What do Administrators do?
Administrators' primary role is to manage people. They are tasked with helping to build and maintain the structure of Fanlore's content within the policies set by the Fanlore Committee. They can do everything that Gardeners do, but they have access to more tools for maintaining the integrity of the wiki.
