Compiled list of wikis with admin review processes[edit]

This list was originally compiled at Talk:Requests for comment/Activity levels of advanced administrative rights holders as part of the RFC process. If your community has developed or revoked a review process, please add them here and consider adding a link to your local community process and a permalink to the decision in the edit summary. Please also leave a note on Stewards' noticeboard pointing to your change on this page.
