To qualify for rollback rights, editors must have been active for two months with no rules violations. Rollbackers must receive a 60% 'yes' percentage to be promoted. Users who apply within three months of joining will face a three month probationary period. This may also apply in extreme situations such as inexperience or users who were previously demoted. At the end of the three months a review will be made by Bureaucrats and Administrators to determine whether or not the user will retain their rights.
   
To qualify for administrator rights, editors must have been active for four months with no rules violations. Administrators must receive a 70% 'yes' percentage to be promoted. Those applying for adminship will likely be asked questions on how they deal with certain situations. This is to see if a user has the capabilities of being an administrator.

It has been put forward that [[User:Messi1983|Messi1983]] is to be demoted to patroller due to being too inactive to take part in his duties. This vote will be up for 7 days, in which time if Messi is to become active again this vote will be taken down. Please cast your vote below.

Hi, My name is Kingrhem and I'm asking for Patroller rights to make this wiki clean from any errors . I have a hundred edits on this wiki, my grammar is very good and I have been a active for about month. I'm available for 10 hours a day. And I know a-lot about the GTA Series.[[User:Kingrhem|Kingrhem]] ([[User talk:Kingrhem|talk]]) 14:03, June 12, 2013 (UTC)

*As below, with the request that also failed, you haven't been on here long enough. I agree with McJeff in that I don't think you're worthy for promotion until you've been on here for about three months. Also, your grammar doesn't appear to be quite as good as you say; even your request paragraph has a few errors that, if I saw them on an information page, I would cringe at and take time to correct.

*Around 250 to 400 edits are enough to meet Patroller prerequisites, but they need to be good quality edits, not just adding a letters to a word or commenting on blogs.

*He usually edits on a 10 day interval which is quite less for a Bureaucrat.[[User:Myth hunter|Myth]]([[User Talk:Myth hunter|Leave your threats here]]/[[Special:Contributions/Myth_hunter|Want to Stalk?]]) 12:11, June 18, 2015 (UTC)

*Dan still visits regularly and with the number of extremely active staff we now have, there isn't a lot for him to be seen actively doing. That doesn't mean he's not still willing to perform the duties, just that everyone else is beating him to the punch. I don't see the need nor the policy breach to warrant enforced demotion at this time. [[User:Smurfynz|smurfy]] <sup><small>([[User_talk:Smurfynz|coms]])</small></sup> 12:22, June 18, 2015 (UTC)
  +
*As Leon (I think) suggested, I'd postpone this until 1 August, which would be two months from Dan's inactivity status date. Following my previous experience of demotion situations, I'm treading a lot more carefully this time around, as I don't want to feel like I've "hounded out" staff members. <font size="5" face="Old English Text MT"><b>[[User:SJWalker|Sam]]</b></font> [[User talk:SJWalker|<font face="Old English Text MT"><sup>Talk</sup></font>]] 12:33, June 18, 2015 (UTC)

*For the past couple of months, Messi contributions almost exclusive boils down to edits in his user page or leaving messages to other users. He honestly doesn't strike me a someone who wants to keep contributing to this wikia all that much. (But that's just my interpretation of the situation, it doesn't mean I'm right) Regardless, I don't think that we should give him a free pass, just because the other members of the staff are already doing a good job in keeping this wikia on a good state. If he is not willing to contribute to this wikia all that much, theres a lot of other users who are, and keeping this users away from becoming patrollers or admins just because one single bureaucrat absence is not missed by the others sounds unfair to me. If he doesn't get demoted, at least move him to inactive or something. - [[User:558050|<span style="color:#FF6600">'''DLVIII'''</span>]] [[User talk:558050|<span style="color:#00008b">Talk</span>]] 12:41, June 18, 2015 (UTC)

*I understand Sean's point of view, however, i'm not judging him but his life appears to be too busy to be here, so I agree that he should leave, as wiki could be too stressfull for him.

*In my opinion demoting him would be excessive now. Like Sam said, I would give him more time. He is a good bureaucrat with experience and I think he can still contribute positively to the wiki. [[User:DocVinewood|DocVinewood]] ([[User talk:DocVinewood|talk]]) 14:10, June 18, 2015 (UTC)
  +
*I don't want to sound harsh or anything, but I have edited here from since August 2013. From that point on to now, Messi hardly ever edited or used his rights. I honestly feel he doesn't take interest in the wiki as a bureaucrat should. Sure he's said he'd show up more often when Tom had given the wiki over to Vault Boy, which he did, but shortly went back to being inactive. I feel the wiki can run smoothly on two bureaucrats and I even wouldn't mind being a b'crat here. I feel giving Messi more time to edit isn't worth it; he's been inactive for over a year before Tom and Ilan resigned. It isn't worth the time.

