This page is currently under construction.
The information contained within should not be considered fully accurate and/or complete.

Here I plan to put a new revised and redesigned Community Portal. The current one is not using its full potential. It needs a complete revival. User:Quarenon will probably help me with coding and design, but let me know if you want to too. Cheers, Chicken7 >talk 07:05, January 11, 2010 (UTC)

Below I plan to put in each of the "boxes" on the page, although I've already fiddle around with an idea. A planned "icon" for each box is above the headers.

Requests for adminship[edit | edit source]

For help with issues requiring an administrator, see RS:AR.
For general information about administrators, see RS:A.

A request for adminship (RfA) is the process by which users of the RuneScape Wiki can request access to the administrator (sometimes also referred to as sysop) or bureaucrat user groups. Administrator's tools include the ability to block users from editing, to delete and protect pages, and grant editors access to the rollback and custodian usergroups. For more information on administrators and their tools, please see the administrators page. Users with the bureaucrat right have access to all administrators' tools and have responsibility for determining consensus on requests for adminship and for granting access to the administrator user group to successful candidates.

Any registered user may nominate another registered user for administrative rights, or a user may be self-nominated. Candidates for bureaucratship must already have sysops user rights. Requests are public discussions; all users are encouraged to comment on whether they believe that the nominee should be granted adminship. Requests must last for at least two weeks at which point they may be analysed for a final decision: the strength of the arguments supporting, opposing, or expressing a certain opinion of the candidate is used to determine the success of the request as per the wiki's consensus policy. If the outcome of the request is not clear, the nomination may be extended for a further period of time in order to determine a proper consensus.

Requirements[edit source]

While the only hard requirement for candidates is to have a wiki account, users within the community have their own expectations of administrators against which they judge potential new administrators during the RFA process. Some common expectations involve:

  • Duration and breadth of editing history
  • Appropriate/positive interaction with other users on the wiki and off-site
  • Understanding of the community's ethos and established policies
  • Trustworthiness/good judgment

Comments should assess the suitability of the candidate to be entrusted with the tools associated with adminiship as well as the responsibility of being viewed as a representative of the wiki community. Further insight into community expectations can be gained from previous requests.

Nominating[edit source]

Nominations must be accepted by the user in question. If you wish to nominate a user, make sure you let the user know before creating the request.

How to nominate[edit source]

  1. Create a page at "RuneScape:Requests for adminship/NOMINEE" or "RuneScape:Requests for bureacrat/NOMINEE", where NOMINEE is the username of the nominee.
    1. If this is not the first RfA for the user (or is an RfB) add /# to the page name.
    2. Add a link to the previous nomination to the request.
  2. Follow the instructions given on {{RFA}}, or {{RFB}} (depending on the nature of the nomination) to fill out the request.
  3. Fill in another row of the summary table below with the nominee's information.
  4. The candidate must then sign the acceptance of nomination section on their request page.
