To request for rollbacking abilities, go to Logopedia:Requests for rollback.

Welcome to Logopedia's Requests for adminship. If you are considering requesting to become an administrator, you must read the Note below. Please see the Instructions section for guidance on how to request.

Note to Requesters

Becoming an administrator is a big responsibility. Administrators work very hard to maintain Logopedia and keep it running. This is not something that is handed out frequently or without thought. Only the most trustworthy, active, and knowledgeable users are granted adminship. For more insight into what this means and what it requires, please continue reading.

Before you continue, please read the entirety of the administrators page. You must know the ins and outs of being an administrator before requesting to be one. Administrators have a lot of power, and thereby have significant responsibility. If you do not think you will be able to properly handle that power and make responsible decisions, this is not for you.

I know I can handle being an administrator. What are the requirements to becoming one?
While bureaucrats do have some flexibility in deciding who becomes an administrator, there are a set of base guidelines that they look for in reviewing requests:

  • User is able to communicate in a near-native fluency of English.
  • User has been editing on Logopedia for at least 6 months.
  • User has not been blocked within the past year of editing. Users who were blocked by hackers or administrator abuse will not have their blocks count as an offense.
  • User has not previously requested for adminship within the past 3 months.
  • User has proven knowledge of Logopedia and its policies. This means that they follow editing guidelines, they fix and improve pages, they upload high quality logos and follow copyright rules, etc.
  • User is active in fighting vandalism, sockpuppetry, and policy-breakers. This means that their editing history provides evidence of assisting administrators (i.e. editing talk pages of admins to alert them of destructive users), reporting users, and undoing/rollbacking poor or nonconstructive edits.
  • User is an autoconfirmed, active, constructive editor. If you are applying here, you must have at least 1000+ edits.

I satisfy (or mostly satisfy) all of the above requirements. What now?
Remember that when you become an administrator, you are expected to increase in activity and effectiveness. If you are granted adminship, you are expected to edit often and use your powers responsibly. You are expected to continue doing all of the above and more. This includes logging-on daily, responding to user reports, responding to messages or questions on your talk page, monitoring the recent changes, participating in wiki discussions, maintaining the front/Logopedia/MediaWiki pages, and constructively utilizing administrator abilities. If your request is approved and you are inactive or caught abusing your powers, bureaucrats and/or Wikia staff members reserve the right to remove your rights and punish you accordingly.

I am prepared to do everything you just listed and more.
If you truly believe you are a fit to become an administrator, then we wish you luck! Be aware of how the requesting process works. This is a voting process. All users are permitted to vote, whether or not they are an administrator. They will either support, oppose, or comment. After a request is published, Logopedia editors have 2 months to vote. After the 2 months are up, a bureaucrat will review the votes and make a decision. If 2 months are up and a bureaucrat has not responded to a request, feel free to notify a bureaucrat on their talk page. You are not permitted whatsoever to edit in the support or oppose sections. You may add or reply to comments, but you may not modify or remove others' comments. If you are caught trying to influence editors to vote or change their vote, your request will be disqualified. Cheating, incivility, and harassment is prohibited. The Instructions section below will guide you on how to publish a request.

Instructions for Requesting

Please ensure you have read the above section. Anyone requesting must have a valid reason to why they should be promoted, and understand how to use the abilities. Use the code below to request. Fill in each parameter with what is specified (except the "Request" and "~~~~" part, leave that alone). Remember that these abilities are not given out freely or carelessly, and that they are not for fun. If your request is ignored or rejected, do not feel bad. Take the voters' advice and begin to work harder so you can request again in the future.

Code for Requesters:

{{Request|Username|Reason as to why you should be an administrator|~~~~}}
===Support===
===Oppose===
===Comments===

Example

When typing:
{{Request|User|Because...|~~~~}}

Note to Voters

All users are able to vote, but may only vote once per request. Please note that if a request has already been approved/rejected by a bureaucrat, you are no longer able to vote. In the Support section, users should sign if they think that the user should earn the abilities. In the Oppose section, users should sign if they disagree with the user being promoted. In the Comments section, users may add their opinion to why or why not the user should be promoted.

I'm requesting adminship after having the option recommended to me by NewYorkCity101. I hadn't thought about adminship until then, but since decided I could do more to build and maintain Logopedia. I've been an avid editor since late 2014 and have become privy to its culture and policies. I seek out compromises in edit disputes and always make my edits to the highest quality I can. As an example of a page I put together mostly myself, check out the page for Tokyo 2020. I wish for a good outcome, but do appreciate positive and negative feedback on my suitability for the role.

  • Yes, I did recommend you apply, based on four years of hard work here. You seem to understand the ins and outs of Logopedia and I think you would be a great addition to the team. NYC101 16:45, May 6, 2019 (UTC)
  • I agree with NewYorkCity101, i think you could be a good admin here after all things you did here. Official signature (>Message user) 14:30, May 7, 2019 (UTC)

  • I am glad you finally made a request for adminship, I remember you wishing for this three months ago. However, I would like to see you be more active over the next two months before I fully throw my support in. NewYorkCity101 (talk) 04:30, February 11, 2019 (UTC)

Final Decision

Rejected Rejected. While you continue to work very here at Logopedia, I still do not see you edit enough to be accepted at this time, but please do not get discouraged and keep editing. NYC101 20:01, April 10, 2019 (UTC)

I've been thinking about becoming an administrator for some time now, and NewYorkCity101 has suggested that I should be one, so here I am. Being here since 2012, I know how the wiki is supposed to work. I have been reverting vandalism and filing user reports, so having administrator rights will increase my ability to directly apprehend bad users. In addition, I would like to move categories and deal with broken redirects, which is not easy for a normal user to do. I appreciate any and all feedback from you guys.

