Wikivoyage:User rights nominations

If you believe a Wikivoyager – including yourself – should have administrative status or any other user right, then add that person's username to the nominations section below.

If nominated for administrator, the Wikivoyager should meet the guidelines for becoming an administrator. Generally speaking, they should:

  • Have been a contributor for at least a few months
  • Have an extensive knowledge of our policies
  • Have a history of article contribution, janitorial work, cleaning up articles, contributing to policy discussions, and combating vandalism/spam
  • Have a demonstrated ability to work with the community

Nominations must include a short statement outlining the nominee's eligibility in terms of these requirements.

When responding to a nomination, most people choose to express their opinion with a bolded word or phrase, most often Support or Not yet, followed by an explanation of the opinion. After 14 days, a bureaucrat will close the discussion and, if there is a consensus that the nominee would make a good administrator, grant the administrator flag using Special:UserRights.

Bureaucrats and template editors should also be nominated here.

Nominations for administrator

User - @KevRobbAU:.

Reason - KevRobbAU is very experienced and active on Wikivoyage since 2019, engaged in janitorial work in Wikivoyage as the user is frequently on the Travellers Pub. Since this user is currently an auto-patroller now on WV, I think this user would highly benefit these tools. As for the last days, KevRobbAU has been creating a new article for each and every town in New South Wales, which are mostly outlines but still can be used, which compels me to action to nominate.

I don't think he's engaged in any policy discussions, and has he said he wants to be an admin? Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:12, 27 February 2021 (UTC)
Not sure. But he was involved in the filter discussion; which was one of the major discussions here at my time here at WV. TravelAroundOz (talk) 10:05, 27 February 2021 (UTC)
You mean he complained about a filter he was unintentionally caught in. That's not the kind of policy discussion I'm talking about. He simply hasn't been here long enough or engaged in policy and organizational discussions sufficiently to be an admin. I'm very happy to have him as a content-creator, as he's doing a great job at that! If he does want to be an admin, we can reconsider that in a year or so.

I mean, do what you think what's best. TravelAroundOz (talk) 11:00, 27 February 2021 (UTC)
That's really not an argument, and I don't make unilateral decisions here. Look at the text box at the top of his page. I'd ask you two questions: (1) Do you really think he fulfills all the criteria? (2) Are you yourself familiar enough with Wikivoyage policies to have sufficient information, knowledge and experience to be able to determine that he does? It's no disrespect to say that both he and you are doing great content-creation and that neither of you are close to ready to be given moderation tools that need to be used with a longer track record and clear knowledge of Wikivoyage policies.
