Fanlore Policy & Admin volunteers are responsible for managing and developing both the technical aspects and the policies of Fanlore. They help shape Fanlore policies and guidelines, categories, and tutorials; maintain policy-related documentation; and make and communicate decisions about Fanlore policy violations.

Policy & Admin volunteers can do everything that Gardeners do and work closely with them to resolve conflicts and respond to questions and complaints. However, Policy & Admin volunteers have access to more tools for maintaining the integrity of the wiki.

If you have a question about or need help with Identity Protection, you can contact Fanlore Policy & Admin via the contact form. (Select 'Fanlore Policies' or 'Identity Protection' from the Subject menu). For any other issues, add the AttentionGardeners template to an article's Talk page to request assistance from Fanlore Gardeners.
