The Disney Wiki staff are users who have access to various additional site features to provide support and resources to the community, in addition to overseeing the care of the site.
Groups and Responsibilities
Bureaucrats have the ability to change or assign user rights to people, as well as block and unblock users, so this right is generally used in addition to the administrator group.
They have the ability to promote and revoke rollback, Content Moderator, and administrator rights as well as appointing new bureaucrats. While they cannot directly remove another user's bureaucrat status, they can remove their own. Bureaucrats also have the ability to remove a user's bot status in case the bot is malfunctioning, but bot flag requests are handled by staff after being approved (by either a bureaucrat or the community).
Administrators (also known as "admins" or "sysops") are trusted users who are generally chosen by the community and also have access to the following rights:
- Deleting and undeleting pages, page histories, and uploaded files.
- Locking (protecting) a page so it cannot be edited or renamed by users without admin or content mod rights. Pages can also be protected so that new and anonymous editors cannot edit them.
- Blocking IP addresses or user names from editing; and very quick "rollback" of undesirable edits.
- Editing the interface by changing system messages and skins.
- Renaming files
Administrators should not use their powers to settle editing disputes they are personally involved in; for example, to lock a page on a version he or she prefers in an editing dispute that isn't vandalism. Administrator powers should be used to help keep the wiki clear of vandalism, spam, and users who make malicious edits, but not for simple disagreements between users acting in good faith. Ideally an admin shouldn't be considered "in charge". The ideal admin is just someone who is trusted to have a few extra buttons and to use them for the benefit of the Wikia community.
Moderators overlook social roles such as discussions. There are two types of moderators.
Content Moderators are users who have additional tools available to moderate specific parts of the community. These tools are:
- Deleting and moving protected pages
- Deleting and moving files
- Undeleting pages and files
- Reupload files
- Protecting and unprotecting pages
- Patrol pages if the community has the RecentChanges patrol feature enabled
Thread Moderators (also known as "Discussions Moderator") are users who have additional tools available to manage conversations in various features across the community where users are having discussions. These tools are:
- Removing and restoring threads and replies by any user
- Closing and reopening replies
- Manage Discussions categories, and move posts from one category to another
- Deleting blog comments
- Editing and deleting article comments
- Moderating the Discussions feature, if enabled.

|I found this wiki about seven years ago back when only two or three other users visited it, very few pages existed, nearly every link was a redlink, and there were periods of time where I was practically the only one user editing. I've watched it grow, improve and thrive over the years, and I'm extremely proud of the work myself, the other admins, and countless users have put into this site to make it as cohesive and informative as it is today.|

|I'm Buzzfan120, and as my username implies, I am a huge Buzz Lightyear fan! In fact, I love all things Disney, especially Pixar. I also like Cheetos, Puffs Plus, Wubbzy and things that are blue. I hate zits, opera and when people say bad things about Disney. Whether you need me to fix a typo or delete an unneeded page, I'm always happy to help!|
|Disneyfan789 (Message Wall)||Active|
|I am a huge Disney fanatic. I love anything Disney (including Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar, Disneytoon Studios (now closed down), the Muppets, Marvel, Lucasfilm Ltd., and the just recently acquired 20th Century Fox).|
|GrayWolf2 (Message Wall)||Active|
|I have been very helpful on this site ever since I signed up here. I have made the most edits and created the most wiki articles on this site and am willing to help other wiki users who are in need of it. As you may have guessed, according to my profile, I am a fan of Lilo and Stitch, Mulan, Gargoyles, and the Lion King. Also, my favorite wiki sites are Disney Wiki, Stitchipedia, Stitch Database, The Lion King, and Wickedpedia.|
|JeremyCreek (Message Wall)||Active|
|My name is not Jeremy Creek; that is merely the name of the protagonist of one of my favorite Christmas specials. I have come to provide help here on the Disney Wiki, because this is one wiki that is in serious need of help from people like me. I have been a big fan of Disney my whole life, and as someone who also knows quite a bit about the company's animated productions, I have a lot to contribute here, particularly for stuff relating to the animated television shows and comics.|
|Lola987 (Message Wall)||Active|
|Hi, my name is Lola, an editor of the wikia. My favourite Disney film of all time will probably have to be Lilo & Stitch. The entire franchise (sequels and TV show) is AMAZING and probably one of the best in my opinion. My favourite show would have to be That's So Raven. Growing up it was one of my favourite shows.|
|ZanyDragon (Message Wall)||Semi-Active|
|Greetings. I am ZanyDragon, but many call me the Rebel. I grew up watching Disney movies for a portion of my childhood, and even watched Disney television shows. I seek to provide all the information I can to contribute to this wiki.|
|Alex2424121 (Message Wall)||Active|
|Greetings Users, I am User:Alex2424121 (Also known as Alex) I am British and I have a massive interest in media such as the history, the inspiration and the secrets that were never known. I have good eyes when tracking down mistakes in spelling or sentences. Making them letter perfect. I always prefer to keep my facts and writings true, simple and understandable, requiring not to display too much or jump to conclusions. Sudden facts and rumours that are yet to be proven true causes confusion and judgement in my opinion.|
|Arabela13 (Message Wall)||Active|
|I'm a biologist (specialized in zoology) from Brazil. I love animation in general, and I've been a fan of Disney films since I was a child. My favorite Disney animated film is Mulan, and she is also my favorite Disney Princess. Another favorites are Tarzan and Beauty and the Beast. My current obssessions are Star Wars and Loki, and I also love any Marvel Cinematic Universe related film. Besides this, the Kingdom Hearts series is my favorite video game series ever. I'm a very protective person and I'll try to defend the Wiki against any disruptive activity when I see it. I also edit other Wikis, I'm currently a content moderator here and an administrator in the Ice Age Wiki.|
