Interface administrators are users that have the ability to edit in the MediaWiki: namespace on this wiki, which is the namespace of the wiki that controls certain aspects of the wiki user interface (i.e., the sidebar, the footer, links on special pages, and the like). They also have the ability to edit other users' JavaScript and CSS files; however, in practice, this is rarely done, and might only be done where a new user has requested assistance with installing a user script, for example.

Appointment[edit source]

Interface administrators are appointed locally by any bureaucrat.

Requests for interface administrator should, ideally, be made at Meta:Administrators' noticeboard, but may also be requested on the user talk page of any bureaucrat.

Eligibility[edit source]

To be eligible for the interface administrator user group right, the requesting user must ensure that they:

  • Have a clear and specific purpose for requesting the right;
  • Already hold one (or more) advanced user rights such as wiki creator, rollbacker, global sysop, or other user group rights that demonstrate that they are trustworthy;
  • Have no recent history of blocks or other sanctions on Meta (the granting bureaucrat has some discretion here in what is considered recent); and
  • Have confirmed, in writing, that they have a strong password on their user account

Revocation[edit source]

Any administrator or bureaucrat can revoke the rights from a user if the user has:

  • Shown, or otherwise given indication of, their user account, computer, and related technology having been compromised; or,
  • Engaged in vandalism in restricted namespaces or on restricted pages

For security purposes, interface administrator may also be removed by any administrator or bureaucrat, on their own or following a request for removal at Meta:Administrators' noticeboard, from any user who has not made any log actions or edits on Meta in the past 30 days. When the user returns and still has a need for the tool, they can re-request it at Meta:Administrators' noticeboard.
