Interwiki administrators are users who can edit the interwiki table upon request, but not the global list which remains restricted to Meta administrators. Interwiki administrators can be global (able to edit any wikis) or local (only able to edit certain wikis).
Interwiki admins are required to check every link before they add it to Special:Interwiki, to make sure it is not malicious.
Requests for changing Interwiki should be made on Community noticeboard if no local interwiki administrators exist on the wiki.
Eligibility criteria and requesting
Global interwiki administrators
Interwiki administrators are voted by users. However, the following conditions must be met in order for the user to be eligible to be voted. If these conditions are not met, the user may not be a candidate for
interwiki-admin and any support votes will not matter. A candidate must:
- Have at least 1000 total global edits on Miraheze (on more than one wiki) (Note: These edits may not consist of directly copy/pasting content from other wikis, they must be edits done by the user);
- Have had their Miraheze account for at least 2 months; and,
- Be involved in some way in community matters (in discussions on Community Noticeboard, etc.)
Requests for global Interwiki administrator should be made on Requests for global rights
Local interwiki administrators
Local interwiki administrators must meet the following conditions prior to requesting:
bureaucratrights on the local wiki;
- Have had a Miraheze account for (a) at least two (2) weeks prior to requesting or (b) the two (2) month global user longevity requirement above;
- Have made either (a) 500 edits on the local wiki where requested or (b) the 1,000 global edit requirement above; and,
- Comply with any additional local rules governing the selection of local interwiki administrators
Requests for local interwiki administrator should be on the suitable local venue on the wiki and a Steward informed of the request after the local election is complete (steward discretion, in accordance with non-codified global conventions, applies with respect to the minimum time period a local election is to remain open). Note there is currently no minimum support ratio for a successful election, and an election by acclamation is possible when the local election concludes.
interwiki-admin adds any malicious site to interwiki, they can immediately be revoked without warning.
