This staff of the Hazbin Hotel Wiki are users who provide support and resources to the community, as well as oversee the maintenance of the site.

Groups

Bureaucrats

Bureaucrats are trusted users that have the ability to manipulate users to promote or demote to any user right, as well as block and unblock users. This right is generally given to those in the admin group. They are responsible for maintaining, protecting, and promoting lawful wiki users and keeping wiki vandals in check. Bureaucrats cannot directly remove another user's bureaucrat status, but they can remove their own.

Administrators

Administrators are trusted editors who have the most responsibilities of the entire staff, and are equipped with the tools to keep the wiki running smoothly. They can issue blocks to troublesome editors, revert spam/vandalism using the rollback tool, and delete spam pages. They are authorized to use the tools at their disposal to deal with issues facing the wiki to the best of their ability.

Admins have all the privileges from both the Content Moderator and Discussions Moderator groups, and the ability to promote or revoke both the Chat Moderator and Discussions Moderator rights.

Content Moderators

Content Moderators are responsible for locating and erasing vandalism, and have access tools needed for keeping blogs, articles, and other pages clean, as well as protecting pages in the case of emergency. They are also tasked with checking edits to make sure they are contributive and not vandalism.

Discussion Moderators

Discussions moderators are responsible for activity in all discussion threads and comments. They keep Discussions and comments a safe place and can delete, edit, highlight, lock, and reopen threads, and can edit and delete comments.

Rollbacks

Rollbacks have the ability to undo all the edits made by the most recent user in an article. Their task is to revert vandalism and bad-faith edits with one click.

Requirements

Wikis cannot rely on one staff member alone to run it indefinitely. It must wean off of having its founding administrator running it. This wiki requires more attention as it grows – whether it would be only to have more eyes examining edits or to have people parsing through our files and properly organizing them. The Hazbin Hotel Wiki has a process that determines if a user will serve as a member of the staff by listing specific requirements.

Request Process

To request for user rights, please contact a wiki bureaucrat on their message wall or through their Discord.

Please make sure you adhere to most of the required criteria and requisites requested in your application's respective requisites section below before applying.

These requisites are current as of August 2020 and are the quintessential guidelines for hiring.

Administrators

Please initiate the discussion by expressing your interest with a formal request. Candidates for this position are determined by staff consensus after initial vetting by a bureaucrat.
