On Infinite Histories, those who edit it are said to be part of the Temporal Design Corps. Temporal Design Command is the body that heads the Corps. Administrators on IH are called Historians. Bureaucrats are called Commanders.

These additional functions include:
- Deleting and undeleting pages, page histories, and uploaded files.
- Locking (protecting) a page so it cannot be edited or renamed by users without admin rights or autoconfirmed status.
- Blocking IP addresses or user names from editing; and very quick "rollback" of undesirable edits.
- Editing the interface by changing system messages and skins.
A bureaucrat can make other users into bureaucrats or administrators on their own wiki.
Bureaucrats can also give users the ability to "rollback" edits not made in good faith.
How do I use Historian powers?
See Help:Administrators' how-to guide for a guide on using admin functions.
Becoming a Historian
For you to become a Historian, someone with the rank of Commander must make you one. On larger Wikis, there will usually be a community page for requests, with a page name such as "Infinite Histories:Requests for adminship". On a smaller wiki, such as IH, you may simply ask on the community portal or Forum, or ask a Commander directly on his or her talk page. It is very likely that you will be rejected unless you provide a very good reason why you would benefit the community as a Historian.
If there are no active Commanders, use the "Requests for adminship" page to nominate users to become admins or bureaucrats. Once a community decision has been reached (or if there is no active community to debate the decision), please leave a message at the wiki adoption requests page and Wikia Staff can provide the rights.
What can Historians not do?
Historians should not use their administrator powers to settle editing disputes; for example, to lock a page on a version he or she prefers in an editing dispute that isn't vandalism. Historian powers should be used to help keep the wiki clear of vandalism, spam, and users who make malicious edits, but not for simple disagreements between users acting in good faith. Ideally an Historian shouldn't be considered "in charge". The ideal Historian is just someone who is trusted to have a few extra buttons and to use them for the benefit of the IH community.
