Wikibooks:Requests for adminship

From Wikibooks

If you want to become sysop or bureaucrat on Wikibooks in other language, please use meta:Requests for permissions.


Here you can make a request for adminship. See Wikibooks:Administrators for what this entails and for a list of current administrators.

In theory, current Wikibooks policy is to grant administrator status to people who are active, trusted, and who have demonstrated a specific need for the additional tools.

To become an administrator or bureaucrat, then add your name to the appropriate list below. All registered Wikibooks users are entitled to one vote, with the exception of the user who is requesting the permissions. Your vote may consist of either Support, Oppose or Neutral, optionally including a justification for your vote. Be aware that other users might express reservations (because, for example, they suspect you will abuse your new-found powers, or if you've joined very recently), but hopefully they will approve and say lovely things about you.

To nominate another user instead, then add their name to the appropriate list below. The nominated user must indicate that they accept the nomination before the voting process begins. There's no point in granting permissions to those who don't want them. Again, the nominated individual may not vote, and the nomination itself does not implicitly count as a Support vote. You must make such a vote explicit, after the nominated user has accepted the nomination.

If, after one week, there is consensus that adminship should be granted, then a bureaucrat will make it so and record the fact here. If not, a bureaucrat may refuse to grant the rights and the request will remain until a consensus is reached.

When a Wikibookian's access rights are changed, please don't forget to update the list at Wikibooks:Administrators.

For archived discussions, please see (oldest first) ... /Archive 1

Note: When adding names to one of the lists on this page, please use the format === {{subst:user3|<username>}} ===

Requests for adminship

Nominations for adminship

Confirmation for User:SunStar Net & bureaucrat status vote

SunStar Net ( talk |  email |  contribs | logs)

This vote is here to confirm that people here still support my status as sysop, and also as to whether I should be a bureaucrat or not. I have blocked vandals and spammers here, and deleted spambot pages, keeping this wiki clean and free, and intend to continue doing so. I can be found at en:w:User:SunStar Net as well.

I also am here to nominate myself for bureaucratship, so that users on Requests for adminship can be promoted, since there are no local bureaucrats. --SunStar Net 10:38, 5 July 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Support User has cleaned up this project - give him the tools and more... --Maingeschij 13:53, 6 July 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Support I've seen this user's edits on the English Wikipedia, and gave him a barnstar as an IP, so he should be promoted!! If he's good enough to be admin (which he is here, sadly not for those on the English Wikipedia!), he's good enough to be bureaucrat!! He's the lifesupport system for this project! --Naja Sckker 13:58, 6 July 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Checkuser reveals that these 2 users are the same (and also matching a 24 hours blocked one) Drini 04:52, 13 July 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Requests for de-adminship

Users can be de-sysopped at their request: inactivity should not be a criteria here, unlike on the English Wikibooks or Commons.
