Requests for adminship (RfA) is the process by which the Wikipedia community decides who will become administrators (also known as admins or sysops), who are users with access to additional technical features that aid in maintenance. A user either submits his/her own request for adminship (a self-nomination) or is nominated by another user. Please be familiar with the administrators' reading list, how-to guide, and guide to requests for adminship before submitting your request.

Regolas adiht

Administrator status is granted to known and trusted members of the community who are familiar with Wikipedia policies. Administrators have no special authority on Wikipedia, but are held to higher standards, because they are perceived by many, particularly new, users as the official face of Wikipedia. Therefore they should take care to be courteous, and exercise good judgment and patience in dealing with other users. Nominees should have been on Wikipedia long enough for people to see whether they have these qualities. Most new administrators have over three months of participation and over 1000 edits. You may nominate yourself, but it is advisable to exceed usual expectations before doing so.

Nominations remain for seven days so the community can vote and comment on the nomination. Bureaucrats may extend this when consensus is unclear (because consensus is subjective, bureaucrats have some discretion, but the threshold on this page is roughly 80% support). Nominations which are clearly not going to gain sufficient support may be removed earlier to prevent discussions that generate ill will; however, as most editors don't visit Wikipedia daily, a reasonable amount of time should be allowed. Some people oppose early removal under any circumstances. If your nomination is rejected, please wait a reasonable period of time before applying again (at least one month is generally expected).

To add your vote, edit the section for that candidate. You may add a short comment to your vote, but discussion and responses to other comments belong in the Comments section below every nomination. When voting, please update the vote tally of the nomination that you are voting in. The vote tally format is as follows: (Support/Oppose/Neutral).

Anonymous users cannot be nominated, nominate others, or vote. They are allowed to comment.

Hogweard adiht

As said by Fr33kman, I think it good to have two admins at least. I would like to nominate Hogweard as a natural second candidate. Among other things, here are some points to him:

  • Hogweard has a long, regular, and steady history on here.
  • Hogweard has made over 3,000 edits, with valuable contributions to a wide variety of topics (geography one of the foremost among them).
  • Hogweard is quite a balancing force in the area of language politics/policy/philosophy.
  • Hogweard is an active corrector of many more minor things often taken for granted, such as grammar and typos.

Espreon adiht

I would like to nominate Espreon for adminship. He is one of the most active users and has proposed many pages for deletion. His work as a temporary sysop on ang.wiktionary has been great, and I think angwiki would similarly benefit from his adminship here. PiRSquared17 (talk) 03:15, 26 Gēolmōnaþ 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Just so it is known, I do accept this nomination.

Self nominations for adminship adiht

Self-nominators, please review the qualifications above. Some editors feel that self-nominees should "exceed the usual guidelines by a good measure," have an account name that is many months old and have many hundreds of edits. This is not to say that self-nominators are necessarily any less qualified than "sponsored" nominations; however, some editors use their knowledge of the nominator as a "jumping off" point for considering nominees. Most voters can be presumed to consider all nominees on their own merits, and there are even a few who look with special favor on self-nominations as expressing a suitable independence. A good solid background is equally important for both kinds of nomination.

Please add new requests at the top of this section immediately below (and again, please update the headers when voting)

User:James (restore/renewal) adiht

I would like to request my admin status be restored/renewed for I pretty much created the wiki, and I've gotten back into OE, and would like to do some serious editing, expansion, and cleaning throughout this wiki to make it a big-tier wiki! --James (talk) 15:34, 11 Þrimilcemōnaþ 2014 (UTC)

User:Wōdenhelm (renewal | 3:0) adiht

I'd like to have my adminship renewed for ang.wikipedia, as the previous temporary adminship expired. — ᚹᚩᛞᛖᚾᚻᛖᛚᛗ (ᚷᛖᛋᛈᚱᛖᚳ) 21:22, 12 Blōtmōnaþ 2010 (UTC)

Endorse and recommend steward to grant for 6-12 months time as editor has been highly active on this project for years. fr33kman -simpleWP- 11:21, 15 Blōtmōnaþ 2010 (UTC)
  • I'm not very active here and I do not know if I can vote but you have my moral support. Wōdenhelm has done a good job here and as far as I can see he's used the tools correctly on his previous term. No reason not to renew his term again. Thanks, --Dferg 10:18, 19 Blōtmōnaþ 2010 (UTC)

User:James (2:1) adiht

I'd like to re-nominate myself for admin. Both I and my mother were in the hospital and rehab for quite a while and thus I was unable to contribute for quite a while. I would like to have admin-ship restored, and get back into the swing of things. --James 17:30, 31 Hrēþmōnaþ 2011 (UTC)

