The Wikitubia staff consists of five groups: Bureaucrats, Administrators, Content Moderators, Discussions Moderators, and Rollbackers.

  • Bureaucrats have the same jobs and abilities as an administrator, along with the ability to promote users to staff groups. Each bureaucrat represent one of three groups: Moderation, Content, and Discussions, which are symbolic and for representation for each group of Wikitubia.
  • Administrators have the abilities of content Moderators and discussions Moderators, while also having additional rights of being able to block or ban users and edit the wiki interface.
  • Content Moderators are users who can delete/revive pages and edit locked pages, as well as having the rights of rollbackers and some rights of discussions Moderators.
  • Discussions Moderators are users who have the ability to delete or lock discussions, comments, and message wall posts.
  • Rollbackers are users who are given the rollback right which allows them to revert edits by a user.

Community Manager

The community manager (previously wiki representative) title represents Fandom staff members who aid wikis and communities in their management. A community manager isn't really a staff member here on Wikitubia, and are more of a Fandom staff member who keeps the admins informed on what's going on in Fandom as well as if the wiki is meeting standards. Here is Wikitubia's community manager:

Amount of staff

The required amount of staff varies for each user groups, and can occasionally change. Here is how many users can be staff at a time for each user groups:

  • Bureaucrats = 3
  • Administrators = 4-8 (at least 2 discussions administrators and at least 2 content administrators)
  • Content Moderators = 4-8
  • Discussions Moderators = 4-8
  • Rollbackers = 4-8

Staff roles

Rollbacker roles

Rollbackers can undo edits in one click. Regularly, undoing an edit will take multiple clicks, but with rollback, it will automatically undo recent edited user's edit in one button. Rollbackers are the lowest ranking staff position and have the responsibility to help fight against vandalism, as well as having useful contributions.

Requirements for becoming a rollbacker:

  • Having been on Wikitubia for 30 days or more.
  • Having an active editing status (active equates to editing for 6 days out of the last 10 days).
  • Having over 500 edits.
  • Not having a validated block in the last year or having 2 or more validated blocks in total, unless if you were ban pardoned.
  • Not having a validated warning in the last 60 days.

If there is a shortage of rollbackers, the administration can have the possibility to open rollbacker applications for users who do not currently meet the requirements to be able to apply for the position.

Discussions Moderator roles

Discussions Moderators are users who monitor the discussions to make sure the rules are being followed. Here are some of their main user rights are:

  • Removing/restoring messages on message walls.
  • Editing and deleting article comments.
  • Deleting, restoring, and locking discussions posts and replies.
  • Locking page comment sections.

Requirements for becoming a discussions Moderator:

  • Having been on Wikitubia for 60 days or more.
  • Having an active posting status (active equates to posting for 6 days out of the last 10 days).
  • Having over 1,000 posts.
  • Not having a validated block in the last year or having 2 or more validated blocks in total, unless ban pardoned.
  • Not having a validated warning in the last 60 days.

If there is a shortage of discussions Moderators, the administration can have the possibility to open discussions Moderator applications for users who do not currently meet the requirements to be able to apply for the position.

Content Moderator roles

Content Moderators are trusted to remove any profanity, spam, or anything else harmful towards Wikitubia, and are trusted to delete pages that don't follow the Wikitubia rules. Their main user rights are:

  • Editing fully protected pages.
  • Deleting or undeleting pages or files.
  • Editing protected files.
  • Renaming files.
  • Protecting/unprotecting pages.

Additionally, content Moderators have all the abilities of rollbackers and some abilities of discussion Moderators.

Requirements for becoming a content Moderator:

  • Having been a rollbacker for 60 days or more.
  • Having an active editing status (active equates to editing for 6 days out of the last 10 days).
  • Having over 2,000 edits.

If there is a shortage of content Moderators, the administration has the possibility to promote a rollbacker to the position who may not meet all the requirements, with the approval of a majority of present administrators.

Administrator roles

Administrators are trusted users who are in charge of administrating the wiki. Their main user rights are:

  • Having access to edit wiki code.
  • Blocking/unblocking users and their user IDs.
  • Having the ability to promote users to discussions Moderator and rollbacker.

Additionally, administrators have all the abilities of content Moderators and discussions Moderators.

Requirements for becoming a content administrator:

  • Having been a content Moderator for 90 days or more.
  • Having an active editing status (active equates to editing for 6 days out of the last 10 days).
  • Having over 5,000 edits.

