted by another bureaucrat or member of Wikia staff, and are standardly promoted for life, although they have the right to decline or step down at any time.

Bureaucrat tools include:

  • Making other users into bureaucrats, sysops, and/or rollbacks.
  • Removing users from the sysop or rollback group.
  • Removing themselves from the bureaucrat group.
  • Blocking IP addresses or user names from editing.
  • Editing the interface by changing system messages and skins.
  • Not affected by rate limits.
  • Changing the active Wikia Features.

Who are this wiki's administrators?Edit

Administrators are Big Bang Theory Wiki users who have sysop rights. While they do not own the Wiki and are equal to other users in terms of editorial responsibility, they are entrusted with several performance and security features to help ensure the smooth-running of the Wiki. Users may seek them out to perform maintenance to the TBBT Wiki, and for advice and information.

Current Admins Edit

RollbackersEdit

Rollbackers are users who have been granted additional rights by bureaucrats. While they are equal to other users in terms of editorial responsibility, they are especially trusted to keep articles safe from vandalism and bad-faith edits. These abilities are Rollback, the ability to move a number of articles without being halted by spam restrictions, the ability to move files, and the ability to suppress redirects. The only they aren't able to do is to block users, delete duplicate article or vandalized articles. Simply add any one of the various Maintenance templates and forward it up to the higher chain. Once trusted and proven yourself you will be asked to accept an additional promotion.
