Wikipedia:Request an RfA nomination

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The request for adminship process on Wikipedia sounds simple enough; a generally good editor can step up to the plate to ask for a few more buttons to help out a little bit more.

Considering becoming an admin?

The actual RfA can be a challenge - some people are sure to oppose; there are even editors who systematically oppose every RfA, but don't worry too much about them.

Help is out there, just ask!

Every RfA needs a strong, convincing nomination. Generally, self-nominations are only likely to succeed from long-term, very experienced editors. Being nominated by another user demonstrates that at least another Wikipedian has confidence that the candidate will be successful. Many successful candidates are those who have been nominated by an admin or co-nominated by a second experienced user.

If you need a nominator, why not send an email to a person on the list below? They will happily look through your contributions and should be able to work out if you are likely to pass a Request for Adminship. You can also ask for a brief evaluation by various experienced editors WP:RFACP first. If the users on the list below think you would make a good administrator, they will write a nomination for you. If they think you won 't pass right now, they will explain it to you gently and what you would need to do to improve your chances in the future.

If you are looking to use this option, please remember that there will be a lot of information to look through, it might take them a little while, so please do be patient (a great administrator trait!).

Editors willing to be asked to nominate a user

The following editors are willing to be asked for a nomination, and will review your edits. If they do not feel that you are ready, they will not nominate you, and they will explain why.

  1. I'm glad to see this brainchild of mine has been so successful and there are some great options below. You are still welcome to come to me, and I will give you a thorough review, explaining areas which you can improve on. If I can't see any, I'll nominate you! WormTT(talk)
  2. Kudpung (talk), after you have thoroughly read WP:Advice for RfA candidates and checked that you generally meet my criteria. If you can get through that lot and still believe you will pass RfA, chances are 99,9% that you will. Then ask me to nominate.
  3. CatcherStorm - I'll help anyone I can. CatcherStorm talk 06:14, 22 December 2015 (UTC)
  4. ceranthor - noms
  5. By all means ask, but there's no guarantee I'll say yes. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts?
  6. Sure, although like HJ and Pedro, I cannot guarantee that I will nominate you if I don't think you are ready. List of my past nominations. Regards SoWhy
  7. All of my nominations in the past year and a half have been successful, so willing to write up a persuasive statement if I see a fit prospective candidate. Juliancolton (talk)
  8. I'm more than happy to do nominations. New Page Patrol candidates are the best fit for me, but I'll gladly nominate anyone who appears qualified. The Blade of the Northern Lights (話して下さい)
  9. I can take a look and see if you're ready. - Mailer Diablo
  10. Happy to review here and for other Wikimedia sites. No guarantee that I will agree to nominate, though. --Rschen7754 11:12, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
  11. I'll help experienced, patient contributors in any way I can. KrakatoaKatie 04:44, 7 September 2013 (UTC)
  12. Am an ex-arb and content-builder. I believe in content-builders becoming admins where possible. I am happy to nominate someone if I feel there is a fair chance of success and will suggest ways of improving chances. Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 09:08, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
  13. I will nominate, however don't expect my nominations to cause the crowd to immediately !vote support. Still, if you can't check the X GA/FAs box of any other nominator; or are having trouble getting a nomination because you don't have X percent in the Wikipedia mainspace or X uses of Wikipedia jargon, I will assess you based on non-numerical criteria. I am best at assessing delete WikiElves; however I will assess anyone with clue and sense. Esquivalience t 21:20, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
  14. I have made several successful nominations and hope to make more. I don't get involved in SPI, the queue parts of DYK or file deletion so if any of them is your big thing you'd be better off with another nominator. Otherwise happy to be contacted by people who have read my nomination criteria in User:WereSpielChequers/RFA criteria and consider they meet it. ϢereSpielChequers 13:25, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
  15. I'm very happy to nominate anyone who wants a nomination, although I may not be the most experienced. I'll definitely consider nominating anyone who wants to be nominated :) — Omni Flames (talk contribs) 06:29, 2 April 2016 (UTC)
  16. I'm happy to look at anyone. Read through Wikipedia:Advice for RfA candidates and Kudpung's criteria and my various essays (particularly User:Ritchie333/Why admins should create content), then ask. I can't guarantee I'll nominate though, and might suggest a co-nominator to strengthen things. If you aren't suitable for adminship, I'll try and explain why. See my track record of nominations.Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 22:35, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
  17. I'll be happy to nominate you if you read Wikipedia:Advice for RfA candidates and pass my thumbrules; even if you don't meet the requirements, hit me up and I'll be there to discuss. --QEDK () 04:08, 19 October 2017 (UTC)
  18. Feel free to send an email seeing if I’d be willing to nom. I’ll always give you an idea of where I think you stand, and if I can’t nominate or feel that there would be better nominators out there, I can connect you. TonyBallioni (talk) 20:14, 26 May 2018 (UTC)
  19. Anyone who needs a co-nominator if anyone above or below is the nominator, can call me up. 04:31, 27 May 2018 (UTC) Lourdes

  1. Kevin12xd (contribs) 00:45, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
  2. Of course. Please see my list of past nominations. Like HJ don't be offended if my response however is a "not yet". Pedro :  Chat 
  3. Happy to review anyone seeking a RfA nom. Best, Mifter (talk)
  4. Just shoot me an email. Malinaccier (talk)
  5. Yes, sure, but be careful what you wish for! Bearian (talk) 05:29, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
  6. If you feel you're ready I'll happily write it up.--Church Talk 21:47, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
  7. Sure, I have no problem nominating admin hopefuls for RFA. Racer-Ωmegα 23:48, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
  8. I've been an admin for 11½ years now (although I took a wikibreak, apart from a few sporadic edits, for a few years before returning this year). I'm willing to consider nominating anybody who asks me (just leave a note on my talk page). I personally believe there are way too few admins around these days — when I came back, I expected to find at least ten thousand and was shocked to find merely a few hundred (active) ones. This is not a promise to nominate you — just a promise to consider doing so; provided you have made a reasonable number of contributions and haven't been in any (recent) serious trouble, I'll be happy to. David Cannon (talk) 07:12, 7 June 2015 (UTC)
  9. I'd be more than happy to nominate; I see how it can be awkward when people might not always offer a nomination upfront, even if they truly appreciate your work. I can guarantee that I will be honest with my nomination for you and will only nominate if I see fit. If you'd like to talk first, don't hesitate to leave a message on my talk page for advice, etc. --JustBerry (talk) 22:17, 7 September 2015 (UTC)
  10. I'll be the best for you if you do work in AfC or work in Anti-Vandalism. buffbills7701 21:24, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
  11. Ironholds (talk)
  12. Not an admin myself, but you must pass my guidelines. I've had one successful nomination and no others. TAP
  13. I thought I was on this list. — ΛΧΣ21 4:35, 17 February 2013