*Dan isn't active enough to be a Bureaucrat, maybe he could move to Patroller, but when I spoke to Tom around the time he was moved to inactive, the decision would be wait until August 1, so that Dan could make a decision. If we reopen the vote again in August I'd vote in favour if his activity didn't pick up. As stated, he doesn't edit pages, just his user page and talk pages. [[User:Leon Davis|Leo68]] ([[User talk:Leon Davis|talk]]) 18:23, June 19, 2015 (UTC)
  +
*I am not going to vote, because Dan (Messi) is a good friend of mine. I have no intention of voting to demote him, but I'm not neutral and my vote wouldn't be fair to the community. I did however remove VaultBoy's statement about this vote being open only to staff. Staff only votes should only happen in very, ''very'' specific instances, and anyway Wikia Staff wouldn't accept this discussion if it were staff only even if it does pass. Bureaucrats aren't just allowed but ''supposed'' to use their better judgment when it comes to things like possible troll or meatpuppet/sockpuppet votes, so that's not a reason to make a vote staff only. Also, remember that this is not a majority vote, since this is a bureaucrat vote it would need a 70% "demote" margin for him to be demoted. <b>[[User:McJeff|Jeff]]</b> ([[User_talk:McJeff|talk]]·[[Special:Contributions/McJeff|stalk]]) 03:29, June 20, 2015 (UTC)
  +
*I've just looked on the [[GTA Wiki:Staff|Staff]] page and the inactive staff section states that ''bureaucrats and administrators who go inactive are automatically demoted to patroller by policy - no community vote required''. In that case, wouldn't Dan automatically have been demoted without the need for this vote? <font size="5" face="Old English Text MT"><b>[[User:SJWalker|Sam]]</b></font> [[User talk:SJWalker|<font face="Old English Text MT"><sup>Talk</sup></font>]] 15:56, June 21, 2015 (UTC)

**I looked at it. There should be an inactivity of 3 months before listing a staff member as inactive and demoting them to patroller.[[User:Myth hunter|Myth]]([[User Talk:Myth hunter|Leave your threats here]]/[[Special:Contributions/Myth_hunter|Want to Stalk?]]) 16:08, June 21, 2015 (UTC)

***Bureaucrats can't demote other bureaucrats. They can promote and demote chat mods, patrollers and administrators, but can only demote themselves. So to get a bureaucrat demoted you need to ask Wikia Staff to do it. Wikia Staff won't unless they believe "community consensus" exists to do so - in other words there needs to be a large majority of people in favor of demoting. Over on Bully Fanon Wiki they made us keep a discussion open for 2 weeks over whether to demote the inactive bureaucrat who hadn't logged in for 2 years.<br />I also noticed that VaultBoy demoted most of the inactive administrators/patrollers against policy and without holding a discussion on whether to do so, fwiw. <b>[[User:McJeff|Jeff]]</b> ([[User_talk:McJeff|talk]]·[[Special:Contributions/McJeff|stalk]]) 19:17, June 21, 2015 (UTC)

**Oh, I forgot about to tell about that ban in September. It was lifted the next day I was blocked. LSVault blocked me because I added some information on a wiki from GTA Wiki. At that time I didn't know about the plagiarism rule. I removed the info I added and talked to Vault and my block was lifted.[[User:Myth hunter|Myth hunter]]

*I agree. Some more weeks will give you more chances. Your work has been great, so far, but you need some more time to consolidate and run for patrollership again.

*It is a good idea to wait on an editor who has just started out and may not be fully commited. However, in your case you seem to be very much into bettering the GTA Wiki. Your grammar and overall skills are what fit the patroller title; so I don't belive it's necessary to wait a month on a perfectly good editor.

