An Administrator is an editor who has the extra ability to:

  • Block and unblock other users
  • Delete and undelete pages on the site
  • Protect and unprotect pages
  • Edit pages in the MediaWiki namespace (e.g. MediaWiki:Sidebar)
  • View deleted edits of a page
  • View any contributions by a user to pages which are deleted.

Administrators have basically the same rights as Content administrators, plus the ability to edit site-wide JS/CSS.


Requests for administrator permissions are done via a custom form on Phabricator.
