What is a Sysop?

Sysops on this wiki are administrators that help keep the website running efficiently and effectively for the benefit of Scouting.

A user with sysop rights can:

  • edit protected pages/sections (including those in the MeritBadgeDotOrg namespace),
  • patrol the recent changes,
  • move pages,
  • delete and undelete pages,
  • protect and unprotect pages,
  • block and unblock users, and
  • use the rollback feature.
See: MediaWiki.Org/Manual:Administrators for details.

Can I become a Sysop on this wiki?

Yes, absolutely! You can volunteer yourself, or be nominated.

Pre-requisites for Adminship

In order to be a Sysop on this wiki:

  • You must, first, be an active, BSA-registered Scouter, including...
  • Second, you must also be a registered member of MeritBadge.Net. (There is a private forum on MeritBadge.Net where sysops can discuss the administrative (i.e., back office) aspects of maintaining this website, to which you would need to subscribe.)

If you meet these pre-requisites, some (very) limited personal information will asked for in order to verify that you meet the above requirements. (Note: This information will only be available to the Bureaucrats.)

Requests for Adminship

If you are interested, or would like to nominate somebody, please e-mail RWSmith.
