The Final Fantasy Wiki maintains a select number of users who have earned the trust needed to run the Wiki. These users, known as the "staff", are awarded with certain capabilities, which in turn give them more responsibility towards the administration and maintenance of the Wiki. Such positions are awarded to those who continually show that they are willing to create and write in-depth articles, cover a scope of a project, and/or revert vandalism.
Below is a list of staff based on responsibility and right, included with a trivial reason for their rights. Please note that the reason may not be their only sole contribution to the FFWiki. A Staff member will be indicated with a busy cactuar () on their userpage. Questions and requests to staff can be asked at the Staff Noticeboard. To nominate a user to the Staff, head to the Requests for Promotion page.
Administrators are Final Fantasy Wiki users who have sysop (System Operator) rights. While they do not own the Wiki and are equal to other users in terms of editorial responsibility, they are entrusted with several performance and security features to help ensure the smooth-running of the Wiki. Users may seek them out to perform maintenance to the FFWiki, and for advice and information.
These users are able to grant Bureaucrat, Sysop and Moderator rights to other users.

Moderators are users who have been granted additional rights by bureaucrats. While they are equal to other users in terms of editorial responsibility, they are especially trusted to keep articles safe from vandalism and bad-faith edits. In particular, users who show dedication to the wiki are usually made moderators, because their status gives them abilities that facilitate heavy-duty editing, but could be misused by newcomers. These abilities are Rollback, the ability to move any number of articles without being halted by spam restrictions, the ability to move files to new names, the ability to suppress redirects when moving a page, the ability to move over a redirect, the ability to delete and protect pages, and the ability to mark edits as patrolled.
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 ScatheMote.

Designers are users who have been given the rights to access the MediaWiki namespace, though no other sysop rights.
