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.



request for interface-admin rights

I open this request based on the ping here. As all of you know, I am not active on English Wikivoyage, for a long time and for a good reason. Nevertheless, I am watching the site and occasionally edit the interface, especially when it comes to maps and other features that are used throughout different language versions of Wikivoyage. That said, I am ready to continue with this activity, and will be happy to introduce any changes that the community agrees upon. I am watching the wiki on a daily basis and always come when you ping me (like WhatamIdoing just did). On the other hand, I give no promise for becoming a more active contributor at English Wikivoyage, and I will have no problem to close this request if there are enough "local" people interested in becoming interface editors here. --Alexander (talk) 21:32, 31 July 2018 (UTC)

request for interface-admin rights

I've made changes to MediaWiki:Common.css in the last couple of years, so I'll apply for this right. -- WOSlinker (talk) 06:30, 1 August 2018 (UTC)
