FAQ

What is a Bureaucrat?
A bureaucrat (aka. crat) is a user with the ability to promote and demote users for sysop and bureaucrat positions. The Urban Dead Wiki mantains two active bureaucrats at all times, with elections occurring every three months to promote a sysop into bureaucrat, filling the position of the one who has least recently had an election.
A bureaucrat whose position is being filled can run for reelection, with no limits on how many times a bureaucrat can remain in the position.
Can I become a Bureaucrat?
Only System Operators (aka sysop) can become bureaucrats. Users who are part of the Urban Dead Wiki community for a set period of time and which have made a certain number of edits can be promoted to sysop, as long as they get the rest of the community support. For more information on how to become a sysop, read the sysop promotions page.
System Operators can become bureaucrat if elected by the community. A sysop needs to be active in the previous months of the election in order to run for crat. If he becomes active AFTER the election begun, he will only be able to run for 'crat in the next election.
Can I vote?
Any user can vote. Unless said otherwise, you can only vote in one candidate per election, and any user who vote more than once will have all their votes stricken.
Can I vote for myself?
If you are a sysop and eligible for voting, you can vote for yourself.

Rules

Rules for starting an election.
  1. When a Bureaucrat resigns, or loses his status due to demotion or inactivity an election is started immediately.
    • A Bureaucrat that hasn't made a single edit in one month is considered to be inactive and forfeits their status as bureaucrat.
  2. After 3 months with no elections on a bureaucrat position, an election is called for the bureaucrat position longest without an election.
  3. If, for any reason, an individual Bureaucrat position hasn't faced an election after 8 months, then an election is called after that period.
  4. The election ends after two weeks wiki time counting from the when the election is started.
  5. The candidate with the most votes wins the election.
  6. In the event of a tied vote the remaining bureaucrats will decide between the tied candidates.
Rules concerning candidates
  1. All active users with the sysops status are automatically declared candidates for any vacant Bureaucrat positions.
    • Users with at least 12 edits in the 30 days before the election are considered "active" for purposes of the election.
  2. The Bureaucrat whose position comes up for election if said election is started under rule 2 of Rules for starting an election is automatically declared a candidate.
    • Unless said otherwise, a bureaucrat who lost its powers through demotion cannot run for bureaucrat on the election that will fill its position
  3. A candidate can retract his own candidacy at any time.
Rules concerning voting.
  1. All users have only one vote per bureaucrat position to be filled.
  2. Users vote for a candidate by signing under the preferred candidates name.
    • Users can't cast more than one vote per candidate.
  3. Users may change their votes for a candidate as long as the election has not ended.
    • Multiple votes at the same time will be struck.
  4. Sockpuppetry is considered vandalism.

Election Space

The next election (assuming we have no demotions or resignations) will begin on January 21, 2013. Aichon 23:08, 24 October 2012 (BST)

Eligible Candidates

Karek

  1. A ZOMBIE ANT 02:55, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
  2. -- boxy 10:47, 21 January 2013 (BST)
  3. While I think Spider has probably been the best sysop among the candidates these last few months (more even-keeled and active than Karek; more experienced (and willing to vote for others :P) than Shortround), I tend to think that Karek would be a better 'crat. Honestly, Karek and I are about as different as they get. He and I disagree a lot...which is exactly why I think this would work and what I think we could use. Since Bureaucrats only really have the power to veto decisions, deadlocks get avoided while dissenting concerns still get raised. Win-win. Plus, whereas I'm mostly seeking to maintain or return things to the status quo most of the time (i.e. a path that eventually leads to stagnation), Karek tends not to be, which is something we could use. Spider is a good guy, but I can't shake the feeling that if I voted for him, I'd primarily be doing it as a reward for being the best sysop, rather than because he'd be best in the role. Aichon 21:45, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
  4. Karek has been around the longest and has a strict way of thinking. His seen what kind of sysops work and which don't, so he'd be a good crat.--Shortround }.{ My Contributions 22:25, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
  5. Sometimes I get logged out somehow and I just kind of not come back until it randomly shows as logged in again. I have no way of explaining how it happens nor do I care. Also, you guys don't have to put spaces after the pound sign.--SA 20:01, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
  6. If Shortround doesn't believe in himself anymore, I'm forced to pick the lesser of the 2 weevils.--THE Godfather of Яesensitized, Anime Sucks Yalk | W! U! WMM| CC CPFOAS DORISFlag.jpg LOE ZHU | Яezzens 06:24, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
  7. I've returned very briefly only to maintain this election as a tie. OK. I'm done. See ya in a few months, UDWiki! PS: I've already got my next account lined up. ;D --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 00:56, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
    What a fucking surprise. They never lynch children, babies—no matter what they do they are whitewashed in advance 03:05, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

