Welcome to Reborn Answers. What would you like to know?

Everyone on Wikianswers can ask and answer questions, rephrase questions, or flag questions for deletion.

The top priority on Wikianswers is getting the questions answered and you don't need to be a administrator to do that!

Tasks that anyone can doEdit

  • Check recent changes and undo any vandalism.
  • Check new questions and fix any bad questions by rewording them.
  • Check new questions and fix any duplicate questions by redirecting them.
  • List bad questions for deletion by adding {{delete|reason}} to them.
  • Answer un-answered questions.
  • Advise and encourage new editors by leaving them messages on their talk page.
  • Participate in the forums.

Tasks that administrators can doEdit

  • Administrators can delete and undelete pages and can read deleted pages. Other users can flag pages for deletion by an admin. Admins should check the candidates for deletion and delete or fix any questions listed there.
  • Administrators have 1-click rollback button for quickly reverting vandalism.
  • Anyone can move pages. Administrators can also move images, and they can suppress redirects when moving a page (not recommended except in cases of vandalism as redirects are helpful to people searching for an answer).
  • Block users to prevent sustained vandalism
  • Lock questions that are subject to heavy and repeated vandalism
  • Edit the interface text
  • Edit fully protected pages
  • Delete user avatars

Bureaucrats are administrators who can also make other users into administrators using Special:Userrights.

See Help:Administrators' how-to guide for full details.

How can I become an administrator?Edit

You should have plenty of experience in doing the basic wiki tasks of answering, rewording, and categorizing, before volunteering to become an admin. Administrators are experienced users who have already answered many questions on Wikianswers and want to help keep the wiki clean by deleting questions that are not allowed. Administrators should be willing to take advice from others and work in a collaborative and sensible way.

When you're ready to volunteer, just talk to a bureaucrat on this wiki about becoming an admin. If there are no active bureaucrats, please see Wikia's adoption requests page and Wikia Staff can provide the rights.

Administrators on this Answers WikiEdit

If you ever need assistance, please contact one of our administrators, represented by his or her Dying Will Flame. Also, since we have an Oath Flame, there will not be an Earth or Sky Flame admin.

What can administrators not do? Edit

Administrators should not use their administrator powers to settle editing disputes; for example, to lock a page on a version he or she prefers in an editing dispute that isn't vandalism. Administrator powers should be used to help keep the wiki clear of vandalism, spam, and users who make malicious edits, but not for simple disagreements between users acting in good faith. Ideally an admin shouldn't be considered "in charge". The ideal admin is just someone who is trusted to have a few extra buttons and to use them for the benefit of the Wikianswers community.
