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.

admin since October 2007 (see previous discussions), currently active (contributions · logs · count · crossactivity). Tarmstro99 will be reconfirmed automatically unless at least three established users oppose, which will trigger a vote of confidence with decision by simple majority.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment @Tarmstro99: You have a single logged action in 2020. Are you still interested in retaining the tools? I'm happy to support that if you do—and there's no pressure to use the tools in any particular way or with any particular frequency—but if you don't actually need them for anything I prefer to minimize the number of user accounts with advanced permissions (to reduce risk of account hijacking and other such technical concerns). --Xover (talk) 07:26, 2 November 2020 (UTC)
    Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Although I am grateful for the support, I fear that my recent inactivity is likely to continue for at least the next several months. Moving to all online teaching has proven to be a major scheduling challenge. Although I remain very strongly committed to the project of and will continue to drop in to make progress on my ongoing proofreads as often as possible, I think it’s probably better if I surrender the admin flag for now, subject to possibly reactivating in the future when I am confident of being able to participate more regularly. All best wishes to this terrific community. Tarmstro99 17:30, 2 November 2020 (UTC)
    In that case, thank you for your service. Don't hesitate to ping me if you run into anything that needs tools; and please do request them back when life's general insanity ebbs to pre-2020 levels again. --Xover (talk) 19:02, 2 November 2020 (UTC)
