Current administratorsEdit

Administrators are given access for one year per the Restricted access policy. Regular votes are held to confirm each user's status. Other languages indicate the areas in which the administrators might be able to converse with outside project members, or help provide public domain translations.

Confirmation discussionsEdit

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. Such a proposal is made automatically one year after the last scheduled or called proposal (concerning all restricted access).

In the case of an unscheduled (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.

ClockeryEdit

admin since February 2014 (see previous discussions), currently active (contributions · logs · count · crossactivity). Clockery will be reconfirmed automatically unless at least three established users oppose, which will trigger a vote of confidence with decision by simple majority.
  •   Support Rather intermittent activity over the last five years, but around. I have not lost confidence in their use of the mop. BD2412 T 04:57, 1 August 2020 (UTC)

MahagajaEdit

  •   Support Very active, but no logged actions since November 2018. @Mahagaja: Do you still need the tools? --Xover (talk) 06:26, 3 August 2020 (UTC)
    @Xover: I'm not sure. As you say, I haven't used them in almost two years, but I suspect that if I gave them up, I would almost immediately want to do so something I couldn't do without them. —Mahāgaja · talk 12:50, 3 August 2020 (UTC)
    @Mahagaja: Just checking. :) --Xover (talk) 14:44, 3 August 2020 (UTC)
