  • It doesn't matter. We just need enough to be able to run on a day-to-day basis with everything under control. Since Zelda wiki runs fine then there is no need. And since there's only about 7 people, each doing their share then all should be considered leaders of this wiki.--Herbsewell 21:36, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

I know it's not important, it would just be nice to know. If no-one has any idea it can wait. Happyjoe5 19:11, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

  • Well really. Are there vandals out there making pages or uploading images that need to be deleted? Are users having disputes over pages that need to be protected? Are there vandalisms that need to be reverted within seconds? Do IP address, or users need to be blocked? Does text of the interface need to be edited?

If none of these are needed to run this wiki, than the only reason we would have administrators is for them to be recognized as leaders of this community.--Herbsewell 21:20, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

I know all that, it was an innocent question. Happyjoe5 21:51, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

How long does it take from when someone is nominated until they are made an administrator (or rejected)? Fused Shadow 15:29, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

It shouldn't take that long; I think people have forgotten about this page. It should usually take about a week or a few days if the wiki has a small amount of contributors, maybe two or three weeks if it's a popular wiki, like Wookieepedia.--Richard 16:12, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

The same reason why all the active admins at the FFWiki are villains (or anti-heroes) and not heroes (One: Final fantasy heroes all suck personality wise. Two: FF heroes have bad art designs) Three: They suck.) In this instance, Zelda lacks a hero that varies in design (cool but repetitive). I used villains 'cause they all have different designs.

How many votes are needed for one to become admin anyway? Oh yeah, and maybe we should add some limitations, like edit count, length of membership, all that stuff? It's not like anyone should become a rollback user/admin right? What if some guy who was a vandal created an account, nominated himself, than had his friends create 10 accounts and vote for him? Well, anyway, I guess it's not my place to speak of this. I want my first question answered though.

Yes, we need to do something about this. We're getting nowhere fast with the voting. Oath should go for bureaucrat so he can get admins back on the ground. But if the gets to be bureaucrat than he has to get made one by Richard who isn't answering our questions, leaving a painful hole in the system. Half of the admins on the board have pretty much left the wiki, and we need more active admins! And has anyone seen Fused Shadow lately? He was even promoted a few months ago. I did a user contributions check and this is what I found: Fused Shadow's last edit was April 7. ShutUpNavi's was March 25. Naftaliash827's was January 14. Happyjoe5's was way back December 19 in 2007. Altar stopped editing here on the 6th of March. Thai went kaput over half a year ago; November 25! The way I see it, it's not three active, three semi-active. It's two active, one semi-active! And Richard's here because he's from gaming wikia. We need more admins. We need less inactive admins. Someone help us.

Well, it appears that there is a lot of agreement about this. It's a problem that needs to be fixed very fast. It's not ouf of self-interest, but for the good of the Zeldapedia. We're not trying to bump you other guys off, but adminship is a privilege, not a right. It's your responsibility to do what's best for the Zeldapedia - and doing nothing at all sure is not the best thing. We need to establish a dialogue with all the other admins and work this thing out.

Allright, now all admins have b'crat rights, and XXXXX, AuronKaizer, and Hero of Time 87 are now b'crats.

Thank you for taking care of this, Richard. But could I ask what the difference is between an admin and a bureaucrat? I'm not sure I quite understand. I have rollback rights (and thank you for the nice comment you made about me on the log about that, btw), so does that make me a bureaucrat? Or is a bureaucrat higher than a rollback user? I'm sorry if I'm being dense, I've been on painkillers the last several days for a back injury, so it might be affecting my comprehension a little.

Seriously, thank you for this. And thanks to my fellow Zeldapedians -- I'm particularly looking at you, AK -- who wanted me to have this job. I haven't even been on this website for two full months, I've never asked for rollback rights or sysop privs...but I must be doing something right if you want me to have them. Thank you very much.

Okay, so. We've achieved a great matter today. However, now that the initial shock and disbelief has died down. We need some rules for requesting adminship. Feel free to suggest your own rules as for this case, and we'll vote on the best idea? Right? Right. Mine are like this.
  1. To request for adminship/rollback rights, you must be a regularly active user.
  2. You must have made at least 200 edits. That does not include edits to your userpage or personal pages.
  3. You must be patient and not nag. This may reflect poorly on you.
  4. 6 support votes are required. Every oppose vote will subtract 1 from your support votes.
  5. If somebody tells you to wait or comment on your request, please make sure to respect the users' decision.

Okay, so it's a mess. It's the best thing I've got right now. It's got too many holes to count, but meh. What about you other guys? Any good suggestions for rules?

What can 'crats do that admins can't? All I see is that they can make people admins/'crats. Seems to me we have more than enough 'crat activity to handle that at the moment. I don't like saying 'crat so much, I feel like I'm swearing or something.--FierceDeku 02:10, February 10, 2011 (UTC)
Can't do much that admins can't. In my opinion, it seems like it can be dropped for a bit, like the number. Till everybody's actually active again. Maybe four or three. But considering the fact that it took wikia a while to remove Kmil's B'crat status, and that he still has it.

Message from metalreflectslime

Why is there no section for "inactive / former bureaucrats"?

Why are there listed bureaucrats other than Oni Dark Link, Ceiling Master?

I think Oni Dark Link and Ceiling Master should only be the listed Bureaucrats due to a security risk.

--Metalreflectslime (talk) 13:35, February 26, 2017 (UTC)

Since the only difference between admins and 'crats is the ability to edit user rights management, we list former 'crats as former admins (because they were also admins). It's really not a huge deal, so we don't make a fuss about everyone's correct former titles.
As for AK, JML, and Minish (who I assume you're referring to), Wikia will only remove 'crat rights if the user has been inactive for over a year. I told them about AK, so most likely, soon there will only be four 'crats on the Wiki. As long as they have their 'crat rights, there's no point in listing them as "former" yet. —Ceiling Master 13:40, February 26, 2017 (UTC)
