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.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Hi all! I am unfortunately extremely inactive here, largely due to the workload over at enwiki. Although I am an administrator here, I'm not sure I've ever used the tools. Though I do hope to come back when I get more time, it will be to work on transcriptions, and I don't foresee needing the admin tools. I certainly feel I'm trustworthy enough to use them (or not use them, as it were), but I don't personally think I'm liable to use them much or at all. GorillaWarfare (talk) 00:57, 7 July 2015 (UTC)


Administrator since November 2006, checkuser since February 2011 (see previous discussions), currently active (contributions · logs · count · crosswiki).
