This is a list of selected WP:RfA reform projects and RfA reform-related pages.

Yearly reforms

These reform projects are usually large and consist of multiple related WP:RfCs.

  • WT:RFA/R (2007) – compiled a lot of ideas but no concrete proposals were implemented
  • WP:RREV (2008) – compiled many editors' opinions on reforming RfA and some data
  • WP:RFA2011 – compiled large amounts of data, but no concrete proposals were implemented
  • WP:RFA2012 – received a number of proposals, but few were implemented
    • Problems – a list of identified problems
  • WP:RFA2013 – consisted of three WP:RfCs:
    • Round 1 – generated broad categories of problems to be addressed
    • Round 2 – four proposals received solid support, and three went to the next round
    • Round 3 – all three proposals failed by large margins
  • WP:RFA2015 – consisted of two phases (in the form of RfCs):
    • Phase I – out of the problems and proposed solutions, seven went to the next phase
    • Phase II – four out of eleven proposals passed; the question of whether RfA should be clerked was taken to another RfC
      • Clerking RfC – the basic proposal failed, but the closing statement identified consensus for some of the changes proposed

Other major reforms

  • Wikipedia:Requests for de-adminship – a list of de-adminship proposals, and other RfA overhauls
  • WP:BARC – a proposal to create the "Bureaucrats' Administrator Review Committee" to review community requests for removal of sysop rights; failed
