AnimalJam Groups Wiki Rights Requests
If you'd like to request for rights on this wiki, you're in the right place. AJCW follows a system on earning rights and is pretty simple. Everyone in the community gets a say and a vote.
Asking for Rights
Review which rights you would like to recieve below, make sure you understand the basics and the concept of the rights. You have to be sure that you'll use these rights in your best way possible in supporting the wiki. Keep in mind that requests for certain rights are constantly open or closed so please be aware of which rights are available. Earning rights means you're a member of AJCW staff, so please act responsibly.
While anyone can apply for rights if they meet the requirements, staff withholds the right to go through your contributions, check to see if you're capable of being a staff member, and may decline or approve your entry form.
You can view how many mainspace edits you have by searching your user name in the edit count function.
Rights Revamps are held every 4 months. They are often found in the News and Announcements thread and are held by admins. The revamps usually last a week before closing. The community votes on whether to -(support) or -(oppose) a user remaining with their current rights. Usually, staff spots are open after and promotions are held, but otherwise, promotions are held whenever it's needed.
Usually highly trusted and experienced users recieve the bureaucrat rights. It is rare for someone to be granted these rights.
Bureaucrats are one step higher than administrators, they have the ability to give other rights to users and demote rights from other users. They also can right themselves. These rights are the hardest to earn, since they cannot be demoted by another user. This position is usually only given to users who have consistently demonstrated dedication to the wiki and common sense when dealing with day to day matters on the wiki. The bureaucrat has to demote themself if voted for demotion on a Rights Revamp.

Like stated in Bureaucrats, it is difficult to earn these rights. Being a trusted user and a community contributer is one way you can earn these rights. It is rare that someone is granted these rights.
Admins have the most abilities out of all of the staff. They can lock (protect) pages in three levels - available for all to edit, available for just registered users to edit, and restricting editing to only other administrators. Administrators are able to access Theme Designer and change the colors, wiki wordmark, background image, and favicon. Admins can also block users - therefore earning the responsibility of keeping the wiki safe from vandilism and users who break the rules. They can also edit the MediaWiki page.

There are 2 types of moderators. Content moderators and discussion moderators. Each type of moderator have a specific job. Moderators are trusted users who have experience with page monitoring.
Content Moderators keep the wiki's pages organized and cleaned up. They remove spam and vandalism, close threads, delete comments, message wall threads, and respond to specific complaints. They are also granted rollback rights (Users with the "rollback" tool are able to undo bad edits with one click, by using the rollback link on diff pages, user contributions list, or the list of recent changes.) in order to efficiently remove vandalism. They have the duty of reporting vandalizing users to admins.
The color code for content mods is red.
A Discussion Moderator's job is to look after threads. Their job consists of dealing with inactive threads, closing/re-opening threads, moderating chat, deleting blog and article comments, managing forum boards, highlight/unhighlight threads, and removing/restoring threads from other users. Discussions Moderators are users who have additional tools available to manage conversations in various features across the community where users are having social discussions.
The color code for discussion mods is lavender.

Chat Moderator rights are available to anyone who is willing to help monitor chat. The staff is constantly in need of more chat moderators, due to more and more misbehaving users in chat.
Chat Moderators have to be active in chat. They are granted rights that give them the ability to kick and ban users from chat. They have the responsibility of keeping the chat safe and free from users that break the rules.
