For the chat rules and list of chat moderators, see Fallout Wiki:Chat.
There are five kinds of users with additional powers in the Fallout Wiki - patrollers, chat moderators, moderators, administrators and bureaucrats.
- Chat moderators have the power to ban users from chat.
- Patrollers have the power to roll back edits with just one click and mark edits as patrolled.
- Moderators have the power to roll back edits with just one click, ban users from chat and mark edits as patrolled.
- Administrators have the power to - in addition to the powers of a moderator - delete pages, protect pages and ban users from the wiki.
- Bureaucrats differ from regular administrators in that bureaucrats can give and revoke other people's administrative powers.
For details, please see Help:User access levels.
Users with special user rights
|The Old World Relics|
User rights requests
For you to become an administrator, moderator, chat moderator or patroller, someone with bureaucrat access must make you one. Please note that the additional user rights are not a reward for good contributions nor a promotion to have more authority than other users. Simply put, a special rights user is a user who is being trusted with access to certain technical features to aid in article or community maintenance. Not everybody who meets the requirements will automatically become a special rights user, they are appointed on a per-need basis.
The minimum requirements for becoming a chat moderator are:
- You've made at least 100 edits, and at least 50 of these must be in the article, category or template namespace (i.e. talk page, blog and forum contributions do not count for these set 50).
- You have been endorsed by at least one active administrator (see Making the request below).
- You have been continuously active at this wiki, and in this wiki’s chat, for at least two months.
The minimum requirements for becoming a patroller are:
- You've made at least 250 edits in the article, category or template namespace (i.e. talk page, blog and forum contributions do not count).
- You have been continuously active at this wiki for at least one month.
The minimum requirements for becoming a moderator are:
- You have made at least 500 edits in the article, category or template namespace (i.e. talk page, blog and forum contributions do not count).
- You have been continuously active at this wiki for at least two months.
- You have not made a failed moderator rights request in the past two months. This does not include requests which were closed because you did not meet the formal requirements.
The minimum requirements for becoming an administrator are:
- You have made at least 1000 edits in the article, category or template namespace (i.e. talk page, blog and forum contributions do not count).
- You have been continuously active at this wiki for at least three months.
- You have not made a failed administrator request in the past two months. This does not include requests which were closed because you did not meet the formal requirements.
- You have held the position of patroller, or combined position of patroller/moderator, for a minimum of two months.
Making the request
If you meet the requirements above and want to become an administrator, moderator or chat moderator you need to start a thread in Forum:Wiki discussion titled Chat Moderator Request – [your username], "Moderator Request - [your username]" or "Adminship Request - [your username]". In this thread, you should describe why you would like to become a moderator or admin and what your major contributions have been thus far.
For the position of chat moderator, you also need – in addition to the edit and activity requirement – an endorsement from an active administrator. This is as simple as an active administrator having openly supported your prospect of applying and will sign your application when it’s posted on the fora. An unsigned application for chat moderator will not be passed.
When your application has been posted, Nukapedia's community will be able to discuss whether or not you should be made moderator or admin over a timespan of at least one week (or more in case of controversy). The final decision will be up to the bureaucrat(s) after the community has had its say.
In difference to the other posts, patroller rights need no community vote. If you wish to apply for patroller, and you meet the requirements, just write an application and leave it on a bureaucrat's talk page. They will then decide whether you have earned patroller rights or not.
