Overview

This is the Requests for adminship page. If anybody wishes to take up an administrative role, and think they can help out in My Lego Network Wiki as an administrator, feel free to post your name here. Your request will be voted by other MLNWiki users. If all goes well, the request will be carried to an active bureaucrat, who has the final say.

Note that, while being an administrator and wielding sysop powers may seem useful and "cool," you should consider whether you will need to be an administrator at first. If you are very active on the wiki performing edits like correcting spelling, you will not need adminship, as such a task is easy enough to complete without sysop powers. By becoming an administrator, it means that you will hold responsibilities in cooperating with other administrators of the site and helping out new members—this job will likely take up a lot of your time, so be sure to think clearly about it first.

Please ensure that your experience with MLNWiki is high enough. If your edit count is 32, then you're much less likely to become an administrator than someone with 1296 edits. Special:Editcount is an excellent tool. It tells us how many edits you have, and whereabouts on the wiki the edits were. If you had 1296 edits, but actually 1295 edits are on your user page and talk page, then your request will probably be denied.

Vandals are also unwelcome here—if you've ever been blocked as a result of vandalism, then your request will probably be rejected.

Please note that adminship is based on your experience with MLNWiki, not just MLN.

You can also use this page to request for bureaucrat rights; make sure you mention it when filing the request.

Comment Suggestions
You are encouraged to comment on the following
  • Does the candidate understand, respect, and obey the MLNWiki policies?
    • (Not everyone on the wiki has a squeaky-clean record, but admin vandals are definitely not acceptable)
  • Has the candidate followed the RfA rules? Voted on other candidates?
    • (Note: If you have been blocked before as a result of vandalism under your control, you are not eligible for candidacy, unless there is an extreme exception.)
  • Would granting adminship actually help at all?
  • Has the candidate warned many vandals using {{warn1}} and {{warn2}}?
    • Has the candidate used the templates correctly and effectively?
    • Has the candidate undone the spam and vandalism caused?
    • Has the candidate alerted existing administrators when necessary?
  • Has the candidate used the {{delete}} and {{speedy}} templates?
    • Have they used the templates correctly and effectively?
  • Has the candidate got a high editcount?
    • Are these edits helpful to the Wiki's development?
    • Is this editcount mostly comprised of pages in more useful mainspaces (main, Talk, Project, etc.)?
  • Has the candidate edited the Wiki regularly? Shown devotion? Left a message when they are going away?
    • (We do not expect our admins to be editing 18 hours a day, they do work, eat, and sleep like you do.)
  • Is the candidate friendly and willing to help new users?
    • Do they, and can they, help existing users too? Do a lot of our users admire their contributions?
    • A good example is the number of barnstars given by other users. Do not base your vote on this, however.
  • Has the candidate received the "Rollback" or "Patroller" privilege? Have they used it correctly?
  • Does the candidate have intimate knowledge of Wiki coding?
  • Is the candidate capable of proper English, both formal (for serious discussions on important matters) and informal (for helping new users feel welcome)?
  • Does the candidate have admin experience on any other Wikis?


You are not encouraged to comment on the following
  • The candidate has a nice userpage or shop.
  • The candidate participates in shop trades frequently.
  • The candidate has loads of shop barnstars!
  • In fact, anything to do with shops.
  • The Wiki does not need another admin right now (unless there is an entire spree of votes on this subject.)
  • The candidate has a good sense of humor.
    • Though, as mentioned above, a friendly attitude is good.
  • The candidate voted against in my RfA (so I'm retaliating.)
  • "I don't think you can be admin" (Explain why)
Requirements
Filing a request

The only prerequisites are a user account and a basic level of trust among other users, with emphasis on the latter.

Voting

You must be logged in to vote, and always sign your name. Otherwise, there are no prerequisites.

What you cannot do to the RfAs
  • You may not edit other users' votes or comments unless they violate Wiki policies or are otherwise disruptive (for example, an unclosed strikeout tag.)
  • You may not vote with meatpuppets or sockpuppets, especially if you are the candidate (in which your request will probably be immediately closed.)
  • You may not edit these rules or the requirements to your advantage.
If you want to "take back" what you've said, simply cross it out by inserting <s> and </s> around the text you want to strike out. Don't simply remove the text; it's often handy to see what was previously voted.
Admin responsibilities

Please view these before filing a request.

  • You are very devoted to this wiki.
  • You are not unavailable for long periods of time without notifying users.
  • You act responsibly and calmly when vandals and spammers strike.
  • You do not insult or intimidate rulebreakers, regardless of the severity of their offenses.
  • You respect those who want to improve the wiki - taking the Good Faith Policy into consideration.
  • You are very polite and welcoming to new users.
  • You have sufficient knowledge of wikimarkup and HTML.
  • You willingly help users who have problems and needs, perhaps to explain coding.
How to use

Any registered user can vote in adminship requests or nominations. Each user may vote once in each request or nomination. To vote, simply add # Reason for voting ~~~~ under the appropriate header, or use the following templates, placed under the appropriate header:

  • {{Support|<Reason for supporting ~~~~>}}
  • {{Neutral|<Reason for voting neutral ~~~~>}}
  • {{Oppose|<Reason for opposing. ~~~~>}}

To file a new request or nomination, enter the name of the user who you are nominating, or your own name, and submit. All of the required info will be in the new page, just modify it to your needs.
