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.



Yvwv has been a great contributor to all facets of this site since January, 2013; see user contributions. I wouldn't be surprised if most of you think he (I think Yvwv is a man?) is already an admin; I actually didn't realize Yvwv wasn't an admin myself until I checked his status a few days ago. I believe that all users who are familiar with Yvwv's edits have confidence in him as someone with a clear record of working to improve the site and readily collaborating toward that aim (so not at all intemperate or likely to do rash things with admin tools). Yvwv has indicated that he would accept a nomination for admin. Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:12, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the confidence. For the record, I am male. /Yvwv (talk) 00:21, 9 February 2018 (UTC)
