TestWiki:Administrators

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Administrators are the primary user group for testing the administrator toolkit. It is granted, upon request (usually at TestWiki:Request permissions), to any registered user who has logged in. It can also be requested on the user talk page of any recently active bureaucrat.

The administrator permission has most of the same user group rights as an administrator on most other projects. Though we use a lot of common sense here and ask that all administrators and registered users do the same, prospective or new administrators are encouraged to read the official policies listed at TestWiki:Policies (especially TestWiki:Main policy). In general terms, this means undoing or otherwise reverting any tests you do and performing test blocks on either (a) User:Example (or User:Example2 and User:Example3) or (b) yourself. If you do wish to perform a test block on another user, a best practice, which you are strongly encouraged to practice here on Public Test Wiki is to obtain their consent, in writing and preferably on-wiki in advance.
