The requests for adminship page is the place to request administrator or bureaucrat rights.

Administrator

Administrators are users who have the ability to block and unblock users, delete and undelete pages, and protect and unprotect pages from editing. Although there are no official requirements to become an admin, users are expected to be active, trusted and make helpful contributions to the wiki. They should also have a good knowledge of all this wiki's policies and guidelines. A user needs to get consensus in order to get administrator tools.

How to nominate

  1. If nominating someone else, verify that the person you are nominating will accept the nomination.
  2. In the form below, replace "USERNAME" with the username (without the User: prefix) of the person you want to nominate. If it is a second nomination, be sure to add "(2nd nomination)" after the name (e.g., for a user called Example, you would put RuneScape Players Wiki:Requests for adminship/Example (2nd nomination)).
  3. Fill in the necessary parameters of the RfA template.
  4. Under the "Requests for adminship" section below, add {{Name of nomination page}} under the last entry, replacing Name of nomination page with the full title of your nomination page.

Bureaucrat

Bureaucrats have the ability to add or remove users from the administrator, rollback, and bot groups, and add users to the bureaucrat group. A user needs to get consensus in order to get bureaucrat tools.

How to nominate

  1. If nominating someone else, verify that the person you are nominating will accept the nomination.
  2. In the form below, replace "USERNAME" with the username (without the User: prefix) of the person you want to nominate. If it is a second nomination, be sure to add "(2nd nomination)" after the name (e.g., for a user called Example, you would put RuneScape Players Wiki:Requests for bureaucratship/Example (2nd nomination)).
  3. Fill in the necessary parameters of the RfB template.
  4. Under the "Requests for bureacratship" section below, add {{Name of nomination page}} under the last entry, replacing Name of nomination page with the full title of your nomination page.

<createbox> align=center width=75 break=yes preload=Template:RfB preload default=RuneScape Players Wiki:Requests for bureaucratship/USERNAME buttonlabel=Create new nomination </createbox>

Closing a request

  1. At the top of the discussion page, above the header, add:
    {{subst:RfA top}}
  2. Leave a message at the bottom of the page explaining the result of the debate. For example, you could put
    '''Closed''' - [The user] will be given/not given the rights. ~~~~
  3. At the very bottom of the discussion page, add:
    {{subst:RfA bottom}}
  4. Remove the discussion from this page and move it to the current archive (the current archive can be found at the top of this page).
  5. If the nomination is successful, give the user the rights through Special:UserRights and update the list of administrators and bureaucrats.

Questions for the nominee

1. What administrative work do you intend to take part in?
Preventing vandalism to appear on the player pages, reverting when necessary (or doing rollbacks).

2. What are your best contributions to the RuneScape Players Wiki, and why?
Removing vandalism as it appears to be a tedious problem on the wiki.

3. Have you been in any conflicts over editing in the past or have other users caused you stress? How have you dealt with it and how will you deal with it in the future?
I have, as a matter of fact. I'm a creator of 2 other wiki's, one which has a certain community behind it and I had to deal with a lot of vandalism. Blanking pages, inserting nonsense or offensive content, adding inappropriate images etc are all things I had to deal with. I set up a rules page and follow a strict procedure before banning users. Heavy vandalism on a great scale generally implies an instant ban, which I then do. For all other minor issues a warning is first issued, with progressive bans following if the user in question proceeds with vandalism.

In terms of stress, it never really had because vandalism is quickly undone.
