| This page documents official Policy on Microsoft Wiki. It concerns standards that all users should follow.
When editing this page, please ensure that your revision reflects consensus. When in doubt, discuss first on the talk page.
Staff (Administrators, Bureaucrats and Content Moderators) are users on Microsoft Wiki with the responsibility to keep the wiki running smoothly. The main job of all Staff is to help users, so don't hesitate to ask a member of Staff if you have any problems or questions.
Certain Staff also have various rights, administrative tools and authority over the wiki. There are two main levels of Staff on Microsoft Wiki, plus Wikia Staff. No users other than the ones mentioned here have any administrative privileges or decision-making authority.
Microsoft Wiki is not officially affiliated to Microsoft in any way. Staff on this wiki have no authoriy to give out free products or deal with software problems.
See Promotion to see the process for nominating staff for promotion, and to provide nominations and opinions.
|Administrators (Admins or SysOps) are members of Staff with tools and authority to solve disputes and keep the wiki running smoothly. Administrators are still just editors of the wiki, and the main part of their job is the help other users; but they occasionally need to step in and use their additional tools to solve problems and maintain the wiki according to Policy.|
|Bureaucrats are the users that steer Microsoft Wiki. They have authority in any disputes, and can approve large-scale changes to the wiki. As well as being full Administrators, Bureaucrats can also promote other users to staff.|
|Content Moderators are users who have additional tools available to moderate specific parts of the community.|