Shortround

Rage against the machine! --Shortround }.{ My Contributions 01:53, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
can u self vote? very tacky.-- HEY! HANDS OFF MAH BOOBS!   bitch   COBRA!   אמת 05:58, 21 January 2013
Yeah its in teh rules. ~Vsig.png 06:02, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
I don't know who you are enough to dislike you. --THE Godfather of Яesensitized, Anime Sucks Yalk | W! U! WMM| CC CPFOAS DORISFlag.jpg LOE ZHU | Яezzens 07:33, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
  1. Iäh! Iäh! Short-Niggurath, black spambot of the woods! -- Spiderzed 17:46, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

Spiderzed

For the record, I don't plan to withdraw, and feel not just most likely, but also ready and willing to pick up the mantle. -- Spiderzed 18:12, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

  1. Ross has expressed multiple times no desire to run, so Spiderzed has the best remaining combination of experience and activity. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 00:59, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
  2. Speederzid. --  AHLGTG 03:42, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
  3. box who?-- HEY! HANDS OFF MAH BOOBS!   bitch   COBRA!   אמת 05:44, 21 January 2013
  4. so what would happen if you all withdrew? ~Vsig.png 16:25, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
    I win. Aichon 17:38, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
    Aichon coup without all that nasty misconduct. ~Vsig.png 18:09, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
    Of course, my first act would be to write a policy that allowed us to elect a new Bureaucrat somehow, since it's lonely at the top. Aichon 21:48, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
    You should really learn to be more evil. ~Vsig.png 00:16, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
  5. I assume Karek has no real interest, and shortround self voted, which is laaaaaaaaaaaaame, so Spiderzed gets my complete and undomesticated support. --Rosslessness 18:45, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
    Eh, I'd do it if voted to it. Much like most things but no, not really. It's never been something I've actively sought out. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 20:34, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
    The thing is I feel spider is a good counter to A. --Rosslessness 18:34, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
  6. *Splat!* Petite Fille 12:02, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
  7. +1 Spiderzed Gordon 18:39, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
  8. I can't vote for Ross. I can't vote for Boxy. What else am I supposed to do? --AORDMOPRI ! T 20:16, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
    You don't vote at all because you're ruining my attempts to create a draw this election. And also delaying my debut of my new account. Grr! Argh! *shaking fist* --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 20:41, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
    Umm...rule #6 at the top? If it's a tie, Karek is going to win unless someone can convince me otherwise before the voting concludes. Aichon 21:50, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
    I know that. But at least the final voting results will be a draw. :3 --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 23:16, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

Ineligible Candidates

  • Aichon - Current bureaucrat
  • Revenant - <12 edits in the last 30 days
    But he's still alive right? --Thadeous Oakley Talk 14:52, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

Withdrawn Candidates

Boxy

  1. Why would anyone not vote for a box in the bureau? --Karekmaps 2.0?! 04:36, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
  2. Crat4Life. Well sorta. ~Vsig.png 05:50, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

I don't take enough notice of the personalities (or the wiki) to do the job proper, like -- boxy 10:47, 21 January 2013 (BST)

Rosslessness

  1. Everyone else are either Douchebags, Unknowns, or work at Best Buy--THE Godfather of Яesensitized, Anime Sucks Yalk | W! U! WMM| CC CPFOAS DORISFlag.jpg LOE ZHU | Яezzens 00:39, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
  2. Fuck you, buddy. They never lynch children, babies—no matter what they do they are whitewashed in advance 01:55, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

Candidate expressed a clear desire to not run. Aichon 04:16, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

Weirdly today I managed to acquire a new Girlfriend. COINCIDENCE???? --Rosslessness 18:44, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

You probably shouldn't admit to abduction on the internet, I hear they look into that these days. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 19:20, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
This is why UDWiki will always be my first love. --Rosslessness 19:27, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
Ok, I'm glad I wasn't the only one reading it that way. It sounds to me like Ross has a collection of them or something. Aichon 19:38, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
