Will someone please tell me what the "chances" things are that are under the light system? I'm confused. Explorer 767 (This is your Co-Webmaster speaking!) 04:18, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

I think we have enough sysops here. So many users from the CP Wiki come here and try to be sysops and beurocrats when they barely have any edits! We have too many kings and not enough servants, If you see what I'm saying.

I've made more edits than POGOPUNK32 but they're requesting to be a bureaucrat. I think I'll request to be one too. --MetalmanagerSig.jpg Talk to me! Please! I'm lonely... 12:21, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

In my opinion, edit count is not that much of a big issue, but it's just a minor reference. Skill, determination and devotion to this wiki are probably the only things that truely matter. File:PogoPunk32.png (Talk to me!)

Hey! Austin8310 here. I edits! Can I be a rollback or lower? Austin8310

43 only? Dude, I think rollbacks oughta have, like, between 200-300 edits. Try to get a few more edits, then you can request.

Also, rollback is probably the lowest admin position there is.

Yours "Falsely", Explorer 767 (This is your Co-Webmaster speaking!) View this template 21:35, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Here are the positions (by order)

  • User (either IP Adress or Autoconfirmed User)
  • Autoconfirmed user
  • Rollback
  • Sysop
  • Bureaucrat
  • Then staff, helper, janitor, etc.

It's protected to registered user level, so only accounts on the wiki may apply. File:PogoPunk32.png (Talk to me!) 21:36, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Should we put the dates about when the votings are over and whether you become a admin or not? --The Leader 16:28, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

A message to Bugzy....[edit]

If you're reading this please apply for Sysopship before time runs out. You'd be awsome at it. --Speeddasher

Bugzy said he doesn;t want it. He prefers pure rollback. I promoted him twice, once to test powers and for walri attacks, and requested a demotion all the time. -- Zapwire Δ The dark side of the moon   22:07, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

I can't vote[edit]

'Cos someone protected the page. The ADMIN REQUESTS page. Who did that?--NotAnEditor 11:27, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Yiu need more edits for acception. -- Zapwire Δ The dark side of the moon   11:28, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

I can't VOTE!!!--NotAnEditor 10:51, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

You need edits for confirmation of voting. -- Zapwire Δ The dark side of the moon   12:05, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, why are you talking about Edits? It's how long you've had this account that is checked, not your Edit Count.See? ANd anyway, why can't I vote? I have an OK Edit Count on another account, but that account is BANNED so I can't vote.--NotAnEditor 18:30, 18 July 2009 (UTC)


Hi there, I am not going to vote, I just want to say something to everyone applying for rollback. Only apply for rollback if you are going to help the wiki get rid of vandalism. I think Explorer has already established this somewhat, so I ask for him to get the word out. This doesn't mean give up on becoming an admin, users should be able to apply for sysop without being a rollback - so instead of applying for rollback first and then sysop, apply for sysop if you think you have enough edits or dedication. Remember, there is no ranking system. And no, this isn't a way to de-fanonise this wiki, I just want to raise the hopes up for users that want to become sysops, and I am not trying to reduce the amount of sysops - on the contrary in fact. --Tigernose Talk 22:43, April 6, 2010 (UTC)

RIGHTS ARE RANKS HERE, WERE NOT "SOME OTHER WIKI" WERE THE CLUB PENGUIN FANON WIKI!-Quote form Turtleshroom ----I am Corai. (Fear me, mortal.) 22:44, April 6, 2010 (UTC)

Again I am not trying to make you like another wiki. This is all but doing that. I'm trying to be benificial even, I'm telling users to stop applying for rollback, and start applying for sysop if they meet the criteria. If someone wants to be a sysop, it's a lot faster than becoming a rollback first. Just saying. Also, Explorer even said this. --Tigernose Talk 22:49, April 6, 2010 (UTC)

I know, I had a urge to quote TS. ----I am Corai. (Fear me, mortal.) 18:29, April 10, 2010 (UTC)

I'm the writer of the UnBoss bill, Dancing Penguin. The RfA is closed until July 4. (Liberation day. It's a joke, get it?) Anyway, yeah.--Austin8310-HIYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAAA! 12:56, June 13, 2010 (UTC)

I don't understand Dancing Penguin 13:52, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
Look, I WROTE IT. I said what it did. The RfA opens on July 4, k? --Austin8310-HIYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAAA! 17:24, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
The RfA should open when the users mentioned in the UnBOSS bill are demoted by staff (which hasn't happened yet). A list is in project:BOSS. Dancing Penguin 23:36, July 2, 2010 (UTC)

Who opened this?[edit]

Why is the RfA open? We already have enough sysops and crats, so why is the RfA open? And don't tell me it's open because the old government is dissolved. That doesn't mean you can throw all our policies and previous rules out! Yours Truly, Explorer 767 (Turtle King, Propeller Lord. Together they dominate the universe.)

