What is a Sysop?

Sysops on this wiki are administrators that help keep the website running efficiently and effectively for the benefit of Scouting.

A user with sysop rights can:

  • edit protected pages/sections (including those in the MeritBadgeDotOrg namespace),
  • patrol the recent changes,
  • move pages,
  • delete and undelete pages,
  • protect and unprotect pages,
  • block and unblock users, and
  • use the rollback feature.
See: MediaWiki.Org/Manual:Administrators for details.

Can I become a Sysop on this wiki?

Yes, absolutely! You can volunteer yourself, or be nominated.
