The Requests for Adminship page (often abbreviated as RfA) is used to create discussion for users who have been nominated (or self-nominated) for a position on the administration team. Users may be nominated by another user, or they may nominate themselves.

Requests are generally closed and must have a general consensus determined within two weeks (or one if the vote is unanimous) after the nomination. However, if the nominator or nominee chooses to withdraw the nomination or the nominee declines, or the nomination is very poorly written (or there is none) it may be closed immediately.

In order to request someone or yourself for administration rights, you must give a detailed description on why the nominated user should be given administration rights, and give examples of their good deeds. If you are a nominated user, you may not vote for yourself under any category, unless if you decline or withdraw the request. When voting, occasional flame wars will be developed. If so, the user(s) must keep their cool and come to a consensus.

Requirements for adminshipEdit

To qualify to be an administrator, you must meet this minimum set of requirements:

  • Have a record of civil and mature behavior
  • No ban history on the wiki (exceptions may be made)
  • Have contributed to the wiki for a decent period of time
  • Must have an overall grasp of administration knowledge (blocking, coding, duties, etc.)
  • Be active in editing and communal matters. (exceptions may be made)
    • Your edit count should be higher in the main content of the wiki rather than discussions and thread; if this is not the case, you are likely better suited to be a discussion moderator.

Voting titles Edit

Not just the standard "Support" and "Oppose"s are used in RfAs. This subsection lists most vote types.

  • Support - A positive vote.
  • Neutral - A vote saying that the voter is unsure about the nominee/between supporting and opposing.
  • Oppose - A negative vote.
    • {{Oppose}} creates Oppose Oppose
  • Comment - A comment.
    • {{Comment}} creates Comment Comment
      • : - a comment made in response to another comment can simply be indented.
  • Question - A sort of comment that asks a question. (Ex. What would you do with your tools?)