*He is a great editor, but I noticed some of his edits on info and images have fanon-like wordings. Despite I told him and Tom that a Patroller spot is open, I'm going to avoid voting because saying a no doesn't feel right to me nor does saying a "yes" because of his somewhat "fanon-phrases" on pages and image captions. {{unsigned|Tony 1998}}

*However the number of edits doesn't matter, what matter to be a standard is how your edits are useful ( for example not adding a comma or something like this ) and remember, you did good edits and uploaded images in these times, your activity is too ok, but it's all about the time, wait a little and you can ask again. --'''[[User:Thomas0802|Thomas0802]] ([[User talk:Thomas0802|talk]]-[[Special:Contributions/Thomas0802|Edits]])''' 19:44, June 6, 2013 (UTC)
 
*The result and the reason behind it seems pretty unanimous. D'you reckon it might be worth getting rid of this and postponing the vote to a later date? Providing Instulent stays committed and keeps his editing up to scratch, I'm sure there'll be a few more yeses after a while. Just not now. -[[User:NikoBellicsBoss11|NikoBellicsBoss11]] ([[User talk:NikoBellicsBoss11|talk]]) 20:28, June 6, 2013 (UTC)

Welcome to GTA Wiki:Requests for Promotion.

You may apply for Rollback Rights or Administrator privileges on this noticeboard. To do so, you must meet the prerequisites, and then state what position you are looking for and why you think you need the rollback and/or administrator tools.

RFPNOVacancy

There are currently

no
staff
positions open.

LockedPage


Requests for Checkuser and Revision Delete must be done at Community Central (and they will probably be declined).

Patrollers are given the Rollback tool that allows users to quickly revert vandalism.

Administrators have the power to block and ban users, protect pages, move images, and delete pages and images, in addition to rollback.

To qualify for rollback rights, editors must have been active for two months with no rules violations. Rollbackers must receive a 60% 'yes' percentage to be promoted. Users who apply within three months of joining will face a three month probationary period. This may also apply in extreme situations such as inexperience or users who were previously demoted. At the end of the three months a review will be made by Bureaucrats and Administrators to determine whether or not the user will retain their rights.

To qualify for administrator rights, editors must have been active patrollers for four months with no rule violations. Administrators must receive a 70% 'yes' percentage to be promoted. Those applying for adminship will likely be asked questions on how they deal with certain situations. This is to see if a user has the capabilities of being an administrator.

Editors with rollback and administrator experience on other wikis are encouraged to apply, and based on the editor in question exceptions may be made to the length of time editing required for promotion.

When applying for promotion, a community vote will take place. Voting lasts 7 days, although it may be allowed to run shorter (in the case of an obvious pass/fail) or longer (in the case of a very close vote) at bureaucrat discretion. Only bureaucrats should close votes.

Application users who are caught tampering with other users votes, such as changing a no to a yes, will have their request closed immediately.

Please submit your requests at the top of the "Active requests" page subsection.

Requests where the voting has finished can be found at

Messi1983 - DemotionEdit

Closed as unsuccessful by Leo68 (talk) 13:53, June 25, 2015 (UTC)

It has been put forward that Messi1983 is to be demoted to patroller due to being too inactive to take part in his duties. This vote will be up for 7 days, in which time if Messi is to become active again this vote will be taken down. Please cast your vote below. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 12:03, June 18, 2015 (UTC)

