Staff (Administrators and Bureaucrats) are users on Microsoft Wiki with the responsibility to keep the wiki running smoothly. The main job of all Staff is to help users, so don't hesitate to ask a member of Staff if you have any problems or questions.

Certain Staff also have various rights, administrative tools and authority over the wiki. There are two main levels of Staff on Microsoft Wiki, plus Wikia Staff. No users other than the ones mentioned here have any administrative privileges or decision-making authority.

Microsoft Wiki is not officially affiliated to Microsoft in any way. Staff on this wiki have no authoriy to give out free products or deal with software problems.

See Promotion to see the process for nominating staff for promotion, and to provide nominations and opinions.

Administrators


Administrators (Admins or SysOps) are members of Staff with tools and authority to solve disputes and keep the wiki running smoothly. Administrators are still just editors of the wiki, and the main part of their job is the help other users; but they occasionally need to step in and use their additional tools to solve problems and maintain the wiki according to Policy.
