Category:Sysop Rights Request

From Unofficial Handbook of the Virtue Universe

Jump to: navigation, search

Sysop Rights Requests is the place where VirtueVerse users can request consideration to become a sysop with the VirtueVerse project. Sysops are users with access to additional features to aid in the maintenance of VirtueVerse. A user must submit their own request for sysop status and in some cases other users are welcome to nominate other users for the job. Please be sure you are familiar with the role of VirtueVerse Sysops and have read the Sysops How to Guide.


About Sysops

Sysops gain access to privileged maintenance tools including page deletion, page protection, blocking and unblocking, and access to modify protected pages and the MediaWiki interface. See UHVU: Sysop Tools for a full list of these tools and Sysops How to Guide for further information.

Administrative actions are publicly logged just as any other changes are, and can, if necessary, be reverted.

About Requests for Sysop Rights

The VirtueVerse Bureaucrats grant sysop status to trusted users who have demonstrated their dedication to the project and their knowledge of VirtueVerse and its policies. Nominees should have been on VirtueVerse long enough for us to determine you are trustworthy.

While there are no official nomination standards beyond having an account and a basic level of trust, it's important to note that sysops are held to a higher standard of conduct because other users will turn to them for advice and help.

How to Nominate

Any user with an account may nominate themselves or another user for sysop rights. To do so, please follow the instructions below:

To Nominate Another User

  1. Navigate to the User_talk page for the user you wish to nominate. This should be /User_talk:USERNAME, replacing USERNAME with the name of the user you wish to nominate.
  2. Edit the talk page and add the following:
| NominatedBy =
| Reason = 

:'''Nomination Accepted''' -- ''Replace with <nowiki>~~~~</nowiki> to sign and accept''

A user who is nominated by another person is required to accept the nomination on their talk page before they will be considered.

To Nominate Yourself

  1. Navigate to your own User_talk page by clicking the "my talk" link near the top or by navigating to /User_talk:USERNAME and replace USERNAME with your username.
  2. Edit the talk page and add the following:
| Reason =

Sysop Rights Approval Process

When a user requests sysop rights, or is nominated to receive them and has accepted the nomination, please post their information below with any additional information from their Nomination/Request. Current Sysops will then have an opportunity to sign a yes or no vote to the user. Please ensure you sign your vote with ~~~~.

Once a user receives three yes votes they will be added to the sysop pool by a bureaucrat.

Current Users Pending Sysop Rights

Expired/Declined Nominations

These folks have either not accepted their nomination in a timely fashion, or have declined it. It does not mean they should not be nominated again, but consideration should be given to their preferences or life situation.

Nominated By: Ransim
Reason: Another one of those people I really think deserves this, Talen has worked steadily on the Wiki and put plenty of effort into helping out before. I think he would make a great sysop.
Talked to Talen in-game about this, he seemed less than enthused about being a sysop. -- Soul Train 06:30, 11 June 2008 (MST)
