As you already did notice, we have a little problem over 2 weeks. I'm going on vacation to Sweden with my family. On the Prison Break Wiki, we have 3 Sysops. Here's the problem: I'm the only Bureaucrat. And I don't no who I should now: Samthebest is gone for 4 weeks, DanDud88 is only online for a short time and he has minor edits and Thundergamer has only more talk page edits, of course also other edits on pages, but what should I do now? --Station7 19:38, July 23, 2010 (UTC)

You don't need a Bureaucrat if you have active Sysops. If you don't think you sysops can handle thing while you're on vacation, it soulds like you need to promote another user to Sysop --  Roguebfl   talk    contribs    email   19:42, July 23, 2010 (UTC)
No trustworthy regular editor left you could grand admin rights (permanent or for a short period of time)? How many "admin things" (major spam, edit wars, etc.) do you expect to happen within those weeks anyway? BramTalk/IGW 19:46, July 23, 2010 (UTC)
Vandalism of course. I expect that. But Roguebfl, the Sysops all make minor edits. So not much and if there is vandalism, they can't block anyone. That's what this is actually about. I hope that someone can solve this. I want that someone knows what to do when I am there not.--Station7 19:56, July 23, 2010 (UTC)
Sysops can't block people? That's new for me. BramTalk/IGW 19:58, July 23, 2010 (UTC)

I mean they also don't know where actually everything is. Sorry, have to laugh about my mistake. But actually it's they can't block people and since they are not much online, we actually should need someone who will block someone while I'm there not.--Station7 20:01, July 23, 2010 (UTC)

I sysop CAN block people, what your saying is your currently sysops don't know how to do so, or not wiling to do so. The only think I know a Bureaucrat can do that a sysop can't do, is make new sysops. --  Roguebfl   talk    contribs    email   20:05, July 23, 2010 (UTC)

But Roguebfl, there are no other people there. What now? There are only users with at least 10 edits.--Station7 20:09, July 23, 2010 (UTC)

It's not hard to block people. Just teach them how or show them this page. --BentendoSmallLogo.png Talk 20:10, July 23, 2010 (UTC)
Or you can ask someone from VSTF to keep an eye out for you, but long term Bentendo's idea is better. --  Roguebfl   talk    contribs    email   20:14, July 23, 2010 (UTC)
