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.

    It would be helpful if you could identify some item at Wikisource:Adminship which you feel I have done incorrectly or have failed to do. --EncycloPetey (talk) 21:16, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
    i keep looking for facilitators, which is incompatible with admin locking pages. Slowking4SvG's revenge 23:34, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
    We have Wikisource:Protection policy, by which admins are expected to lock pages under certain circumstances. Locking pages is not incompatible with adminship nor with Wikisource policies. --EncycloPetey (talk) 23:42, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
    adding a "not ideal link" is not disruptive. it does not harm the wiki. using admin tools to force editors to add links, the way you want, is a misuse of admin tools. you are an involved party in an edit war, and you used tools to prevail in that edit war. Slowking4SvG's revenge 00:13, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
    Wikisource:Protection policy makes no such distinction. The policy states that pages should be locked until the dispute is resolved through discussion. But when the other party refuses to participate in the discussion, resolution is not possible. You also assume that "prevailing" in an edit war was a goal; it was not. The goal was discussion to resolve the issue, which is the course that policy advocates, but the other party declined discussion. In the the Scriptorium, you asked why I didn't solve the issue by "uploading to commons and replacing", but two days before you proposed that solution, I had already uploaded to commons and set up a transcription project here with an index page. Thus, locking the page did not end my attempts to resolve the issue. I had already enacted your proposed solution before you posted your first comment. --EncycloPetey (talk) 00:27, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
    i will make that distinction. your use of tools stops collaboration, it does not lead to resolution; i will now cease "discussion" with you; no use, you are invested in dictation not collaboration; i will cease work on Land Birds of the Pacific District, you can handle it. please do not interact with me.
