New admins: Graduate from NAS today!

Congratulations on becoming a new admin! You have heard about "the tools" and perhaps even have read something about them at the Administrators' how-to guide or the Administrators' reading list, but have little to no experience using them. It is often tough when an admin starts to use the sysop tools for the first time. You might be hesitant to block a user or to delete a page because you are afraid you might do it wrong. Here at the New Admin School (NAS), you can use the tools in an environment that will not harm the encyclopedia. After a few months of admin work, please consider coming back to the school and revise the courses to include anything that may be missing. Spending a few minutes here may seem well worth it if it keeps you from ending up in the village stocks.

Please note that now that you are the operator of an account with administrative privileges, you should review your user account security practices.
