edit To Honour our Mother Encyclopædia
- This week will be devoted to festivities, contests, and parades honouring Wikipedia. We'd like to take the time to show our lovely parody how much we appreciate her hard work and how much we respect what she does. We also think that Wikipedia Admins are underappreciated and deserve our praise and adoration. Please join us as we celebrate these noble workers of good.
edit What is an Administrator?
- Often the unsung heroes of Wikipedia, an Administrator is simply a Wikipedian who can access the few restricted Wikipedia software functions: deleting articles and uploaded files, protecting and unprotecting pages and blocking and unblocking IP addresses. They tend to be friendly folks that are willing to help you, if you post on their "talk page".
edit How does one become an Administrator?
- It's easy. First, you need a User Account. Then, make useful edits over a period of time. In this way, you prove to the community that you are here in good faith. After several months, a special CABAL meeting is arranged and selected Wikipedians, or friends of existing Administrators, are nominated, and after a fair and just consultation the User just may be Sysop'ed. Remember, be sure to use your new "powers" with caution!
