Nominations for adminship

Adminship is 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.

All editors and wiki-users are encouraged to weigh on on nominees for adminship.

To nominate a user, add a section here with their name, and a username (talk · contribs) template below it, along with a paragraph describing their work and why they would be a reasonable admin. List newest nominations at the top of the page. After ten days, nominations should be closed, and any admin can do the closing; nominations with more than 80% support are likely to be adminned. Nominees with unanimous support from more than three editors can be adminned after five days.see talk

Nominations for de-adminship

We have a small number of active admins and bureaucrats, and should clean up our lists to reflect this fact.

Admins who haven't edited or used admin privs in over a year may have their flag removed. Anyone can argue to support/keep the flag for any of these folks; if there's no argument in favor it will be removed. Easy enough to get it back if desired later; this way the list of admins and bureaucrats is reasonably accurate.

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.