  • Having been a discussions Moderator for 90 days or more.
  • Having an active posting status (active equates to posting for 6 days out of the last 10 days).
  • Having over 5,000 posts.

If there is a shortage of administrators, the administration has the possibility to promote a content Moderator or discussions Moderator to the position who may not meet all the requirements, with the approval of a majority of present administrators.

Content and Discussions Administrators

The difference between the status of being a content administrator and a discussions administrator is usually if the admin was promoted to admin from being a content Moderator, they would be considered a content administrator as they were promoted from a content role, and if they were promoted from being a discussions Moderator, they would be considered a discussions administrator as they were promoted from a discussions role.

If a user had both discussions and content Moderator rights, they would be considered both a content and discussions administrator.

The different status help determine their staff page activity status as well as their demotion rules. With the staff page activity status, However, if an admin wants to they can switch their status roles around, they are able to do so, but they must have over 1,000 posts or 500 edits in their respective category, depending on which one they would like to be a part of.

If an administrator goes 60 days without editing and has the content role they will lose it, and if an admin goes 60 days without posting with the discussions role they will lose their discussions status.

Bureaucrat roles

Bureaucrat rights are the highest rights you can get on Wikitubia. Bureaucrats have all the user rights of an administrator with the addition of being able to promote users to rollbackers, discussions Moderators, content Moderators, administrators, and bureaucrats.

Since bureaucrat rights are the highest ranking rights, the amount of people being able to be one is very limited, but in order to become one, you must be an administrator on Wikitubia, which the certain type depending on the bureaucrat who is departing.

For information on the bureaucrat vacancy process, go here.

Wiki Voting

Discussions and votes are held privately between certain staff members who are on Wikitubia's Discord server to make decisions on a variety of issues relating to Wikitubia. Currently, there are 2 types of wiki voting:

  • Staff voting is for discussions and votes to be held for issues on Wikitubia, that includes all staff members (as well as the wiki representative). The intention of this category is to mainly resolve conflicts and make decisions on important things relating to the wiki. Discussions and votes in this category can be broad and are not required to follow the outcome.
  • Admin voting is specifically for voting on subjects established as administrators only, such as removing a users rights, staff reinstatements, and tie-breaker votes for the bureaucrat vacancy process.

For these, a discussion occurs for a day for the proposition in place, and once that is done, then a vote for the proposition will last another day. If a staff member is not in Wikitubia's Discord server, they will be messaged on their message wall about what they would vote on it, and their vote would be counted, regardless if it is not actually counted on the servers reactions.

Demotion

In order for a staff member to be automatically demoted from their rights, they must have not edited in 60 days (for rollbackers, content Moderators, and content administrators) or not made a discussions post in 60 days (discussions Moderators and discussions administrators). This does not apply to the bureaucratic role.

An alternative way for a staff member to lose their rights is if a staff member has broken one of the rules on Wikitubia or if they have not been using their rights properly. If this is the case, administrators could vote on demoting them from their user rights. If the vote wins a majority approval from all present administrators, their rights will be removed. If the administration wishes to do the same for a bureaucrat, they could remove their rights if 3/4 of all present administrators approve of it.

If a staff member does something to warrant a block or ban, they would not face those consequences specified in the rules, unless they are removed from or leave their position as staff.

Reinstatement

If for whatever reason, a former staff member wants to regain their rights, they would have to edit for 6 consecutive days for a content staff position, or post in the discussions for 6 consecutive days for a discussions staff position, and then the administrators would have a vote on whether or not to reinstate them. There would also have to be enough open space for the staff position in order to be reinstated to the respective staff group. This does not apply for someone wanting to be reinstated as a bureaucrat.

If a vote to reinstate a user fails, they cannot go through the reinstatement process for the specific staff group in which they went through the reinstatement process for another 6 months (180 days).

If a former staff member would like to be reinstated on a different account from their original one, they can do so with the same procedure.

Staff applications

Usually, there are no ways to apply to become staff, however, in the occasion in which there is a rollbacker or discussions Moderator shortage, there could be a Google Forms released for all users who want to apply for the rights, regardless of if they meet the regular promotion requirements for the role that is lacking members. The form would be available for a period of time, usually 3 days, and at the end one user (or as many is needed to fill the shortage) would be selected to fill the vacancy by the Head of Moderation, and with the approval of a majority vote of present administrators, would be promoted.

However, it is not a requirement for the administration to pick a user at the time and could very well conclude the applications with no user selected, especially in the event of a user being promoted who qualifies and fills the shortage, leaving no use for the form to be open any longer.
