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

The next administrator confirmations are scheduled for February 2018.

Nominations for adminship[edit]

The following discussion is closed and will soon be archived: Appointed. Hesperian 01:12, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
BethNaught (talkcontribs) • enWS activityGlobal

I would like to nominate BethNaught to the community to be an administrator. BethNaught is an experienced wikimedian who started in WMF wikis in 2014, firstly in Wikipedia, where they are now an administrator. They poked their head in here in early 2016, and through that year increased their contributions, and valuably increased our holdings in women's topics and authors. BethNaught has demonstrated adminship qualities, understands our site and requirements—our namespacesl; participates in broader community conversations; shows general use of RecentChanges by identifying spam and abuse. I believe that BethNaught can further contribute to the community if we give the administrator rights. — billinghurst sDrewth 02:58, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

Thank you, Billinghurst, for the nomination, which I accept. I have read WS:Adminship and related policies. BethNaught (talk) 10:07, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
