Wikivoyage:Administrator nominations

From Wikivoyage
Jump to navigation Jump to 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.



I am not keen on doing patrolling work, so thought I'd have little use of admins' tools – until yesterday morning. It seems I am sometimes here when few others are, so without too much extra work I might be able to sometimes be useful. I have not been combating vandalism and spam, and I do very little of that work at sv-wp, where I have been an admin for a long time (my main contributions as admin there are page moves), but I might do it at times. I also do not have an extensive knowledge of the policies, but I think reading up before doing anything foolish will be no problem for me (I have made active work on them back at sv-wp, and I will honour the differences). Although I have followed policy discussion and admin work only from aside, my contribution in discussion at the pub hopefully show I can handle working with the community.

I will probably be mostly offline the rest of this week, but I thought I'd better start the process immediately anyway.

  • Support. I think you're selling yourself short. I feel like you've demonstrated a good knowledge of Wikivoyage policy. However, you also know how to find out about anything you're not sure of. More importantly, I think it's clear you can be trusted with admin tools. Ikan Kekek (talk) 17:25, 8 October 2018 (UTC)
