Policies and guidelines Administrator policies and information
This page provides information on Meta administrators, and lays out relevant policies.
Meta-Wiki Administrator.svg

An administrator is a user who can protect and unprotect pages, delete and undelete pages, block and unblock users, and perform a variety of other tasks (see full list here). To become an administrator, make a request at Requests for adminship and meet the requirements listed there and below.

For a list of administrators on other Wikimedia projects, see Administrators of Wikimedia projects.

For current administrators: Template:AdminWelcome contains some handy links.

Policy for requesting adminship

To request administrator access on Meta, you need to:

  • Demonstrate cross-wiki experience (e.g., be a participant of at least two months' duration on at least one project other than Meta and the "home" project).
  • Have a user page on Meta, with links to the user pages on other participated projects (this can state that SUL is activated or be provided via a Wiki matrix, if that is not possible).
  • Have a valid contact address (either a confirmed email address in preferences, or a valid email address on the user page).
  • Be an active contributor on Meta (this is a subjective, not objective, measure; there is no official edit-count).
  • Preferably add {{#babel}} to your user page, given the multilingual nature of Meta.

Ill-considered nominations for adminship can be draining and deflating to both community and candidate. Any successful candidate will need to demonstrate sufficient experience within the Wikimedia community, in addition to a familiarity with Meta. If a candidate is not already a local administrator or holder of advanced permissions on a Wikimedia content project, he or she is less likely pass a request for adminship at Meta.

The request is made at Requests for adminship, with at least one week allocated for the community to express opinions. The candidate will be named sysop here only if approved by at least 75% of participants. All editors with an account on Meta, at least one active account on any Wikimedia project, and a link between the two, may participate and give their opinion on the candidate.

If the candidate becomes a sysop, they should add their name to Administrator list, and ensure they keep a valid user name page, links to at least one other project, and valid contact. Administrators not respecting these rules will be desysoped.

Exceptions

It is helpful for some people to have access to protected pages on Meta (related to languages files). In such cases, two options are possible:

  • Temporary unprotection of these pages, so that the user can quietly work on them for a limited time.
  • Temporary sysoping of the user so they can edit the protected pages. In this case, the adminship shall be granted with no requirements and approval, but the user will promise to limit their activity to the necessity of their local project. Preferably, the admin status will be temporary.

Policy for de-adminship

Temporary sysop status

Sysop access can be granted temporarily. For example, people starting up a new project need to be able to work on some protected pages on Meta to set up their project. Usually, temporary sysop status will be removed after 30 days, but in certain cases temporary administrators may be granted longer periods or sometimes an indefinite period.

Inactivity

Any sysop inactive on Meta will be desysopped. "Inactivity" is normally defined as fewer than 10 logged actions in the past six months. Desysopping is formally undertaken at Meta:Administrators/Removal. Users who are desysopped may reapply through the regular avenue.

The next formal administrator review takes place on: 1 October 2014 (update)

Removal criteria

  1. Users who have made fewer than ten edits in the six months immediately before the removal date (April 1 or October 1) are desysopped without notice.
  2. Users who have made more than ten edits but fewer than ten actions requiring admin privileges in the same period are given a week to indicate they would like to retain their access. Users in this category are to be notified on the first day, and adminship is removed without notice on the seventh day if there is no response.

Involved administrators

Administrators should avoid using their tools in situations where they may not be impartial. Those situations include using the tools in disputes in which they are involved parties. If the administrator is in doubt, the administrator is encouraged to ask for opinions, or to ask another administrator to take the case to Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat.
