User Rights Guide

This guide explains everything about user rights on the Screamer Wiki.

What are admins?

Admins are trusted users that work to keep Screamer Wiki up to quality. Administrators have access to almost all tools on the wiki.

What are helpers?

Helpers are trusted users that are halfway between admins and normal users. Helpers have access to tools to help moderate the wiki; these tools include rolling back edits, deleting and undeleting pages, and deleting comments. Helpers are supposed to enforce the rules as written. Power-tripping is grounds for immediate expulsion from the Screamer Wiki staff team.

Anyone that was given rights in the past (such as AllPageAccess) would become a helper.

How do I become helper?

Originally, users would get rights automatically depending on how much they edited. As the wiki continues to grow and to help prevent bad actors from getting rights, you must now apply to become a helper. You can do that by contacting Angeleno.

To become a helper you must

  • Treat others with gracious professionalism.
  • Be able to read and write in English at a native level.
  • Be at least 13 years old.
  • Have an account that is at least 30 days old.
    • The "at least 30 days old" portion of this policy is waived if you had an account on the forums or Discord for more than 30 days. You still must have a wiki account to become helper.
  • Have an account on Screamer Forums and/or Discord.
  • Be in good standing with the Screamer Wiki community.
  • Have a computer.

To retain your user rights, you must be active on the wiki - don't forget to contribute every now and then!

How are helpers and admins supposed to enforce the rules?

Helpers and administrators are to moderate in accordance to the rules. Bans should be short, as long as the content the user would be getting banned for is not excessive spam, illegal content, or ban evasion.

Tips and Tricks

  • Be cool to other users. Admins are supposed to enforce the Rules, but without being too harsh!
  • Invite users to the wiki. By recruiting contributors, you are helping the community grow even further!
  • Assume good faith. Most users that contribute to the wiki are trying to help, not hurt!

Thank You for reading!

Other Notes

User rights may be revoked at any time for a certain reason or no reason at all, as long as such removal was not because of a protected class as determined by the state of California.
