Administrators, also called admins or sysops (system operators), can delete pages, protect pages, and block users. Administrators can also "rollback" changes to any page. If you want to be an administrator, ask for it below. If you have a request for protection, or blocking, make it at the bottom of the page. For requests for deletion, go to Wikibooks:Requests for deletion.
A bureaucrat is a slightly higher administrative level than sysop and can perform a few additional functions. Bureaucrats can give sysop or bureaucrat status to other users after a successful request below. Bureaucrats can also help users who want to change their user names. They can also "flag" bots, which hides a user's contributions from the new changes and puts them in the bot group. Requests for name changes should be made on the talk page of one of the listed bureaucrats.
