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.

You can contact Fanlore Policy & Admin via the contact form if you have a question about Fanlore's Policies or how they are enforced, need help with Identity Protection, or have an issue with another user on Fanlore, including a Gardener or admin. (Select the appropriate topic from the Subject menu. If you select 'Fanlore Policies,' 'Identity Protection,' 'Technical Support,' or 'Other,' your message will reach the Policy & Admin team.) For any other issues, add the AttentionGardeners template to an article's Talk page to request assistance from Fanlore Gardeners.
