Wikis are often set up to be freely and openly editable. This means anyone can edit the pages, often without even registering/logging in. This is only possible because wikis offer a unique kind of "soft security". By making it very simple to monitor edits, and revert changes to retrieve an older version of a page, a wiki doesn't need to be very restrictive at all. However, SaltWiki is a scientific wiki with a high claim on quality. Everybody can read it, but you have to get registrated to help writing.

Administrators

By default SaltWiki provides extra functionality to a group of trusted 'editors'. They are experts and check the contents or help to organise the pages in a reasonable manner. Therefore, all editors have the users rights of an administrator. Most of the time their work should go largely unnoticed by the normal users of a wiki community.

Who are the administrators?

You can find out who the administrators are at Special:ListUsers/sysop

What can an administrator do?

There are a number of extra features available to administrators. The key ones are as follows:

Protecting and unprotecting pages, and editing protected pages
'Protecting' a page prevents normal users from editing the page at all. There are several reasons why a particular page might be protected. For more information see Help:Protected pages. For sysop information see Help:Protecting and unprotecting pages
Deleting pages, and undeleting.
A page can be deleted semi-permanently, such that it is no longer available (even in the page histories) for normal users. Normal users do not have this power. See Help:Deleting a page. For sysop information see Help:Sysop deleting and undeleting.
Blocking a user or IP address, and unblocking them.
Users can be blocked from the wiki. This is a useful way of keeping out persistent vandals. Users are identified by their registered user name, or by I.P. address, and can be blocked permanently, or just short length of time to give them a "cooling off" period. See Help:Blocking users
Patrolling, and seeing patrolled edits.
This is a way of coordinating with other sysops, to ensure that every edit of the wiki has been checked over by a trusted user. See Help:Patrolled edits

Bureaucrats

Another level of permissions within a default SaltWiki set-up, is the 'bureaucrat' group. The main thing a bureaucrat can do, which editors cannot, is promote users to be sysops (and demote sysops to normal users). See Help:Assigning permissions
