To reach a Interface administrator immediately, see the Interface administrators' Noticeboard. (If you rather need to reach an administrator, please use the Administrators' Noticeboard instead.)


Interface administrators (interface-admins) are users who can edit all Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), JavaScript (JS), and Javascript Object Notation (JSON) pages, as well as pages in the MediaWiki namespace. These pages are executed by the browser of wiki editors and readers as code, which can be used to change how content is styled, change the behavior of pages, or even create complex tools to help with editing. All registered users may edit their own personal JS/CSS/JSON pages (as described on Wikipedia:User scripts) but interface administrators are the only local user group that has the ability to edit any CSS or JS page in Wikispecies, including the scripts of other users.

The promotion to interface administrator is time-limited to one year, after which the user is automatically demoted. If needed the user may then reapply their application for a new period. The time-limit is in place as a proactive measure due to the fact that this user right unlocks some powerful tools that may be potentially dangerous in the hands of a malicious user. This is also why interface administrator user rights are only granted to users who are highly trusted, have at least a basic understanding of CSS and JS, are aware of the privacy policies and praxis of Wikimedia wikis, and have a decent understanding of how to secure their account (choosing strong and unique passwords, avoiding malware infection, and using two-factor authentication for logins).

If you need assistance of an interface administrator, you can make a request at the Interface administrators' Noticeboard.


There are two general kinds of pages in the MediaWiki namespace: Message pages and site configuration pages. Interface administrators can edit and delete these pages, and can modify user configuration pages that live in the user space of other editors. Administrators who are not interface administrators can instead edit and delete most message pages (but not all of them).

Administrators and oversighters who are not interface administrators can delete and revision delete (or suppress in the case of oversighters) JS or CSS pages that live in the user space of other editors, as well as view their deleted revisions. However, they cannot restore revisions of those pages. Both regular administrators and interface administrators can modify JSON pages in the MediaWiki namespace or within the user space of other editors.
