Bureaucrats are AHWiki users with the technical ability to:
- promote other users to sysop or bureaucrat status; and
- rename user accounts.
They are bound by policy to grant administrator or bureaucrat access, usually after a successful request to HiTech Creations. In like fashion, they are expected to exercise judgment in changing usernames, and in granting or removing bot flags. They are expected to explain the reasoning for their actions on request and in a civil manner.
