This page is for requesting bureaucratship at the Kirby Wiki.


Rules & Regulations

  • Only self-nominations are allowed. If you are an administrator and you think that another system operator would make a good bureaucrat, then you can convince them to nominate themselves. You cannot, however, make a nomination on behalf of another system operator.
  • After sufficient time has passed to allow all users who wish to express an opinion the chance to do so, a decision will be made based on community consensus as to whether or not the request will succeed. Once a decision has been made, the discussion will be archived and moved to an appropriate subpage.
  • Selections of bureaucrats are not a simple vote count, or majority opinion. Sysops who wish to be promoted should demonstrate a steady commitment to this wiki, and be able to point to reasons that the bureaucrat tools would allow them to do better editing and make this wiki a better place.
  • When supporting or opposing a candidate, give good reasons. Comments that describe in detail why the candidate should(n't) become a bureaucrat carry far more weight than simple support/oppose. Also, support comments that reference only edit count carry almost no weight in the selection process.
  • One should shoot for adminship before aiming for bureaucratship. It is encouraged greatly.
  • Upon request, a prospective bureaucrat may be given a scenario and asked his/her opinion on how (s)he would handle it.
  • For users that have had previous unsuccessful RfBs and are planning to open a new one, consider the reasons that the previous nominations failed. Has anything changed about you that would make a new nomination successful?
