| This page is an official policy on the Young Kingdoms Wiki.
It is considered a standard that all users should follow. In accordance with policy, this page has been locked.
Administrators are vital to the smooth running of any wiki project and this wiki is no different. This policy outlines the part Admins play on Young Kingdoms Wiki.
Administrators of The Young Kingdoms Wiki are:
What is an Admin?Edit
Administrators are members of the community who have been leaders on the site with regards to quality and quantity of edits. The role of administrators is not one of authority, but rather so that a small group of members can oversee the project as a whole, and maintain site-wide consistency in terms of formatting and style.
An Admin is...
- here to oversee the project to prevent vandalism, abuse or straying from the goals and guidelines determined by the community.
- enthusiastic about the project and wants to see it succeed. That means he doesn't want you to get frustrated or worn out and leave.
- here to help you. Generally Admins have advanced expertise or experience with this or other wiki projects. They are valuable teachers and mentors for all editors, including each other.
An Admin is not...
- a better writer than you. Just because you may not be an Admin doesn't mean your contributions are less helpful or of lower quality.
- above the law. Admins must adhere to official Young Kingdoms Wiki policy just like everyone else.
- always right. Admins are people with opinions just like everyone else and occasionally they can be as incorrect as the rest of us.
Admins have more privileges than most members, but with this extra access comes increased responsibility to the community. It is important to remember that Admins are here to serve you and to make PathfinderWiki the best that it can be.
Administrators are responsible for the following:
- Ensuring the project stays true to its goals and guidelines, as determined by the members of the community.
- Overseeing maintenance and upkeep of the site both aesthetically and functionally.
- Being a leader in the community, both as a teacher and initiator of new projects.
- Being active in discussions on the running and growth of the wiki.
- Being accessible by email to any user who wished to contact them privately.
- Being willing to set aside content editing to make structural or institutional changes to the site when required.
Administrators have the following privileges not awarded to standard users:
- Ability to delete and undelete pages
- Ability to edit the mediawiki framework of the site
- Ability to protect and unprotect pages and edit pages which are protected.
