The Final Fantasy Wiki maintains a select number of users who have earned the trust needed to run the Wiki. These users, known as the "staff", are awarded with certain capabilities, which in turn give them more responsibility towards the administration and maintenance of the Wiki. Such positions are awarded to those who continually show that they are willing to create and write in-depth articles, cover a scope of a project, and/or revert vandalism.

Below is a list of staff based on responsibility and right, included with a trivial reason for their rights. Please note that the reason may not be their only sole contribution to the FFWiki. A Staff member will be indicated with a busy cactuar (Cactuar) on their userpage. Questions and requests to staff can be asked at the Staff Noticeboard.

AdministratorsEdit

Administrators are Final Fantasy Wiki users who have sysopSystem Operator rights. While they do not own the Wiki and are equal to other users in terms of editorial responsibility, they are entrusted with several performance and security features to help ensure the smooth-running of the Wiki. Users may seek them out to perform maintenance to the FFWiki, and for advice and information.

BureaucratEdit

These users are able to grant Bureaucrat, Sysop and Moderator rights to other users.

InactiveEdit

SysopEdit

These users are able to perform protection and deletion of pages and files, as well as blocking vandals' editing rights. They also have all abilities granted to Designers and Moderators.

InactiveEdit

ModeratorsEdit

Moderators are users who have been granted additional rights by bureaucrats. While they are equal to other users in terms of editorial responsibility, they are especially trusted to keep articles safe from vandalism and bad-faith edits. In particular, users who show dedication to the wiki are usually made moderators, because their status gives them abilities that facilitate heavy-duty editing, but could be misused by newcomers. These abilities are Rollback, the ability to move any number of articles without being halted by spam restrictions, the ability to move files to new names, the ability to suppress redirects when moving a page, and the ability to move over a redirect.

AcknowledgmentEdit

While they are not Staff per se, these users are acknowledged for their major contributions to certain topic scopes and may or may not choose to have the busy cactuar at the top of their userpage.

DesignersEdit

Designers are users who have been given the rights to access the MediaWiki namespace, though no other sysop rights. While not necessarily a step in the 'progression', the Designer right is more a responsibility of the user, and trust to break and fix the fundamentals of the wiki (although it is also a convenience right).

  • JBed: Long-standing user who serves as wiki technician, fluent in every language used.

BotsEdit

Bots are not actual users, but they are user accounts that are operated by users. Bots are given both the Sysop and Bot flag; the former is used only to edit protected pages (as bots cannot carry out sysop tasks), while the latter hides the bot's edits from the RecentChanges by default. Bots are generally used to make rapid fixes to multiple changes, as well as maintenance. They can be operated either using the AutoWikiBrowser program, or pywikibot scripts.

Bot accountEdit

The FFWiki makes all its edits through a single bot account operated by multiple users.

Intangir Bot


  • Intangir Bot - The FFWiki's official bot account, operated by any user with access, as well as operating server-side for automation.

OperatorsEdit

All operators use the bot to perform tasks that are requested by users.
