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.

RFPVacancy

There are currently

2
Patroller
positions open.

Please apply below if you are interested.

RFPVacancy


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. They are also given Chat moderator rights that allow them to kick and ban users from the wiki's chat.

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 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

Andyxdr - Patroller

Closed as successful subject to probation by LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 12:57, July 25, 2015 (UTC)

Hey guys, I kind of want to be a patroller on this wiki. I've been active for two months and even though some of my edits have been deleted, I still think I've obeyed the rules. I think I'll be a decent patroller but I don't know if you'll approve. So what do you think? Can I be a patroller, or not? Andy Ashley (talk) 15:23, July 24, 2015 (UTC)

  • Your edits look good from what I've seen, but you've been here only for four months so probation will be necessary. WildBrick142 (Talk) 17:24, July 24, 2015 (UTC)
  • You've helped correct some pages in my place when I've been busy, which I thank you for, and you are definitely improving. However, taking into account the fact I had to block you (which you have learnt from) relatively early and the fact you are still a relatively new user, I think probation would be best. Sam Talk 17:38, July 24, 2015 (UTC)
  • You are a very good user and you are continuously improving. You are a good editor, no doubt, but some of your edits need to be undone. I am sure you will be a great patroller, but I think you should do the probation. Myth(Leave your threats here/Want to Stalk?) 17:50, July 24, 2015 (UTC)

MarcusCheeKJ - Patroller

Closed as successful by Leo68 (talk) 20:43, July 11, 2015 (UTC)

Hi everyone! I'm Marcus, and I have decided to apply for patroller on this wiki with the recommendation of some of the staffs here. Though I have not been a patroller in any wiki, but I have been a student leader in my school. Leadership is required for postions like these, as for a student leader, you have to use your leadership to lead the school, while you need to use your leadership to lead the wiki in the right direction and prevent vandalism when you are a staff in this wiki. This is what I am determined to do when I become a patroller, and I'll use my tools wisely. Apart from protecting the wiki from vandalism, I would always keep my promise to continue to work on projects that I have not completed (for e.g. Transcripts in GTA IV). I hope that with my leadership skills, I will be able to lead the wiki in the right direction, and free of vandalism. Thanks for reading this! MC (MyComputer) 23:36, July 10, 2015 (UTC)

  • Hard working and has progressed really well since joining us only four months ago. No need for probation, he's experienced enough already. Leo68 (talk) 23:44, July 10, 2015 (UTC)
  • As one of the "sponsors" who has recommended Marcus for the role, it is an obvious yes from me. Actively taking an interest in the inner workings of the wiki since he joined and has been a fast learner of the policies. Like many before him, has effectively been performing a patroller role without the title for a while with vigilant monitoring of recent activity and media uploads. Agreed that no probation necessary. smurfy (coms) 00:18, July 11, 2015 (UTC)
  • Marcus is an experienced and polite person in this wiki, appart that is friendly with the staff members. He practically deserves the spot. Body Armor Android SWAT Cam F Torpedo Android Dispatch Detonator Android Data Files Crate Android 04:52, July 11, 2015 (UTC)
  • Marcus is a brilliant, calm and respective editor. Taking into consideration his age, and the mood swings that are common in teenagers going through such events, he is so mature. I can really see some potential in him. Thank you for requesting like a suggested, you deserve this. Monkeypolice188-Signature LSPD Loudhailer-V-render StunGun-GTA5-ingame 11:45, July 11, 2015 (UTC)

558050 - Administrator

Closed as successful by LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 10:27, July 10, 2015 (UTC)

Hello everybody. With the recently resignation of Messi1983 and promotion of Smashbro8, I decided to send my request to become the next admin. I don't think I have to introduce myself, since all members of the staff already know me and most of the wikia users (at least the more active ones) too. I have been on this wikia for almost two years now, I have been contributing with the creation of a lot of pages, some minor cleanups and formatting to make the articles more "presentable". I have been less active for the past month, thanks to some personal problems, but I should be back full time now. Despite my lack of active recently, I still make daily visits to the wikia to see if everything is in check. I want to become a admin for multiple reasons, the tools would definetely help me adit this wikia more efficiently, I also would be able to deal with vandals or problematic users better, and so on. I leave my request here and thank you for taking your time to read this. DLVIII Talk 17:20, July 9, 2015 (UTC)

