Wiki creators
This page provides information on Meta-Wiki Wiki creators (wikicreator), and lays out relevant policies.

Wiki creators are users who can approve or decline wiki requests. They can access Special:CreateWiki, and see an extra form on any wiki request.

There are currently 13 wiki creators.

Appointment

Users may be nominated or nominate themselves for the role of wiki creator by placing a request on Meta:Requests for permissions. Whenever the nomination is accepted (if nominated by someone else, otherwise submitting the request is immediate acceptation), a request must stay open for at least three (3) days. During this period anyone from the community members having created an account prior to the permissions request in question may vote   Support,   Neutral or   Oppose on a candidate's request. They may also choose to add questions or comments to the request.

Unlike some other user groups, there is no minimum support percentage for the wiki creator role. A Steward will close the request and make a decision based on the comments from community members.

Removal of rights

Inactivity

Wiki creators who have not contributed to the community in any form for at least three months, may have their rights removed. For the purposes of activity which is counted, only edits and log actions on Meta Wiki are taken into consideration.

Revocation

A wiki creator's rights may be removed by a Steward should the wiki creator:

  1. Repeatedly violated the Content Policy when creating wikis;
  2. Demonstrated clearly that they have mainly created wikis for their own use and are not focused on their role of creating wikis for other users;
  3. Repeatedly violated the Code of Conduct or any other global policies; or,
  4. Repeatedly created wikis with inadequate descriptions which could not possibly have allowed them to determine whether they would violate the Content Policy and/or which have caused an excessive amount of work for Stewards and/or Global Sysops as a result.
    The fourth criterion may or may not also involve the first criterion, but is a lower threshold and relates to a wiki creator repeatedly creating wikis apparently indiscriminately without apparent regard for wiki requests having sufficient descriptions. In such cases, as would be the case in the first three criteria, wiki creators would be formally warned by one or more Stewards

Additionally, the rights may also be removed by a system administrator if the wiki creator (potentially) causes damage (from a technical view) or creates unreasonable workload for System administrators. If you feel a wiki creator is misusing their privileges, please contact a Steward.

Readdition of rights

Wiki creators who have had their rights removed by a Steward or system administrator, regardless of reason, may request their rights back by following the Appointment procedure.

System administrators

System administrators (see this page for a list of current system administrators) may be granted these privileges without community appointment and are also exempt from any activity requirements. However, the inactivity exemption ends immediately from the moment a user is no longer in the system administrator user group.
