RuneScape:Clan Chat/Requests for CC Rank

Requests for CC Rank is the process by which users of the RuneScape Wiki decide who shall be granted an administrative rank in the RSW Clan Chat. A user either submits his or her own request for rank (a self-nomination) or is nominated by another user.

Please note: Requests for ranks below Admin do not need to be created here. These can be requested within the clan or by contacting a Clan Chat Admin once the relevant requirements are reached.

About Clan Chat ranks[edit source]

The basis behind a Clan Chat rank is to moderate the behaviour and content that is spoken of within the Clan Chat and also to ensure that users are following the rules explained at RuneScape:Clan Chat. Users with a Clan Chat rank will have the ability to remove other users from the Clan Chat, so it is important that users who are nominated are mature and are prominent in following the aforementioned rules and will also be respectful of the users using the RSW Clan Chat.

Nomination standards
Candidates may nominate themselves, or be nominated by someone else.
Decision process
The strength of the arguments supporting, opposing, or expressing a certain opinion of the candidate is the main factor used in determining the success of the request (see our consensus policy). Requests must last for at least two weeks at which point they may be analysed for a final decision, which may determine whether or not there is consensus to grant the candidate the rank he or she requested. Additionally, if the outcome of the request is not clear, the nomination may be extended for a further week in order to determine a proper consensus. There are requirements for nomination, as follows:
  • The user must have an account here, even if he or she never uses it.
  • The user must be recognised in the clan chat.
Here are a few general guidelines:
  • Candidates should be well-known, trusted, and helpful contributors to the wiki and clan chat.
  • Candidates should be an active contributor to the clan chat.
  • Candidates should have shown their ability to help other users.
  • If a request fails, it is generally a good idea to wait a few weeks before nominating that person again. Once that person has been around for a longer period of time they can be nominated again. This also remains the case for self-nominations.
Expressing opinions
Any user with an account is welcome to comment on requests. Comments should assess not only the use or need a candidate has demonstrated for the rank with which they would be provided, but they should also reflect upon his or her leadership ability and and skill at diplomacy - necessary qualities for a rank. Remember to keep the wiki and clan's best interest in mind when assessing a possible candidate.

Nominations for rank are not secret ballots. Comments are often responded to, and discussion commonly takes place within the candidate's nomination section. Try to avoid heated arguments and remain calm.

Support or opposition should also not be based on friendships or rivalries. If a candidate has had a disagreement with you or a friend of yours in the past, do not simply oppose the candidate's nomination for that reason.

The following is a list of common discussion markup choices which should be placed at the beginning of all posts within a nomination section.

  • Support - followed by a reason for supporting the nominee.
  • Oppose - followed by a reason for opposing the nominee.
  • Neutral - followed by a reason for neither support nor opposing nominee.
  • Comment/Observation/Note - followed by a statement presenting facts or clarifying a disputed fact.
  • Not yet/Wait a little - followed by a reason for currently opposing while suggesting future support.
  • Notice of intent - a bureaucrat's notification of an intent to either close a discussion or extend it for a specified period of time.
  • {Decision} - a decision made by an administrator presented in the form of {Example Candidate} has been made a {Rank} or The discussion period of {Example Candidate}'s nomination is now over, {Example Candidate} remains a normal user.
Regarding requests for clan adminship
Requests for Clan Chat Adminship (RfCA or RfCCA) are very thorough. The candidates will be examined in more depth due to the wealth of extra clan tools they gain access to: removing clanmates, editing the motif, editing the clan motto and forums, etc. There are no logs for when these are used, so users are trusted to not mess with them - therefore the RfCCA should analyse if the user can be trusted. In addition it should check whether they would use the tools. In some cases citadel edit tools can also be requested, but these are much more seldom used (and also allow users to edit the permissions of admins).

Nominating[edit source]

Nominations must be accepted on behalf of the user in question. If you wish to nominate a user, please make sure you let the user know beforehand.

How to nominate[edit source]

  1. Create a page at "RuneScape:Clan Chat/Requests for CC Rank/NOMINEE", where NOMINEE is the username of the nominee.
  2. Follow the instructions given on {{RFR}}.
  3. Refresh this page.
  4. If this is not a self nomination, contact the nominee on their talk page to let them know that they have been nominated. The candidate must then sign the acceptance of nomination section on their request page.
  5. Make sure that the nominee reads and understands the clan chat rules and rank guide up to their requested rank.

For sysops[edit source]

Nominations for clan admin are to run for 2 weeks. Please take note of the time the nomination took place and close this discussion 14 days from then. If the request is successful, please adjust their rank accordingly in the clan chat and add the user to RS:RANKED. If the user fails consensus, simply archive the nomination.
