Registered users may choose to apply for adminship if they wish to have extra rights to Nitrome Wiki. These rights include, but are not limited to, deleting pages, blocking users and importing pages from another Wiki.
For more information about what administrators do and the current administrators of this Wiki, see Project:Administrators.
To become an admin, a bureaucrat on the Wiki must make the user one. A list of changes to user rights can be found at Special:Logs/UserRights. Users who wish to become admins may use this page to do so.
The Wiki has put out several prerequisites users must satisfy before asking for admin rights. If you are interested in becoming an admin, please review them before making a request.
- Have at least 200 edits made on their account.
- Read and adhere to the policies of this Wiki.
- Be integrated into and well known by the community.
- Have a good understanding of using Wiki code - ie. being able to do bold, italics, underlining text, make links, make sections, galleries, use templates, use Template:Reflist properly, insert images, all this Wikicode coding in source mode.
- Have little or no history of vandalism leading to a block - visit your block log.
Please note that if you are requesting adminship a second, third, etc. time, you must wait at least a month in between each request.
Nominating Other Users
If you feel another user is worthy of admin status, please make sure you have their approval before making the request. This is in case the user does not wish to receive admin rights (ie. applying for a Community Central adoption, etc).
How to apply
- Read the requirements above and make sure you fulfil them.
- In the box below, replace USERNAME with your username. Please make sure it is spelled correctly!
- Replace USERNAME with your username followed by a " - 2", or " - 3" if it is your second or third time requesting for adminship. (Example: Nitrome:Requests for Adminship/<insert name here> - 2)
- Click "Submit" and follow the instructions from there.
<createbox> preload=Project:Requests for Adminship/page editintro=Project:Requests for Adminship/intro bgcolor=#C0C0C0 width=50 default=Project:Requests for adminship/USERNAME buttonlabel=Submit </createbox>
Once your request is submitted, users are open to support or oppose your adminship. They may also leave comments and ask relevant questions. Any registered user is allowed to participate in the voting process. The voting process will continue for two weeks before a final verdict is reached based on votes (however, the time may be extended if any current discussions are still actively ongoing).
When supporting or opposing a request, please sign your username with four tildes (~~~~). This ensures that no user votes twice. When voting, it is best to also leave a comment on why you are supporting or opposing the candidate's request.
If you feel a user's opinion is irrational, please discuss it under the comments section of the request page.