  • He usually edits on a 10 day interval which is quite less for a Bureaucrat.Myth(Leave your threats here/Want to Stalk?) 12:11, June 18, 2015 (UTC)
  • Dan still visits regularly and with the number of extremely active staff we now have, there isn't a lot for him to be seen actively doing. That doesn't mean he's not still willing to perform the duties, just that everyone else is beating him to the punch. I don't see the need nor the policy breach to warrant enforced demotion at this time. smurfy (coms) 12:22, June 18, 2015 (UTC)
  • As Leon (I think) suggested, I'd postpone this until 1 August, which would be two months from Dan's inactivity status date. Following my previous experience of demotion situations, I'm treading a lot more carefully this time around, as I don't want to feel like I've "hounded out" staff members. Sam Talk 12:33, June 18, 2015 (UTC)
  • For the past couple of months, Messi contributions almost exclusive boils down to edits in his user page or leaving messages to other users. He honestly doesn't strike me a someone who wants to keep contributing to this wikia all that much. (But that's just my interpretation of the situation, it doesn't mean I'm right) Regardless, I don't think that we should give him a free pass, just because the other members of the staff are already doing a good job in keeping this wikia on a good state. If he is not willing to contribute to this wikia all that much, theres a lot of other users who are, and keeping this users away from becoming patrollers or admins just because one single bureaucrat absence is not missed by the others sounds unfair to me. If he doesn't get demoted, at least move him to inactive or something. - DLVIII Talk 12:41, June 18, 2015 (UTC)
  • I understand Sean's point of view, however, i'm not judging him but his life appears to be too busy to be here, so I agree that he should leave, as wiki could be too stressfull for him. EagleIcon AndreEagle17 PS3 Triangle PS3 Cross PS3 Circle 12:45, June 18, 2015 (UTC)
  • In my opinion demoting him would be excessive now. Like Sam said, I would give him more time. He is a good bureaucrat with experience and I think he can still contribute positively to the wiki. DocVinewood (talk) 14:10, June 18, 2015 (UTC)
  • I don't want to sound harsh or anything, but I have edited here from since August 2013. From that point on to now, Messi hardly ever edited or used his rights. I honestly feel he doesn't take interest in the wiki as a bureaucrat should. Sure he's said he'd show up more often when Tom had given the wiki over to Vault Boy, which he did, but shortly went back to being inactive. I feel the wiki can run smoothly on two bureaucrats and I even wouldn't mind being a b'crat here. I feel giving Messi more time to edit isn't worth it; he's been inactive for over a year before Tom and Ilan resigned. It isn't worth the time. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 19:28, June 18, 2015 (UTC)Smashbro8
  • Well, for now, my vote is neutral because I don't know too much about Messi. It's hard to tell something for cases like this one, so uhh... neutral. Body Armor Android SWAT Cam F Torpedo Android Dispatch Detonator Android Data Files Crate Android 22:19, June 18, 2015 (UTC)
  • Dan isn't active enough to be a Bureaucrat, maybe he could move to Patroller, but when I spoke to Tom around the time he was moved to inactive, the decision would be wait until August 1, so that Dan could make a decision. If we reopen the vote again in August I'd vote in favour if his activity didn't pick up. As stated, he doesn't edit pages, just his user page and talk pages. Leo68 (talk) 18:23, June 19, 2015 (UTC)
  • I am not going to vote, because Dan (Messi) is a good friend of mine. I have no intention of voting to demote him, but I'm not neutral and my vote wouldn't be fair to the community. I did however remove VaultBoy's statement about this vote being open only to staff. Staff only votes should only happen in very, very specific instances, and anyway Wikia Staff wouldn't accept this discussion if it were staff only even if it does pass. Bureaucrats aren't just allowed but supposed to use their better judgment when it comes to things like possible troll or meatpuppet/sockpuppet votes, so that's not a reason to make a vote staff only. Also, remember that this is not a majority vote, since this is a bureaucrat vote it would need a 70% "demote" margin for him to be demoted. Jeff (talk·stalk) 03:29, June 20, 2015 (UTC)
  • I've just looked on the Staff page and the inactive staff section states that bureaucrats and administrators who go inactive are automatically demoted to patroller by policy - no community vote required. In that case, wouldn't Dan automatically have been demoted without the need for this vote? Sam Talk 15:56, June 21, 2015 (UTC)
    • I looked at it. There should be an inactivity of 3 months before listing a staff member as inactive and demoting them to patroller.Myth(Leave your threats here/Want to Stalk?) 16:08, June 21, 2015 (UTC)
      • Bureaucrats can't demote other bureaucrats. They can promote and demote chat mods, patrollers and administrators, but can only demote themselves. So to get a bureaucrat demoted you need to ask Wikia Staff to do it. Wikia Staff won't unless they believe "community consensus" exists to do so - in other words there needs to be a large majority of people in favor of demoting. Over on Bully Fanon Wiki they made us keep a discussion open for 2 weeks over whether to demote the inactive bureaucrat who hadn't logged in for 2 years.
        I also noticed that VaultBoy demoted most of the inactive administrators/patrollers against policy and without holding a discussion on whether to do so, fwiw. Jeff (talk·stalk) 19:17, June 21, 2015 (UTC)
        • Jeff, he was talking to other staff members whether or not he should demote the inactive staff. EagleIcon AndreEagle17 PS3 Triangle PS3 Cross PS3 Circle 19:40, June 21, 2015 (UTC)
        • As it stands yes 5, no 3, 2 neutral. The vote will remain open until Thursday but for now it stands as successful. I still stand by the statement of postponing the vote until August. Leo68 (talk) 05:03, June 22, 2015 (UTC)
          • Sorry Leo but you are wrong. As it stands, the vote is NOT successful. 70% is required to pass - even excluding the neutrals 5/8 is only 62.5%. smurfy (coms) 05:15, June 22, 2015 (UTC)
      • The vote is unsuccessful but I've told Tom that the vote will reopen in August if Dan's activity does not pick up, as this was agreed arrangement before the vote was requested. Leo68 (talk) 13:53, June 25, 2015 (UTC)
