Admin voting policy[edit]

First of all, I know that I do not vote in many RFAs that I would support by these guidelines. If I see an RFA that is obviously going to fail or (more often applied) pass, or I don't have the time to verify these, I'll skip it unless I know the user. Basically, I have three criteria that I look for in an admin, and yes, I know it's not much:

  • Can the user be trusted to use the admin tools in good faith? (In other words, not do something like vandalize or unprotect the main page)
  • Does the user know Wikipedia policy well enough to not misuse admin tools? (This does not mean that they have to know every single policy and guideline by heart.) Note that this does NOT cover mistakes that could be made by a non-admin; granting the user adminship would have nothing to do with these mistakes.
  • Is the user at least reasonably civil? (In other words, they don't have to go out of their way to say friendly things at every possible chance, but I'd like to see that they don't have a record of violating no personal attacks.)

In borderline cases, the following are my secondary considerations ("extra credit" so to speak.) While they aren't really important themselves (and are by no means requirements to get my vote,) they may influence my vote in "borderline cases" and may influence my degree of support/opposition (strong support, weak support, etc.)

  • Being exceptionally friendly and helpful.
  • Being especially knowledgeable about policy.
  • Experience with RC patrol, AFD, etc.
  • Senority. Being here for over a year is a good sign.
  • A high edit count. While I won't hesitate to vote for someone with only a few hundred edits if they fit my primary criteria, thousands certainly don't hurt and along with time spent here, they are a fair indication of general experience summed up in one number.
  • Article development. Helping put a few articles up to FA status is great.


Here is the Random Acts of Kindness Barnstar for warmly welcoming so many new users. Being nice and going an extra mile to be kind won't hurt at all! — Stevey7788 (talk) 23:45, 13 Jun 2005 (UTC)
