Administrators (also known as "admins" or "sysops") are trusted users, who are generally chosen by the community. They have strong tools to fight against vandalism with rollback, and alter pages and files which is similar to custodians. In addition, they can block users who seriously violate rules and make some site-wide changes (e.g. site background and site logo).

What are the rights of admins?

Gears.png Reminders to admins:
For guiding, see Dont Starve Wiki:Administrators guide for a guide on using admin functions.
Also, see Rollback Remarks for the usage of rollback.

  • Deleting and undeleting pages, page histories, and uploaded files.
  • Move pages and files
  • Locking (protecting) a page so it cannot be edited or renamed by users without admin rights or autoconfirmed status.
  • Blocking IP addresses or user names from editing.
  • Grant and revoke both the custodian and rollback rights.
  • Edit the wiki's skin and format.
  • Edit whitelisted MediaWiki pages.
  • Protecting pages by setting limiting users to edit pages.

What are the expectations of admins?

Even a King is bound to the board.


Administrators should behave well and lead by example. Remember, with great power comes great responsibility.

  1. Being an admin is not a trophy. You only get the tools that deal with issues easier.
  2. Current members of custodians.
  3. Require extreme care and judgement when using bureaucrat/admin/bot tools
  4. Be fair and patient when treating matters.
  5. Be friendly and answer any inquiries.
  6. Be respectful and civil when making comments on articles, posts and blogs.
  7. Have a superior understanding on every aspect of the wiki.
  8. Have a huge contribution to the wiki.
  9. Never involve in major vandalism or bans.

How to revoke an administrator?

Administrator status can only be removed by Wiki Staff, Bureaucrats, or by the admin themselves.

There are 3 situations to remove an admin:

  1. Inactivity - administrators that have no edits or log actions for at least 6 months may be subject to procedural removal.
    1. Inactive admins can make a request to regain adminship if they have been actively participating for 2 weeks.
  2. Self-resignation
  3. Misbehaviour - this includes the abuse of power, serious failure to meet expectation, or community consensus reached to remove such administrator.
