Don't believe me? Check out Special:UserRights. What used to be a lovely little message informing you you're not special enough to view the page has been replaced by a single check box labeled "administrator". Of course, once you deop yourself, you're doomed until an active 'crat reops you.

Two questions:

  1. When did this become a thing, and
  2. Why is it a thing?

This wasn't the case like a week ago.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 08:39 Jul 27, 2011

I wouldn't know. In a related vein, have 'crats always been able to decrat themselves? Sir SockySexy girls Mermaid with dolphin Tired Marilyn Monroe (talk) (stalk)Magnemite Icons-flag-be GUN SotM UotM PMotM UotY PotM WotM 08:58, 27 July 2011
Yeah they have for a while. ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Icons-flag-au 09:00, July 27, 2011 (UTC)
Yes. They couldn't always make other crats though, nor hand out bot flags. That's all (relatively) new.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 09:02 Jul 27, 2011
To answer your 2nd question, probably because Wikia likes to change stuff around for no apparent reason. I'd guess it might be because wikia was getting requests from admins on "minor" wikis to be de-opped, and decided to add that feature to save staff resources. --Mn-z 01:53, July 28, 2011 (UTC)
