This page is for users to request System Operator status. The act of user promotion is restricted to those with bureaucrat status, and as such users will need to request user promotion here. System Operators and Bureaucrats cannot assign promotions unless the request has gone through this page.

Guidelines for System Operator Requests

Users who wish to request System Operator status (and users who wish to nominate other users for System Operator status) should note that before they can be considered the following guidelines should be met by the candidate:

  • Significant time within the community.
We define this as at least 6 months since the candidate's first edit.
Note: looking in a User's User contributions might give false results for this criterion, as the edit history is periodically purged on this wiki.
  • Significant activity within the community.
We define this as at least 250 edits in the past six months under the candidate's name.
Note: looking in a User's User contributions might give false results for this criterion, as the edit history is periodically purged on this wiki.
  • Prior interest in maintaining the community.
We define this as clear evidence that the candidate is already performing maintenance tasks and taking leadership roles on the wiki.
  • Desire to become a System Operator.
We define this simply as indicating in the candidate's request their desire for the position (Note that if a person is nominated by another user, the candidate in question should note their acceptance of the nomination).

If a user is highly exemplary in one criterion, a certain amount of leeway may be given with the other criteria.

Once the candidate satisfies these guidelines, the user is then subject to a community discussion. All users are asked to comment on the candidate in question, ask questions of the candidate, and discuss the candidate's suitability for becoming a System Operator. This is not a vote. It is instead merely a request for comments from the wiki community. This will continue for two weeks to allow all users an opportunity to voice their opinion regarding a candidate's qualifications for promotion. After two weeks, the Bureaucrats are responsible for announcing their decision within a reasonably short period of time. Users may continue to add their thoughts until the Bureaucrats announce their decision. The current amount of System Operators running should not influence your decisions when voicing your opinion.

Once the two weeks are up, the Bureaucrats will review the community discussion and make a decision based upon it. The user will be notified of the status of their request, and will be promoted should it appear that the community is willing to accept them as a System Operator.

Example Application

Example User

I've been around 3 months, and I've made to date 550 edits. As you can see [link here] and [link here], I've been in the leadership role attempting to create a new format for this page. I'd very much like to become a System Operator.

  • Vouch - Example User is the most active guy here. --Another user 19:01, 25 July 2006 (BST)
  • Abstain - I'm just not sure, but I don't want to say why for some reason. --Some other user 19:01, 25 July 2006 (BST)
  • Question - I just want to know what you think about this subject? --Yet another user 21:26, 4 April 2013 (BST)

Candidates Being Discussed


Hagnat woke me up after not even looking at UD for like 10 years and he's all asking about mudkipz and stuff on my talk page. This obviously means he wants to be nominated for sysop, as one does. I don't care if he's qualified or not, he's old school and you'd be damn lucky to have him and his brazilian ass, or whatever... He's from there, not that he shaves his tuches bare, but if he does, thats cool too.. I don't judge. But seriously, he knows how to delete important historical pages, and argue about stupid shit, which was the bread and butter of the UDwiki. MUDWGA!

Last time you updated the wiki, you tried to get me banned. Now you try to get me promoted! Make up your mind!!!
I will accept this promotion bid if we get the gold in the basket --hagnat 14:01, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Question One of the criteria above is "250 edits in the last six months". Although we treat the criteria flexibly, why would you say your activity level (by my count, 250 edits in the last six years) should be set aside in evaluation for this bid? Bob Moncrief EBDW! 14:14, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
    • That long ? sheesh, i could swear i was more active in 2014.
    • If promoted i will build a better wall to protect us against the Ghouls, who keep invading Malton to steal the jobs of our poor zmobies. And that would require the psyops powers, like i needed before when i delet--- DEL DEL DEL... organized some historical administration pages --hagnat 14:45, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
  • How many toes do you have? --  AHLGTG THE END IS NIGH! 02:28, 11 July 2019 (UTC)
    • i dont keep track of all the toes i have, since they are all gathered in a bloody sack full of toes. --hagnat 16:04, 13 July 2019 (UTC)
  • I'm pretty square, so I came here expecting to be annoyed... But you've both taken me on a wonderful and funny trip down memory lane. Vouch. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION 06:22, 11 July 2019 (UTC)
    • hurray for memory lanes :D --hagnat 16:04, 13 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Against - 2009 was a long time ago. Also Brazil rigged the Copa America, so I'm against this in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Lionel Messi. --LordMoloch (talk) 00:00, 17 July 2019 (UTC)
    • Messi would complain even if he won --hagnat 19:35, 17 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Vouch The Hagnificent will usher in a new age of peace and prosperity in Malton. Also free pie. You will be giving out free pie, right Hagnat? My vouch is contingent upon it. --RWSig1.png RWSig2.pngFoD PK Praise Rando!04:51, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
