Rights are permissions enabled for certain users that allow them to do certain things. This page is an encyclopedia about rights: It lists the permissions given for rights, it lists the requirements, and it gives a space for Admins and B-crats to nominate other users they deem worthy for rights.

These requirements are needed to be nominated for the various rights. Note that the requirements for rights, other than B-crat and Admin, do not necessarily have to be met. There is definitely a high possibility of a user being nominated before the requirements stated here are met; It is mainly the nominator's decision. The requirements for Admin or B-crat rights, however, are the minimal requirements among plenty of others. The full policy can be viewed here:

Nomination area

In this area, users that have Administrator and/or Bureaucrat rank may nominate an user to be considered for the rights. The community may then vote by placing four tildes (~~~~) below the second that they agree with and (optionally) a reason for supporting, remaining neutral, or opposing.

The voting system works as such: Each nominated user starts out with a score of 0. Each Supportive vote is worth 1 point, each Opposed vote is worth -1 points and each Neutral vote is worth 0 points. At the end of the voting (which comes about one week, maybe less, after the nomination is posted) the score will be counted. If it is less than 0, the user does not get the rights; if it is more than 0, they do get the rights.

Deleting another user's vote is grounds for a ban, as is posting a nomination if you have no rights. You may vote for yourself, but you cannot nominate yourself.

How to Vote

  1. Edit the area you're supporting. (Support, Neutral, Opposed)
  2. Write a sentence with a few words why you think the user should be nominated or just leave your signature.
  3. Select publish, and you're done!

Nominations

Moderator tor Mattlink

With many of the former staff leaving, it has been hard for me to maintain the wiki by myself. GabeHas1 has been a great help , but I believe that we need more staff and Mattlink would be a great addition.

Support

  • Brick Creeper 01:57, August 3, 2016 (UTC)
  • I have not been on the Wiki for long, but Mattlink has always pointed out any mistakes I have made, in a friendly and helpful way. I support.~ Booshroom
  • Mattlink has helped me with many of my bad ideas. He helped me out a lot back then. I support him for that reason and believe he'd be a great addition to the staff. Good luck Matt! Anarchy (talk) 02:23, August 15, 2016 (UTC)MettatonNeo44
  • Apart from randomly hibernating occasionally, Mattlink has basically nothing that could go against a moderator position. I've never seen him say anything rude to any other user. He came in with great pages, he never needed to get pointed to the rules once. He has never started a large project and left it with a bunch of redlinks or unfinished pages. He helps with categories sometimes, too. In other words, yeah I guess he can be a good moderator (lol). ~ Gabe
  • I think Mattlink would be a great moderator. I've always seen him helping others on the wiki, depite me being on the wiki for such a short time.~Wormscarf69
