Achievements are awards for doing certain things. Not telling you what they are. It would spoil the fun. :)
Achievements is actually a feature of the wiki that can be turned on/off. It is currently on because it would add to the fun if you got a badge for completing some secret tasks that have been set.
Note: Achievements are only available for users with accounts, obviously. The current collection leaders can be found on the Leaderboard page.
Phantom Forces Wiki Editor
In Phantom Forces Wiki, we have a special award for helping at the wiki.
Formerly its PF Wiki Hero. To become an editor, a editor MUST major edit a weapon article. And you can increase the chance of becoming an editor by editing more articles. An example is filling up all list of attachments on certain weapon or adding pictures on several pages.
Note: This special award is only available for users with accounts. Since it requires an account to edit.
Different users have access to different functions of the site. While anyone can do most things on the site, including reading and editing, administrators can access a few additional functions.
Moderators can report, warn, and ban users either on the wiki or on the chat.
Administrators, on the other hand can delete and undelete pages, page histories, and uploaded files. They can lock (protect) a pages so it cannot be edited or renamed by users without admin rights or an autoconfirmed status. They can also ban/block IP addresses or user names from editing; and very quick "rollback" of undesirable edits. They can also customize the wiki.
The bureaucrat is the highest position on the wiki. They have the abilities of the admin and they also can promote/demote users with a desirable reason.
