Current administrators[edit]

Administrators are given access for one year per the Restricted access policy. Regular votes are held to confirm each user's status. Other languages indicate the areas in which the administrators might be able to converse with outside project members, or help provide public domain translations.

Confirmation discussions[edit]

Restricted access depends on the continued support of the community. This may be tested by a vote of confidence, in which a simple majority (50%+1) must support the user's continued access for it to be retained. (What access a discussion concerns should be explicitly noted in the discussion's introduction.) Any user may propose a vote of confidence, but at least three established users must support the need for one before it can be called. Such a proposal is made automatically one year after the last scheduled or called proposal (concerning all restricted access).

In the case of an unscheduled (called) proposal, the user may not use the restricted access for any non-trivial action at any time until the vote is closed. A bureaucrat will eventually archive the discussion and, if so decided, request removal of restricted access by a steward.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support continuing as an active administrator, but Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose continuing as a bureaucrat for no logged actions after 2012-11-17 with nothing personal. Bureaucrats' roles have reduced when no longer able to rename users. At my peak, I was once a bureaucrat on four wikis, but I have quit all of these flags. I was once asked about having no bureaucrat log on Wikimedia Commons for 4 months. [1] I did not have to quit, but I voluntarily left and found being an administrator but no bureaucrat much easier. Kindly asking you to reconsider your bureaucrat flag, I do support your continuing as an administrator. Thanks.--Jusjih (talk) 03:13, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
    I am the active 'crat here; I do the monthly admin closures and promotions, and I was previously doing the renames. I'm afraid I don't leave much for Zhaladshar and BirgitteSB to do. However, the very fact of my higher activity and involvement makes it more likely that I will sometimes encounter a conflict of interest or some other reason to recuse from making a tough call. This has happened from time to time, and it has been a comfort to me personally, and of benefit to the site, that we have other 'crats we can turn to, who are community 'insiders', yet are reliably uninvolved in any issues of the day. Hesperian 03:27, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
    Yes. You are the most bureaucrat, but in case any conflict of interest is a concern with just 3 bureaucrats, phasing out all bureaucrats to turn over the roles to disinterested stewards would be more efficient for long term. This has happened on Chinese Wikisource, Chinese Wikibooks, and Chinese Wiktionary where all bureaucrats including myself are gone.--Jusjih (talk) 02:01, 6 May 2015 (UTC)