  • 558 really deserves the spot. An active user who uses his rollback tools regularly, why not be promoted to admin? MC (MyComputer) 17:25, July 9, 2015 (UTC)
  • As I said before, 558 has administrative skills, he wasn't promoted before because it was an election between him an Sam, Sam ended up winning, so now it's 558's time. He will certainly do it well, my vote is clearly positive. EagleIcon AndreEagle17 PS3 Triangle PS3 Cross PS3 Circle 17:32, July 9, 2015 (UTC)
  • You have all the credentials and are a brilliant user. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 17:44, July 9, 2015 (UTC)
  • No question. Sam Talk 17:46, July 9, 2015 (UTC)
  • Not a fan of his attitude sometimes (especially towards me), and he could do with some simple grammar corrections from time to time, but I suppose being an Admin won't harm :) --Monkeypolice188-Signature LSPD Loudhailer-V-render StunGun-GTA5-ingame 17:53, July 9, 2015 (UTC)
  • All I can say is you are a great editor and will be a good admin. You deserve to be an admin. Myth(Leave your threats here/Want to Stalk?) 18:45, July 9, 2015 (UTC)
  • Best choice next to Sam during the administrator election, and it wasn't his time then, but I think now is his time. Leo68 (talk) 00:27, July 10, 2015 (UTC)
  • With almost everyone saying Yes, I guess that sounds stupid if I said No XD. I have no words because everyone explained here why. Body Armor Android SWAT Cam F Torpedo Android Dispatch Detonator Android Data Files Crate Android 00:59, July 10, 2015 (UTC)

Smashbro8 - Bureaucrat

Closed as successful by Leo68 (talk) 01:19, July 9, 2015 (UTC)

Hi everyone and fellow wiki friends. After seeing the resignation of one of our earliest bureaucrats, I decided to send this request to be a bureaucrat and help lead the wiki the correct way. Over the few months of me being an admin, I did become less active in actually editing pages, but I continue to show up here everyday to make sure the wiki is running smoothly. I feel as a bureaucrat, I could help the community much more than as an admin, and welcome thousands of new users to the GTA Wiki. Leave your votes and comments below. Thanks in addition for reading this. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 22:02, July 7, 2015 (UTC)Smashbro8

  • I feel you are more than able to take role of Bureaucrat. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 22:18, July 7, 2015 (UTC)
  • No protests from me. Active daily, both in editing and in chat, hard working, plenty of experience and an admin on several wikis. Yes from me. Leo68 (talk) 22:19, July 7, 2015 (UTC)
  • Everybody here knows that he is my friend but that's not the sole reason, it's because, out of the five admins, Jamal is really the best one, considering that he always block troublesome users and rename/delete pages, he has been the best admin since his promotion, I think he deserves it more than all the others. EagleIcon AndreEagle17 PS3 Triangle PS3 Cross PS3 Circle 02:04, July 8, 2015 (UTC)
  • Smash is practically a good user and knows how to work here, not to mentioning that he got respect from everyone in the staff. If he said "Yes" in my promotion, I'll say him the same thing. Body Armor Android SWAT Cam F Torpedo Android Dispatch Detonator Android Data Files Crate Android 02:18, July 8, 2015 (UTC)

  • I cannot think of anyone better to take my place. It's a yes from me. Messi1983 (talk) 08:20, July 8, 2015 (UTC)

Messi1983 - Demotion

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)

    • 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.Myth hunter
  • Of all the Myths wiki representatives, Hunter is the only one who actually helps this wiki, by editing articles and reporting vandals, I think he deserves the spot. Signature (talk/stalk/blog) 15:31, April 21, 2015 (UTC)
  • I've thought about it, and I'm putting my faith in you. However, taking into account what Leon said about your previous ban, I think probation would be best. SJWalker (talk) 15:33, April 21, 2015 (UTC)
