Etiquette

This page is a list of administrators (sometimes called admins or sysops).

Admins can perform a few special tasks such as editing pages in the MediaWiki: namespace (system messages), blocking users, deleting and protecting pages, and granting other users certain rights. They have no extra editorial authority, however. All admin actions are governed by Wikinews policies. Statistics on these activities are here.

You can view previous requests in the archive, where you can also see some common questions, comments and objections made during the process.