Comment please sign the above using your user account. You were logged out when you made this request. Let me know when you've signed it. Best, fr33kman -simpleWP- 20:59, 29 Hrēþmōnaþ 2011 (UTC)
Support I am happy to see James come back as an admin, providing he is reasonably active. (And, of course, he still needs to sign his name.)    Ƿes hāl!     21:13, 29 Hrēþmōnaþ 2011 (UTC)
Oppose This user only occasionally surfaces once in a blue moon and only contributes stub articles that are less than 3 sentences long. More work will be needed on their behalf to earn adminship. — ᚹᚩᛞᛖᚾᚻᛖᛚᛗ (ᚷᛖᛋᛈᚱᛖᚳ) 03:20, 30 Hrēþmōnaþ 2011 (UTC)
Support James practically created this Wicipedia and knows more of Englisc than most of us.Hogweard 09:21, 30 Hrēþmōnaþ 2011 (UTC)
Irrelevant, however. Admins need to be either regularly active, or at least regularly monitor the Wiki's recent changes. Over the years, for whatever reason or another, he'd disappear for long periods, months (years?) at a time. — ᚹᚩᛞᛖᚾᚻᛖᛚᛗ (ᚷᛖᛋᛈᚱᛖᚳ) 19:11, 30 Hrēþmōnaþ 2011 (UTC)
Well, absence is why I did not accept Adminship (Þegnscipe?), but if James is indeed back and active, he would seem ideal.Hogweard 19:33, 2 Ēastermōnaþ 2011 (UTC)
Perhaps this specific instance of a nomination is premature, then. I say let's give it some time. — ᚹᚩᛞᛖᚾᚻᛖᛚᛗ (ᚷᛖᛋᛈᚱᛖᚳ) 04:33, 3 Ēastermōnaþ 2011 (UTC)
Right-o. I would welcome James's active input, but let's see him rejoin the fray.22:43, 7 Ēastermōnaþ 2011 (UTC)

User:Gottistgut adiht

As suggested me by PiRSquared17, I'd like to nominate myself for temporary admin, primarily for the purpose of easily editing MediaWiki:Common.css page, because my current work on the front page causes me to need to touch on that. I should say that as of tomorrow, I will be away for most of a week... So youse can discuss it well I'm gone.    Ƿes hāl!     10:36, 22 Ēastermōnaþ 2013 (UTC)

  • Support - would be able to handle some of these requests himself. Gottistgut has been on this wiki since 2009 and has made over 3000 edits, showing a commitment to the community. I'd also support Hogweard and/or Wódenhelm for adminship. PiRSquared17 (talk) 14:59, 22 Ēastermōnaþ 2013 (UTC)

User:Gottistgut (renewal|3:0) adiht

I'd like to renew my temporary adminship. Having an in-house admin means deletion of vandalism, moving pages, modifying main page, etc. is much easier.    Ƿes hāl!     21:46, 30 Hāligmōnaþ 2013 (UTC)

  • Support: Gottisgut has been busy clearing and correcting, deleting vandalism and loose ends etc, and the wiki is much better for it. Hogweard (talk) 22:44, 11 Winterfylleþ 2013 (UTC)
  • Support as per Hogweard. If over 5 people comment, you might be able to become a permanent admin. PiRSquared17 (talk) 23:24, 11 Winterfylleþ 2013 (UTC)
  • Support - He does honest work. No reason to oppose.   Wodenhelm (Ȝesprec)   23:58, 11 Winterfylleþ 2013 (UTC)
  • Support His work is of good quality and like Wodenhelm said earlier, he does honest work. I would be pleased to see him as an administrator again on this site. --Stardsen (talk) 12:34, 12 Winterfylleþ 2013 (UTC)
  • Support Like what everyone else has said, the work he does for this wiki is good and has made this wiki a much better place. Espreon (talk) 15:32, 12 Winterfylleþ 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose -
  • Support The only possible bone I'd have to pick with this decision is the occasional deletion of user pages, which I don't think should ever happen. There was a strange fellow that was rambling about Taylor Swift and an Islamic regime on his page, and that got deleted some time ago, although there was no real attack on anyone, or anything, the reason for deletion given as "vandalisation" or something. I don't think you can really "vandalise" your own user page, so there's no need for that. However, that's nothing compared to the quality of his work, like what Wodenhelm said. Helicopter Llama 14:33, 15 Winterfylleþ 2013 (UTC)
    This is long-term crosswiki abuse: w:Wikipedia:Long-term abuse/HENRY APPLEGATE. PiRSquared17 (talk) 15:03, 15 Winterfylleþ 2013 (UTC)

Done by User:MF-Warburg. Now a permanent admin. PiRSquared17 (talk) 13:36, 18 Winterfylleþ 2013 (UTC)

James adiht

I would like to nominate myself for admin / sysadmin role again. I would need this so that I can add in the runes to the Special Characters section of the Wiki, and help Gottistgut with this wiki.--James (mōtung) 13:27, 1 Wēodmōnaþ 2016 (UTC)
