Becoming an administrator
For a user to become an administrator, someone with bureaucrat rights must grant the user administrator rights. To request them, you may simply ask on the Community Portal, ask on the Forums or you can ask a bureaucrat directly on their talk page.
If there are no active bureaucrats, use the "Requests for adminship" page to nominate users to become admins or bureaucrats. Once a community decision has been reached (or if there is no active community to debate the decision), please leave a message at the wiki adoption requests page and Wikia Staff can provide the rights.
These sets of users are those who hold specific extra abilities on the wiki, although not to the level of admins.
