|This page documents a Miraheze global policy, this policy follows consensus and/or Staff guidelines. All Miraheze users should follow it, and changes made to it should be discussed on the talk page.|
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 may vote Support, Neutral or Oppose on a candidate's 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 the Community.
Wiki creators who have not contributed to the community in any form for at least three months, may have their rights removed.
A wiki creator's rights may be removed by a steward shall a wiki creator repeatedly violate the Content Policy when creating wikis. 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 (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 group.
