Higher staff members
Sr. Admins
Jr. Admins

Archives staff are users who have been granted administrative powers by the Archives Advisory Council. They have more editing functions at their disposal than regular users, and are responsible for watching over the Bulbagarden Archives and settling any disputes. Many of them are also administrators on Bulbapedia or Bulbanews.

There are four levels of administrator powers.

In this listing, those administrators who are also administrators on other Bulbawiki sites are listed as such.

If in need of administrator assistance, please contact an Active administrator for quickest results; all active administrators generally check messages daily. To see which administrators have been recently online, see the list of recent changes. If you cannot find an active administrator, try finding one listed as Around; these staff members are considered active on other Bulbagarden projects, but don't spend as much time here.

Junior administrators

The junior administrator group is the most basic staff group. These users have the ability to move files, among other trivial privileges.

Some users may be granted temporary access to the junior administrator tools; the following four users are not temporary.

Full administrators have the ability to protect files, change protected files, delete files, and move files. They have the ability to "suppress" a redirect when a file is moved. They may also block troublesome users.

There are currently eleven administrators.

Higher staff members

Some users on the Archives technically have more power than senior administrators; however, most of them are not especially active. Generally, they are more active on Bulbapedia and Bulbanews.

The Archives Advisory Council coordinate projects and define Bulbagaden Archives policy and style. This group currently has five sitting members: Kogoro, MAGNEDETH, the dark lord trombonator, Werdnae and SnorlaxMonster.

Administrators of full or senior level have the authority to:

  • Impose bans
  • Settle disputes over images

Becoming an administrator

Temporary administrative power may be issued by a bureaucrat; long-term power will be assigned by the Archives Advisory Council.

Users who have contributed regularly and who have demonstrated initiative are candidates for administratorship.
