Wikiquote:Requests for adminship

Here you can make a request for adminship and other special user rights on English Wikiquote. See Wikiquote:Administrators for what this entails and for a list of current admins.


Current English Wikiquote policy is to grant administrator status to anyone who has been an active Wikiquote contributor for a while and is generally a known and trusted member of the community. Most users seem to agree that the more administrators there are the better.

Administrators should register a valid email address and allow other users to send them messages in preferences, or give an email address on their user page.

If you want to become an administrator, please use the box below, filling out all the required areas and replacing "USERNAME" with your user name. Any user can comment on your request -- they might express reservations (because, for example, they suspect you will abuse your new-found powers, or if you've joined very recently), but hopefully they will approve and say lovely things about you. If this is not your first RfA, put a 2 (or whatever number RfA it may be) after "USERNAME" in the box.

Once you have saved your RfA page, add it to the Nominations for adminship section. Adminship nominations must be posted for at least one week, to provide opportunity for comments and voting, before a bureaucrat will make the promotion if warranted.

For closed votes, see #Past discussions.

Votes of confidence

See WQ:VP#Vote of confidence

Restricted access depends on the continued support of the community. This may be tested by a vote of confidence, in which a simple majority (50%+1) must support the user's continued access for it to be retained. (What access a discussion concerns should be explicitly noted in the discussion's introduction.) Any user may propose a vote of confidence, but at least three established users must support the need for one before it can be called.

In the case of a called proposal, the user may not use the restricted access for any non-trivial action at any time until the vote is closed. A bureaucrat will eventually archive the discussion and, if so decided, request removal of restricted access by a steward.

Nominations for adminship

Note: Nominations have to be accepted by the user in question. If you nominate a user, please also leave a message on their talk page and inform them about their listing on this page, and ask them to reply here if they accept the nomination. You may nominate yourself (in which case you have automatically accepted the nomination).

Requests for checkuser

Wikiquote does not currently have local checkusers. Requests for checkuser actions can be made on the noticeboard and a steward can be notified if needed.

I appreciate all of the work from all our users and existing admins and crats. We're all volunteers, we all volunteer to the greatest extent of our available time, and many of us are active across multiple projects. But we seem to have issues closing things in a timely manner as a community. This includes RfAs. As seldom as they need closed, there are recent examples like this RfA that went on for five months before it was closed.

As far as I am aware, I have been among our most active admins since getting the bit, and I'm usually around on a daily basis in one form or another. I think it may be beneficial for our project to have another active crat. If I'm not the person for the job, and anyone else would like to volunteer, then I would happily withdraw this self-nom and support any other active admin instead. I would like to recruit more admins, and would love the opportunity for myself or anyone else to close many more RfAs as successful, because I think it benefits the value that we give to the public in building what we all build together. Thank you for your time and consideration. GMGtalk 17:35, 23 November 2019 (UTC)

  • Support per this discussion, which makes it patently clear that this guy is the only one running tings around here, pace his ever-present-in-spirit colleagues. ——SerialNumber54129 17:56, 23 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Support per (self) nom and Serial Number 54129 --DannyS712 (talk) 20:29, 24 December 2019 (UTC)
  • Support per Serial #54129. GMG is quite active, and in my opinion the most active (sorry to offend anyone) admin since getting the mop, and this seems appropriate. GMG has demonstrated time and again on various projects that he can be trusted with advanced permissions. I have no concerns that he will use these rights appropriately. I am concerned, though, of the lack of commentary on this request; this reflects on the activity of the current admin force. ~riley (talk) 02:04, 7 January 2020 (UTC)

Requests for importing right

The import function allows editors to upload specially formatted text into Wikiquote, or to transwiki such material after it is exported from another Wikimedia project. Only a Meta steward can add or drop any user's importing right. After requests are approved here, they will be reported to m:Steward requests/Permissions.
