Custodians

A custodian (usually known as the rollback/moderator group) is responsible for keeping the wiki tidy. To this end, they are equipped with the abilities to delete pages (for example, duplicate pages that have been created by new users or spam pages that have been created by vandals), remove comments from pages, as well as editing comments as well. They can also edit user blogs, and move files on the wiki. They also have the rollback ability, which allows them to quickly revert all the edits made by a user. They have green usernames on the wiki and in chat.

Requirements:

  • 3 months of wiki experience
  • 200 mainspace edits

Wiki Council

Wiki Councilors are community representatives that vote on extraordinary wiki matters. These matters include but are not limited to: accusations of admin abuse, indefinite blocks on users for reasons other than vandalism/ToU violations, and vetoing community votes that violate the ToU.

The Wiki Council consists of five Wiki Councilors that are elected by a community vote every 3-4 months. During the voting period, community members can nominate up to five eligible, active users not including themselves.

For more information and a list of council votes, see Animal Jam Wiki:Wiki Council

Requirements:

  • 3 months of wiki experience
  • 200 mainspace edits

Current Councilors:

There are currently no councillors.

Administrators

Administrators (also known as sysops) have the abilities from the custodian and chat moderator groups, in addition to some different ones. They are able to change page protection to one of three levels - available for all to edit, available for just registered users to edit, and restricting editing to only other administrators. They can access the Theme Design feature, allowing them to change the background, color scheme and logo of the wiki. Admins can also edit the Mediawiki pages, the only user group which can do so. They are able to promote other users to lower rights groups. Administrators have purple usernames.

Being an administrator carries a lot of responsibility. Though they should ideally not be thought of as leaders, members of the community will often look to them to make decisions and ultimately shape the wiki. This makes it important that only dedicated users are given sysop rights. Administrators should try and operate within the bounds of policy at all times, unless an issue cannot be resolved without 'creative' thinking. In such cases, consulting with other users is especially important. Communication can make a lot of difference in the effectiveness of an administrator - good communication can lead to improved quality of content of pages, while bad communication can lead to users becoming bitter at unexplained decisions, and may result in a vote of no confidence in that particular admin.

Requirements:

  • 6 months of wiki experience
  • 600 mainspace edits

Bureaucrats

One of the least privileged user rights groups. A bureaucrat's only ability is to have complete control over local user rights groups, with the exception of demoting other bureaucrats. For this reason, bureaucrats frequently also have the administrator rights as well. This position is usually only given to users who have consistently demonstrated dedication to the wiki and common sense when dealing with day to day matters on the wiki. Bureaucrats can by identified by their red username on the wiki and chat.

Requirements:

  • 1 year of wiki experience
  • 1,000 mainspace edits

The underling of the chat bot.

Bots

The bot right holds a mainly symbolic value, as its only purpose is an entirely functional one - hiding all the edits from the normal view of Wiki Activity. Bots don't always have their own highlighted names. Bots on the wiki always answer to their operators, and ultimately to the ruler of all bots, AJWChatBot.

The ruler of all bots, and the vast majority of the human race (though few realise the true extent of his power). Has been known to display sentience.

Loss of rights

Users may lose their rights for several reasons. The most common ones are listed below:

  • Inactivity - when users are inactive for long periods of time may lose their rights in order to allow new users to be righted while maintaining reasonable numbers of righted users at that level
  • Violation of wiki rules - a significant violation of the wiki's rules may result in a user being derighted, and sometimes blocked
  • Vote - if the community is unhappy with the way a righted user is behaving, a vote may be held to deright the aforementioned user
  • Request - sometimes users leave the wiki because of reasons including loss of interest in the topic matter, or personal matters, and will often request demotion before leaving

Applying for rights

Rights can be obtained by making a sucessful "Request for Rights", usually known as an "RfR". An application can be made at Animal Jam Wiki:Request for User Rights. In order to succeed, a request must gain support from more than 75% of voters, providing the requirements are met. The RfR will be closed after 5 days have passed.

The following criteria must be met in order to create an RfR:

  • the user must not have been banned/blocked at any point two weeks prior to creating the request
  • not be explicitly banned from making an rfr
  • not have created an rfr in two weeks
  • fulfill all of the requirements listed on Project:Request for User Rights
