Meta administrators are users who have been granted the technical ability to perform certain actions on Meta (some of which include deleting/undeleting pages, protecting/unprotecting pages and blocking/unblocking users). Their role is mainly to help Meta users and the community, as well as to maintain and protect it from vandalism and make sure that local policies are respected.
Users may be nominated or nominate themselves 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 seven (7) days. During this period anyone from the Community may Support, Neutral or Oppose a candidate's request.
A request will be deemed successful when closed by a bureaucrat after having achieved a 70% support ratio.
An administrator may lose their permissions if:
- a request of no confidence in opened against the user and has a more than 50% support ratio,
- the user is inactive from the community for a period of 6 months.
There are no clauses for re-addition except for re-appointment following the appointment criteria above.
