The MS Paint Adventures Wiki maintains a select number of users who have earned the trust needed to run the Wiki. These users, known as the "staff", are awarded with certain capabilities, which in turn give them more responsibility towards the administration and maintenance of the Wiki. Such positions are awarded to those who continually show that they are willing to create and write in-depth articles, cover a scope of a project, and/or revert vandalism.
Below is a list of staff based on responsibility and right.
Administrators are users who have sysop rights (and, by default, also have the same powers as moderators). While they do not "own" the wiki, and are equal to other users in terms of editorial responsibility, they are entrusted with several performance and security features to help ensure the smooth-running of the Wiki. Users may seek them out to perform maintenance to the Wiki, and for advice and information. Please read more on administrator roles and function.
- Bureaucrat – able to grant rights to other users, in addition to having normal sysop rights.
- Sysop – able to protect and delete pages and files, as well as blocking vandals from editing.
Moderators are users who have been granted additional rights by bureaucrats. While they are equal to other users in terms of editorial responsibility, they are especially trusted to keep articles safe from vandalism and bad-faith edits. Their main ability is Rollback, but they also have the ability to move any number of articles without being halted by spam restrictions, the ability to move files to new names, and the ability to suppress redirects when moving a page.
