Meta bureaucrats are users who can manage permissions such as bot, administrator and other bureaucrats. Their role on Meta is limited to the assigning of the rights listed above. They may resolve disputes and determine consensus in RfCs, user right requests and user removal requests.


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 Symbol support vote.svg Support, Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral or Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose a candidate's request.

A request will be deemed successful when closed by an existing bureaucrat after achieved a 70% support ratio.


A bureaucrat may lose their permissions if:

  • a request of no confidence is opened against the user and has a more than 50% support ratio,
  • the user loses their administrator status.


There are no clauses for re-addition except for re-appointment following the appointment criteria above.