I agree, I was reinstated and then RS was promoted (and demoted), Austin was, Dan was promoted to Bcrat while Akbaboy, Swiss Ninja and 12yz12ab requests too! It's madness! --Pyro Sentryani.gif Spy sappin' mah sentry! sentry down! 17:54, August 14, 2010 (UTC)
TurtleShroom did it.  ZoneKill  T C E   17:56, August 14, 2010 (UTC)


If there are two "slots" open, then that means there is room for 2 new admins to be picked. So two "slots" but only one person getting picked is kind of illogical :S (It would be 1 slot/1 picked or 2 slots/2 picked). Also can anyone add themselves to the RfA? I'm not, but i'm just curious. Last thing, can I add a comments section to bro's RfA? Cp kid Wanna Talk? 16:44, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

Hmmm. I saw it more of a contest. --Gottfried Pondering.pngUser:Swiss Ninja Clovis Hochstadt Performing.png (My Talk Page) 16:48, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

How are we determining who wins? The one with the most positive votes? --FlagCanada.png Bro Talk to me! 21:42, 27 May 2013 (UTC)

Uh yeah, I guess. Or maybe not... --ARB of RUSSIA!!! (Well technically, I live in the Philippines, but who's counting?) 03:39, 28 May 2013 (UTC)


Are rollback slots currently open ? If not, when will slots be open ? User:Slenderman

Dunno. Depends. --Rogue's on it! Cartoon Girl.jpeg I don't need rescuing. 12:26, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
Not as of now. --CAN'DUH Bro Talk to me! OH YEEEEEEAH 12:45, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

Alright inform me as soon there are slots available. And what's the difference between sysop and rollback ? Does sysop exist now ? Is there any other admin position beside bureaucrats, administrators, rollbacks and sysops ? User:Slenderman

Dunno for all of that. --Rogue's on it! Cartoon Girl.jpeg I don't need rescuing. 12:06, 11 September 2013 (UTC)
Sysop is the old name for Admin. Patroller is the old name for Rollback. So, in a nutshell, no. --Singapore flag.gif Nicktang10 (my talk page) 12:20, 11 September 2013 (UTC)
Sysop isn't the old name, it's the name referenced to in MediaWiki coding because apparently, administrator is too long and confusing for them. --Proud to be Estonian! People Like Us We gotta keep together! 11:13, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

Speaking of rollback positions, I thought that according to TS that a wiki can never have enough rollbacks? Plus, rollback is just... rollback, the downgrade of patroller since you can't delete pages with rollback. So technically, patroller isn't the same as rollback, so the name shouldn't be used the same :S (patroller is just a discontinued user right). CKSig.pngWannaTalk? 10:13, 25 October 2013 (UTC)


Apparently, what do "rollbacks" do? I'm interested. Penguinpuffdude Hiking.pngWe're going to crash land into SPRING! 00:34, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

Rollbacks have the ability to undo several edits made by a single user on an article at once, typically for combating vandalism. In all honestly it's a glorified rollback button. --User:EDFan12345 01:21, 14 February 2017 (UTC)
You mean glorified undo button? ULSK12TalkContribsBATCHIRIMINAAAAAA I WANT TO BE SPECIAL.jpg 13:59, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

Probably just apply anyway (even though I can't see myself as an admin rip), but what powers do Admins have? Thanks in advance, Penguinpuffdude BOY-SCOUT IS THE FAN'S FAVOURITE WORD! It's time for a chat, no? 00:42, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

In terms of function, admins can delete pages, protect pages and edit any protected page including MediaWiki pages, promote rollbacks and admins, demote rollbacks, block/unblock users, and they also get all the powers rollbacks and importers have. Bureaucrats are basically the same, except they can promote other bureaucrats and demote admins. Of course, that doesn't touch on the authority and responsibilities admins have, which varies from wiki to wiki. --Chill57181 GingerbreadManPin.PNG (Talk - Contributions - My Articles) 00:49, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
You can see what every user group can do here --User:EDFan12345Christmas Bell Pin.PNG 01:14, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

Waitaminute, if the admin requests are closed, does it mean users can't apply for adminship, but they can still vote, amiright? Penguinpuffdude BOY-SCOUT IS THE FAN'S FAVOURITE WORD! It's time for a chat, no? 05:50, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Yes, they can still vote. --Penstubal (Talk) (Edits) 10:31, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
