List of all current Admins

As of the latest update, all admins, with the exception of Thorin Stonehelm, have an exclusive shield of some sort or other. This makes them somewhat easy to recognize when they're playing on servers.

Currently, there are 13 admins on The Lord of the Rings Minecraft Mod Wiki:


LOTRMod | talk | contribs | edit stats

LOTRMod, aka Mevans, is the modder for the LOTR Minecraft mod, the guy behind the scenes. He has skills greater than Sauron and Melkor themselves, and will destroy anyone who asks for Gandalf instantly. He also previously created the Lion King Mod, which he merged into this mod.

Thorin11 | talk | contribs | edit stats

Thorin was the first non-founder admin on this wiki, and has been here since the beginning. Little is known about the mysterious past of Thorin, or where he resides today. However, it is known that Thorin11 is actually the wiki alias of Yorick, a now rather inactive FB moderator.

Sinthorion | talk | contribs | edit stats

Sinthorion (formerly known as Sinthoniel) is actually the (officially) pacifistic Pallando/Rómestámo, the Blue Wizard. His magic skills include handling code of any type. In the world of this mod he is a proud (but still pacifistic) warlord of the Moredain and faithful servant of the Great Lion. Occasionally you can also see him helping the Beornings.

Gen. Grievous1138 | comlink | contribs | edit stats

General Grievous1138 is a huge fan of both the LOTR and Star Wars. He is notorious among the wiki users for being merciless when it comes to those who do not follow wiki policies. Unfortunately for said users, he is the one on most of the time and moniters all activity. However, if you do nothing to anger him, he is a calm guy and will answer any question you have as best he can. He lists his faction as Mordor, but really it's Kalee. His war against Beijing1000 and Glflegolas is in the final stages of planning, and the horror he will unleash may annihilate all of time and space....

Areades | talk | contribs | edit stats

Areades is new to wikia and is a newer admin. He is a big fan of all of Tolkien's works, as well as other books, like Harry Potter. He, like the General, will happily ban those who do not follow wiki policies. He is knows many features of wikia and is happy to help. the Witch-King of Angmar.

Beijing1000 | Send Me an Owl | Contributions | Edit Stats

Beijing1000 is one of the top contributors on this wiki. In Minecraft, her username is HPFanatic, and she is a ginormous fan of Lord of the Rings (obviously), Harry Potter, and Game of Thrones. She is a very active admin on this wiki, so you can be sure she reads every single edit made by anyone. Within the LOTR fandom, she is a true Gondorian which means she will probably wage war against Gen. Grievous sometime in the near future.

Shields: Loremaster 2014/15

Glflegolas | Send a Messenger | contribs | edit stats

Glflegolas is the second oldest contributor here, and has been on the wiki since the 25th of June, 2014. He knows a fair bit about Lord of the Rings and the history of Arda. His favourite server is Isildur's Bane Server, although he has been rather inactive there due to real life activities. As a Gondorian, he is going to join up with Beijing1000 and attack Gen. Grievous1138 sooner or later. Despite knowing a bunch of wiki coding, he cannot tell the difference between green and orange, or between red text and black text.

Handles Quipp is awesome.

SamwiseFilmore | Fill My Mailbox | Contributions | Stats

SamwiseFilmore has been playing the mod since Public Beta 8, however, he has been following it much longer. He hates playing as evil, as he cannot bring himself to kill anything other than orcs, which he despises. He likes to use the source editor, as it is easier to use for inserting links, pages, etc. onto pages. He has read the LOTR, the Hobbit, and is trying to find time to read the Silmarrillion. He will read any fiction or science fiction series proposed to him. He is a member of the Bangari on The One Ring server, and enjoys surviving and building there.

Thorin Stonehelm has been playing the mod since around Public Beta 7 and discovered it around the same time. He has read the LOTR trilogy, the Hobbit and the Silmarrillion several times. He tends to side with the Dwarves but on occasion sides with evil.

Shields: None

EpicSpacePanda | Talk | Contribs | Stats

EpicSpacePanda is the newest admin on this wiki. He has been on the wiki since December 31, 2014, and started playing the mod in beta I-don't-remember. His favorite thing to do in the mod is start a new hardcore-mode world, every update. Despite the fact that he is better known for his memes than his admin work, he does his best to keep the wiki clean, and its pages neat.

The Power of the Gods

Admins can do things that normal contributors can't. That's why they are admins, you know? Here is a list of things that only admins can do:

  • Renaming pages
  • Deleting pages
  • Protecting pages
  • Editing protected pages
  • De-/Activating wiki features (such as badges)
  • Editing or deleting any comment, blog, forum thread, or user page
  • Changing the design (CSS and wiki theme) and menu structure of the wiki

The Responsibility of an Admin

Being an admin is not just a privilege but also a responsibility. The main task for admins is to make sure that the wiki runs as intended. The main tasks of admins are:

  • Deleting and renaming pages on request -- while all registered users can rename up to three pages every 24 hours, admins can rename as many as needed in a day. They can also delete pages, something normal users can't do at all.
  • Moderating the chat by warning or banning misbehaving users -- chat moderators also have this responsibility (also see: Banning Guideline for Admins)
  • Deleting wrong or unhelpful information on pages and eventually ban the responsible user
  • Helping users with editing pages, creating signatures, wiki coding, etc.
  • Moderating the forums, message walls, and comments

Useful links for admins

  • Editcount - displays a user's edits, and where they're most active
  • Contributions - displays a user's contributions
  • ListFiles - displays a list of the files that are on this wiki
  • Log - displays a list of which pages a user renamed, moved, or deleted
  • Log/block - displays a user's ban log
  • Insights - displays issues with the wiki, e.g. content not working on mobile devices

Trivia

The admins are ensuring the law on the wiki, just like the old Norse god Tyr. The anglo-saxon tir-rune (= letter T) stands for this god. Tolkien used those ᚱᚢᚾᛖᛋ for some texts in the initial drafts of "The Lord of the Rings", later on, he replaced them by cirth runes.

Tyr is a guiding star; well does it keep faith with princes;

it is ever on its course over the mists of night and never fails.
