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 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.

Axe Hack




  1. Though the seat hasn't quite conformed to your posterior as much as it has with boxy, there's no doubt that it's yours. You do a good job at what you do, namely handling promotions in a fair manner. Aichon 22:47, 22 June 2012 (BST)
  2. This seat needs Ross's assprint embedded in it. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 23:31, 22 June 2012 (BST)
    Next person to write slashfic about me is getting banned. I'm not even kidding. --Rosslessness 00:12, 23 June 2012 (BST)
    As Axe's lips moved closer to the chocolate bar that he had been enjoying while walking alongside Ross through the parking lot, Ross looked on with rapt attention, his membership card quivering in his hand in anticipation of what was to come, since he would need to present his card to the greeter at the door of the members only club. Aichon 00:34, 23 June 2012 (BST)
  3. Ross' quivering sphincter ached, yearning for the long satisfying penetration that can only be given in the 'Bureaucrat position'... --Unhappydisgustingwow 01:53, 23 June 2012 (BST)
