Administrator duties

Administrators are encouraged (but not required) to do the following;

  • Edit patrols on a regular-basis
  • Ban spambots and revert their edits.
  • Protect/un-protect pages when appropriate.
  • Finding and deleting unnecessary pages (Special:UncategorizedPages helps)
    • Note unnecessary pages are mostly just certain misspellings (Common ones may be useful to improve searches), spam and non-game related content. Not short/unfinished pages you deem unimportant. Short pages should be tagged with help improve, or redirected to a more complete related page. Also use the "What links here" tool to verify a page is not in use, and clear the links to it before you delete it if you are sure it's unnecessary.
  • Fixing Double-redirects time to time (Special:DoubleRedirects)
