Adminship guidelines

While I am completely understand that the RS wiki is not wikipedia, it is clear that they have evolved many good policies and guidelines over time, for the benefit their wiki. I think it be be very beneficial if we included some of those ideals in to what we expect of our admins so no one gets the wrong idea of what it is. If I missed any good ones, feel free to add to this list.

  • [[1]] Advice for new admins
  • [[2]] What adminship is not
I especially love the part about it not being a trophy
  • [[3]] A how to guide

When one of us passes an RFA we get that nice message telling us what we can now do. It would be even better if we included these links to help guide us, and prevent anyone from thinking they are now special or above the law or whatever. Please note, I am not accusing anyone here of actually doing that. I want to focus on the future, not the past. And implementing this would be very helpful in that respect.--Degenret01 07:05, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

I think this is a good idea. I also would really like the whole adminship thing looked at. In opinion, I feel that the meaning of adminship is slowly getting lost. Users are offering support for the purpose of rewarding users, or popular users....It's not about the amount of contribs, etc. but it's about the reason behind the user and the purpose adminship would serve to them. Are they presently active in community discussions, do they revert, are they mature and active and will they use these rights responsibly. I know many users will say that they already consider this, but in general, I feel that the whole thing still needs to be thought about. I'm having trouble actually stating what I want to say, as I am having trouble actually knowing what I want, but I hope that sums it up... and please don't scruntanize me for my RfA' first was really mature, my second was a nomination to early, and my third I closed after a day...I personally know what my intentions are, and seeing what is becoming of this wikia and how important it is to me, I am glad I did not get these at those times.

Support - The adminship process in this wiki needs to be updated, and these pages will be an excellent addition.   az talk   09:05, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

I like it - We could use something similar to Wikipedia for here on RuneScape wiki. [1], [2] and [3] are all very good points made IMO. A magic scroll.png WejerFeather.png 16:26, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
