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.
Administrators are Final Fantasy Wiki users who have sysop 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. Please read more on administrator roles and function.

Moderators are users who have been granted Rollback 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.
