Active Admins review the troops.

Admins (or sysops) are Uncyclopedians with the power to delete pages, ban users, and administer other mayhem. The following Admins tend to respond when asked to help. (The rest of them are either dead, missing in action, or undergoing a sex change operation, which for many of them is their second or third.)

Mayhem for hire

AdminBadge

If you see this on a user's page, they've earned it.

If you would like an Admin to commit specific mayhem on request, your request must be public. You may have a favorite Admin; then again, he may be in jail tonight with orders to "sleep it off." It is best to send your request for mayhem to whomever is currently covering for him:

  • To get an annoying user banned, go to Ban Patrol.
  • To get an awful but established article deleted, nominate it at Votes for Deletion (VFD).
  • To get an awful new article deleted — notably, one of your own ones — go to Quick VFD.
  • To get an article renamed — for example, to claim that an article that got moved into your userspace is no longer awful but is now ready for the main encyclopedia — request it at UN:RFM.

In each case, you must follow a rasher of picky little rules to the letter to keep the mayhem from being commited upon you instead.

Working with the Admins

Here is how it is: Simsilikesims is essentially your mom. She will give you cash to replace the neighbor's window that you threw a brick through, and will take you out for ice cream when you actually do so. Whereas Romartus is your father. He will teach you how to throw bricks and how to blame your little brother for broken windows. And like your real parents, the two of them are cordial to one another, though they do live on different continents. But, Hell, flying across the ocean by yourself for a "visitation weekend" is cool (except for the jet lag).

You can take your chances with them, or pick one of the others, who are somewhere in between, in all respects except geographically.

All Admins are willing to help you get established and understand the rules, procedures, and traditions. There is also a cadre of people who have expressed their willingness to adopt new users. Those grayed out in the above table have not checked in for a while, and if you are an impatient type, you might contact another one first.

If, beyond the additional hand-holding of being an adopted user, you want continual attention, we suggest Encyclopedia Dramatica. If you also tend toward toilet humor and pranks, you might try Wikipedia, which has been lacking in both departments lately, or 4chan, inventors of the modern shock image and meme pics. (Note: Images borrowed from 4chan may be cause for a ban here.) If you prefer randomness or surrealism to disciplined parody, try Illogicopedia.
