Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is used to close a Request for adminship (RfA) that has failed.

Note: Similar to non-administrators closing deletion discussions, Requests for adminship can be closed by non-bureaucrats in certain cases; for example if the user has withdrawn the request or the outcome is very unlikely to be positive (see WP:NOTNOW). Non-bureaucrats should be very careful in the latter case and only close RfAs when they are not in doubt. In such cases the requesting user should always be asked to consider withdrawal first.

Also, please review RfX closing procedures.


Place the {{subst:rfaf}} template at the very top of the RfA page, and then place {{subst:rfab}} at the bottom of the RfA page.

IMPORTANT: You must use {{subst:rfaf}} and {{subst:rfab}} templates in concert with the {{subst:finaltally}} template.

# '''Opppose''' – This candidate is insufficiently qualified for Adminship, based on their ''extremely'' low edit count. --{{User|Example3}}

# '''Neutral''' – Moral support. But I don't think you're ready yet. {{User|Example5}}
