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.
 —Restricted access policy


Admin since February 2017 (see previous discussions), currently inactive (contributions · logs · count · crossactivity). Mukkakukaku will be removed automatically unless a simple majority of established users support continued access.
  • @BD2412: Mukkakukaku … has not edited during the past six months and has not made more than 50 edits during the last year. They thus fall under the inactivity provisions of the restricted access policy.
    @Mukkakukaku: You've only a handful of global edits in the last 2+ years. Are you planning to be active again in the near(ish) future? --Xover (talk) 06:54, 1 May 2021 (UTC)

Admin since March 2019 (see previous discussions), currently active (contributions · logs · count · crossactivity). Xover will be reconfirmed automatically unless at least three established users oppose, which will trigger a vote of confidence with decision by simple majority.
