Editors come in all shapes, sizes, and powers, from the bureaucrat, to the administrator, to the standard editor, to the anonymous editor. It's possible that an editor has exceptionally high levels in some skills (Habbo Guardians, Veteran Players, Admins on Other Wikis, etc). Due to human nature, an editor's status, popularity, attitude, demeanor, or in-game experience may influence the way we think about them. However, at no time may a user's group membership, in-game experience, or any other factor regarding that user's status affect the validity of his or her opinions in disputes.
A wiki is not based on any form of hierarchy. Administrators and Bureaucrats, as trusted members of the wiki community who are recognized for reliable edits and fairness in dealing with discussions, are not given authority over other players in overruling decisions; all major decisions, such as new policy, must be made by the community. No statement made by an administrator or other authority can be enforced as if it were a policy purely based on the fact that an administrator said it, and only rules determined by consensus can be enforced. Given a controversial situation, editors are encouraged to discuss and compromise, both being major parts of a wiki.
Major parts of this policy are comprised from Runescape Wiki's former AEAE policy. (http://runescape.wikia.com/wiki/RuneScape:All_Editors_Are_Equal)
