Wikivoyage:Administrator nominations

From Wikivoyage
Jump to: navigation, search

If you believe a Wikivoyager – including yourself – should have administrative status, then add them to the nominations section below.

They should meet the guidelines for becoming an administrator. Generally speaking they should:

  • Have been a contributor for at least a few months
  • Have an extensive knowledge of our policies
  • Have a history of article contribution, janitorial work, cleaning up articles, contributing to policy discussions, and combating vandalism/spam
  • Have a demonstrated ability to work with the community

Nominations must include a short statement outlining the nominee's eligibility in terms of these requirements.

When responding to a nomination, most people choose to express their opinion with a bolded word or phrase, most often Support or Not yet, followed by an explanation of the opinion. After 14 days, a bureaucrat will close the discussion and, if there is a consensus that the nominee would make a good administrator, grant the administrator flag using Special:UserRights.



As you can see from his contributions and the list of activities and areas of contribution on his user page, Traveler100 has participated in a wide range of fields on this site, from policy discussions to organizational discussions to content creation, in the course of thousands of posts since 24 December, 2012. He has expressed willingness to serve as an admin, and I think it's clear he can be trusted not to abuse admin tools. I appreciate his contributions to the site and believe that he would be an excellent addition to the administrative staff. What do you all think? Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:12, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Support - yup, he'll be a good admin. ϒpsilon (talk) 18:33, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Support - I have no doubt they can be trusted with the buttons. --Inas (talk) 20:11, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Support - he's been a tremendous help with a number of maintenance tasks and other things, no reservations here. Texugo (talk) 20:36, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Support - Good level of community participation and many article edits. Andrewssi2 (talk) 00:03, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Support — How could I say NO. I was the one who suggested this candidate. I believe you will be a great addition to team. Best wishes from Pakistan! --Saqib (talk) 00:09, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Support - lots of great work on articles, maintenance and policies -Shaundd (talk) 15:36, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Support why not? Jianhui67 (talk) 16:04, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Support, me too! --Danapit (talk) 10:05, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Support I've had little personal interaction with this candidate but the nomination by Ikan Kekek made me check his contribution record. This is outstanding and generates no suspicion that he would abuse the tools - which is certainly more than can be said of some inactive and monomaniacal Admins... --W. Frankemailtalk 10:28, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Support — Long overdue. K7L (talk) 13:13, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Support. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 14:34, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Support -- Of course. JuliasTravels (talk) 19:00, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Support --Nick talk 21:45, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

It's been over 14 days with nary an objection. Could a steward please flip the switch? Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:09, 21 September 2014 (UTC)

No need to call in a steward (and they wouldn't do it anyway because we have bureaucrats). I've asked before for everyone to please have patience when it comes to these user rights; we're not on at all hours of the day, and sometimes it takes us a day or two to check in on the nominations page. There's no need to call us out every time we're 12 or 24 hours late. Powers (talk) 15:41, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
Result: Nomination successful. Powers (talk) 15:42, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
Ah yes, I forgot about Bureaucrats and was misremembering you as being a Steward. Anyway, I wasn't being impatient, just posting a reminder. Ikan Kekek (talk) 15:55, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
