You NEED Rollback rights on this wiki before you can apply to be an administrator.
We won't be accepting bureaucrat requests at this time, as we have three bureaucrats.
In exceptional circumstances a 100% vote will be needed from all active bureaucrats.

This is a page where users can request sysop and bureaucrat administrator rights. Please read the following regulations and instructions completely before placing a request.

(For examples, see the archive of previous requests)

Procedure

Applying

Users can request admin rights for themselves, or nominate other users (though the candidate must accept the nomination). One or more administrators will decide whether or not the candidate is ideal. If a vote passes, a bureaucrat will adjust the user rights accordingly. Input from any member of the Minecraft Wiki community is welcome, as information from these discussions can help to make a better-informed decision.

Bureaucrat rights can be requested by users who are already administrators. However, these requests are only accepted by other bureaucrats, since only they have enough experience in what is required of the role.

Sysop rights may be applied at any time, while bureaucrats are only created if another one is good to have or needed. Keep in mind that bureaucrat tools are no different from sysop tools, other than more access to user rights management, which is not used very often.

Revoking Administrator Rights

Users may also request an administrator's rights be revoked (and rights may be removed by a bureaucrat immediately), if a current administrator...

  • abuses his/her powers
  • has been inactive for a long period of time (several weeks or months)
  • has not shown any use for the tools
  • has shown behavior unacceptable for an administrator.

(If the admin in question is a bureaucrat, Wikia staff can be asked to remove them).

Rules and Regulations

As Minecraft Wiki gets more traffic, and thus more editing activity, more administrators come in handy to keep maintenance during all hours. You may request administrator permissions below, but it is important to keep in mind a few things:

For sysop requests:

  • You must be experienced with this particular wiki, and preferably other wikis.
  • You must already have Rollback rights on this wiki, and have a reasonable amount of experience as a rollback.
  • You must be fluent in our editing policies, Manual of Style, and other guidelines which make the wiki run smoothly.
  • Your contributions must be of good quality (quality over quantity).
  • You must provide reasoning why you would be a good administrator, and why you require the enhanced tools.

For bureaucrat requests:

  • You must have experience as a sysop administrator on this wiki already.
  • You must have a considerable (and positive) contribution history on this wiki, and be a trusted member of the community. Bureaucrat tools can damage an entire wiki, when in the wrong hands.

I would like to become a sysop/admin. I have experience with both this wiki and many other wikis, a couple of which I own. I possess rollback rights, and do my absolute best to adhere to the Manual of Style and editing policies. I have almost 500 edits under my belt, a large portion of which are minor edits that correct grammatical errors or formatting bugs. I would be an excellent administrator for this wiki because I will not only improve and cleanup the templates, infoboxes, and articles/guides, but I will also to the best of my ability protect the wiki from vandals and trolls.

Thank you for your consideration. QuickWhitt7 (Talk | Contribs) 00:38, May 7, 2019 (UTC)

Hi QuickWhitt7,
Between your current account and your old account, you've now been contributing to this wiki for about 3 1/2 years, with over 1000 contributions, and I cannot recall ever seeing negative changes made with either of your accounts. You've invested considerable time into organizing a few different categories of articles across the wiki that normally don't get much attention, and it seems you are always diligent with your research. I also know you to be a very technical person, which is an incredibly useful trait for an admin. By looking around at some of your other activity across Fandom, I can see that you not only have experience with Fandom's admin tools, but also some knowledge of coding in general.
I personally have no issue approving your admin request. However, as is standard, we can leave your request open for at least a few days, to give others a chance to speak on the matter.

As what Sitb is saying, you do have a great contribution history, and with the fact that your specific reason for being an admin is that you want to cleanup infoboxes, templates etc., I think you would make a great a great addition to the administrative team. I will give a Yes vote. Intellicraft (talk) 19:58, May 12, 2019 (UTC).

It looks like no one is opposed, so I'll be granting you Sysop permissions shortly. SmileySmall

Yes please, I want to be an admin, because I want to strengthen the security of the wiki. I can fix all articles and always be up to date with new information. Right now I have reached 1000+ edits and I have done it patiently and sincerely and I already had Rollback role. I keep eye this wiki so that no troll can mess up this wiki. That's from me, thank you SmileySmall. -Banana.spread10 (talk) 06:39, April 19, 2019 (UTC)

