Currently, the Requests for Forum Adminship are under the RFA pages, and as a result, there are very few, if any, guidelines for what a user should have under their belt before running for forum admin. Many users are generally more active in the YG and the rest of the community than they are in the mainspace, so adminship is something they would be unlikely to achieve, however the absence of a specific forum adminship guide makes it difficult to know how much a user should do before being nominated.

Before the inevitable "They should aim for the same" comes up, it is harder to achieve 1000 Forum/RuneScape edits than it is to achieve 1000 mainspace edits. This is because the mainspace is gigantic, and has countless things to improve, while the forums and RuneScape namespaces are discussions, and there are not nearly as many open discussions on the forums as there are articles that can be improved.

I have also created a sample of what the page could look like in my sandbox. Real Mad 16:02, November 29, 2010 (UTC)
