This page documents official Policy on GTA Wiki. It concerns standards that all users should follow.
When editing this page, please ensure that your revision reflects consensus. When in doubt, discuss first on the talk page.
Staff (Moderators, Administrators and Managers) are users on Grand Theft Wiki with the responsibility to keep the wiki running smoothly. The main job of all Staff is to help users, so don't hesitate to ask a member of Staff if you have any problems or questions.
Certain Staff also have various rights, administrative tools and authority over the wiki. There are three levels of Staff on Grand Theft Wiki. No users other than the ones mentioned here have any administrative privileges or decision-making authority.
Moderators are users on Grand Theft Wiki who have been trusted with additional tools to keep the Wiki clean. Moderators are trusted helpers, rather than having "power" or "authority" over other users. Moderators are always experienced editors, so should be able to help you if you have any questions.
Administrators (Admins or SysOps) are members of Staff with tools and authority to solve disputes and keep the wiki running smoothly. Administrators are still just editors of the wiki, and the main part of their job is the help other users; but they enforce the policy of Grand Theft Wiki, and occasionally need to step in and use their additional tools to solve
Managers (Bureaucrats) are the users that steer Grand Theft Wiki. They have authority in any disputes, and can approve large-scale changes to the wiki. As well as being full Administrators, Managers can also promote other users to staff.
There are also Wikia Staff, Janitors and Wikia Helpers who have administrative privileges in all Wikia wikis. These users are not managed by Grand Theft Wiki, although they should still operate within GTW policy.
The main Wikia Staff that work with Grand Theft Wiki are:
- w:User:Angies - Community issues
- User:Kirkburn - Technical issues
- w:User:TOR - Import & migration issues
- User:Sannse - Wikia policy enforcement
