The Elder Scrolls Wiki Staff are users granted the abilities needed, and given the responsibility to keep the wiki running smoothly. The term "staff" is generally used to refer to the collective of the following groups:
Administrators (or Sysops) are editors with extended rights that help them contribute to and modify the site. All administrators are promoted by a Bureaucrat or a member of Wikia Staff, and are normally promoted for life, although they have the right to decline their position, or step down at any time. Administrators are also expected to help other users when necessary and guide or correct them when necessary. See Administrators for more information.
Patrollers are trusted editors granted the rollback tool to keep the wiki free of any vandalism and the custodian tool. With a single click, they can revert edits. Patrollers must be nominated into their positions by an admin. Only bureaucrats are able to grant their rollback rights.
All TESWiki's patrollers also receive channel operator status on our IRC channel and chat moderator rights on Wikia Chat.
See Patrollers for more information.
Forum Moderators are wiki users who keep watch over the forums by making sure topics are posted in the correct forum, removing inappropriate threads, editing out image violations, helping users by answering questions, and various other tasks. Users who are interested in becoming a forum moderator and who meet the requirements may submit an application requesting to become a forum moderator. Forum moderators are given rollback user-rights, which will allow them to edit other users comments.
Chat Moderators are wiki users who keep watch over the chat room ensuring that users are following the chat guidelines. They have the power to kick and ban users from chat.
See Chat Moderators for more information.
Members of the News Team are users who have stood out from the crowd in terms of writing news blogs, to inform the community of updates to the series' progression. Their blog posts show up on the main page when tagged with the correct category. Some Patrollers are also members of the News Team.
All members of the News Team also receive channel half-operator status on our IRC channel.
See News Team for more information.
IRC mods are trusted members of the wiki's IRC channel. They have the power to kick, ban, and mute other channel members.
See TES:IRC#Channel staff for a list of these users.
Bots carry out tasks when instructed by their operators to do so. These tasks are generally very repetitive, and would normally not be done, due to their 'boring' nature.
Most users on this page have links to their usernames highlighted, in order for these names of importance to 'stand out from the crowd' more efficiently.