You meet the requirements for editing (the first four out of the five). However, you have said nothing for the fifth requirement. SLScool (message wall) 23:04, April 19, 2019 (UTC)
The reason I'm an admin is I want to add more articles and clean up articles. I have seen other active admins who can delete bad articles (which are usually done by vandals), I also want to be able to do that SmileySmall. -Banana.spread10 (talk) 00:25, April 20, 2019 (UTC)
Hi Banana.spread10,
I am happy that you care about the security of the wiki, have an interest in cleaning up after vandals, and want to keep articles up to date with information. Your edits on the wiki have been largely helpful since you arrived here 3 1/2 months ago, and I hope you plan to stick around as a part of the community. However, as far as your desire to "add more articles and clean up articles" is concerned, you have always had the ability to do this without any of the admin tools, so that isn't really the best reason to request admin tools. Unless I am mistaken, you haven't attempted to add new articles to the wiki until about a month ago, and as I advised you at the time, the pages you added were complete copy/pastes from another wiki. You did say you regretted your actions, and would try not to do it again (and thankfully, I haven't noticed any blatant copying since), but the fact that it happened so recently, and it's something clearly stated in the wiki's editing policies makes me nervous that you don't fully understand the wiki's rules/style yet. All admins on the wiki are required to be intimately familiar with these rules, and help guide other users through leading by example. So, it is important that anyone who requests admin permissions has a proven track-record of following the rules for an extended period of time (several months, at least). For this reason, I would personally prefer if you spent more time contributing to the wiki, proving you can follow the wiki's policies and be a good example for other users in the long-term, before you are granted administrator rights.
You mentioned a desire to deal with vandals, but you are already able to undo most types of vandalism using the Rollback tool that you were given access to a little over a month ago. The only specific admin-related tool you have mentioned you wanted access to, is the ability to delete articles. Spam articles like that typically only appear on the wiki less than 5 times each month, and are usually deleted within an hour by one of the 5-or-so existing active admins (if the page hasn't already been flagged for deletion by another user). Our ability to remove content like that in a timely manner hasn't really been an issue on this wiki over past year.
There are a wide variety of tools/duties that an admin is expected to use in their role, but as SLScool mentioned above, you haven't said much about whether you have experience using these types of tools, or what you plan do to with admin tools if you had them. For example: have there been tasks on the wiki that you would like to have worked on recently, but couldn't because they require administrator tools/access? Beyond the simple ability to delete articles, how can you see administrator tools enhancing your ability to contribute to the wiki?

I actually have one wiki and already be a bureaucrat role, and I know the admin tool, so I can learn more about admin tools and make me know all tools. Then, I can block the destroyer (before, I'll warn them for the first change). -Banana.spread10 (talk) 12:03, April 22, 2019 (UTC)
You have been quite active on the wiki, and you have shown that you want to help the wiki as much as you can. In regards to what you said in response to Sitb and SLScool about what you plan to do with the administrator tools and your experience with them, I see that you haven't had much experience with the admin tools, but that doesn't mean you can't learn how to use them. However, I do agree with Sitb in that it would be a good idea to familiarize yourself with the editing policies and the Manual of Style a bit more first.
-NinjaDogDB (talk) 18:16, April 29, 2019 (UTC)
But, I need admin because I can fix css code and I already understand the editing policies and the Manual of Style SmileySmall. -Banana.spread10 (contact) 15:23, April 30, 2019 (UTC)
I need admin because I can fix css code -Banana.spread10

That is a good reason to request sysop permissions. However, you haven't really given us much details about that. The admin request policy asks that you provide reasoning - specific examples would really help us make a decision. So, if you are serious about fixing/modifying the wiki's CSS in the future, what are a few ideas you have for fixing it? You seem to be passionate enough about the admin tools that you feel you really need them to perform your desired tasks, so presumably you have thought a lot about this, and should have no difficulty providing examples. I'm not sure you have ever really discussed the back-end maintenance and design of the wiki in the past, so I'm just trying to get an idea of where you're going with this.
-Sitb (talk) 18:10, April 30, 2019 (UTC)

Many things I can fix it, especially for the cursors, I need to change link, visited, hover, and active. But I'll keep Diamond sword to body. And the important thing I need to block vandals who ignored a warn, and I notice some admins little bit inactive, thanksSmileySmall. -Banana.spread10 (contact) 12:09, May 2, 2019 (UTC)

Personally, I do think you would make a good admin, but I do agree with the other admins about your specific reasons for being an admin and wiki policies. For now, I will give a No vote. Intellicraft (talk) 14:05, May 11, 2019 (UTC).

At this point, I think you've proven your dedication and usefulness to the wiki. Recently, you've even been taking part in discussions about the overhaul of some of the wiki's templates on Discord. You're also interested in possibly doing more work with the wiki's CSS. Also, I no longer have the same concerns as I expressed in my original response, you seem to be following all of the wiki's guidelines. So, I'll be granting you Sysop permissions shortly. SmileySmall
