    • 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 12 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

    • 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.

    • Multiple votes at the same time will be struck.
  4. Sockpuppetry is considered vandalism.

The next bureaucrat election will start on 1 April 2010, at 0:11 or something for DDR's position. I'm probably wrong, so someone should correct me. --ZsL 00:43, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

With pleasure. I believe my terms ends in March. -- 14:14, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

January 1st + 3 months = April 1st.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 15:41, 15 January 2010 (UTC)
Meh. I was promoted halfway through September so for the last 3 months I've considered it that. I didn't take into account the time it took to do Box's bid. -- 22:16, 15 January 2010 (UTC)
My birthday, actually. Don't change it! --  AHLGTG 02:37, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
I got it right? Nice. --ZsL 17:21, 30 January 2010 (UTC)
Yep. First a christmas election, then an April Fool's election. Hurrah! -- 22:08, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Election started at 01:26, 1 April 2010 (BST) and it will finish at around 1 o'clock 15th April (BST). -- 01:26, 1 April 2010 (BST)

  1. Someone who I actually trust to be impartial, unbiased and otherwise fair in his rulings, all traits the last bureaucrat definitely didn't have. --Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 08:26, 1 April 2010 (BST)
    It's almost like your entire existence on this wiki is geared towards making offhand and wrong comments about me. If it were anyone else I'd consider taking a hint but since it's you I'm actually flattered. -- 11:47, 1 April 2010 (BST)

Misanthropy (talk | contribs | logs | block | IP Check | vndl data | discuss)

  1. Since his promotion, Misanthropy has been one of the only constants on the admin team. Boxy is usually always around to help but since his uncharacteristic absence Mis's presence has been greatly valued by me. I like the stuff Ross has been doing, but as a crat I had to be present on UDWiki even when I didn't really want to, I would probably trust Mis a bit more to stick around. -- 02:08, 1 April 2010 (BST)
  2. Since I've known Mis, since late '06, he's always been helpful and trustworthy. And the UDwiki seems to be his second home, so I feel he'll be the best choice for Bureaucrat Lord Gothika 15:34, 1 April 2010 (BST)

  8. Put the guy to work on the wiki and get him off the streets. Women, children and undead farm animals will thank you for it. Dr Killdare 04:04, 2 April 2010 (BST)
  9. Mis is the right man for the job. Not only has he been heavily involved with the wiki, but he's remained prominent in the UD community as a whole. Go forth and conquer the world, Misanthropy. --ZiPbeep boopMH+LUE 04:06, 2 April 2010 (BST)
  10. Ever since I've known Mis he's been hard at work. Wore all my whips out and still kept going! He needs more work.--AU10Pantomime Mistress of Pain┌∩┐()┌∩┐ 04:27, 2 April 2010 (BST)
  11. Really tough call here, but I'll go with Mis, because his bribe came in a nicer envelope. --Papa Moloch 11:25, 2 April 2010 (BST)
  12. i really thought mis was a girl.. but now that i find out he is a guy.. i guess i should change my vote... ah fuck it i'm too lazy. vote stands.----sexualharrisonStarofdavid2.png ¯\(Boobs.gif)/¯ 12:38, 2 April 2010 (BST)

  13. Always been a good user, although I'm afraid that he'll demote himself if we promote him. Linkthewindow  Talk  07:26, 2 April 2010 (BST)
    Since I've actually got the degree now, I have no excuse to ever be demoted again. This scares me. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 09:55, 2 April 2010 (BST)

  14. For great justice. --Sophie ◆◆◆ CAPD 10:35, 2 April 2010 (BST)
  15. Someone else who I actually trust to be impartial, unbiased and otherwise fair in his rulings, all traits the last bureaucrat definitely didn't have to my opinion. Also I would like to ask Ross something, Question; is there a difference in work and attitude for you between being a sysops and becoming Bureacrat?--Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 12:54, 2 April 2010 (BST)
    Ooh. A question. Personally I feel its a much larger step between regular user and sysop, than between sysop and Crat. The ability to promote/demote users is one of the most open processes on the wiki, it should be about community input. The buttons that can cause real damage like checkuser and delete are already at your disposal. As for attitude Have a look at my own votes on pretty much every sysop bid, or the projects I'm currently running. Basically I try to encourage more people to get involved in the daily life of the wiki. Crats have more power, but they have to earn that right. I don't feel you can change your attitude when you become a crat, its not about how you treat the community but how the community perceives you. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 16:49, 2 April 2010 (BST)
  16. - KyleStyle 18:05, 2 April 2010 (BST)
  17. Aichon and my Mamah KyleStyle have vouched for him so that's a good sign. Active and seems to be impartial. -- Papa Jadkor (RRF) (MotA) (MT11) 18:54, 2 April 2010 (BST)
  18. Rosslessness has been around long enough I think he understands the way this crazy little corner of the internet works. I say we see what he can do to shape it up. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 19:59, 3 April 2010 (BST)
  19. Rätt man för rätt jobb. Infrastructure 21:20, 3 April 2010 (BST)
  20. After carefully considering all of the options I've decided ross is going to win and I don't want to be on his revenge list when he makes 'crat.--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 12:29, 4 April 2010 (BST)
    Ah, bandwagonning. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 15:57, 4 April 2010 (BST)

  25. Useless vote, but he's the best for the job.-- Adward  18:34, 8 April 2010 (BST)
    No such thing as a useless vote, we've already had more votes in this first week than we had in the whole of the last crat election. Good to see some life in the old wiki. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 21:56, 8 April 2010 (BST)
