Administrators are Bulbapedia's mainstay staff members, having proven themselves dependable with Bulbapedia's processes and responsibilities. These staff members are tasked with keeping the encyclopedia running smoothly, and they are granted the necessary administrative permissions accordingly. These permissions include the ability to protect pages from editing and creation, delete pages, automatically replace text on the wiki, block and unblock users, among other responsibilities.

Administrators include the majority of Bulbapedia staff members. Administrators who demonstrate considerable leadership ability and understanding of Bulbagarden’s global needs may be considered for the Leadership Board.

Administrators maintain access to the dedicated staff areas on Bulbagarden forums and Bulbagarden Discord where they participate in discussions about key decisions and strategic planning for Bulbapedia.

Staff expectations

In accordance to Bulbagarden's four core values, Administrators act as leaders for the encyclopedia, fostering a welcoming and inclusive environment for all contributors. In addition to the expectations for both Bulbapedia staff members and Junior Administrators, Administrators have the following responsibilities and expectations:

  • Employ a working proficiency in both subject matter and Bulbapedia's style and policy guidelines to make informed decisions and lead wiki improvements
  • Assist regular editors with content solutions and straightforward editing decisions, escalating complicated issues appropriately
  • Manage pre-work and execution for wiki improvements that have multi-page impacts, communicating needs and roadblocks as necessary
  • Support in the upkeep of wiki resources (Project pages, Editor's Hub, policies, etc.), communicating concerns and escalating issues
  • Utilize advanced wiki tools to streamline workflow and prevent issues
  • Comfortable and trusted to solve user disputes that go beyond content creation, issuing warnings and disciplinary actions as necessary
