Currently Hitchwiki has a bunch of administrators (or sysops), people who are able to protect and delete pages.
If you're doing a lot of work on this wiki and it shows that you understand MediaWiki stuff you might suddenly find yourself with admin power. We're not really in need for more admins, but let us know if you want to help.
- protect pages
- delete pages
- block users or IP addresses
- edit system messages for layout and such
Usually these powers (#1 to #3) are only used in case of spam or vandalism.
Bureaucrats can also promote and demote other users.
So far we have been very liberal with giving out these powers and we try to keep it like this. So feel free to contact a bureaucrat if you want to be a sysop.
