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 December 2006, also administers admin bot TalBot (see previous discussions), currently active (contributions · logs · count · crosswiki · crossactivity). GrafZahl will be reconfirmed automatically unless at least three established users oppose, which will trigger an election with decision by simple majority.
Note: TalBot's admin status and continued bot flag are dependent on the outcome of GrafZahl's admin confirmation. Hesperian 09:37, 1 October 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose GrafZahl and TalBot have not been very active during the past few years, and GrafZahl does not seem interested in actively participating in Wikisource at this time. GrafZahl made Talbot available for migration to Wikisource without GrafZahl intervention, and GrafZahl will answer any questions when time allows. But GrafZahl is not significantly active now here on Wikisource, and he/she does not seem to be interested in becoming more active in the forseeable future. I see no point in retaining this user/bot as a Wikisource Administrator. The public assumes that Wikisource Administrators are active on a daily or weekly basis, not every few months or so. That is why I oppose this nomination -- but DEFINITELY with HIGH REGARD to GrafZahl for prior contributions and important bot development for Wikisource. I HOPE this user considers returning to more actively helping Wikisource when time allows! :) -- Outlier59 (talk) 02:38, 5 October 2016 (UTC)
