The administration of the Kung Fu Panda Wiki is a group of users on this wiki who have access to administrative tools that enables them to perform special actions on the wiki's pages and non-administrative users. There is currently 1 administrator, of which 1 is a bureaucrat.
Different users have access to different functions of the site. While anyone can do most things on the site, including reading and editing, administrators can access a few additional functions. See the administrators' how-to guide for a guide on using admin functions. Some functions include: deleting and undeleting pages, page histories, and uploaded files; locking (protecting) a page so it can not be edited or renamed by users without admin rights; blocking IP addresses or user names from editing; "rolling back" undesirable edits; and editing the interface by changing system messages and skins, among others.
A bureaucrat can make other users into bureaucrats or administrators on their own wiki, but they cannot demote other bureaucrats.
Some Wikia staff members have full access to all of Wikia. They will be shown in Special:Listusers/staff on any wiki. Please see the Central Wikia contact page for details on how to contact Wikia staff.

How to be promoted
There is typically no formal application/promotion process on this wiki. When need arises for them, staff are hand-selected by local administrators based on their observations of the user's activity on the wiki. This includes but is not limited to the following:
- Quality (NOT quantity) and type of mainspace edits
- How often they edit (ideal is at least a few times a day)
- Their interactions with other users
- Their activity on other wikis (for select cases; usually just a background check on spam/vandalism history)
If you are interested in being wiki staff and meet good standards of the criteria above, feel free to let an admin know. Doing this will put you on a short list, but again: staff is selected only when there is need for them, not simply because there are spots open. An admin will let you know via Message Wall if you are offered the position, though depending on the needs of the wiki, it could be as short as a day and as long as several months.
**UPDATE (August 10, 2020): There is currently a formal opening for staff positions on the wiki. Learn more about and/or apply for these positions HERE.**
