Administratorer (også betegnet sysops, system-operatører eller bare admin) er brukere med tekniske muligheter til å:

The Protect form.
The Block form (image when blocking user accounts).
  • delete and undelete pages, and view deleted revisions of pages;
  • block and unblock users, individual IP addresses, and ranges of IP addresses;
  • protect and unprotect pages, and edit protected pages;
  • (if available) set the stable viewing level of a page (see here for an example)
  • edit most pages in the MediaWiki namespace;
  • import pages from other Wikimedia projects;
  • perform other functions related to the technical maintenance;
  • add and remove users from some usergroups, such as rollback, IP block exempt or flooder.

Administratorer kan kun utføre disse handlingene på wikier. hvor de er blitt tildelt administratorstatus.

Administratorrollen og forventningene som følger samt #policy som rører deres myndigheter skiller seg til mellom forskjellige prosjekt. Mens administratorer har mer tekniske anledninger enn andre bruker skal ikke det forveksles med autoritet, som fortjenes av fellesskapet. Visse wikier har kanskje ikke ens skrevet noen retningslinjer for hvordan man bli administrator. Det beror oftest på at et begrenset antall bruker og aktivitet.

Some projects use different terms for administrators. For example, the English Wikiversity uses "custodian", while the Spanish Wikipedia uses what translates into "librarian".

All "administrative" actions are logged and reversible by any other administrator. The same principle applies to all the special permissions on MediaWiki, although some are not publicly logged: see for instance checkusers, who need to be at least a couple on each Wikimedia project to check each other. This makes their activity closely scrutinized by the community at large. In particular, it is comparable to the ius intercessionis or the Roman consuls' veto: an intrinsic system for consensual action, reciprocal control, and prevention of abuse. Its degeneration, when the system fails to actually prevent abuse and such powers have to be in fact exercised (multiple times) to reverse a previous action, is the so-called wheel war.

Administrators are subject to the global admin activity review policy, which stipulates that their rights may be removed if inactive for more than two years.
