This is the de facto place for admins to coordinate. Some notes for administrators. You can see a list of admins at Special:Listusers, and recent rights changes at special:log.

For older requests, see the archive.


Nominations for adminship

Adminship should be no big deal. Administrators need to learn how to use the logs, the delete and protect tabs, and the block tool; please nominate regular wiki users you trust, checking that they have some familiarity with the wiki.

To nominate a user, please add a section with their name, and a username (talk · contribs) template below it, along with a paragraph describing their work and why they should make a good admin. List newest nominations at the top of the page. After two weeks, any bureaucrat can close the nomination; people with unanimous support are likely to be adminned.

Nominations for deadminship

These accounts should get a review by a bureaucrat, I'm not necessarily nominating them for de-adminning, just noticed these when looking through user rights log.

Recently discussed


Felice (talk · contribs) was a wiki admin and bureaucrat while she was updating pages that were being pushed to the live webserver and handling official OLPC materials, but hasn't been active this year and is likely to be active in the future. To keep the admin lists clean, I nominate her for regular user status. (She probably also doesn't want to receive random talk-page notifications from people who need bureaucrat help.) --Sj talk 16:11, 24 April 2008 (EDT)

  • support as nominator
  • conditional support if Felice herself wants to be deactivated and says so explicitly, on this page or via others means. Mchua 22:23, 8 May 2008 (EDT)
Preserved sysop bit; this wiki is still small. We should work on some automatic status update after 6-12 mo of inactivity. 14:54, 28 May 2008 (EDT)


Cjl (talk · contribs) has been an active contributor since January, and an active wiki-patroller and categorizer, and has also been helping out with the Support gang. Somehow he hasn't yet been nommed for adminship :) I'd like to remedy that.

- I accept the nomination and thank you for the kind words. Cjl 10:10, 2 May 2008 (EDT)
  • support as nominator --Sj talk 05:14, 2 May 2008 (EDT)
  • support as admin --Seth talk 13:48, 6 May 2008 (PDT)
  • support as admin Mchua 16:54, 6 May 2008 (EDT)
  • support as admin Yamaplos 19:34, 30 May 2008 (EDT) dunno how this works or even if my opinion matters or if the unsigned "done" above means this is a solved matter, but I support the nomination even though (or because) I've been the recipient of Cjl's different opinion :-)

Older Questions and Answers

On Administrative tasks

  • I've been patrolling the general edits, does it help? I try not to patrol technical and similar edits that may compromise the hardware/software builds, etc
    Yes, it helps.
  • I'm trying to categorize the site, and was thinking that Wikipedia's handling of subcategories as expandable lists would be a nice extension to have in order to avoid content being lost deep within sub-categories (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Computer_architecture)
    Ahh, interesting point. We should do this.
  • I've been doing some reworks with the Ask OLPC a Question area (mainly writing up /Summary pages for the ... about XXX pages). The selection of questions (and body of the answer) could use some OLPC staff member to review their correctness. comments? should those /Summary pages be protected? if yes, only to registered users or exclusively admins?
    No need to protect them; just keep an eye on them. I try not to protect anything until some vandal starts to make them unusable.
  • What should I be doing to patrol vandalism?
    Take a look at OLPC:Vandalism and monitor Special:Recentchanges using some of the features there : toggle viewing "logged in users", for instance, and you will only see the IPs who have never logged in. You can also visit Special:Contributions/newbies to see contribs by the newest users.
