This page contains an assortment of tables that I've created or borrowed re RFA. some figures change monthly and others less frequently, anyone is welcome to help keep these updated. Redesigns and expansions are best discussed on the talkpage first. If I go inactive for more than three months then I would be delighted if another editor saw this as sufficiently valuable to move it to Wikipedia space and take over maintaining and developing it.

Notes
  1. ^ By 2015 admins had started deleting "NotNow" RFAs which artificially reduces the unsuccessful figure
  2. ^ a b Early RFAs were done by Email and only the successes are known
  3. ^ 33 had been appointed in early 2002
  4. ^ Figures for unsuccessfuls for 2002 to 2003 are not available

On the counting of admins[edit]

Nobody really knows how many admin accounts there have been on the English Wikipedia, or how many actual people they represent. Some stats include admin bots, others do not. If an admin has their account renamed they are still one admin, but if they leave and return with a new account and have that sysoped then some stats count them as two admins. As of August 2, 2010, we have had at least 1,920 admins appointed (not including bots) but records for the early days are incomplete. We have 1,741 accounts with an admin flag (including bots), of whom 802 are active as editors, and 2,019 editors are recorded as carrying out admin actions on the English Wikipedia since Dec 2004, but if a protected page is moved, the automated moving of the protection settings is counted as a page protection and is listed under the username of the person who moved the page, whether or not they are actually an admin. Also, stewards can act as admins on enwiki. Nowadays developers and other staff members have a "staff" flag, but some early staff members were simply made admins, and at least one measure of our number of admins would include any of them if they made an admin action. About one new admin per day was promoted from mid-2005 to mid-March 2008; this pattern oscillated between half and a fifth of that rate until late 2009, and since then the promotion rate has dropped to one every five days.
