Animal Crossing Wiki

Different users have access to different functions of the site. While anyone can do most things on the site, including reading and editing, administrators can access a few additional functions. Administrators can block users, edit highly technical areas of the wiki, among other utilities.

Administrators play an important role in helping keep the wiki running smoothly. Senior administrators can also gain bureaucrat rights if they are experienced enough.

What can administrators not do?

Administrators should not use their administrator powers to settle editing disputes; for example, to lock a page on a version they prefer in an editing dispute that is not vandalism. Administrator powers should be used to help keep the wiki clear of vandalism, spam, and users who make malicious edits, but not for simple disagreements between users acting in good faith. Ideally an administrator should not be considered "in charge." The ideal admin is simply someone who is trusted to have a few extra buttons and to use them for the benefit of the wiki. Remember, being an administrator is no big deal.

No administrator available

In case, there is no administrator active during a vandal attack or any kind of problem. Make sure to contact Wikia Staff, VSTF, or a Helper.

The Volunteer Spam Task Force (VSTF) is a group of Wikia users who have volunteered to help keep Wikia clear and free of spam and vandalism. The group is made up of users who act in the interest of keeping Wikia clean of vandalism and spam, and they are given additional user rights that allow them to detect, delete, and block these spam edits and users. You can report spam on the VSTF Wiki.
