Bureaucrats are one level 'up' from administrators. Bureaucrats only have the ability to manipulate user rights, as well as block/unblock users. That means they can revoke and block any administrators if it is necessary. They can also appoint new bureaucrats and revoke their own. In general, bureaucrats are given admin rights in order to be effective in the wiki.

What are the expectation of bureaucrats?

Although bureaucrats share similar expectations with administrators, since bureaucrats are the leaders of the wiki, therefore these standards are applied in a stricter term.

  1. Current members of administrators.
  2. Require extreme care and judgement when using bureaucrat/admin/bot tools
  3. Be fair and patient when treating matters.
  4. Be friendly and answer any inquiries.
  5. Be respectful and civil when making comments on articles, posts and blogs.
  6. Have a superior understanding on every aspect of the wiki.
  7. Have a huge contribution to the wiki.
  8. Never involve in a major vandalism or bans.

How to revoke a bureaucrat?

Bureaucrat status can only be removed by Wiki Staff, or by themselves.

Please contact Gamepedia staff if bureaucrats are abusing their power, or seriously fail the expectation of bureacrats. Only Wiki Staff can remove the right of bureaucrat from a user as they have full access to all Wikis. They will be shown in Special:Listusers/staff on any wiki.

If there are no active administrators or bureaucrats in the wiki, a user can "claim the wiki" and become a Wiki guardian.

Who are this wiki's bureaucrat?

For a list of current rollback generated by the system, see Special:ListUsers/bureaucrat.

Some bureaucrats will tag themselves with {{bureaucrat}} on their userpage and message wall greetings.
