Staff on the Final Fantasy Wiki are users with higher user access levels. They are awarded their position both in recognition of their work, and out of trust for their ability to use to the tools well for the moderation and maintenance of the wiki. All staff members are accountable to the Final Fantasy Wiki's community standards.
Below is a list of staff by their user access level, including what they can be contacted for. Staff members will also be indicated with a busy cactuar () on their userpage. Questions and requests to staff can be asked at the Discord, or the Staff Noticeboard. To nominate a user to the Staff, head to the Requests for Promotion page.
Administrators are users with sysop (system operator) user access levels. This includes the ability to delete and undelete pages, roll back edits, protect and unprotect pages, block and unblock users, and edit the site's interface.
In addition, administrators have two rights on the Discord server: the ability to block/kick trolls, and access to the Admin Lab, a suite of tools on Discord that includes access to all of our social media accounts and Intangir Bot (though Intangir Bot should not be used without permission). Because of their access to social media, influence in policy discussions, and ability to block users, administrators are expected to show good judgment and leadership skills.
Bureaucrats are administrators with the ability to add and remove the administrator role to and from users. They also have full rights on the Discord server.

Users who were marked as inactive (gray) during the most recent change to moderator rights (August 2017) have not had their rights changed; however, if they become active again they can request that their rights be changed by contacting an active bureaucrat.

Community standards[edit source]
Because staff members are entrusted with a higher access level than normal users, they are expected to uphold a high standard of conduct, observe and respect the process of consensus, and fulfill their responsibilities when needed. Administrators also fulfill the role of judging the outcome of certain discussions, and then codifying the resulting consensus.
Staff members are expected to exercise care and judgment, as the enforcement and fulfillment of the community's policies and administrative needs are generally left to staff member discretion. Staff members should not be impeded by excessive bureaucracy and formal procedures. However, they should take care that any autonomous action respects existing relevant consensus and is unlikely to be contentious.
Staff member are not, nor are they to act is if, they are a rank above normal contributors. Although staff members are authorized to act on behalf of the community (e.g. enforcing policy), their title is not a conferment of power over the community.
