Technical

Administrators are users with the technical ability on Wikimedia Commons to:

  • delete and undelete images and other uploaded files, and to view and restore deleted versions
  • delete and undelete pages, and to view and restore deleted revisions
  • protect and unprotect pages, and to edit admin-protected pages
  • block and unblock users, individual IP addresses and IP address ranges
  • edit the MediaWiki namespace
  • rename files
  • add and remove usergroups
  • configure Upload Wizard campaigns
  • delete and undelete specific log entries and revisions of pages
  • import pages from other wikis
  • merge the history of pages
  • modify abuse filters
  • not create redirects from source pages when moving pages
  • override the spoofing checks and title or username blacklist
  • send a message to multiple users at once (massmessage)
  • use higher limits in API queries

These are collectively known as the admin tools.

Community role

Administrators are experienced and trusted members of the Commons community who have taken on additional maintenance work and have been entrusted with the admin tools by public consensus/vote. Different admins have different areas of interest and expertise, but typical admin tasks include determining and closing deletion requests, deleting copyright violations, undeleting files where necessary, protecting Commons against vandalism, and working on templates and other protected pages. Of course, some of these tasks can be done by non-admins as well.

Administrators are expected to understand the goals of this project, and be prepared to work constructively with others towards those ends. Administrators should also understand and follow Commons' policies, and where appropriate, respect community consensus.

Apart from roles which require use of the admin tools, administrators have no special editorial authority by virtue of their position, and in discussions and public votes their contributions are treated in the same way as any ordinary editor. Of course, some admins are influential, but that derives not from their position as such but from the personal trust they have gained from the community.

Suggestions for administrators

Please read Commons:Guide to adminship.

Removal of administrator rights

Under the de-admin policy, administrator rights may be revoked due to inactivity or misuse of sysop tools.

Apply to become an administrator

First, go to Commons:Administrators/Howto and read the information there. Then come back here and make your request in the section below.

  • After clicking on the appropriate button and creating the subpage, copy the link to the subpage, e.g. "Commons:Administrators/Requests/Username", edit Commons:Administrators/Requests and paste it in at the top of the section, then put it in double curly brackets (e.g. {{Commons:Administrators/Requests/Username}} ) to transclude it.
  • If someone else nominated you, please accept the nomination by stating "I accept" or something similar, and signing below the nomination itself. The subpage will still need to be transcluded by you or your nominator.
Use the box below, replacing Username with your username:



Voting

Any registered user may vote here although those who have few or no previous edits may not be fully counted. It is preferable if you give reasons both for Symbol support vote.svg Support votes or Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose ones as this will help the closing bureaucrat in their decision. Greater weight is given to an argument, with supporting evidence if needed, than to a simple vote.

Promotion normally requires at least 75% in favour, with a minimum of 8 support votes. Votes from unregistered users are not counted. However, the closing bureaucrat has discretion in judging community consensus, and the decision will not necessarily be based on the raw numbers.

Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral comments are not counted in the vote totals for the purposes of calculating pass/fail percentages. However such comments are part of the discussion, may persuade others, and contribute to the closing bureaucrat's understanding of community consensus.

Riley Huntley

Riley Huntley (talk · contributions · deleted user contributions · recent activity · logs · block log · global contribs · SULinfo)

Scheduled to end: 18:39, (UTC)

I would like to present Riley Huntley as our next candidate for adminship. With more than 200k edits and 3500 in the Commons namespace, he is one of our most active editors. Besides assisting the community with bot/work requests and being on the OTRS team, Riley is active in [un]deletion requests process so granting him the tools will reduce the admin backlog. Currently we need more active admins who are willing to deal with those tasks since the admin backlogs are getting bigger and bigger.

Aside from the large amounts of maintenance work he performs, his main project Commons:WikiProject Pronunciation has led to the improvement of hundreds of thousands of existing files. He also is an experienced bot operator which is a huge pro since bots can make admin work more effective and help saving time.

In my opinion Riley is quite familiar with copyright law in general and he always does a proper job and when he states his opinion it is always clearly motivated. An extra bonus is that Riley is active during the European nights. We still need more admins covering that timezone. Natuur12 (talk) 18:39, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Thank you the nomination, Natuur12, I accept your kind words and thank everyone for their time while considering me as a candidate for adminship. I was originally drawn to Commons back in 2012 to host my photography that I was interested in using cross wiki. After releasing I wasn't much of a photographer (although I have 10 QIs to my name), my contributions evolved into maintenance which I have enjoyed ever since. Expanding on Natuur12's nomination, I am highly involved in BRFA processes, automated tasks and other "technical" areas. I'm also actively involved at COM:DR, COM:UDR and often can be found requesting speedy deletion in accordance with COM:CSD. If elected to be admin, I would continue my involvement in these areas while also attempting to fight the ever growing admin backlog. Thank you everyone for your consideration.

If you work with templates you often break them, but I also thought it was funny that the edit that broke them was a stern warning not to do edits without discussing changes first. --Jarekt (talk) 11:49, 3 May 2016 (UTC)
