Bureaucrats are BizApps Wiki users, usually administrators, with the technical ability to perform the following actions:

  • Add the administrator, bureaucrat, interface administrator, account creator, pending changes reviewer, or bot user group to an account.
  • Remove the administrator, interface administrator, account creator, IP block exemption, pending changes reviewer, or bot user group from an account.

They are bound by policy and consensus to only grant administrator or bureaucrat access when doing so reflects the wishes of the community, usually after a successful request at BizAApps Wiki. They are expected to be capable judges of consensus, and are expected to explain the reasoning for their actions on request and in a civil manner. Actions by bureaucrats are also bound by the policy on use of administrative rights.

Bureaucrats have been authorized by the community to remove administrator permissions in certain situations outlined below. Bureaucrats do not have the technical ability to remove bureaucrat rights from users or to grant or remove certain levels of access such as oversight or checkuser rights. These actions are performed by stewards, a multilingual group of individuals who serve all Wikimedia projects and are elected and reconfirmed annually by their users.