  • Yes, I am glad to see you more active and you seem to have done a lot to help in the last seven years. If you continue to help out during the next two months the way you have been, then you will join the admin team. NewYorkCity101 (talk) 01:14, January 23, 2019 (UTC)
  • I would agree that bad users should be locked out, so yes.--Muzzarino 23:20, January 30, 2019 (UTC)
  • I support this request. He has experience. He helps us. So why not? Itogi (talk) 06:40, January 31, 2019 (UTC)

I would like to nominate this user to become an administrator on Logopedia. In the almost eight years that this user has been editing here, he really seems to have a good knowledge of logo history. This user also just made 1,000 edits on the day this request was made, and I admire his "quality over quantity" principle, which shows humility, a characteristic I like to see in users. I truly believe if Ryan is accepted, he will be a great administrator and be a big help to this wiki. NewYorkCity101 (talk) 20:50, December 9, 2018 (UTC)

  • I would like to give support for him to become administrator because he creates good SVGs, he protects vandalism and sockpuppetry, and helps me a lot. He's a useful guy. Signature (Message wall) (Contributions) 23:23, December 28, 2018 (UTC)
  • Agreed. Snelfu (talk) 03:11, January 4, 2019 (UTC)
  • I don't see why he shouldn't earn the rights, so I would agree to have him hired to the team. Muzzarino 03:07, January 6, 2019 (UTC)
  • He deserves admin rights. Itogi (talk) 19:00, January 7, 2019 (UTC)

Comments

  • From an administrator's perspective, I feel that imposing a sort of quality control standard on both image quality and information accuracy would greatly benefit the people who take Logopedia seriously. I would want to be one of, if not the first to take immediate action against vandals or people who flagrantly and repeatedly disobey the guidelines. Even if they have only once or twice been repeat offenders, I would suggest nipping that behavior in the bud, showing them that this is not the place to be screwing around. Thanks for your consideration. --Ryan Brotherston 23:01, December 9, 2018 (UTC)

Accepted Approved. Five supporting users, no opposition, welcome to the team! NewYorkCity101 (talk) 02:51, February 9, 2019 (UTC)

I have been uploading better quality images, cleaning up certain pages, finding missing logos, etc. User:Bianche2006 (report bug, view backtrace) 17:26, January 20, 2019 (UTC)

Support

Oppose

  • While I do believe you are trying to help, I do not think you are ready to gain administrator privileges at this time. If you look at the requirements, one of them is fighting vandals, and I have never seen you make any user reports. Also, I did not forget about when you replied with unnecessary comments on my message wall posts a few months ago, which is not completely appropriate. However, I think you have good intentions, so please do not feel bad, I encourage you to keep editing, because I hope to change my mind within the next two months. NewYorkCity101 (talk) 19:19, January 21, 2019 (UTC)
  • Opposing this request. Same reasons as NewYorkCity101. Sorry. Itogi (talk) 06:48, January 31, 2019 (UTC)

Comments

  • Here's the thing. I did not make any user reports, but I fighted vandalism on the IXL page (see here). I will make a user report about that. User:Bianche2006 (report bug, view backtrace) 21:29, January 21, 2019 (UTC)
    • First off, my apologies to act like the grammar police, but "fighted" is not a real word, it's "fought". Second, we cannot immediately know about vandalism when we do not check page histories often, but we do check the user reports daily. Also that user you reported was already blocked for a day for that action, and you only make reports about users that are not blocked. NewYorkCity101 (talk) 22:45, January 21, 2019 (UTC)

Final Decision

Rejected Rejected. Due to being blocked temporarily for uploading poor vector logos, this makes you ineligible to become an administrator for a full year. NewYorkCity101 (talk) 13:41, February 1, 2019 (UTC)

I want to be administrator since I first began editing @Logopedia. Please! I'm begging for admins to qualify my request. PaperMario64 (talk) 21:11, December 8, 2018 (UTC)

Support

Oppose

  • Right now, you don't have enough contributions to become an administrator.--Muzzarino 21:24, December 8, 2018(UTC)
  • The logos you are of poor quality (despite the images being uploaded in the ".svg" format). Also I'm pretty sure you publish a Fortnite gif (non-logo) to Logopedia. Sorry, I wish I could see better things about you. Darkwing Brony (talk) 23:01, December 8, 2018 (UTC)
  • I agree with both Muzzarino and Darkwing's comments above, you do not have enough contributions to be an admin and you upload poor quality SVG images. Also, you do not state how you will help this wiki as an admin. You wanting to be an admin since you first started editing Logopedia is not a reason to be promoted. What exactly will you do that can benefit Logopedia? NewYorkCity101 (talk) 23:37, December 8, 2018 (UTC)

Final Decision

Rejected Rejected. Banned hours after making this request for edit warring and spamming. NewYorkCity101 (talk) 03:31, December 9, 2018 (UTC)
