Administrators have the technical ability to perform the following actions:

  • block (and unblock) user accounts and IP addresses from editing
  • protect (and unprotect) pages to restrict editing of a particular page
  • delete and undelete pages
  • delete images and other uploaded files
  • edit the interface and other protected pages

Administrators assume these responsibilities as volunteers who go through a community review process. They are not acting as employees of the Wikimedia Foundation. They are never required to use their tools, and must never use them to gain an advantage in a dispute in which they are involved.


Administrator status can be assigned by any Bureaucrat, and may be removed by a Steward in cases of abuse.

Misuse of administrative tools

Misusing the administrative tools is considered a serious issue. The administrative tools are provided to trusted users for maintenance and other tasks, and should be used with thought. Serious misuse may result in sanction or even their removal. Misuse, and its consequences, are defined and decided by consensus of the Wikispecies community.

IRC for admins

Wikispecies has an IRC-channel as an option for live communication; #wikispecies-admins (IRC channel), which is accessible for invited members.

Type "/nick theusernameyouwantgoeshere" to switch to that username,
register by typing "/msg nickserv register yourpassword youremail".
To keep your email address private, type: "/msg nickserv set hidemail on"
To keep others from using your name while you're offline, type: "/msg nickserv set enforce on"
In the future, you must login by typing "/msg nickserv identify yourpasswordgoeshere" (some clients can do this automatically when you connect).

You access the channel with command /join #wikispecies-admins.

There is a mailing list located at mail:wikispecies-admin. This is a useful tool for coordination off-wiki; it is recommended that admins sign up for the list.
