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.


Jay Jay Marcus Keize13[edit]

I nominate myself for being an Administrator of the English Wikivoyage. I understand the policies and guidelines of wikivoyage, and what is expected of Administrators. I have done quite a lot of reverting vandalism, spams, and edited articles that needed attention. I think the Administrator rights would be excellent in my hands—I could get a hold of tools, and do more in reverting vandalisms, and helping Wikivoyage to grow. I am very dedicated to Wikivoyage, and is oline almost every day. Thank You. Jay Jay Marcus Keize13 (talk)

  • Not yet. Before handing out the sysop tools, we really prefer to see a more extensive edit history. That said, you've had a good start here at Wikivoyage - you'd be encouraged to try again in a few months after you've got more experience under your belt. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 14:31, 23 March 2018 (UTC)
  • I think Jay Jay looks a very good candidate for admin-ship, and agree with Andre that we can make a better determination in a couple or a few months. Ground Zero (talk) 14:59, 23 March 2018 (UTC)
  • I agree with you guys on all counts. Jay Jay, you may be an excellent admin candidate in a year or so, but not yet. Have patience. And here's a relevant thread on my user talk page. Ikan Kekek (talk) 00:35, 24 March 2018 (UTC)
  • I have to agree with the prevailing consensus that it is too soon in your Wikivoyage career to be considered as an admin. Besides, there are other ways to be more active within the community besides being an admin. If you'd like to become more involved in the running of the site, why not take part in more policy discussions, both at the pub, and elsewhere? Doing so will certainly make you a better candidate for admin-ship in the future. Your contributions to the travel guide are certainly impressive though. --ThunderingTyphoons!
