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.

Requests for Oversight and Checkuser must be done at Wikia Central (and they'll probably be declined).

Rollback is a 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.

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.

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

AndreEagle17  - Patroller

19:32, October 8, 2014 (UTC) Unsuccessful - Ilan xd.

Hello everybody, I am Andre and on Smashbro8 and RainingPain17's tip I decided to request for Patroller rights in this wiki, i'm almost always here taking care of some things and adding trivial facts for vehicles and weapons, I also sometimes have a debate with other users about to merge, add info, change things if necessary, I've been a fan of the Grand Theft Auto series since GTA2 and I know many things about the series, I also really like to help users and calm them down, like in the case of XPanettaa and Jojo6506, so nobody would worry about edit wars, policy violating and sockpuppetry because i'd have a word with them or else they'd be warned or worse, i'll admit sometimes I mess up but I fix it later, but I NEVER ever add false and unnecessary info, so I want your opinion about this request, should I be a patroller or not? No worries about your answer :)



  • Hmm, tough choice, but I'm going to have to go with no on this one. I know that Andre is trying his best to contribute to the wiki, but he still has much to improve on. Especially his grammar. Perhaps if he had more experience, I'd choose ues. Carl Johnson Jr. (talk)
    • @CarlJohnsonJr. Poor grammar doesn't mean one can't be a good patroller. Some staff here don't have that good grammar either. Andre has been here a while and he does have pretty good grammar. I'm just saying. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 17:56, September 28, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8
      • I'm just making sure his not so good grammar doesn't transfer with his contributions to articles. I feel that a patroller must not only be a good rule follower but also a good user in general. I'll re-look at Andre's wiki history and try to spot anything that could make him worthy. Carl Johnson Jr. (talk) 18:00, September 28, 2014 (UTC)
  • AndreEagle is a great contributor the wiki. He is very active and works well with RainingPain17 and Wildbrick142, all of which I suggest should be patrollers. Also, he has helped calm down problems with users such as XPanettaa and Sean.drew.535i. Andre also helped merge unnecessary GTA vehicle pages to make navigation much easier. He definitely deserves a promotion. To me, if you are active, can stop violence here, and help the wiki greatly, you deserve a spot.

  • Both CJ Jr. and Smashbro have valid points, Andre's grammar needs to be a little better, but his skill to be peacemaker to prevent edit wars and to stop vandalism are excellent and if I must say, necessary to the community. I had to call him out on foul language on one occasion but that was a while ago, so I'd say he can follow the policy. It's a yes from me. Leo68 (talk) 18:10, September 28, 2014 (UTC)
  • Let's not forget Image policy either. To be a good contributor, one must remember the standards. Carl Johnson Jr. (talk) 03:21, September 29, 2014 (UTC)
  • Carl Johnson Jr. is point on, patrollers need to have firm understanding of our policies. We've promoted a few badly underqualified patrollers in the past, and it has never ended well. Jeff (talk·stalk) 09:17, October 2, 2014 (UTC)
  • Okay, I know where CJ Jr. comes from, my grammar is not perfect, i'm a brazilian and I have some american and brittish friends, but I never know whether my grammar is okay or not, even my portuguese grammar is not perfect, but I try my best to spell and write things right, about the policy, I had difficulties and after what happened in the Rat-Loader article, I decided to have a review in the image policy, now I understand it better and i'll never do what I have done in the Rat-Loader article again (AndreEagle17 (talk) 20:32, October 2, 2014 (UTC))
  • I'm voting neutral for the moment and will change my vote when I decided Yes or No. RainingPain17 (talk) 14:31, October 3, 2014 (UTC)
    • I decided. You do some pretty good job here, you're now aware of the image policy and I never saw any grammar issues with him. RainingPain17 (Talk - Edits) 18:27, October 3, 2014 (UTC)
  • With the vote having gone 3-3-1 this needs to be closed as unsuccessful. Jeff (talk·stalk) 16:02, October 8, 2014 (UTC)

RainingPain17 - Patroller

20:12, October 2, 2014 (UTC) as Successful - Tom Talk

Hello everyone, my name is RainingPain17 and on LS11sVaultBoy's tip I decided to request for Patroller rights on the GTA Wiki. I've been here for only one month but I am a very active user and also defending the Wiki from unrespectful users, having recently managed of have some of these blocked for vandalizing articles or aggressive behavior thanks to VaultBoy. I know much things about the GTA Series (especially GTA San Andreas and GTA V), I add all sort of informations, and I never violated the Wiki Policy, so it would be great for me to be part of the Wikia staff and help the community with their problems. Thank you :)



  • You have the great makings of a Patroller and have already been doing Patroller duties when it's not your job. I think you deserve the Patroller place more than any other current editor. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 15:11, September 24, 2014 (UTC)
  • RainingPain17 is very good in the wiki,and he is certainly a peacekeeper, all edit wars ends when he starts to debate, with him, we have peace and order AndreEagle17 (Talk) 13:04, September 24, 2014 (UTC)
  • RainingPain17 is an outstanding contributor and I work very well with him on both this wiki and the Watch Dogs Wiki. He definitely deserves a promotion. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 22:12, September 24, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8
  • You seem to have a good history of contributing to the wiki, so, I think you could do well as a patroller. Carl Johnson Jr. (talk) 18:19, September 25, 2014 (UTC)
  • Despite only being active for a short period of time, RainingPain17 has made great contributions to this wiki. He has also made not of several vandals, so I'll be happy to give a yes vote to this user. Leo68 (talk) 06:43, September 27, 2014 (UTC)
  • I see that he's active and has quality edits. I myself can't be very active right now, so I think that Pain could help the Wiki.Dodo8 <span style="color:#FF6600; font-family:Cooper Black>Talk 11:30, September 27, 2014 (UTC)
  • I'm sorry, but I change my vote to neutral. RainingPain may be a good contributor, but he must still work on trying to keep things civil. I do not want to say no, but again, I do not want to be too hasty with voting. Especially some of Raining's comments when editing and the usage of insults. Carl Johnson Jr. (talk) 18:41, October 2, 2014 (UTC)
    • Guess that's that. But, either way, these comments are still in Raining's history. Carl Johnson Jr. (talk) 01:14, October 3, 2014 (UTC)
      • CJ Jr. he had a reason to say this, this guy XPanettaa completely annoy Rain everytime, to the point that i had to talk to him to stop disturbing rain, i mean, Rain was done being nice with X, everyone here gets tired of some users, even bureaucrats, Rain's attitude was about how much he was annoyed by X, not about his general behavior (AndreEagle17 (talk) 02:03, October 3, 2014 (UTC))
