GTA Wiki requires an active group of users to act as Staff.

You may apply for Rollback rights or Administrator/Bureaucrat privileges on this noticeboard. To do so, you must meet the prerequisites, and then state what position you are looking for and why you think you need the rollback and/or administrator tools.

Requests for Checkuser and Revision Delete must be done at Community Central (and they will probably be declined).

Requests for Demotion (RfD) may also be posted here. Please see Demotion Rules for instructions on how to deal with Demotion posts in the correct manner.

What are Staff roles?

Main article: GTA Wiki:Staff

There are three different Staff rights. Members of these rights have different powers and are trusted to use them responsibly.

Patrollers are given the Rollback tool. This allows users to quickly revert vandalism with the click of a button. They are also given the ability to edit protected pages. Patrollers are also trusted to issue out Warnings to users who do not comply with the GTA Wiki: Policy.

Administrators are given the Moderator power and are able to:

  • Ban users.
  • Delete pages and files.
  • Access the Admin Dashboard features:
    • View the wiki's Statistics and Wiki Analytics.
    • Create and post Announcements.
    • Edit protected pages and MediaWiki related pages.
    • Edit the wiki theme and design.

Bureaucrats are given the Bureaucrat power. In addition to the Moderator power abilities, Bureaucrats are able to promote and demote users, excluding other bureaucrats. As senior members of the wiki, they are also able to close promotion and demotion requests and are able to make decisions on whether requests are appropriate or necessary.


How does one qualify?

Patroller

To qualify for Patroller, editors must have been active for two months with no rule violations.

Patroller applicants must receive at least a 60% "yes" majority vote to be promoted. Users who apply within three months of joining may face a three month probationary period. This may also apply in situations such as activity being low, inexperience or users who were previously demoted. At the end of the three months a review will be made by Bureaucrats and Administrators to determine whether or not the user will retain their rights.

Administrator

To qualify for administrator rights, editors must have been active Patrollers for four months with no rule violations.

Administrators must receive a 70% 'yes' percentage to be promoted. Those applying for administrator will likely be asked questions on how they deal with certain situations. This is to see if a user has the capabilities of being an administrator.

Editors with rollback and administrator experience on other wikis are encouraged to apply, and based on the editor in question exceptions may be made to the length of time editing required for promotion.

When applying for promotion, a community vote will take place. Voting lasts 7 days, although it may be allowed to run shorter (in the case of an obvious pass/fail) or longer (in the case of a very close vote) at bureaucrat discretion. Only bureaucrats should close votes.
