Project:Administrators|Administrators can '''protect''' and '''unprotect''' pages, including ones that do not exist. Protection of a page or image usually means that a non-admin cannot modify it.
The majority of pages on all Wikia should remain publicly editable, and '''not protected'''. Pages may, however, be temporarily or permanently protected for legal reasons (for example, license texts should not be changed) or in cases of extreme vandalism or edit warring or abusive re-creation.
*Protecting highly vandalised pages, such as the Main Page on large wikis.
*Maintaining the integrity of the site's logo and favicon.
*Maintaining the integrity of key Project:copyrights|copyright and license pages.
*Preventing repeatedly created vandal or spam pages from creation. See Special:Protectedtitles
*Protecting the interface and system messages in the MediaWiki namespace (these are protected automatically)
A '''temporary''' protection is used for:
*Enforcing a "cool down" period to stop an "edit war", upon request.
*Protecting a page or image that has been a recent target of ''persistent'' vandalism or ''persistent'' edits by a banned user.
There is no need to protect personal .css and .js pages like user/monobook.css or user/cologneblue.js. Only the accounts associated with these pages (and admins) are able to edit them. (For more information on using these pages, see the Wikia:Help:User style|help page on Central
== Usage ==
Most pages and images are unprotected by default, only the site logo and favicons are automatically protected. You can protect editing, moving, or both by checking or unchecking the '''Unlock move permissions selection box'''.
*'''(default)''' means any user, whether logged in or anonymous, can edit or move the page.
*'''Block unregistered users''', or semi-protected, means anonymous users and new accounts less than 4 days old cannot edit and/or move pages.
*'''Sysops only''', or fully-protected, means only administrators may edit and/or move the page.
Pages can also be cascade protected, this will cause all images, pages, or templates transcluded onto the page to be fully protected, even if the main article is only semi-protected.
#Do not make the common mistake of protecting pages unnecessarily. For example, do not protect a page simply because it is the Main Page.
#Do not Help:Editing|edit a temporarily protected page except to add a notice explaining the page is protected.
#Do not protect a page you are involved in an edit dispute over. Admin powers are not editor privileges - admins should only act as servants to the user community at large.
favoring one version of the article over another, unless one version is vandalism.
protected pages should not be left protected for very long.
pages and user talk pages are not protected except in extreme circumstances.
protection of a page on any particular version is not meant to express support for that version and requests should therefore not be made that the protected version be reverted to a different one.
There are two kinds of '''administrators''' in the Deus Ex Wiki - regular admins (also called '''sysops''') and '''bureaucrats'''. The only difference between administrators and bureaucrats is that bureaucrats can give and revoke other people's administrative powers.
Admin powers include:
* Deleting and undeleting pages, page histories and uploaded files.
* Protecting pages, so they cannot be edited or renamed by users without admin rights.
* Banning users from editing.
* Quick rollback of undesirable edits.
* Editing the interface by changing system messages and skins.

If you want to become an admin, you may simply ask an active bureaucrat directly on their message wall and start a thread titled "Adminship Request - your username". You should describe why you would like to become an admin and what your major contributions have been so far. The community is free to give their opinion and necessarily influence the final decision. The final decision will be up to bureaucrats or the bureaucrat you have asked.
Please note that administratorship is not a reward for good contributions nor a promotion to have more authority than other users. An admin is a user who is being trusted with access to certain technical features to aid in maintenance. Not everybody who meets the requirements will automatically become an administrator; admins are appointed on a per-need basis.
If there are admins but no bureaucrats, you should first discuss with them on who should become an admin. If there are no admins and no bureaucrats for a long period of time, please contact the Wikia:Community Central:Staff|Community Staff on the Central Wikia.
